Late Night Feast

Our first time visiting Jim Thorpe; we arrived at the hotel around 7:30. We were hungry from the drive and were recommended to eat here. We walked into the restaurant around 8, and they were happy to serve us even though it appeared as they were about to close. The service was great, and the food... read more

We were completely blown away by everything at this restaurant. We were a party of 6 and each ordered something different from his menu. As mentioned in other reviews, each dish offers a unique (delicious) flavor and presentation. Everything was fresh! Made on the spot and beautifully blended with fruits and/or vegetables to enhance the flavors of the main course.... More

There are many good places to eat in Jim Thorpe, but The Wheel is by far the best and holds up against any fine dining in Philadelphia or New York. The service was attentive and responsive. The menu is excellently conceived with an array of enticing dishes of beef, lamb, seafood and vegetarian. The food was masterfully prepared. The chef... More

Tom, the owner and chef is a true artist and food is his medium! And I really appreciate that he remembers from one... More

My friends and I travel every year all over the US. This town had a little shopping, some entertainment and this great restaurant! The food was spectacular! Each plate was special and unique. The staff was accomodating and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening! We tried all the restaurants in town over our week long stay and went back to Wheel... More

My wife and I asked numerous locals where to eat in Jim Thorpe, and The Wheel was always in the top 3 or 4. We arrived late in the evening on a quiet night and we were graciously welcomed. Being a music head I immediately noticed a soundtrack of Miles Davis and other great jazz, including tunes by owner/chef Tom... More

We only had a table of 6 too small for the tapas menu upstairs, but the owner went out his way with 2 birthday guests and prepared the tapas menu. It was unique, generous and very good. The service was fun, the wine was limited but good we had a lot of fun. Definitely going back there again worth the... More

There are few really good places to eat in 'greater metro' Carbon County and this place is one of them. Chef Tom is a cool guy. He and his wife run the place and have a bizarre yet interesting sense of style and creativity, which shows in the food and the décor. Tom will come out and chat it up,... More

After exploring the streets of Jim Thorpe on my first visit to the quaint town, my boyfriend and I decided to step out of the cold and into The Wheel for a quick drink. We just had to check out the fun and quirky atmosphere inside. Even though there isn't a formal bar inside, they were more than happy to... More

The owner/chef created quite an assortment of small plates for our group. It was a great evening of very good food and outstanding service. Will return again and again!
