There's so much to say about Tony Stella's Encore in Jim Thorpe. My wife and I love Jim Thorpe, but had never eaten at Tony Stella's. It was a weekend away for us, and we figured "why not?" We booked reservations online for 6:30 PM. We arrived at 6:25 PM and were promptly seated. The maitre d' (I'll give you a hint, it's Tony) reviewed the specials for the evening, and checked back often (but not too frequently) to make sure everything was going well. The atmosphere is cozy and elegant. It is an old Victorian home converted to a restaurant. Very nice, very quaint, but not cramped.

The beer list is extensive, the cocktails were mixed perfectly, the service was outstanding. We both ordered the fillet stuffed with lobster tail. Although we ordered medium steaks, and they came out more medium well than medium, it's not enough to take away from this restaurant. Service was prompt, and friendly. There was some wait for the food, but it wasn't unreasonable, and it is what is expected when food is cooked to order, and not sitting on a hot table waiting for a home.

I cannot comment on desserts. We were satiated from the entrees alone, and didn't want to over do it. We were offered an after dinner drink complements of Tony. Again, we passed. Overall, it was an enjoyable dinner, and my wife and I are looking forward to returning soon!

Tony was fantastic! We ended up in a cozy corner next to the talented singer. The evening was charming. The food was divine! from the scallops to risotto to pork and veal! Cherry Jubilee was amazing and Tony was kind enough to treat us with after dinner drinks on the house. The wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The atmosphere elegant yet comfortable.
Definitely recommended.

nice cool place but as we read the article in the menu about how they do not over charge for there wines we ordered two glasses of house wine as the bar tender told us they were priced at 7.00 in menu we were charged 9.00 and when we questioned it she told us we got premium wine so I reminded her of what she served us and told us what the wine was{and it was far from premium} she quickly changed her story and said they never got time to change the old prices from the last owner and said she could talk to Tonyif we wanted-the whole thing was just wrong
Until we got our bill we were going to go back for dinner but now were not sure. By the way we paid the18.00

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the town. The service if excellent, food is always outstanding, the selection of Absinthe is really good. Tony is overly attentive to everyone in the restaurant treating everyone as though they were part of his family. All of his staff follow his lead. I have been here on numerous occasions and have never had a single bad experience.

We sat at the bar and was given a history of the building. Tony Stella treats everyone with the utmost respect. The place is very inviting and friendly. Even though we only stopped for drinks this time, we will be coming back for dinner and spending time upstairs for drinks and relaxation after we see a show at the opera house! Thank u for your kindness! Now I'm gonna have to get a bottle of that old amazing whiskey we sampled!!
