Came here for breakfast. One lady was hostess/waiter/bus person. We told hostess there were two of us. She sprayed clean a table and got the menus and placemats down and walked away without actually saying anything to us. It took her a while to come back and ask what we wanted to drink. Water and coffee. Took her a while... More

Our second time at Bear Appetit. Food isn't bad actually (although they don't chop up the onions or ham in your omelet more like big slices). However, the staff (especially the host) is frankly not friendly or professional. He actually pointed at a table and then changed his mind and pointed us toward another table. We waited for 13 minutes... More

We had breakfast here when we stayed at Jim Thorpe Inn. The omelettes were very fluffy and very good. For dinner I had the blackened Salmon which was cooked perfectly and crunchy on the outside. I would definitely eat here again.

Decent food, but nothing to rave about. Okay for a quick bit. Lots of choices, big menu which may not be a good thing. I would suggest downsizing the menu and maybe the food quality would improve.

Recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. Right in the heart of town. Would definitely stop here on future travels.

We found Jim Thorpe an adorable walking town as part of our Poconos excursion. The price was right and the setting was good for our three kids. The menu and prices were right. The food was good, not inspired but reliable. Not a gourmet experience but with three kids they had something for everyone. These places are trying to do... More

Walked in at 11:38 and were told it was too late for breakfast, even though it only ends at 11:30 and there were no other patrons...not a big deal. Order coffee, it comes, ask for cream when we order ur meaks and cream never comes. Had to ask for it at the counter. Then when our food arrived, the waitress... More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch after a morning of hiking. We thought the menu sounded good and the restaurant looked cool. We ordered some pork potstickers as an appetizer but they were not potstickers, just fried pork wontons and the flavor was not what we expected. I ordered a sandwich that I could not pick up...
