I went to Gabriel's Gate the night of the Taste of Country to avoid the traffic and busy atmosphere of other downtown bars, and I'm glad the adventure brought me here. Our group of 8 stopped in for a later dinner and were seated right away. The atmosphere outside was bustling: the Allentown Art Festival was gearing up for the weekend festivities, so there were vendors setting up tents on both sides of the street. Gabriel's Gate was nicely tucked away from the noise. The decor was unique and interesting around every corner. There was something for everyone to look at with a nice mix of eclectic, old, retro, and new. The menu wasn't overwhelmingly large, but there really was something for everyone in our party. I had the BBQ chicken fingers (which I thought would be a smaller appetizer, but they were served with fries and there was more than enough to share); they were delicious. Between us at the table, we had a sandwich, salad, soup, chili, and wings and everyone seemed to be satisfied with the quality of food and the portion size. Even when we left around 930pm, it wasn't terribly busy for a Friday night. Low-key and relaxing: the perfect way to spend a Friday evening in late spring.
