Food it very good and very reasonably priced. Decor could use an update. Salad bar is perfect. Love the dressings. You need to make a reservation because it's not a huge place and is busy because it's so good.

Can't speak to parking but we were not thrilled by the food. Hard core local following but not for us. A friend whose opinion I hold in high regard prefers Youell's Oyster House on W. Walnut Street in Allentown. We've not... More

Will need to find a parking spot on the street. Best place is one block west of the restaurant off of 20th street. Parking can provide a minor challenge.
