Stopped in here with some friends a few weeks ago, and everyone was very happy with their meals and also the friendliness of our server. The only complaint we had, was that the service was rather slow....there were 8 of us in our group, for lunch...we were all seated by 11:45, and, we didn't receive our checks until 1:25....As everyone...

We just went for after dinner cocktails and had a great experience. The cozy atmosphere and friendliness of the staff (notably Jordan the bartender) made for a very fun evening. Will definitely return on my next trip through town!

We stopped in on a Saturday evening and it was packed. The wait for the dining room was 45-60 minutes so got a table in the bar. Our server was GREAT! Their were some craft beers on tap and the food was really good. We will be back soon.

The mussels, tavern burger and salmon sandwich were so very good on a cold winters night! The drink special Purple Haze was a big hit. Our terrific waitress went above and beyond to bring a liquor bottle to the table as we were unfamiliar with one of the liquors.

The West Reading Tavern is one of the longest standing restaurants on Penn Ave in West Reading and for good reason. They have the best french onion soup in the county and some fantastic sandwiches as well. The tavern also has a BOGO special on mussels on Monday nights. The only problem with the Tavern is that the lunch hours... More

WRT has always been a go to for us living in the area. The beer options are many an awesome. Last visit was a birthday celebration, and I had to ask if their was a chef change; and I was told there was. The schnitzel which was my absolute favorite with the leek sauce over the egg noodles was to... More

My wife and I go to the West Reading Tavern on occasion and really enjoy the place. We prefer to go to local establishments. This is a tavern with good food in trendy West Reading which has been around for quite some time. They recently put on an outdoor addition which is perfect for the summer. The food is American...

Until PA made stricter smoking laws, we never could go here - and we are sad we missed it all those years. The food and service are really good, and you don't have to spend a lot to get a lot. Great people too

Family dinner on a Monday night found us unexpectedly enjoying mussel madness at this tried and true local favorite near home. While many restaurants are closed on a Monday, the tavern has a particularly special Monday night with several different mussels available buy one, get one free. Wow. The Thai was sensational but lots of others available too. Our table... More
