“Fun Place, with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Tom, the chef, has figured it out with "The Wheel"! It's a small, fun, eclectic setting in the heart of Jim Thorpe. The food was awesome and even though our waitress was a first timer, Tom made sure we were taken care of. He came out to the table to offer suggestions on the wine, food, and desert, all of which were perfect. We had the scallop dinner from the menu and the crab cakes from the specials...The sauces and sides were great with the dishes, and there was a ton of food. We finished with the bread pudding. What a night, great food, atmosphere, and people.

“Awesome Experience and Amazing Chef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I live in Florida and were visiting the Poconos for the first time. We absolutely loved this place. Tom Gorman was the best cook we have ever encountered and we travel alot and try new restaurants often. Everything was perfect from the creative and romantic ambiance to the amazing service by Don. It is hard to find at 107 Broadway, but so worth the hunt! We had the scallop mushroom buttons, roast pork and baked manacotti with chocolate mousse cake. You can tell that chef Gorman really cares about giving you a great experience. No other meal on our vacation compared to this. We highly recommend it!

“Wonderful Food in a cozy little restaurant with Unique Decor.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

This place is wonderful. On a quick getaway trip near our home to do some biking on the local Lehigh Gorge rail trail, we decided to check out the local shops and restaurants and pick a nice place for dinner. The menu at Wheel was pretty short but sounded very good and was aggressive both in range of ingredients and preparations. As it turned out there were more specials than entrees on the menu so their was plenty to pick from. My Rack of Lamb was great, but the incredible array of surrounding roasted vegetables, sauteed Spinach,and wonderful dipping sauce was even better. My wife had a pasta dish featuring Conch in a spicy tomato based broth that was also outstanding. Highly recommended!!

“A dining pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Friends of ours took us to the restaurant saying we were in for a special meal. They were certainly correct. The experience was wonderful. As soon as we sat down we were given a plate of sweet grapes and bread with a raspberry honey butter. Three of us had the Thai shrimp with jasmine rice and greens in a wonderful sauce. It was presented beautifully. One person had the Aztec chicken and that was creatively served. The chef is artistically creative with all his dishes. Reservations a must. Do not miss this restaurant.
