I was a regular at this place for lunch with the old owners and the old decor. Went back years later and decor changed along with the owners. Food was so-so.

We were the only two except for someone who came to the bar half way through our meal. The waitress was pleasant and the service good.

The waitperson was very pleasant and attentive but the kitchen was very slow. We were the only ones in there, for crying out loud! I... More

I grew up in Allentown and frequented the Bull and Bear with my grandmother when I was younger (80's)and I'd always get the Prime rib, and it was out of this world. Well I left town for a while and came back in 2000 and haven't thought to eat there since recently. We went therefor lunch in July 2013 and... More
