Austin's Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By hqueeniew - Reading, Pennsylvania

I prefer Austin's over the many chains that are available in the area. The food is good and the service is good as well. With so few choices for dining, Austin's does a good job of providing a well-rounded menu and good service. Portion size is good and has a pleasant presentation.

First time to this restaurant. Love the food, enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress was super friendly even though it was very busy. We had about a half hour wait but it was worth it. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for an unusual place in sinking Springs,PA.

Although I have grown up in the area, I had no idea you could get authentic bagels in Reading. We stopped for breakfast while I was visiting family and am so happy I took a chance. Service is wonderful...quick and pleasantly delivered. The cream cheese was fresh and the prices were very reasonable. Plan on returning when I am back in town. Great for breakfast or lunch, they have a nice, clean seating area.

Chatty Monks Brewing Company

At Chatty Monks Brewing Company, our story is quite simple. Our business was born out of five friends with one thing in common: the need to make exceptional craft beer. Named as one of the Top 50 brewpubs nationwide and Top 10 in the Northeast by CraftBeer. We are a dedicated group of beer-loving guys seeking to put our own personal mark upon this fast-growing sector of small batch brewing. It is our passion to bring enjoyment to others in the form of outstanding craft beer, brewed with the highest level of integrity and utilizing true craftsmanship in our trade. We combine this with an artisanal approach to American Gastropub fare using only fresh and local ingredients.

My husband and I were in town for a concert so we decided to hang out on Penn Street at Chatty Monks. It was Valentine's Day, but we arrived late afternoon w/o reservations and got seats at the bar right away. The crowd picked up pretty quickly. Only one bartender, but he did a great job - filling beers, taking food orders, answering the phone. Beer was okay. We split two flights for a total of six beers. The food was pretty good. They have a small menu of some typical bar food, but they had Valentine's Day specials + their regular specials offered. Before we came here we visited the Barley Mow (craft beer house) about 1.5 blocks away. We parked on street (free 2 hour parking) and it was an easy walk to both places.

Mission Bbq

Reviewed By RainbowNM - Belen,NM

This place is not to be missed. We ate here Nov 3 because our usual restaurant in the area has 90 minute wait. HOW LUCKY WE WERE NOT TO WAIT. Checked our phones for eateries in the area, ans MISSION BBQ sounded interest; and we called at 7:00 PM on a weekend nite were told no wait. All I can say is that the menu is limited, but the FOOD WAS TOP NOTCH. We had the beef brisket which was perfectly cooked and served in chopped pieces. Sides cost additional,but two of us ate beef brisket, each with a generous side of hot cheese potato salad, a piece of cornbread and unlimited fountain drinks for under $26.00.The theme throughout the restaurant is military, and the MISSION BBQ theme is carried thru the facility. We were so impressed with all aspects that we returned our second nite in town ! !

We highly recommend this restaurant, now a chain. The decor is from all types of occupations that protect us....military all branches, state and local law enforcement and fire protection; and even some sports memmorabilila. We spend 15 minutes after our dinner walking around and reading all the stuff on the walls.

The chain is growing. THIS PLACE IS A managed with love and respect for God and Country.

LOOK FOR THIS CHAIN...PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN ...

The Tavern on Penn

Reviewed By gwenrich8 - Reading, Pennsylvania

A nicely refurbished neighborhood tavern in West Lawn. The place is small, but there is a side room so you don't have to sit in the bar area. It gets noisy, but is what one would expect. The food was well prepared and presented. There are not a lot of entrees, mostly bar fare...burgers, sandwiches, salads...but a nice selection from which to choose. My salmon and my friends crab cakes were delicious. Our server was congenial and knowledgeable. Prices are good for the quality. Definitely an informal place to dine (and imbibe!)

West Reading has been quite successful in marketing Penn Avenue restaurants and shops. Visitors will enjoy the selection of eateries, as there are many. Have lived in the area for over 10 years and just visited Say Cheese! Delightful. The din of restaurant noises, diners and openness has the feel of a New York restaurant. Beer and wine available. Limited menu but everything we ordered was superb. Must try the fried Brie - outstanding!

I have eaten here probably over a dozen times. We went tonight 2-6. We got sat immediately. We then had 1 waitress who came by, told us the specials and took our drink order. Soon we had another waiter who told us he was taking over. This is when it went downhill. Example, I asked about the King Crab legs, and how is it? His answer was most of it is good. Most of it? My wife asked for her tuna rare and blackened. He then asked her 2 more times how she would like it done while taking the order. I also got a Ceaser salad with anchovies. We also asked for 2 waters. Time went by and no waters. Had to ask someone else. Got the Ceaser no anchoives, no waiter asked someone else to get it. Got our entrees. My wifes tuna was hardly blackened but she gave up trying to find the waiter, and just ate it. She said it was not good. My king crab legs, came with a cracker, a small fork, but not a smaller pick etc to get the meat out of the narrow parts. I also only got a smaller piece of lemon. This is when I found out what the waiter meant. Most of it was good, parts of it was overcooked. So I guess he was honest. The sides where good. We also got the desert special that bourbon bread pudding. Not taste of bourbon, and was not good, but at least it was free as I had a birthday coupon for it. My wife figured out that the waiter had tables across from us, that he was always at, but seemed to forget us. My wife said, we have some really good meals but some not so good, and the service is too inconsistant so she said we are done. I suggested if you get the cheaper items on the menu, like the fish and chips they seem to be good. Explore the higher price items and it seems hit or miss. Also one thing that bothered me. I saw my waiter restocking the paper goods in the bathroom. To me a waiter handling food, should not be doing that. Especially a waiter that seemed to be missing our table.

Reviewed By Deborah J B - Bernville, Pennsylvania

Went there for dinner because our daughter says she loves it here.
The restaurant is very nice and the booths are an added touch. We were seated promptly.
Our server Aaron seemed very professional and attentive. That is until we got home and I checked our bill. He up-charged both of our meals and did not tell us. When I called and spoke to the front of the house manager about this and he said there is a $1.00 up-charge for the seafood soup. I told him our server never told us about it and my husband had the salad and not the soup. He said he would credit our charge card the $2.00 the next time we were in and give us as a free appetizer for the miss-understanding.
Other than that the food was excellent. The rolls were very small but good, and we had to ask for more. The food is a little pricey.
Not sure if we will go back.
