This has become our favorite spot to visit on Saturday night. We love to get a mix of appetizers and drinks, though the food off the menu is great too. Huge selection, great bar area, awesome service. Definitely recommend!!!

My mother sister and I went here for lunch. Food was good however, I don't care for all the spring mix in the salad. Would have like at least spinach and romaine. Buffalo shrimp is excellent. The loaded potato soup was great as well. They...More

Had the Southern Fried Chicken sandwich. Was quite late, after 9, but the chicken Patti had definitely been nuked. It was like a pice of leather. Staff and atmosphere was pleasant enough a with in house Saturday entertainment, so the sandwich was a disappointment.

Great steak, definitely recommend prime rib au jus. Great. And the prices are wonderful. Don't forget the wings, top notch. Wings 1/2 price Tuesday. 20 meaty wings a meal of their own

Very busy place but it seems never a long wait. Multi leveled and outdoor seating provide much space. Service is good and food is on target.

When we converted our former restaurant, Platz's Inn, to PJ Whelihan's Lehighton, we kept the historic charm, upgraded the technology and added an awesome outdoor deck. The result is a great mix of neighborhood pub charm, with an expanded menu featuring fun daily specials, served by our same friendly staff. What began as a favorite destination pub with Lehighton locals and vacationing travelers, remains the same great place today.
