Delicious Food is always served at The Apollo Grill in Bethlehem, PA 18018


2015-06-26 17.15.20

This is an easy review to write because whether you are eating lunch or dinner, The Apollo Grill is a delicious restaurant where you can enjoy a very nice meal in a causal atmosphere.   You can’t go wrong by choosing this restaurant because the service and the food are always top notch.  The lunch and dinner menu are filled with favorites however every day a chef’s special which will tempt you to go off-menu.

The Lunch menu is always poised to please.  You can enjoy half portions of most any item on the menu.  Daily lunch specials are always offered.  The crab cakes are always good every time that I order them.   Or the Quesadillas make a nice meal with a salad.  You can’t go wrong with the Buffalo Beer Battered Shrimp or the Asian Lettuce Wraps.  If you are overwhelmed with all of the choices at lunch, I recommend the soup and the salad combo as a good fall back item.  Accompanied by a generous basket of a variety of bread – the Apollo Caesar salad or the Mesclun Greens with vegetables both are ample in size and the bowl of soup is always delicious.  No matter whether you choose the Baked French Onion Soup or the Crab & Asparagus Bisque – you can’t make a bad choice.  The Soup de Jour is always marvelous.  The chef’s soup creation compliments the time of year and includes seasonal ingredients when it is served!

The Diner entrees are scrumptious and plentiful.  The meat selections; beef, lamb, fish or chicken are always done to perfection.  But if you are in the mood to taste more than one dish or if you want to share a variety of selections with someone else at your table, you can do this at the Apollo.  The ingenious menu is split into full and half portions.  So it is a great way to try a variety of specialties in one sitting. Graze through the menu!

But don’t leave without eating dessert!

And don’t forget BRUNCH either!!  Served on either Saturday or Sunday you can enjoy a delicious choice of entrées and signature Bloody Marys or a bubbly Mimosa.

The service and the atmosphere are consistent.  The bar crowd is lively while the dining room is quiet.   You won’t be disappointed by The Apollo Grill’s service or the food.  This is one of my favorite restaurants in town.

Be sure to make reservations, especially if want to dine on a busy weekend night or during the Holidays.  The restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays.  The hours of operation generally from 11am to 10pm.

The Best 4th of July Fireworks in Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley – 2015

Colorful fireworks light up the night sky.

Looking for great Fireworks on Independence Day 2015?  This year the 4th of July is on a Saturday!  So we have the entire weekend to celebrate, feast and fete. Not all townships and municipalities will have fireworks or parades.  Some will have festivities on the 3rd but not the 4th – but that stretches out the FUN!

As of the writing of this here’s the list of the best options in town.  It looks like the City of Allentown is planning a BIG party for the week.  If you have other fireworks additions leave a comment and it will get added to the list.  Thanks.

Here’s the list:

1. Steelstacks, Saturday – 7.4.15   The Allentown Band will play and Fireworks will be provided by Embassy Bank.  It should be a wonderful show.

2. Bethlehem City – Saturday 7.4.15-  If the fireworks display from Sand Island Park gets mixed in with the Steelstacks fireworks should have the river valley rockin’!

3. Allentown City – Thursday thru Wednesday 7.2.15- 7.8.15 – There will be a 4th of July Celebration on Linden Street starting at 5:30 right in front of J. Birney Crumb Stadium (gates open at 4:30).  The festival will be family friendly with live bands, dancing, food trucks, and games for the kids.  The fireworks will be at J. Birney Crum Stadium which are put on by the city of Allentown.

4. Nazareth Day – 7.18.15 – It’s a week later but Nazareth will have  fireworks during Nazareth Day always the 3rd Saturday in July every year.

5. Upper Macungie Township – 7.3.15 – FRIDAY NIGHT! – at the Earl Adams Memorial Park in Breinigsville.  Rain date is 7.5.15

6. Township of Salisbury – 7.4.15 – at Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom.  This a charged event however you get to use the rest of the amusement park!  It will cost the price of admission into the park.

7. IronPigs stadium – 7.3.15 – FRIDAY NIGHT .  This is also a charged event but you will get to see the IronPigs play against The Rochester Red Wings.  There will be a “3-D Fireworks Extravaganza” on display after the game.  GO PIGS!!!

8. Easton, PA7.12.15 – Heritage DayThere will be no 4th of July fireworks in the City of Easton.  The fireworks will be done during Heritage Day on Larry Holmes Drive.

9. Northampton Country Club – Saturday 7.4.15 – It’s a private country club so you will have to find a nearby spot to enjoy the festivities.

10. Brookside Country Club – Saturday 7.4.15 – It’s a private country club also so you will need to find a public vantage point to watch the extravaganza in the sky.

A note: Everyone I spoke to said starting time”around 9:00 pm” .  So be there with your blanket or chairs before dark…you know the drill….

Wishing everyone a safe and festive 4th of July!!
