About:

theMINT: envisioned in the past, resurrected by opportunity, executed by experience, enriched by community, growing through innovation

What We Do:

Gastropub refers to a bar and restaurant that serves high-end beer and food.[1]

The term gastropub, a portmanteau of gastronomy and pub, originated in England in the late 20th century. English pubs were drinking establishments and had little emphasis placed on the serving of food. Then that all changed. theMINT is an AMERICAN Gastropub that focuses on premium food and beer as well as premium spirits, cocktails, and martinis.

    Food was very good, had a nice assortment in food options and price range. Server was very nice and attentive. Had gluten free options for food but none in beer which would have been nice. Vibe was energetic which we liked as a family because we could enjoy ourselves as if we were at our dinner table at home. Really liked that they had a parking lot and street parking was not necessary. Would definitely visit again.

    This was our second time at TheMint. Both times the food has been exceptional...highly recommend getting the mac and cheese and definitely don't pass up dessert. We were sad to see that they took the Pattymelt off the menu but we're still impressed with the food. The Beer, wine and cocktail list has something for everyone. Just to be warned this is not the place to go for a romantic date night the space is cool and very modern as it was formally a bank but it is very loud...The service has been great both times we have gone our server was super nice, our orders were taken quickly and food came out in a timely manner

    The menu here is not large by any means nor is it plain. Many of the meals have subtle twists to the norm. The food was very good and I had a hard time choosing which unique item I was going to eat. Beverage selection is very extensive, plenty to choose from. My only minus for our visit was the noise level. It is small and loud and I often had a hard time hearing the other couple we were with. We did go on a busy Friday night.

    We've been several times - brought different friends with us - Sat. night there were 6 of us - sat at a table directly to the left when you come in - it was too dark to read the menu - we were using the flashlight on our phones - if there can't be adequate lighting at the table, at least have some candles or something. Other than that, we love it.

    Menu items that you are unlikely to find at other Bethlehem restaurants. You can have a full dinner or make a meal out of interesting small plates. I had the sausage platter -- sausage was handmade with three sauces and a foccacia with mushrooms. Really tasty. Two and a half pages of great beers. Some of the best food I had in the area for a while. Nice atmosphere. Not too crowded for an early Saturday night dinner.

    We were celebrating our son's 30th birthday along with him purchasing his first home with his fiancée. Overall, the experience was very nice. However, the portions are quite small. I had the Diver Scallops - only 3 scallops over a thin bed of mashed potatoes with brussel sprout sautee (only saw 2 actual brussel sprouts) and a light brown sauce - $23.00! Had a comparable dinner at Oceans in Easton and there were at least 4 or 5 scallops on the dish. Also, my future daughter-in-law ordered one of the salads...good thing she agreed to having chicken placed on top or it would have not been enough for dinner. I will go back, but would encourage the owners to compare quantity vs. price. Thank you.

    Food was excellent. This was the first time we were here and were very impressed. I ordered the diver scallops and my girl ordered the ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly. We also had dessert which was delicious as well. It is a a bit loud though, that is the only downside. It's not a place to have a quite meal, but it was definitely worth trying. We will be back for sure.

    The evening was enjoyed by myself and family members. However three had ordered the Lobster Mac and one Bacon/Chipotle Mac which we all love only it wasn't heated the way we have enjoyed it before, it was only warm. Every one enjoyed there meal and desert including myself. The flavor was good on my Brisket sandwich only the meat was a little dry. Some Au jus would have added another dimension and taken care of the dryness. We've been there before and will continue to dine there. Great beer list and distinctive menu. Thanks

    The food was of quality & intersting enough, however service was something to be desired. One of us ordered salad & 2 apps (hot & cold) instead of an entree; all of them were brought out at the same time. We had to remind 2 servers to bring out 1 of the salads 3 times before the burger; it came 10 minutes afterward. It took too long to get a 2nd beverage & we had to ask; no one paid enough attention to offer a refill. The decor was tacky & had a diner feel. Too many kids. Lighting was poor. Noise level too loud to enjoy conversation. Tables on top of each other; we experienced a very loud talker for the 2nd half of our meal and couldn't hear each other. Probably better for lunch with a goup. Not a good date night place; I'll pass.

    It helps that theMint is walking distance from my house, but that just means I can have more than one of their fantastic cocktails. Their draft list is always fun and full of variety and I've never had anything bad from their menu. It's one of my favorite restaurants in town which is really saying something considering the number of restaurants in the area.

    Recently my husband and I dined at The Mint. We'd been here multiple times before and always had great service and great food. This time was a game-changer for us. Many problems with our server. Crazy long wait times for drinks, service, food. Our server seemed to be elsewhere. My cocktail was wrong. Took ages till the server came back to us. Other tables who came in after us were already being served food/drinks well before we ordered. They had a different server who was very attentive. So many issues with this visit, we checked it off our list. There are so many great new restaurants in the valley. No need to put up with this kind of poor service. Sad to say the food wasn't even good.

    We had such a great night out here! We brought our Canadian friends who were in town, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the amazing beer selection and delicious grub. We will DEFinitely be back. The service was outstanding - very knowledgable about the beer, and quick to give us tastes of things when asked for. We had a lot of fun and all the food was ace. Can't wait to go back! Our only critique would be the atmosphere - in part it's an awesome looking place, but the television were distracting and disturbing to what could otherwise be a perfect ambience. The "sports bar" feel at the bar was out of place, and I'd seriously consider removing them to give the place more of the hip-beer-gastropub vibe! :)

    Neat concept for a restaurant, just needs some polishing to make it a real gem. Outside dining was nice, but please trim down the weeds at your entrance. It sets the tone for what the dining experience will be like. Menu was varied and nice but not clear. The restaurant offers a different take on "comfort foods" which is fine BUT, the customer should not be surprised/disappointed when their food comes out. If food is extremely spicy please label it as a spicy entree. My entree had so much hot sauce on it that I could not eat it. It completely destroyed the dish that otherwise would have been great. The Fish and Chips was fantastic. The scallops were very nice also, just a little salty. Our waiter was great.

The beer and cocktail lists are extensive, and it will take you many visits to find your fav. My new summer drink, the gin smasher.
