Four visits for lunch over a three month period prompted this review. What I wanted: a wide selection of draft beers, check. Tasty personal size pizza, thin crust, check. Excellent cup of soup, very low in salt, check. Outstanding hand cut fries, again low in salt, check. Acceptable pub style cheeseburger, check. Worth the trip chicken cheesesteak, check. Large selection... More

Went while visiting family over the holidays. We both enjoyed the wings and pizza. Have been there several times over the years.

We went out to celebrate a friend taking a new job. Our waitress was quite possibly the worst person I've ever met in the service industry. She was absolutely horrible in taking orders and had no skills that deserve a job in this capacity. We were told initially you couldn't make reservations, but she said we would have to move... More

If you want some good casual food, and enjoy watching a game. The Paddock is the place to go. We arrived on a Saturday night around 5, they sat us at a High top near the bar. Great view of the TVs. We ordered pizzas and they are the bar type pizzas. They were delicious. The service was great as... More

Gathered for friends' retirement party. 27 of us crammed into a long table. As more folks came, there was nowhere to sit - they sat elsewhere in the bar - far from friends. Waitress scolded me "You can't stand here - we have to work!" as I (unknowingly) stood in front of their computer. We were ready to order more... More

We went to the Paddock on the suggestion of the 2 retirees to celebrate with them. Unfortunately the service was very poor, at the management's direction, we were ignored and basically shoved out the door. After one round of drinks and 2 plates of appetizers (for 25 people) they cleared the tables and stopped taking orders (food or drink). Will... More

I was getting pizza at the Paddock when I was in high school, a very long time ago. I recently moved back to Allentown after an absence of over half a century, and I was happy to learn that my old favorite hangout was still there. I don't know the story, but the place has another name -- Hops in... More

I ordered the Hops hungry man sampler which came out burned! It was so over fried that the mozzarella moons had no mozzarella in them! My spouse ordered the 8" pizza with bacon & onion. There was very little cheese and the center was very under cooked! The waitress never checked on us. Never again!

Two friends and I visited the Paddock tonight. We were seated in very reasonable time, considering how very busy the place was on a Thursday nite. We had GREAT service and my chicken parm was very nice. The chicken was great and I ate all of it. No room for dessert. The makeover of the inside and outside is quite... More

I really like the food & always have but the staff &/or kitchen cannot keep up when it's busy. We had a table of 5 & we were served our meals at 3 different times. The last item was a Stromboli & we had it wrapped to go since we had waited and hour & a half for it &... More
