A friend and I went for lunch while in town for a hockey game last weekend. The atmosphere was pretty cool - hardwood floors, high pressed tin ceilings and many taxadermied animals adorning the walls. We ordered wings (hot) and they were pretty good. We also, however, ordered salads. Picture a browning head of iceberg lettuce town into hand sized... More

We dined here with another couple on a Saturday evening before a Kleinhans performance. We arrived at 5 pm and were promptly seated. Fifteen minutes later there was a waiting line. They have a large bar and the eclectic interior is interesting. Service and food were very good. Try not to sit close to the front door during the winter.

Went to the Anchor Bar the night before, blahhhhh. This place has awesome wings and I was able to watch the Kentucky game on their brand-new big TV. Great service, nice clientele, highly recommend.

I took one star off because they need more servers. Otherwise, a great experience. It is perfect for private, romantic dining; it is quiet and private...great for romantic evenings. The church like furniture and old wood give it an elegant feel, all the better to enjoy your meal, whether this is fine dining or traditional American fare. Staff are not... More

Good selection and the food was warm and prompt. If you plan on going on a Saturday night, make sure you make reservations. We had to wait about 45 minutes to be seated, but the wait was worth it.

For a local, Gabriel's Gate is the place to get wings and have a beer. Located in Allentown, it's been a local favorite for decades and has a great interior. It's one of my favorite restaurants in town and I have been having wings here for years. Great for a later dinner or for brunch. They have a nice beer... More

This is a great casual Allentown watering hole. The food is definitely pub grub but tasty and appropriate. The ambiance is pleasant and upscale when you compare it to "the Pink" or the "Brick bar" down the street.

On a busy Saturday night plan on a 45 minute wait for your order to come to your table. Come with friends to have good conversation while waiting. Gabriel's Gate dates back to 1969 and has the well deserved honor of being known as an Allentown established eatery in Buffalo,NY. The portions are large, the food is good, the prices... More
