Our service was terrible. We waited forever for drinks. Then our server brought us small glasses of soda. We had to ask for a refill and she came back ten minutes later with them.

Food was just so-so. Place was empty but service was kind of slow. Never asked me if I wanted a second beer…which is odd for a brew pub.

We had the Iron Pig pizza and it was delicious! Also the cauliflower poppers, which needed seasoning. Rather drab even with the aoli dip. Beer was very good. Our server Jake was very pleasant and attentive.

I never leave reviews much less negative ones but wow.. The quality of food for the price and limited selection was not worth it at all. We barely saw our server and the place wasn't that busy. My burger was decent but the side dish of fries was just cold and clearly had been sitting for a while. The wings were tough and flavorless. Welcome is not a word id use to describe our service . We tipped well because we understand working in service but we definitely won't be back.

Every time I go to Bru Daddy's there's great service, food, and drinks. The ambiance is fun and casual, and everything is maintained very well. Definitely the best pizza in Allentown - the crust and other ingredients are always outstanding.

The food was okayish, and the server was great.

But that being said, we made a reservation and it gave us the option of specificity. When we got there, they wanted to seat us someplace else, and when I said something their attitude was pretty much, "Too bad for you." What the F did I make a reservation for?

This was our first time visiting and I can tell you it won’t be our last! The service, food, and beers were great!! We had a delicious pizzas, brussels sprouts, and chicken wings. The weather wasn’t good, so we weren’t able to enjoy the outdoor dining, but the space looks great.

We had an excellent meal at Bru Daddy's over Memorial Day weekend. Our server, Karo, was so helpful, friendly and professional. We had the pretzel, the Brussels Sprouts, a wrap and a panini (both chicken) and our son had the salad with shrimp. Everything was very good. All of the food tasted fresh. Great atmosphere - as usual!

We made reservations atleast 5 days in advance for a high top table. When we got there it was fairly empty but we were told they didn’t have a table for us even with a reservation (said they get more bookings than they have tables) so our options were to leave or sit at the bar.
We opted to sit at the bar only because choices are limited in Allentown without a reservation or waiting and it was pouring. Food was good. Beers were good. Service at the bar was good. However the way the night was handled was poor and left a sour taste in my mouth. Not sure we’ll try again

Second time here, great food and beer choices. Service was slightly slow due to a soft opening of their sister restaurant and lacking of staff this time. First time there they had a band which was fun and great. Definitely will be back.

This was not our first time here, but it was only the second time we were in the outdoor beer garden. It is a great atmosphere. And last night there was awesome music. The beer is always great. The apps and pizza we got were solid as always. We are excited for their new venue to open as well. Can’t wait to support the new Blended business as well.

Went for dinner before a Phantoms game. Was busy and took awhile to check in even though we had a reservation. Once seated waitress came right away and got our order. Took forever for the food to finally come. My food came out first then my boyfriends 5 mins later. Asked for waters to drink and that took awhile to get as well. Food tasted good, service wasn’t the greatest. Not really sure I’ll go back.

Beer was great, they were just out of a few which happens. Food was on point. The only downfall was the two of use were seated at a small round table and there was not much room for our flights plus our appetizers and the food came out quick so we kind of had to rush. Other than that I’d give them another shot.

Very accommodative with letting us sit outside but then move inside because it was a bit chilly. Great atmosphere and even let us hang out a bit after usual closing time. I always come here and have a good experience!

First off I wanna start by saying that this place is gorgeous and I’m sure amazing with the right employees working! First thoughts when stepping inside was wow! Everything looked perfect! I chose this place because I’m more into their menu. I love burgers, pizza, and salads! So I took my mother for Mother’s Day and like me she fell in love with the site of the place to. We were seated and waited for our waiter who took almost 15 mins to introduce himself and grab us drinks. After that we were looking through the menu and started ordering our food but weren’t able to order some appetizers because of it being an all day bunch thing which was fine. So we were sorta rushed into ordering food and when I asked about the bunch menu he said it was the same just couldn’t order appetizers which turned out to be false. They had a couple other things that I would’ve been happier having. But anyways me and my mother settled with burgers. We both ordered them med well which was far from what we got. Our burgers were truly burnt. I would’ve been ok with well done but this was beyond that. We are not the type of people to complained so we ate what we could. Our waiter never checked on us and when he did he took over 10 mins with our refills which started to get me a little angry because my mouth was really dry from the burger and taste. I had to ask the hostess to get the waiter for us because I didn’t see him. So I want everyone to know that this place honestly is amazing and so gorgeous but my experience was not what I thought it would be because of the waiters attitude. But please do give this place a try cause I’m sure that your experience will be better than mine. I am still going to give it another shot because I know it’s worth it

Every single staff member really made us feel at home. They had live music, and I loved it...yes it adds to the noise level a tiny bit. We had great beer , suggested by our waiter! I had a burger with the greatest onion rings ever!!! My boyfriend marveled over the great pizza he had. The atmosphere is funky and vintage, exposed brick and nice soft lighting. I really liked it !

Sat in the Alley to hear the band. Server was good and knew the menu well. Band was fun, ambiance perfect. I’m not a beer person so I would have liked some more choices on alcohol, only one bourbon but it was drinkable. My son did enjoy the Allentown IPA and the food was really well done. Creative burger, cheese steak with goat cheese, Cuban sandwich all spot on.

We went as a party of 9 to celebrate a Bachelorette Party before heading over to the PPL Center for a hockey game. We got stuck in traffic and ran about 35 minutes late and they were so mice and accommodating for us once we finally did arrive. The atmosphere outside was adorable and the food and drinks were al delish! We passed by after the hockey game ended and could hear the band outside playing and they were so good! Definitely going to go back for dinner with the music and want to try the brunch as well.

Our meals were brought out piece-meal. One came out 10 minutes before two others. And the fourth (mine) never came and we had to ask where it was. They somehow forgot to bring out and then actually remade the dish which was delicious once it came.

Our food was fantastic, despite the fact that both my husband and my first choices were not available. We had a burger and a sandwich upon the recommendation of our server, and they did not disappoint! The red wine goat cheese spread in my steak sandwich was delicious! We will be back to try what we originally wanted!
