We selected this location because we saw it on TripAdvisor when searching for a restaurant near the Sands. When you pull up, the restaurant looks very inviting. When you go inside, the decor is a little aged. So I wasn't sure what to expect.
The waiter was right on point and took our drink orders. He explained the specials and even gave a few recommendations. When he came back to take our orders, he was friendly but I was slightly taken aback at his somewhat lecturing tone when I inquired about how they prepared their meats. As anyone will tell you, medium means 5 different things at 5 different restaurants and I wanted to gauge my order accordingly. I simply inquired as to the level of pink in a medium preparation, at this establishment, for a prime rib. Not to be told how prime rib is different than steak, and the preparation is different, etc. That being said, I move on.
I started with the Shrimp Cocktail. It was fabulous, although 12 dollars for 5 extra large shrimp was on the high side. I then had the 14 oz Prime Rib ($27) and it was cooked a little more to the raw side of medium than I would have preferred. The mashed sweet potatoes were quite good as was the asparagus.
Wife went with the Stuffed Shrimp ($21) with Rice Pilaf and vegetable medley. The shrimp were quite generously stuffed with crabmeat and the wife said her meal was very good.
Mom had the crab cakes ($27) along with the mashed sweet potatoes and salad bar. She said the crab cakes were very good. She was not impressed with the salad bar as it was limited to salad and fixings. She would have like some slaw or fruit options. Seniors love their salad bars :-)
Overall the meal was very good, and with the exception of the shrimp cocktail, reasonably priced. The inside could use a little sprucing up as it is kind of dark, compartmentalized and tired. But if you want a good meal at a decent price, it is a very good option.
We would go here again if in Bethlehem as an alternative to the grossly over-priced and undersized options at the Sands Casino. Its only 10 easy minutes away.
