We were given a gift and always want to try their food. Well I decided to try their Prime Rib which is usually a good indicator of the food quality. I'm not fussy but I simply couldn't muscle my way through with this tough cut either that or the steak knife was dull. The restauant business is too competitive to... More

I like to sit at the bar and eat. Scott at the bar is a great bartender. The menu needs to be updated but what is on the menu is good food. When you go there a lot, sometimes tired of the items. But nice place to go for lunch or dinner.

We got here around 5:15 on a Saturday night. There were about 5 people sitting at the bar and about 2 tables full of people. The owner had an attitude about our not having a reservation but agreed to seat us. We thought maybe the place gets really full and he was doing us a favor. WRONG! when we left... More

I seldom write a second review on a restaurant unless there is a change. We went back there on a Tuesday with a group of friends. We had considered this our favorite new restaurant. We were surprised that we were the only ones in the dining room. There were a couple of people at the bar. My husband ordered the... More

201 is our favorite local "date night" spot. From the moment you walk in the door you feel as if you're the center of attention. The service is professional and friendly. (Ask for Wendy or Jody!) The bar staff make the best martinis in Berks County! They're always served with a smile. The bacon wrapped scallops are fabulous. The dipping... More

The food and service at 201 West is exceptional. Be sure to make reservations on the weekend. The lump crab sautee is out of this world as is the stickie bun-like dessert

201 West has been there for about 15 years or so. They have always been a decent place. About 3 years ago, they acquired a chef from Galen Hall and with him came some great menu items. Some of my favorites are: App, the crab stuffed artichokes The crab meat sauté and the filet stuffed with crab. The atmosphere is... More
