Lunch on Sunday. 6 large screen TV's adorn the walls showing a variety of sports. Service started out slow as waiter was more interested in socializing with other staff than paying attention to clients. As more people arrived he went into work mode. Menu had some interesting choices and food was a cut above average. Decor was tables surrounding the... More

This restaurant gave us a private room for our family the night before my nephew's wedding. Food was great. Gemma, our waitress put up with all of us and was amazing. I highly recommend this venue.

Came for drinks, and this is a great neighborhood bar. Good atmosphere, good drinks, great prices. Food looked great; will definitely get it next time as it looked good. Don't miss it!

Third year I have attended a banquet of sorts upstairs at the cafe. Always a nice night, good food, cash bar and a nice place up above the restaurant and bar but yet open and spacious. Coconut shrimp, bacon wrapped scallops, wraps, meatballs, fruit plates and cheeses all very good. Even their pizza was very tasty! I Recommend! Parking in... More

I haven't been to Third and Spruce in awhile and not sure I will go back anytime soon. My husband and I were in the neighborhood and I suggested going there for dinner. I ordered the crab BLT, it wasn't bad, just a very small crab cake on a big roll. My husband ordered the filet sandwich which he usually... More

Moderately priced, American menu (and oysters) with local sports bar ambiance and super service. Everything was great ... and ample parking was directly across the street. This place is truly one of Reading's gems ... on the West Reading side of the river.

If you love oysters, this is the place! Every Tuesday evening is buck a shuck! Choice of 5 or 6 different fresh oysters. Definitely delicious. Recommend making a reservation on Tuesdays.
