Great sandwich and service

I don't know what happened with the previous reviews. We go to a lot of places and would never put up with what people are saying on here but we did not come close to the experience that about 6 in a row have. We stopped in for lunch on a whim as we were staying across the street at... read more

Very cute place but the food was horrible. French onion soup had no taste and the wings tasted like freezer burn. Staff was nice but extremely slow. Bottom line the food was not worth the price or time.

We went in for breakfast on the morning of New Year's Day. Let me say, our first breakfast of 2016 was memorable. First, we were seated directly behind another table of four. This may seem petty, but keep in mind, it was the end of December, and all three tables were seated near the door. I don't believe the heat... More

If the mediocre food doesn't put you off tge terrible service will. I've been in here on other occasions that didn't live up to even my lowest expectations. This trip for breakfast took the cake! It's almost like they don't want you there. DON'T waste your time or money!

Went here on a trip to Jim Thorpe with my boyfriend. We made the mistake of stopping in Bear Appetit for a quick breakfast before we left. The food was horrible, the place looks like they couldn't even bother to spend a dine decorating and when my boyfriend opened a creamer for his coffee it came out chunky! Gross.. My... More

We walked in and walked out of the loud restaurant that looked like a cheap diner. We returned due to lack of other places being open. The waitress was rude and unhelpful. My daughter ordered three items which we all sold out and decided to get ice cream. We ordered French onion soup which came out barely warm, tasting like... More

Slow service, food was not good at all, decor is lame, great storefront, ambiance wasted as soon as you enter. Table next to us and behind were complaining about how slow and once food came out sporadically, they weren't happy either with the poor quality either. Much better options in town. This place is poorly run. But...the fries were good.

Should have known when other establishments were crowded and this one wasnt. Service was slow, food was really bad. Onion soup was water with onion in it. Wings were freezer burned and still had feather pieces on them. Salad was wilted lettuce and 1/4 bite of cucumber with chopped onion, yes chopped. Pene Ala vodka was like watery pink tomato... More
