Restaurant
“Very similar to Shick's below, although a little different vibe--more low key in my opinion. Outdoor seating area is nice in warm weather. Full bar available. No smoking.”

Brewery
$$
“Newly opened brewery as of Summer 2018. Has about 8-10 beers on tap and a few simple snacks like chips and pretzels. Beers are very good and locally made. Great interior ambiance--good for large groups. Games available too! Outdoor seating in the back during the warmer months. A must for first-time visitors to the area.”

Coffee Shop
$
“Newly opened coffee shop as of early Summer 2018. It’s been completely renovated and nicely decorated. Really comfortable place to do work, read a book, or relax. Has wi-fi. Serves all the regular coffee drinks (lattes, cappuccinos, etc), teas, and some specialty drinks. They use local Mauch Chunk Coffee roasters, which is the best in the area.”

Liquor Store
“Another beer distributor that might be easier to visit if one is already in Tamaqua. Open every day at least until 9 pm, sometimes 10 or 11 pm.”

Restaurant
“Really good upscale dining in a quaint vintage setting. The Train Station has been recently renovated after it was almost demolished in the 90s. The ongoing improvements have been led by community volunteers with amazing results. The menu is classic American dining aimed at a sophisticated palette. They also have a full bar. ”

Bar
“This bar has a full menu with a diverse set of dining options. The beer selection isn't very wide, but they also have a full bar. Good for a nightcap or a meal. No smoking in this bar, which is worth mentioning because a handful of bars in the area still allow smoking if you're into or not into that.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“This is the other local grocery store which might be best visited on your way through Tamaqua to the Schoolhouse. It is not as close as Walmart but is a good alternative option.”
