We dined outdoors for lunch and the hotel provided heaters which kept us warm. The food was delicious and the service was prompt and attentive. One of our favorite places to stay and dine.

Service was fabulous. Food was delicious and ambience was superb. When we arrived they did not have our reservation at all In their system. I showed them my confirmation email from the night before. Luckily they had an open table. If not, it would not have been good.

The sausage at breakfast had a hard skin to it. The coffee was way too strong. However, the atmosphere and location was excellent, as was the service.

When visiting my son, who attends a local college, we always love visiting the historic hotel Bethlehem. The food was very good and the staff was friendly and attentive. The food arrived slowly, but we were patient not knowing how the hotel was impacted by the current economic status with the COVID pandemic.

Initially at check in we were told they offered a complimentary breakfast and the lady at the desk even told us to make reservations to ensure we got a table, which we did. Then come to find out when we were ordering breakfast that they don't offer complimentary breakfast even though your paying $200+/night for your room. Then from the start we didn't have what we needed. Server didn't bring out the basics for breakfast, had to get up and ask for things 3 different times because no one was paying attention to the tables; didn't bring water, didn't have sugar for coffee, didn't bring jelly for toast. They got my omelet wrong also. I understand not keeping condiments and things on the table but at least bring them with the food when it arrives. I was never even offered a refill for my coffee! There were so many people around doing things but none were actually checking on tables. I'm not the pushy kind, but I had to get up to ask for things.

Hotel Bethlehem's Tap Room is a great place for dinner. The menu is limited, but the food was delicious. The walls are covered with pictures of famous people, and the history of the taproom is evident everywhere you look. The staff was very helpful, not in-your-face. It was an expensive meal for me and my two older children, but I suppose that is to be expected when you dine in a hotel restaurant. I would like to see a tap list with more local beers.

Our waitress was lovely, helpful and gracious about making up separate checks for us. We had an outdoor table with a great view of downtown. You feel like you're right in the middle of the weekend bustle, but nothing overbearing or excessively loud. Our drinks came right away. My friends had mixed drinks and I had a nice, dry red wine. Lunch was excellent. I had the BBQ chicken that came with homemade coleslaw, potato salad and a fresh ear of corn. My friends got soup, a lobster roll and lamb chops and we all cleaned our plates. We were too full for dessert, unfortunately but truly enjoyed our meals.

Club soda is not tonic water. Not enough waiters for the inside dining area. Appetizers were good. Overdid it with the Covid distancing inside. Better service was visible outside with more waiters.

We were so happy to be able to dine in the beautiful tap room after so many months. There were very few tables and the service was excellent. Our food was very good and drinks, except for one exception, a gin-and-tonic that was not up to their standard. OK, because everyone is working to return to their established standards. Overall, an enjoyable lunch. This I a favorite place that we will always return to.

This restaurant has added a mandatory 20% gratuity for the wait staff. Up from 18% just from June. There is absolutely no incentive for the servers to do their job. We have eaten there for years and never in all those years has service been so horrible as it is now. We’ve had 4 different servers in the past 4 months and service is just bad. They don’t refill waters, coffee or ask if we’d like another cocktail. We have eaten breakfast lunch and dinner. And there is no difference. We are thoroughly shocked at the management here. They are allowing the experiences of customers to fall drastically.

In town for wedding and decided to eat at the Tap Room to stay close to room bc if time constraints. Outstanding food, service was good. I did however feel like I was eating in the lobby of the hotel since I was 20 feet from the door. Would be a better ambience if there was a wall between lobby and the restaurant. Overall I would recommend for lunch.
