Editor’s Note: Michael and Nicole Borrell review Lebanon Valley’s restaurants and eating attractions as the Lebanon Valley Food Critics. The couple aims to offer unbiased reviews of the eating and drinking establishments the Lebanon Valley has to offer. LebTown is pleased to partner with LVFC to share these reviews with our readers. Bon appétit!
It’s felt like forever since the critic crew was out for one of our regular reviews. We’re still recovering from all that red meat in Steak Wars.
We were finishing up a dance class for the little critic and wanted to try someplace new, and fairly close to the dance studio was a new restaurant in a freshly remodeled building.
The crew loaded up and made our way over to 7th Street Bar & Grill. Located on North 7th St. across from Sunset Market, this newly remodeled restaurant offers a pub dining area with a second dining room to the back. The menu features wings, burgers, salads, quesadillas, and entrées.

For our meal this evening, we got the Bleu Moon burger ($17), chicken marsala ($17.95), and kid’s mac & cheese ($8).
The burger comes with bleu cheese, sautéed mushrooms and onions, lettuce and tomato on top of a 8oz angus burger on a brioche bun. This was a quality burger patty that is seasoned and grilled well, and the burger made us want to start another burger war. A little messy, but that’s the way a good burger is supposed to be.
The chicken marsala comes with chicken breast served over fettuccine tossed in marsala wine and sautéed mushroom sauce with garlic bread and salad. This dish is rich in flavor and well prepared and presented. The chicken could have used some seasoning as it tasted bland compared to everything else in the dish. A plentiful portion turned this one into three meals for this critic.
Our Take: This newer establishment provides a good meal that is freshly made. Offering pub fare to quality entrée options, the dishes are done with great quality. We appreciate that french fries or onion rings come as a standard side with most meals. As the new kid on the block, we hope they can keep it going. If you remember the old place, you will be absolutely amazed by the remodel that was done inside.

Be on the lookout as we continue our travels around the Valley. We are also debating what our next “Wars” series will be.
