Our Story

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.
