When visiting Jim Thorpe over the Labor Day weekend, we were "pulled into" the Wheel vibe. The food was absolutely wonderful, service impeccable and the interior is crazy-cool. Check out the bathroom! It's a must see.

We enjoyed our fennel pork A LOT. The tomato sauce was fresh and taste with the flavors nicely melded. The booze barge dessert was great. One for two is enough. I was disappointed in the bread though. A bit dry. Efficient friendly service.

I ordered the chicken, avocado and mango salsa. It was not what I expected for the price. The avocado was black in the inside and there was barely any mangos. We also ordered the lobster Mac and cheese. There was not much flavor to it. The drinks were very good. Overall for the price it was not worth it.

This was my second visit to Wheel. Overall my meal was good but left hungry, and I am one to bring half my meal home with me. The menu had to be read to us, as they did not have one in printed form. Makes it a little hard to loll over a menu or see prices since you have... More

This looked like a nice place to eat after water rafting for the day. We went early for our reservation and were told we can wait the half hour there or come back which we did. Then we were given the same available table that was there when we came early and there were many tables available. Others came in... More

My husband and I were walking around Jim Thorpe looking for a special dining experience. After looking at the menu posted outside, we decided it was what we were looking for. Since we had no Saturday evening reservation, we were seated upstairs. This was great as it was so quaint..exposed brick wall, lots of plants and interesting lighting. We shared... More

My wife and I took friends there, everyone loved it. The cool atmosphere is unique and the owner/chef visited our table and chatted, and the food was great.

Great food and service, but its the ambiance that makes this place stand out. You are surrounded by an intriguing mix of antiques and bike themed creations. The menu is not extensive but the food is top calibre with a good selection of local and international wines. Great place for couples.

Don't let the outside fool you... Go in... Sit down, enjoy the quaint atmosphere and ridiculously delicious food. The chef is an artist and it shows (or tastes) in the food. My wife and I had very good meals and excellent service. I was upset I could not take leftovers home because we were traveling. I told the chef he... More
