“Good Food Fun Atmosphere Friendly Service”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We liked the historical feel of this old hotel and restaurant. Food was good. Service was a little slow at first - it was a very busy Saturday afternoon and we were seated in the main dining room. Our server was wonderful though - very friendly sharing ghost stories and JT history with our family.

“decent”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

went there again being in Jim Thorpe while my son played at Skirmish March 9th.
fish and chips was really good, soup was about average.
fast and friendly service, got seated and served without delays despite it was quite busy, day before St Patrick's parade and a lot of visitors.
the town itself wasn't decorated as much as last year by the way and surprisingly no live music on the streets.

“poor service and as an added bonus”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Here you have a hostess who asked my party to leave at dinnertime because she did not believe we would spend enough money.

I was recently in Jim Thorpe with a group of friends to attend a concert at the opera house. we arrived separately and text-ed to met up. The other half of our group said they were at Molly Maguires, eating .
Our half of the group were two seniors and a young handicapped person having his 35th birthday.
We arrived at the restaurant to meet our friends who were already seated. I told the hostess, a blond woman in her 40's, that we were meeting friends. She would not allow us to go back and look to meet them.
We walked back ,anyway, and found our friends with an empty table next to them. we sat and when the hostess came over we said that we wanted beer and soft drinks for starts.
The hostess rudely said that since she didn't think we would also order food so we would have to leave the restaurant. It was their dinner hour and we would have to go. The Birthday boy was off-put and we left with a very bad taste in our mouths.

avoid this place and go to the pizzeria up the street. The people up there at the Pizzeria were lovely, friendly and appreciated us even if we didn't look to them like we were going to spend a week's salary.
