First time at this restaurant. Nice outside venue and beer selection is good. It ends there. The onion soup was okay, but certainly nothing to write home about. The Reuben sandwich as not only greasy, but the first time I have ever had tough and...More

Meal was a sandwich so i cant say it was awesome. I liked that you could smoke inside - its a cigar bar so don't go if you don't like to be around smoke. Good drinks. Loved the building though - old train station.

Not impressed with the food at all for the price, especially with so many fine Lehigh Valley establishments out there in a similar price range. Outside atmosphere is a nice touch, but children are not welcome at all. . . and the staff has no...More
