Tavern at the Sun Inn
Taverns were a center of daily life in colonial times. They were the local, social and political hubs that spawned the thinking that led to the American Revolution. Tavern at the Sun Inn continues in this tradition offering a Colonial-inspired Seasonal food and beverage menu in a truly unique gathering spot.
Tavern’s culinary team is led by Billy Gruenewald. He offers a casual tavern-style menu that changes to match what is seasonally available and features some ingredients that would have been available to Bethlehem’s founders. Dinner is served on the Sun Inn’s second floor and light fare and drinks outdoors on the beautiful North Green when the weather permits.

Seated immediately after arriving 15 minutes early. Our server was at our table immediately and we did not wait for anything the entire evening.
The experience was excellent as this is a historic inn frequented by Washington, Franklin and others when passing though this area. The old time charm is still there.
It was a great experience. friendly and helpful staff.
The food was good and the Service was Excellent.
A beautiful setting with amazing food and excellent service.
Scottie was amazing! Food was incredible and the drinks was delicious
Food is always great. I had the duck which was juicy without being greasy and the sweet potatoes on the side were very tasty. The service is excellent. Prompt and efficient. COVID standards were being adhered to. I just love this place.
If you are looking for a more upscale restaurant with a unique menu dining experience you want to give the Sun Inn a try. You do not have to be dressed to the nines so please do not let the word upscale scare you. Even their mixed drinks have a twist to them, but they also have a large wine and beer list. The building itself has such character and historic value that it adds to the experience.
Historic, atmospheric, excellent service and menu!
Fantastic dinner! Great for date night. Definitely will return soon.
The food at Sun Inn was excellent. Service was good too. The atmosphere was disappointing in that this is a very historic restaurant, yet they were playing normal rock music on their system and at a level higher than should be for dining. I love rock, however, it totally ruined the ambiance of a 1700s historic inn. Overall, a nice place though.
Had a wonderful night. Food was amazing and Scottie was a amazing!
Always a great place for a relaxing and delicious dinner.
Service was excellent! I will be dining here again
Disappointed with the food my side was described as spicy pretzels it was literally Snyder’s pretzels in a bowl. Zero value I’m thinking with the extremely limited menu they must have a kitchen issue -won’t be back sadly
Always a great meal.
Delicious food! Unique setting.
Love it there!
Wonderful night at Tavern @ The Sun Inn! Scotty, our server, was fantastic. He made great suggestions & the food did not disappoint! We can't wait to go back!
Took advantage of eating outside and enjoying the music. Fantastic service from Scotty! Efficient outdoor dining operation.
Wonderful feel .... great outdoor environment. Staff amazing ... from greeting to serving. Highest quality at very reasonable prices. Wine very good for great prices. And I am a former winemaker and wine lover.
If you want to dine outside without the passersby crowd, try this location.
They only serve pre-batched liquor drinks on the patios with a very modified dinner menu I was not impressed....
Outdoor seating is in the adjoining courtyard. The weather was perfect when we were there. Nice casual menu choices. Very accommodating waitstaff.
Had to wait outside, some people left the line to go elsewhere. Menu was tiny, had to ask for silverware, had to ask for a napkin, and the prices were high
We were only allowed to sit outside which was disappointing because we had come for the history of the place. There were so many arbitrary rules by the Pennsylvania Governor that were strictly enforced that it did not make for a relaxing evening. The lobster roll was very good.
food was okay - had lobster roll - drinks were all ice - server was anxious to leave -
Tavern has done a great job accommodating for the Pandemic. We have always enjoyed our dinners at the Tavern before and during Covid-19
Wonderful experience. Lovely courtyard to dine in . Tables were placed perfectly
Amazing as always!
Great place to eat in Bethlehem. Fine outdoor seating with shade. Enjoyable
We went during the Corona restrictions, so obviously it was not crowded. The staff did a great job caring for us despite the masks and the need to be aware of distancing, etc. The menu is not expansive, but there was still plenty of good choices. Everything we ordered was fresh and tasty. We were not rushed but were still served in a timely and friendly manner. We sat outside on the patio, which is right on Main St., yet it was quiet and very relaxing.
Great outdoor experience. For and service excellent.
Great atmosphere, good service, food not very good, not at the standards of other restaurants in the area. Price was good.
Very special to done I such a historic location.
Valentine’s Day dinner
Great experience. Shrimp cocktail Appetizer was a bit light but the main course was delicious.
I was a little worried after I made the reservations because I was not sure what to expect. Well that was silly. The place is historical and you get that feel throughout. The service was as good as it gets. We eat out a lot and this was top 3 service. Our waitress could not have done better. The food was delicious. I highly recommend a visit here. We had the Schnitzel, The Filet, The Goundie soup among other things. All very good with good portion size and we left stuffed.
Valentines dinner. Prefix prices were incredibly fair. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm and traditional
