    Wegmans Pup is always a good consistent place to get a bite to eat in Allentown. This trip was a bit mixed with the Tuna Martini appetizer being outstanding but the special Prime Rib coming out cold. The staff at the pub is always accommodating and work through the busy time. Its a nice neighborhood location to grab a bit to eat but strangely enough in a supermarket :-).

    The food at this restaurant is consistantly excellent. Unfortunately, on prime rib night, they ran out of prime rib by 6:30 p.m. In order to make things right, the manager comped the meals for my wife and myself! It was certaintly appreciated, and next time, hopefully, the prime rib will last through the evening. Thank you Wegmans!

    Went there for dinner on a recent Saturday night. It was very lively and crowded and noisy. The food was good, not great. Service was friendly but there were a few mistakes and forgotten items.

    I was disappointed with Wegman's Pub. Nothing terrible, but just not great. I asked for my soup to be steaming hot, it was warm enough to eat. Fish taco's were soggy and dry, and my husband ordered the strip steak, medium rare...it was unevenly cooked medium on one end, medium well on the other and very tough. On the upside, my herbed fries were great! Our server Shea seemed to be involved in conversation with people he knew, not detail oriented.

    Leave it to Wegman's to create an in-house restaurant with an excellent menu and cocktails. The ambience is a little strange; you look out at people shopping for groceries, a sort of Scots movie. The staff tries hard, but it can get crowded and busy. It can also get very noisy.

    We love Wegmans, so going to eat here prior to shopping is a fun activity, but it is a Pub in a grocery store. The food is very good, we had a wrap, pizza and two items from the Oktoberfest menu. The food is high quality, not fancy but interesting. I don't love when there is live music and the tables are very close together so it feels very tight but we go here to get a nicer dinner than you can get from the deli area and it fills the bill perfectly. The beer selections are pretty good.

    I always love dining at the Pub. My favorite dish was the mussels. I have to say that i never have had a complaint prior to now. I was so disappointed that they changed the sauce the mussels was served. Our server even commented that they have received numerous complaints. I hope you change it back soon! Otherwise everything was great. I guess I just need to find a new menu favorite

    I expect top quality and fair prices at their supermarket and the Pub continues to meet those expectations. A creative, varied menu, well-prepared food, efficient/polite service, reasonable prices make for a pleasant lunch experience. Noise level was up there on a Friday noon lunch with the hardly anyone at the bar. I expect the noise level to be much higher in the evening when the bar is crowded.

    Kind of expected more of a market or seasonally based menu given the vast array of products in the store. Other than that, the Pub suggests a practical solution to the old axiom to never shop while hungry. Stop here first, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. The wine menu could use a little creative input.

    Very disappointing experience. we eat here often and this MUST have been an off night! Reservation was not honored on time, seats were filled with crumbs and whatever was wiped off the tables. Beer not cold, food not hot! Service friendly, but never came back to the table until we were done, which did not allow us to request heating our food.

    Though cooked to the heat I wanted the New York Strip was half fat. Embarrassing it was to have to spit on my plate all that fat with other diners to the left and right of me. Love the store though. Lots of variety. Not so much the restaurant.

    its Wegmans and the food is very good and now more reasonably priced . Although we had a very good meal and the service was very good it still is in a grocery store. The food tends to make up for this somewhat. We definitely will go again.

    Restaurant is inside the food store with a nice atmosphere considering. It was a bit noisy and the service was a bit slow. Happy hour buffalo wings and arugala salad were tasty. Lobster pot was reasonably priced and was good. It was lacking a bit of flavor, seemed bland. Beer and wine selection were pretty good as well. Will definitely go back.

    Even though I made a reservation for four people ahead of time, when we got there we were given a table that was suitable for 8 to 10 people. It was in that alcove that was very poorly lit and the lighting was very poor. It was difficult to have conversation and it was very difficult to read our menus. Service is not the greatest. Even though the waitress was very nice, it would've been nice if she came and checked in more than a couple times. This also happened the last time I ate there. It took forever to get drink refills, and when I asked for extra ketchup, it took forever to get there. I appreciate that they want to serve the ketchup in little metal bowls, but it would be great to just have a bottle on the table.

    we went for dinner and we ordered the appetizers (won tons and crab cakes) which were fantastic, my wife ordered hamburger and she said it was really good i had ordered the scallops with isreali cous cous and it was just ok, the scallops was over done and the cous cous was a little bland. My son ordered the tomato soup with bacon and that was ok as well as the fried calamari which was almost burnt and way over done. Also my other son had the mac and cheese which was bland and nothing special. The price for all the food plus one bottle of angre orchard was about 79 w/out tip. I do not believe it was to bad but you decide. Will go and try again. Good atmosphere.

    I love Wegmans, and have tried the Pub 5 times. It should simply be better. This time service was only ok and the fish and chips were ok. The worst part of this visit was the fries ,which normally rock, were cold and a bit soggy. I will keep trying because I love the idea of dinner than shopping on a Friday night. Love the curtains.

    Wife And I are long-time Wegmans supermarket customers. We went out of our way to dine at The Pub previously for lunch which was excellent. Second visit for dinner was a big disappointment. Salads and stuffed founder entree were good. But my strip steak entree was poor. Worst 12-oz strip steak I've ever had. Meat was tasteless and covered with a heavy gravy. Creme brulee was not up to Wegmans standards. Would not order this dessert again. At this point we would return for lunch, but not for dinner.

    Overall, it was a very pleasant experience-inside a grocery store but good food and great service!We started with a shared order of Calamari - lightly fried (almost too fried) but tasty side sauce.It was sitting on a bed of olives&peppers - eh..Husband ordered the smoked bacon burger and it was HUGE -mostly BREAD (roll was too big) but with taking off the top and using knife and fork,he said it was delicious. I opted for the crab cake appetizer (avoiding the big bread issue from above) which was 3 dollops of crab cake.It was not too much filler and a good deal of crab.I also had the tuscan fries which were regular fries with chunky garlic and herbs(on weeknights they have sweet potato fries which is what I wanted). They were tasty!!

We had the jamaican jerk hot wings for an appetizer and then we ordered our meals. We had the fish tacos, hamburger and my daughter had the mac and cheese. Everything came out great.
