About Us

The GIN MILL RESTAURANT AND TAVERN welcomes you with wholesome American fare prepared through simple, time-honored cooking methods. Locally owned and operated since the early 1930’s, the then 4th Avenue Café served the local Bethlehem Steel workers as a place to relax after a day’s work.  The name morphed into the 4th Avenue Gin Mill in the 1950’s.  Although the steel industry waned, the Gin Mill’s longstanding reputation kept business alive for many years.  The Arnold family transformed the Gin Mill a decade ago into a more modern establishment.  This contemporary neighborhood tavern evokes the warmth and welcoming setting of a residential kitchen and gathering place.
We have established partnerships with individual breweries and distributors that will allow us to debut new creations, feature limited quantity selections, and to make available the most sought after beers and breweries. We rotate 12 or more local, national, and international craft beers to offer the best selection available on our 16 tap system.  We have updated our wine list and carefully paired different styles with food items on the menu so you can experience the remarkable compatibility of food and wine.  We use the freshest ingredients available in food preparation, and strive to assist our local communities by using PA Preferred vendors:

As our restaurant grows, we continue to focus on our guest’s satisfaction. We understand that our success lies in the meaningful connection we have established with our neighbors and members of the community. We look forward to the future and are excited to further develop business with a new generation of Arnold’s as owners in 2014.  With the recent launch of our new, mobile-friendly website at www.lebanonginmill.com, our menu, weekly specials, and current draft lists can be viewed online.  Follow us on Facebook to remain current with our upcoming events, and look forward to the forthcoming release of the Gin Mill mobile app.  Whether watching a game, having lunch with co-workers, or celebrating life events with family and/or friends, we aspire to be your local neighborhood tavern.
Thank you for being our guest!
