Canal Street Pub & Restaurant
Since its inception in 1996, the Canal street Pub & Restaurant has been a favorite among most locals in Berk's County owing to its casual yet overwhelming atmosphere. The main entrance may give you a pompous impression with the large logo of the pub on its front facade, but the interiors are pleasantly modest. The golden wood polished interiors and the spacious seating arrangement of the pub give a uniquely serene feel to the place. The pub also features a pool table and gives a pleasant view of the brewery alongside it, along with great food and a special collection of beers. The wine bar gives a view of the dining room which is perfect for a close-knit dinner. The Banquet room seats up to 30 people and is entirely done in wood making it a great venue for private gatherings and parties alike.
Just moved to Reading from an Urban community 7 months ago. The first time that I've been in this place is on Thursday night for a farewell party for one of my colleague. The place is clean but not classy at all. Me and my daughter waited for about 3 minutes to be seated on a thursday night when there is about 8 people at the restaurant, nobody came and help us, so when the couple next to us told me that I can just go in the back to join the party, I went in but end up at the bartender area since I am not familiar with the place and there are no one that really is willing to help a customer. Then one of the bartender finally directed me where to go while the other people customer and employee were laughing and snickering. I've never been embarassed like this. But we stay with our group. The service was very slow. It took almost 3 hours to serve 20 people, and it does not include the time for dessert. I will never recommend this place and will even discourage people from coming to this place. I talked to my co-worker about this and we will not think of doing another function here ever again.
It's amazing what you can do with an old brick factory. Food's a little overpriced but typically very good. Presentation is key here. Their menu doesn't have a big selection. Nice place to take a date... or you mom. lol On weekends they have bands and some night life at the bar. Check it out!
Food is always cooked the way one likes it. All the sandwiches have great toppings without extra charges and the people working there treat the customers like family. When they have bands on Friday and Saturday nights, they have great bands, bands that can be joyfully listened too. Great place to take a date to, can have a conversation and listen to great music when the bands are there. They also brew the best beer, a treat of its self.
I ate here a few times and had drinks a few nights as well.
It's an older crowd and more mature and classy than some of the other bars in town. The food is good and the interior is beautiful.
An excellent place to take a date, or a group of friends for a fun night with good food and drink.
