Ribbon Cutting at Youell's Oyster House

Ribbon Cutting at Youell's Oyster House

Dinner crowds are once again flocking to Youell’s Oyster House in the 2200 block of Walnut Street in Allentown.

Mayor Ed Pawlowski attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the popular dining spot on Monday, May 19. Youell’s had been destroyed in a January 2013 fire. Construction on the new $2 million building and restaurant project began in September and was completed in March. The project was aided by a $150,000 low interest loan from the City of Allentown Economic Development Loan Fund.

The new 6,000 square foot building includes a mezzanine level and a rooftop garden. The first floor seats 120 patrons and the mezzanine level can seat 40 more.

Businesses interested in applying for a loan from the Allentown Economic Development Loan Fund should contact Business Development Liaison Duane Tolson at 610-439-5964 or at
