We ate dinner here today after a day of ski racing at Blue Mountain. We had a large group of 6 families, we had the two tables near the fireplace in the back. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere and the service were all amazing!...We will definitely return!More

Super great place! It’s the best kept secret in the area. If you’ve never been here make sure you make a reservation because it’s not a huge place and the place fills up fast!!! The service and food are consistently awesome. The margaritas, sangria and...other cocktails are on point! They're super creative with new drinks! We have been to Sunday brunch (only in the summer), lunch and dinner. We have dined as a couple, with family, and with friends…it’s a great place regardless of your company! We’ve sat at the inside bar, outside bar (which is enclosed during winter) and tables in both areas, all have awesome service! The pizza is great, do yourself a favor at least once and sit at the back bar and watch the process at the pizza over, it’s fun and interesting! California chicken cheesesteak a fav of mine as well as the wings, there are other items I love, just too many to list. We go regularly, 2-4 times a month and they are consistent with their great service, food and drinks.More

Great bartender Sarah. Food was great. However… the lighting in back bar was completely bright like a bingo hall. 0.0 ambiance. Hope the owner reads this. Will be back with sunglasses unless they dim lighting.

Yes the lights were turned on high in the morning when I was doing maintenance, when I was done I forgot to turn them down ( dimmer switch, easy adjustment) Glad to hear you enjoyed everything else because the lighting is a very easy fix.

We loved the back patio where the brick oven pizza was located. The place was packed. we did get seated in a tiny little corner and our wait was long but everything else was very nice. Our waitress was pleasant and very friendly. The food...was tasty. The lobster bisque was My husband’s favorite. It was too spicy for me which was a bummer because it had plenty of lobster and I love lobster bisque . the crab sliders were delightful and the French fries hot and crisp. The pizza was flavorful but just on the warm side. We figured it was busy and might have been setting out too long. We enjoyed the flavor anyway. We will definitely be back to try another specialty pizza🍕More

It feels like reading a book when I asked for both- DRINKS and FOOD menu, I cannot believe there is so many of them! This would require a few trips to the restaurant if you would like to try each one of them! The food...were so delicious and the drinks were off the chart. I would recommend to call in advance to nab a reservation because the waiting list is a bit longer!More

Food was good, amazing drinks but overheard server telling her friends at a table over that the owners tip themselves out and treat them badly. After reading other reviews where owner does not seem very kind I’m not sure I want to supprt this business...which is such a shame because everything we ate was great!More

We stopped here on our way to a local resort for the long weekend. This place is great. So many beverages to choose from - it's pretty awesome. Beers, specialty sangrias and growler fills to go. The food was above what you would find at...most bars - but considering all there specialty drinks - I wasn't to surprised. We will definitely stop back the next time we're in town. We would have stopped after our long weekend but they were closed for vacation. Recommend for sureMore

Been to place once before. Enjoyed thoroughly. After today never again ! Made reservations for family of 5 for 3:15 PM. Get there. They can't locate our reservations even though we received a confirmation text. They "found" us a table. Seated and ordered. Starters and...meals. So far so good. Starters came out,within minutes our meals. Way too fast. One exception ,my wife's pizza did not. EVeryone eating. Wife's pizza still a no show. Asked server about. Sorry !!! Not even a time it would. A couple who came in about 30 minutes after us received a pizza. Server rudely said it was their appetizer. My wife finally received her pizza, same server comes and asks " well do you still want it ? ". More rudeness. To make matters all the better, they add a 20% tip for 5 or more guests. I didn't see it posted on their menu. Sadly I couldn t adjust the already charged tip. And never once asked for another round of drinks. Poor and rude service. My wife pizza was horrible too. Never again.More

You were sat within 2 mins of walking in due to the fact the people right in front of you said they’re name was the same as yours. The menu clearly states a pizza MAY come out at a different time then the other items...More

Great find for the craft beer enthusiasts or the foodies. A nice small local establishment with something for everyone. Everything is above average that we had and it was a fun little place. And very reasonably priced for the area.

We went for dinner on a recommendation from our innkeeper. It was a busy Saturday night. We had no reservation. We were told it could be an hour wait. We decided to wait. It ended up being about 40 minutes. Talked with the owner while...we waited. He was very friendly. Our waitress was sweet and funny. The atmosphere was very very relaxing. The menu was diverse. The cocktails were amazing. Had to try a sangria flight. It was delicious. We got Apps, soup,salad and entrees. It was all terrific. The prices are very reasonable. Would highly recommend and would definitely return.More

We had reservations on the patio. With COVID 19 we were told our table was reserved for 1 1/2 hours. They had an emergency happen that left them short staffed! The waitress got our drink order and then 35 minutes later came to take our...food order. We just called her over and stated the table she just took an order for a table that came in after us. So she finally takes our order. While we were sitting and talking. The owner came over and reprimanded us stated he does tolerate any nonsense or something like that. So rude my jaw must have been on the floor. We were not rude to the waitress. If I could have left no stars I would have. SO RUDE!!!! It was the first time we were out to dinner since March. The rude owner had to ruin a pleasant evening. It was the first and last time I will ever go there!!! It is a shame! I should have told him the heck off and left and ate at McDonald’s. At least they are friendly!!!More

Yelling at an employee is not tolerated for any reason. It’s very sad that you believe it was ok to act like you and put me in a position that I would have to ask you to mind your manners.

Had lunch on a Sunday at 1:00 pm and was not overly crowded but consistently comers and goers. The wings are really good. I had the mango habenero sauce and it was good. We also had the loaded fries and they did not disappoint. I...will be back.More

We were shopping at the antique store in Slatington and asked where to go for lunch. They nrecommended Joey Bs. From the outside it looks like a local bar, but don't be deceived. The main entrance opens into the bar---but hang in there...The staff was...very welcoming. We were there on Sunday about 1 and the place was packed. We elected to sit at the bar since the stools were high backed and comfortable. The bartender gave us excellent service. Apparently there is a dining room in the back that was filled...They have a build your own burger which also includes, chicken or a veggie burger option. I had one with bleu cheese, mushrooms and onions served on a very freshly baked roll....actually the whole thing was so big, I never did eat the roll...served with a side of either boardwalk fries or sweet potato fries. I tried both and would recommend the board walk fries....they are seasoned and quite tasty. The sweet potato fries were kind of soggy and waffle cut. My husband had the beef vegetable soup and loved it. Also he had the cheesesteak on a fresh roll and he said it was the best he ever had. We will look for a reason to be back at Joey B's soon! They also had lots of interesting drinks...including a wide variety of different sangrias. Only reason I did not give it a 5 star is the "local Bar " look....if it had not been recommended so highly we would not normally have stopped.More
