The food was good, nothing special. Service could have been better.

We had an enjoyable meal at this restaurant. We had seen it soon after arriving in Jim Thorpe, and we went back to it hours later, for a late lunch. No one greeted us when we walked in. Someone finally came over. All the empty tables were dirty, most of them with empty, used plates on them. I... read more

Not bad but not great.... I called in an order "to go" for french toast without knowing there was an issue with their bread order. I walk to the restaurant because parking is never fun on Broadway.... it isn't until I walk home that I realize anything was wrong with my order. They took it upon themselves to use raisin... More

Waitress not very friendly or "clean" in appearance. Food was mediocre for the price and took longer than reasonable to be served. I had the Crab Cake sandwich which was okay. The doors were open and the flies were terrible.

My husband, I, and another couple had breakfast here 8/15/15. The hostess was glum. She neither spoke nor smiled when we arrived, but made a barely perceptible gesture with her head indicating where we should sit. Our server (who seemed somewhat more enthusiastic when serving folks she knew) brought lukewarm water for tea, and replaced it with another pot of... More

This restaurant had decent food at a decent price. We found that the waitress was overworked but then noticed that there was a help wanted sign on the door.

Our family with two kids stopped here for dinner while on a day trip to Jim Thorpe. We were tired so we were wanting more of low-key restaurant. The bear decorations were cute and drew us in. The menu didn't look too pricey either. However, we ordered three cheesesteaks and a chicken wrap. The price and menu was comparable to... More

We decided to go here because, honestly, it was raining and it was the closest restaurant. It was a little busy when we went in, but we got a table quickly, escorted by the extremely unfriendly hostess. The service is HORRIBLE. The waitress was unpleasant and never checked on us, ever. The table next to us was seated, ordered, and... More

My husband and I went in for lunch. First off the waitress needed to get a lesson in being pleasant. I ordered the hot Italian roast beef sandwich - it was very fatty and did not taste right. When I told the person who I assume was the manager or the owner, her response was well, I had 2 other... More

I feel compelled to write a review because people have really overrated this place. Eight of us went to breakfast, and everyone ordered something different. The waitress was lovely-I hope she finds a job at a better restaurant. The food took a very long time to arrive. I didn't order any coffee, because they don't serve iced coffee. However, all...

We stopped here for coffee to go. It is a pleasant restaurant seating about 30 people. The breakfast menu looked enticing. Service appeared quick. We came back to order lunch to bring on our rafting adventure. They made us vegetarian Panini sandwiches, with lots of fresh vegetables and cheese, in less than 10 minutes that were delicious four hours later.... More
