Dining & Drinking in South Bethlehem

Piping hot pizza pies hand-tossed and fired on brick. Curry spiced rice and noodles tossed with locally grown vegetables and handmade peanut sauce. Fresh cut potato fries dressed in cheese curds and gravy, washed down with a local craft brew. These are a few small forkfuls of the flavors you'll discover in SouthSide Bethlehem – and they'll leave you wanting for nothing else but seconds (and maybe thirds).

From old town pubs elevating the standards of classic American bar food, to rooftop restaurants offering the very best upscale dining experiences, to Mom N' Pop dine-ins offering the tastiest comfort foods imaginable, if you're craving it then you can find it on the SouthSide.
