Good for quick lunch, prices are fair, and portions hearty

We avoided the herd crowding at the more popular restaurants because of time constraints by walking up the street a little to find this restaurant. We both had cheese steaks which were pretty good, maybe a dollar more than Subway but better tasting. Service was average. Menu had a fair... read more

The food was average at best, which, as it happens, is me paying them a compliment. The typical sandwich option was around $10, which, as it happens, was 2 to 3 dollars too many. Things were half-good and double priced at Bear Appetit, which, as it happens, is a poor pun at best. This was my first visit to their... More

We stopped here for lunch mostly because we weren't looking for a major sit-down meal, which seems to be the norm in Jim Thorpe (although the other, nicer restaurants looked lovely, sometimes you just need lunch!). The food was decent, although nothing spectacular. There's a good variety of salads, sandwiches, burgers, and pasta dishes, and I was impressed there were... More

I would rather be skinned alive than eat at this place again. One the waitress was trashy and ghetto. two I got a panini that was rock hard.Literally. Three. Part of our order never came and waitress was like oh yeah, I forgot. Way way overpriced. It would have been better going to subway. Or McDonald's. Which is a shame... More

Food was well below average, ordered a Cobb salad with little avocado (2 thin little slivers), French Onion Soup was pretty bad, my wife was not pleased at all; the chicken Cascadia was OK my friend had. I am a great tipper (20+% usually) but only tipped 15% because the service was average as well. There are too many great... More

This place is dirty. The decor is awful and old. The insulation hangs visibly from the ceiling. The waitresses are rude and the food is mediocre at best. They also charged someone else's bill to my credit card. Never again.

This was a great place for pancakes and omlettes. The place was very clean, and the service was friendly. This is the first, and only place, I tried scrapple; so I will always remember it!
