Everything was delicious, outdoor patio was very comfortable and they did a great job of Coronavirus safety. Crab cake sandwich and wings were very good. Also highly recommend the Old bay krinkle cut french fries with white american cheese were amazing.

The atmosphere and menu you'd expect at a sports bar. We went on a Saturday night around 6:30pm, and service was a little slow. We started with drinks and apps. Waitress seemed a little impatient for us to order our food and keep us moving. We weren't there for more than 1hr30mins total-- there were 5 adults, all who got apps, drinks, and dinner. Not quite sure why she was rushing us. Wings are great though. A little on the expensive size, but they are very big wings.

Was out with some friends after golfing and stopped by for some drinks. Sat at the bar, great selection of IPA's. Several of us were hungry, so we put in for some buffalo wings. Our bartender recommended to order extra cooked if we like them real crispy. They came out great, just the way I like them. Best wings in the area, my opinion. Thanks for the recommendation Kristen!! You were Spot on.

The food was not good at all. We ordered several appetizers, the ones that were available (several were not but we didn’t find out until the waitress came back to tell us) and the quesadillas were the only decent thing that we had. Most ordered burgers which had no taste and we only about 1/2 of it because the beef had no taste. Out of the 7 or 8 kids items they only had 3 and we found that out after the waitress came back 3 times to get another option. We ate inside and they properly spaced the tables.

I ate here on May 7th, 2021. We decided to eat here because the resturant is right next door to our hotel. There was about a 20 minute wait. Let me start by saying it was very cold in the resturant. The temperature outside was around 60. When I asked the staff why it was so cold inside they said the heater was broken. we decided to eat there anyway. The food was good. It would have been better if it wasn't so cold. I didn't mind but my girlfriend did. Our server ( sorry I forgot her name) was so nice and sweet!!!! The beers were nice and cold. Overall I will definetly go back but I will wait until the weather is warmer!

Upon entering the restaurant was lively and busy. I could not tell from the host station if there were any seats at the long bar, but the host stood up and mentioned that there was one seat left which I took. I, of course, had a Yuengling with their Salmon side of jasmine rice and broccoli. It was very tasty, and the bartenders were very attentive. Yes, I had more than one beer. Lou

My wife and I went there for lunch on the Sunday of the Superbowl. We ordered nachos as an appetizer and a sandwich each. Well the app and sandwiches came out together. When we mentioned it to the waitress she blew us off. I had a second beer. The waitress asked my wife if she wanted a second beer. My wife said no to the second beer. To our astonishment the waitress took away my wife's beer which still had about 1/4 left. We asked to see a Manager. The Manager comped the bill very fairly to make up for the poor service. Unfortunately both my wife and I had to make an express trip to the bathroom half an hour later. That can't be made up for.

We stopped here for lunch in between baseball games. Staff was pleasant, welcoming and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. Guests were social distancing and required to wear masks while moving about the restaurant and in the rest rooms. Food came out quickly and exactly as we had ordered. It was so good, we decided to come back later in the evening for dinner. This time, we sat outside at the picnic tables. This was a bit more hectic - larger party in the back 4 picnic tables - not social distancing or wearing masks. Our table was a bit away, so we were ok. We all got different meals from earlier in the day and the food did not disappoint. Ainsley and Kenya our servers, were prompt, attentive and courteous! Highly recommend

While in the area for work, we decided to try PJ Whelihan's for dinner. Katherine provided great service. We noticed that we could see the game from basically any seat at any table. I tried the wicked chicken sandwich and it was delicious.

I'm not usually one for chain restaurants, but his place was quite good. I had lunch here with friends. The atmosphere is basic sports bar, same old same old. I found all the tv's to be annoying, but if you were here to watch a specific event it would be good. Our waitress was very attentive. I had an asian salad for lunch. It was huge and so good! Prices were fairly reasonable. (Everything is expensive these days......) All in all a good lunch place.

Check your table for insects before you order. Staff was cordial but inexperienced, Food was good but portions tiny for the price. We will not be returning. Atmosphere was TV overload.

We were visiting a friend in Bethlehem and decided to stop here for lunch on our way to her.......have ALWAYS had great dining experiences at our other local PJ Whelihan's locations and this one continued the same trend. Gabrielle was our server..........VERY welcoming and made our lunch so enjoyable that we know that we need to return for another meal. We both ordered their cheeseburgers.........medium-rare.....and that is exactly what we received. I decided to try their Sweet Potato Fries ........wonderful! I LOVED the sour cream/horseradish sauce came with that side dish. My spouse ordered Onion Rings and he devoured every one of them. We will return.......we appreciated that, on a late Monday morning, the restaurant was quiet and not filled with many patrons.
