Tavern-Style Restaurant in Bethlehem, PA

Throughout history, taverns have been a local gathering place for people to eat, spend time together, and discuss ideas. Even the thinking and planning for the American Revolution started in a tavern. At Tavern at the Sun Inn in Bethlehem, PA, we wanted to preserve this rich history and create a casual, relaxed dining experience with colonially reflective food and a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. 

Our History

Tavern at the Sun Inn is housed in a local historical building that was built in 1758. Since 2016, we have provided a light, friendly, and welcoming experience while still allowing people to enjoy the history of our beautiful city. You can take in the historical decor and building without feeling like you are in a museum.

Our Chef

Our restaurant is proud to have Chef Billy Gruenewald at the head of our culinary team. Billy offers a small unique colonial-modern fusion menu that everyone will love. Billy also owns and operates The People’s Kitchen, also located in Bethlehem. He was born and raised here and graduated from Penn State’s hospitality program. 

Our Tavern 

 Our restaurant, including a full-service bar, is located on the second floor of the Sun Inn. We also have a lighter menu that is served on our outdoor patio, weather permitting, that overlooks North Green. For a unique dining experience, our Rathskeller Colonial Cellar Bar is also open in the late fall and winter. We also house our distillery’s bottle sale room.
