    Went prime time on Friday night with my wife and a friend. Every table and seat at the bar was packed. My friend and I both had burgers, and my wife had the salmon. Everything was over cooked, to the point that my friend could only stomach 1/2 his burger. Wife said the light sauce and veggies were good but the salmon was almost in edible. Luckily the prices are decent, to take the sting away. They did take my friend's burger off the bill. Good beer selection. Ambiance is different; you are eating at a grocery store restaurant partitioned with drapes all around. A cop walked through the place, and there was one visibly intoxicated guy mulling around, topped by a mediocre acoustical set from a musician. Experience was a bit surreal

  • Date night at the "PUB"

    Dined on 3/19/2014
    First time visit on our "date night", with 6:30pm reservations, we were quickly seated, waitress was there to introduce us to the beverage and food selection since it was "happy hour" when we arrived. Service was top notch, with any member of their service staff taking and delivering our drinks and food orders. The pub menu was a good choice for my wife who enjoyed the variety, I had the "Maine" lobster roll with their fries, which was tasty but missed something when comparing it to our "down east" servings, can't put my finger on what was lacking but overall it was just enough to enjoy. Happy hour appears to be a hit, the Pub was filled with patrons of all ages, and they appeared to be enjoying the setting, the beverages and the food.

    Good food. Ambience is better now that they're closing curtains so that you're not reminded so much that you are in a grocery store. Good place to hook up with a friend and talk over a meal. It is a bit noisy, but it is a Pub. I've been there before and the service was great. The last time, not so great. But, could have been a fluke. It's open on a Sunday which is a plus.

    Ok..Wasn't 100% sure what to expect and was in many ways pleasantly surprised. Lobster bisque was respectable...rich and creamy without tasting of butterfat. Salmon was slightly overdone and a bit dry, but flavorful. Skirt steak was expertly seasoned and cooked to perfection as requested. Service was very attentive and a notch above what I expected, extremely accommodating. Very noisy, though; bleedthrough of the live music down the hall mixed with the overhead music, and tables very close together; not a place for a romantic dinner, but definitely a place to grab a dinner and drink with friends. Wine was served at room temperature instead of chilled as a sweet red should be.

    I did not care for how close together the tables were. I heard every single detail of the tables next to us that were complaining the entire time so that made the experience unpleasant. The food was good and the waitress was nice but it took about 20 minutes just to get our drink and I saw the drinks made and sitting at the bar for about 15 minutes. It was just an okay night out.

    The food was fantastic!! I especially loved the sriracha lime wings and curry cauliflower!! Yummy! They had a decent drink selection (although I know nothing about wine). The service was kind and prompt!! I only have 2 complaints 1. This restaurant will need to be bigger!! (It is just so delicious you will eventually need to expand soon!) 2. We need another pub in the Bethlehem Wegmans! I will absolutely be back and soon!! I love Wegmans and this just sweetened the deal!!!

    it was the first time there, the waitress doesn't have any idea about the menu or the drinks , about what they have and haven't. the food was tasteless and bold. my family and i has been a Wegmans Bethlehem daily customer since 2003 , and we were happy to hear about the Pub and we were excited to go there but i was embarrassed as i accompanied with us a friend visiting from CA, the food and service were shockingly below the average and away far from Wegman quality and reputation. it was a very bad experience for me and my guests and i had to apologize from them.

    Was expecting a unique pub experience. What we got was a restaurant a little too close to the grocery market crowd. So much money wasted on a nice bar area that is too close to the beer and wine checkout and automatic doors. Not enough pub type apps and traditional fare. A little pricey for the weird atmosphere. Another down side is there is no parking section just for the pub so we ended up having to park very far away. Sad to say although it is minutes from my home I will not be going back anytime soon.

    This was our 2nd time and it was on a very busy Friday night. We were glad we had reservations, as we got seated within 5 minutes, while others before us were still waiting for a table. Ordered the same cocktail as last time that we loved, but it was not at all like the previous ones. Either wrong cocktail or missing ingredients. The server did not charge us for it. Food was good as usual, though it was a long wait between salad and entrée.

