The lack of variety in the menu, the quality of the food, all were lacking from our expectations of a Historic location like the HB. Waitstaff was professional, kind, and energetic. That was impressive. Of course the ambiance was very nice. I would have to think about giving a recommendation. I think I would want to have a better experience myself beforehand, but I am reluctant to put our another $100.00 plus for two for a chicken salad sandwich, a cup of onion soup, a beet salad, a glass of wine and a mixed drink, especially given the quality of the food (the onion soup and beet salad were good), but all else poor.

We had previously had a good experience at the Terrace, so we were proud to bring good friends from out of town to the HB Tap room. So embarrassed to have them experience such a poor program. We love Bethlehem, love the HB, but don't know how to get the trust back. Sad.

Excellent brunch experience! Unless you want a specialty coffee or alcoholic beverage, it's truly all inclusive with a wide variety of food choices for every palate (and age -- loved the "kids corner"). Highly recommend for a high end brunch experience.

Food for lunch was great! Unfortunately, we were hoping for brunch, as this place comes up when you search “brunch” in open table. However, when we got there, we were informed there is no brunch menu, and they only do breakfast on Sundays. That was a bit of a let down, as we had hoped for a ladies brunch date. In any event, our waitress was fabulous! Attentive and polite. She even brought me a glass of champagne to celebrate my birthday! And the food we did order was delicious! The price of everything definitely reflects the “high end” feel, as dishes were a little elevated when compared to other restaurants in the area. But all in all, it was a pleasant experience

This was the 2nd time we came for brunch and had an absolutely wonderful meal. Everything we had was delicious and top notch.
The dining area is always nicely decorated and the staff very attentive. We have recommended it to all of our friends.
And by the way, we travel 2 hours to get there !!

I've been to their brunch many times and I'm never disappointed. The food is always amazing and they switch it up often so it's not always the same spread. It's pricey so not somewhere I'm going to every week but I definitely make sure to get here every few months.

We’re greeted and seated amicably and promptly, nice warm seat by the window , and served by Robyn who a delight and very professional— sure gives you a nice ‘welcome back’

Shrimp cocktail and filet excellent , duck pate and duck breast good, dessert unusual and scrumptious.

I have dined at the Hotel B for 25+ years. Over the years, food was good & not so good. Recently, I have not been impressed by the food quality . I love the quiet ambiance & our waiter Jason was very good, but the food was as seriously lacking.

We visited during the 2020 Winter Restaurant Week, enticed by the online menu. The appetizers that we chose, roasted cauliflower soup, mussels with bacon balsamic reduction, were outstanding. The smoked turkey sandwich would have been much better with carved roasted turkey breast instead of lunch meat. The chicken palliard with butternut squash ravioli was very good. Overall, enjoyable.

Unfortunately, it was just ok. Service was very very slow. I get I don’t want fast food fast, but this was a bit to slow. 2 of our orders had fries on and and after waiting 45 min they were cold. Server just said he was sorry and nothing else. 10 min later new fries. That was great but should of told us that he would get a new order, instead of leaving us sitting there dumbfounded by his response. I like the atmosphere but really no need to come back.
