This looked like a cute place to eat so we stopped after a day of white water rafting.. The hostess/waitress was very friendly The food, however, was pretty mediocre. I ordered the chicken risotto. It came without Alfredo sauce, which is kind of heavy so I asked if they could go light on the sauce, and was told that that... More

It was crowded but the menu looked good so we thought it would be worth it. We came in for lunch. It took at least 45 minutes to get served and even then we had to ask for our food. All around us, others that came in later were getting their lunches. I ordered the eggplant/red pepper wrap. It dripped... More

We ate here for breakfast before we hiked the falls. We figured we needed something substantial prior to climbing a mountain. My friend got the Eggs Benedict, which she liked but said had a little too much Hollandaise. The kids all got the bagels with eggs, cheese and bacon, which were huge but they finished with no problem. I got... More

After standing in line to be seated, we had to wait for a long time for service. The service was indifferent and the food was so so at best. Maybe it was a bad time because it was crowded but I didn't get a good impression and I'll look elsewhere when we go back to Jim Thorpe.

Located right in town, just a short walk from the train. We both had 3 egg omlette, home fries and toast platters ,stuffed with meat and veggies. Nice tasty and filling at a reasonable price.Meter parking in front. Looks nice for lunch and diner as well. Nothing fancy, nice diner menu.

I've wanted seafood since we got to PA and since I was solo today, I figured, why not? Two of my favorite things-mushrooms and crab together? I'll bite. Verdict? Might have been the time for catch and release.

My wife and I had a very good experience at Bear Appetite a few years ago so when we were in Jim Thorpe today we decided to revisit the establishment, despite the bad reviews I had seen on tripadvisor. We weren't ready for a meal when we first passed the restaurant but we went it to see what their soup... More

Did they really need the TV on? Nobody was watching it and it was quite unnecessary. Portions are large. Food quality is OK. They made a mistake with my order of ice-cream and then snatched it away which was rather off-putting. I can't say service was good. So, although I haven't sampled every eating establishment in Jim Thorpe, I'd recommend... More

After our bike ride, we had lunch: sandwich side of salad, burger and fries. The sandwich was great and so big I could only eat half. My husband's burger was good too. Service was great, staff very friendly. Only wish I had room for their ice cream.