    Mediocrity best describs our experience. Service was acceptable, but not notable. The tomato soup, while freshly made, was bland and had virtually no flavor. The fish and chips were quite good, and while the Steak Tip salad had quality greens, the beef was tough and stringy. My guess is lunch would be OK here for a burger, but I would not recommend this as a restaurant for dinner.

    Service was outstanding, food and price was disappointing. Prices were high for a pub. My prime rib was tough and didn't even come with a vegetable. There was seven of us dinning at the table and our thoughts were all the same, wanted to check the pub at Wegmans out, but we don't need to come back. Oh.......the bread was outstanding!

    For a Grocery Store this Dinning establishment is like a 4 star gourmet restaurant. The menu can be a little limited however there is always one or two from each column if you know what I mean. We have dined 3 or 4 times and continue to go back. Quite a nice place. So convenient service is very nice. Bar service is extensive. Just can’t beat it.

    Looking like a bistro style restaurant (next to the beer section of the grocery store) we were totally surprised by the service, food, and drink selections. We were dressed for grocery shopping, and felt somewhat awkward with our elegant table setting, attentive waitstaff, presentation of food - BUT that will not stop us from returning again and again. There are several entrees that we have to try and some desserts we have to have again! The best surprise was our total bill which was lower than one would expect for all of the aforementioned.

    We were in a large group and were disappointed in the quality of the food. The soup was delicious and so were the flavored fries, however the rest of the meal was lacking panache. The foods were over salted and not flavorful and dry. This could be made better if recipes were prefected. The service was great and the wait staff very, very friendly.

    Service was wonderful - our waiter was attentive & professional. The food was marked Fair. My daugher enjoyed the rigatoni dish. I had Salmon, didn't think all the flavors meshed well (overkill w/the artichokes & peas). As for my husband, he went with the special that evening - Ribeye 12oz for $24.00 - it was as flat as a pancake - 1/4 of an inch thick - - very disappointing when you consider the beautiful steaks you can purchase at your meat counter. Definitely not worth $24. We purchase your steaks all the time (our favorite are the filets). So disappointing to see that you do not use the same cuts of meat in your restaurant. Would make it so much better!! If i do return, i would probably stick to a salad or burger next time.

    My wife and I dined at The Pub this week and were not disappointed. Through all courses, we were continually surprised with the quality and freshness of the food, carefully prepared by the chefs in their open kitchen. Their selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks was quite good as well. We will definitely be returning. Our server was very cheerful, helpful and very attentive to our needs and really made us feel welcome and special - something you don't come to expect from a "pub." It's a funny thing to enjoy a DATE at a restaurant, but these guys definitely pulled it off. Well done!

    Har to beleive that you can begin or complete your grocery order while here, hit the pharmacy or find some craft beer accross the aisle - but this one is good. THe menu seems slightly limited, but unusuall.. its all good. We have eaten here a few times now and have always had a decent dinner and good service. Its angaging and a little "different" in the setting, bit otherwise enjoyable.

    My husband and I had high expectations for The Pub at Wegmans. Used to have "date nights" at the cafe in Wegmans, so we were excited about The Pub! When we arrived for dinner we were unsure. Our table was against cafe seating, which made us feel that people dining there weren't "good enough" to eat at The Pub. We could see and hear them and vice versa. It was a bit awkward. The menu is limited, so it took us a while to decide on what to eat (calamari, fish/chips, and mahimahi). Beer selection was also very limited. Our waitress told us we could go to the store beer back to the table, but we already ordered and didn't want to "work" for our meal.Food was decent,service was great,staff are friendly, but it just wasn't what we were expecting.

    We went to The Pub at the newly renovated Wegmans in Allentown, Pa. In the Collegeville The Pub always had a no tipping policy. The reason for this was because Wegmans paid their restaurant employees enough, that the customer did not need to tip. The menu is on the high side example lunch entrees are between $11.00 (only for 1 item) to $15.00. Both stores seemed to be priced the same. We were shocked when our bill came and on the bottom it said gratuity not included. Our lunch bill was $35.51 before the tip & we only drank Ice tea. This means Wegmans just gave themselves a 15 to 20% increase because they did not lower the prices from when tip was included. We will not be eating at The Pub anymore. They have out priced themselves.
