Nine of us made advanced reservations for my husband's birthday dinner. After a bit of discussion on the phone of the merits of a private upstairs room and a choice of the regular menu vs a party menu of tapas, we decided on the upstairs (to avoid the drafts cited by other reviewers) and to order from the menu since...

I took my boyfriend to The Wheel for his birthday dinner. I stopped in earlier in the day to make the reservation and I gave some candles to the owner to put on our dessert. Not only did he remember the request< he and his staff sang and made the presentation very special. They served us chocolate mousse cake (on... More

The Wheel restaurant on 107 Broadway in Jim Thorpe, PA was recommended by friends in Nyc who travel there often for the unique dining adventure and amazing food, glad they did because it was more than expected and we are very picky customers. A small and cozy place the vibe is warm and personable and then some. The food is... More

Six of us went to Jim Thorpe Pennsylvania for my birthday weekend girlfriend getaway. Having decided to have a nice dinner, and checking online for menus, we decided to go to the Wheel, and made reservations. While out sightseeing we saw the restaurant and were intrigued by the interesting artwork outside. We were then greeted by a gregarious gentleman who... More

The atmosphere is unique and the food is great. The chef came out and spent some time making sure everything was to our liking and talking about the menu. We really enjoyed the personal attention and will definitely return!

What an amazing meal, one of the best I ever had! The atmosphere of the restaurant is artisticly eclectic and begins at the doorsteps. The artistry moves through the entire restaurant and makes its way into the kitchen. From the Baltimore meets Tokyo crab cakes and the baby scallop stuffed mushrooms appetizer the flavors were perfectly balanced with great aroma.... More

Heard great things about Jim Thorpe so came down during our stay near Big Boulder. Saw the TripAdvisor reviews outside as well as the menu. Walk in without reservations before 6PM. They seated us immediately but near the door. Doesn't work on cold evenings in the mountains. Most disappointing was the service and management. Sat down and was handed the... More
