Tavern at the Sun Inn
As we adjust to outdoors and staffing concerns, some areas of our restaurant may be closed off.
Taverns were a center of daily life in colonial times. They were the local, social and political hubs that spawned the thinking that led to the American Revolution. Tavern at the Sun Inn continues in this tradition offering a Colonial-inspired Seasonal food and beverage menu in a truly unique gathering spot.
Tavern’s culinary team is led by Billy Gruenewald. He offers a casual tavern-style menu that changes to match what is seasonally available and features some ingredients that would have been available to Bethlehem’s founders. Dinner is served on the Sun Inn’s second floor and light fare and drinks outdoors on the beautiful North Green when the weather permits.
Outdoor seating is first come first serve.

What a beautiful historic Inn! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. This place holds many memories for us and it certainly didn't disappoint!
Scotty our waiter was amazing. So accommodating and great personality!
The perfect meal. Ate outdoors on the patio. Steak and duck were cooked to perfection. Never a bad experience here!
Very pleasant meal, blackened cod was delicious.
We started our evening with tastings from Christmas City Distillery with no rush to be seated. Made a few purchases!
Drink orders came in a timely manner .
Appetizer of CheeseWheel was Devine.
Salads were delicious
Main course a culinary delete.
A lovely meal in a historic setting with excellent service. A simple, unpretentious menu. Duck breast was excellent. As was blueberry bread pudding desert.
What a wonderful historical restaurant where President George Washington dined!! Food was amazing and our server was excellent he knew all the history surrounding the restaurant and town! Highly recommend!
We live a few blocks away and always enjoy the unique ambience in the historic Sun Inn, dating back to Revolutionary War I
Indoor and outdoor seating are great, each with its own distinct vibe.
Specialty drinks provide authentic tie-in with heritage theme and are delish and generous.
Due to Pennsylvania’s restaurant restrictions, they currently have a streamlined menu which makes service faster while maintaining high quality.
We’ve enjoyed couples nights and birthday parties, all creating special memories:)
We had a wonderful night at the Tavern at the Sun Inn!
When I arrived for a 6:00 reservation I was told there was a 30 minute wait for the dining side that had tables not picnic tables. The drink and menu were very limited with the items to choose from. I didn’t stay I went to another establishment. The building is absolutely stunning and I have had wine in the past that I have enjoyed. I don’t foresee coming back for dining.
We love dining outdoors with friends at The Sun Inn courtyard. The food and service never disappoint. The night we were there, they has some delicious sangria's available. Yum. (We did not care for the "wine slushy") Only additional comment would be regarding reservations. We made reservations well in advance online though" OpenTable for our last visit. We arrived on time and was told we would have to wait an additional 20 minutes! Hoping if we make reservations again, this won't be the case. That said, everything else was very good and we'll definitely visit again!
Enjoyed!! ,................. .. .... . ......
New waitress in training. First round of drinks were spilled causing a delay. Then our appetizers and salads came out together and dinner right behind them. Everything was good, just would have been better if it was served in a timely way. Manager apologized and offered to remake entrees. Would go back.
Great food and excellent service!
The staff was wonderful & very accommodating. My friend found that her drink was not to her liking and our server asked her if she could make a special concoction for her after hearing why she didn't like the first drink. When she came back with the special concoction, my friend absolutely loved it. That meant so much to both of us. Exceptional service. Thank you guys!
The food and service contributed to a very enjoyable evening.
We enjoyed it. Considering we ate dinner there, during the slow open of the pandemic.
A wonderful meal at a historic landmark where many founders of our county including George
Washington once stayed! Highly recommend dining here especially for history buffs!
Small menu so real need to be overwhelmed! Service is always stellar and food is perfect! I could go on and on.
We loved getting out for a much needed date night and chose the Sun Inn- we were not disappointed! The outdoor space is perfect and the service was attentive. We had excellent drinks and our food was great!
The Tavern is our favorite place to go for a great meal. We have gotten to know the servers and people who operate the restaurant. It's more like getting together with friends who bring you great food and drinks.
As always the food is outstanding. The wait staff was attentive and the historic atmosphere is the best.
Great place for a date night! Their drinks are especially delicious. The menu is somewhat limited but everything on it is excellent. Would highly recommend!
Service, Food, and ambiance excellent!
Felt so cozy, Ashley our server is Amazing!
Seated immediately after arriving 15 minutes early. Our server was at our table immediately and we did not wait for anything the entire evening.
The experience was excellent as this is a historic inn frequented by Washington, Franklin and others when passing though this area. The old time charm is still there.
It was a great experience. friendly and helpful staff.
The food was good and the Service was Excellent.
A beautiful setting with amazing food and excellent service.
Scottie was amazing! Food was incredible and the drinks was delicious
Food is always great. I had the duck which was juicy without being greasy and the sweet potatoes on the side were very tasty. The service is excellent. Prompt and efficient. COVID standards were being adhered to. I just love this place.
My wife and I were fortunate to have booked this classy restaurant for Valentine's Day only a few days before. I was unsure of what to expect, and I must say management has done a phenomenal job with the reorg of the place. Our meals were delicious, and the pleasant atmosphere and special history (look them up) make it a unique experience for everyone to enjoy. Kudos to the chef and the rest of the Sun Inn team!
If you are looking for a more upscale restaurant with a unique menu dining experience you want to give the Sun Inn a try. You do not have to be dressed to the nines so please do not let the word upscale scare you. Even their mixed drinks have a twist to them, but they also have a large wine and beer list. The building itself has such character and historic value that it adds to the experience.
Historic, atmospheric, excellent service and menu!
Fantastic dinner! Great for date night. Definitely will return soon.
The food at Sun Inn was excellent. Service was good too. The atmosphere was disappointing in that this is a very historic restaurant, yet they were playing normal rock music on their system and at a level higher than should be for dining. I love rock, however, it totally ruined the ambiance of a 1700s historic inn. Overall, a nice place though.
Had a wonderful night. Food was amazing and Scottie was a amazing!
We went during covid and the place was empty and weirdly quiet. I’m guessing g it’s a much better place during normal times.
Always a great place for a relaxing and delicious dinner.
