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.

The café is across the street from the Inn at Jim Thorpe. It is open every day, but closes at 8 pm before Memorial Day. The food is good and the prices are reasonable for dinner (unlike the Broadway Grille). My husband and I ate breakfast and dinner there several times.

We looked at the menu at lunch time & the place seemed pretty busy, so we looked at their hours & thought let's try someplace new for dinner. Well, the bottom line is - they probably shouldn't even serve dinner. If they have happy people coming for lunch they should really stick to that. There were 3 tables including us.... More

If you are looking for a nice casual meal (soups, salads, sandwiches, etc) at a very decent price, this is the place to go. I had the grilled vegetable panini- it was very fresh and tasty. The owners/staff are very friendly and down to earth. I highly recommend it!
