Food was just ok but we ordered a side of bacon and took one bite and it did not taste right so we did not eat anymore. We told the waitress and she did not remove it off the bill! Just terrible service

1 star is too much for this places. The server was extremely rude and didn't visit the table often. My fiancée order salmon and it was extremely salty. When brought to the servers attention all she said was "it shouldn't be". I ordered the tofu burger, which was mush and unappetizing.

We enjoyed a late lunch here on a blustery Friday with no evidence of hordes of train passengers looking for restaurants so we had none of the service issues mentioned in previous reviews. Our server was prompt and pleasant, the menu offered abundant choices, and the food for our group of four was plentiful and delicious. I was surprised by... More

So, some quick background is needed to explain the need for this great little restaurant to beef up their management skills. This town is the main landing point for the lehigh scenic railroad so the whole town knows what times droves of tourists will be pouring into the little eateries in town. Therefore there is no excuse for not being... More

We stopped in for lunch while in Jim Thorpe for the weekend...they were slammed. We had no particular place to go, so the four of us simple waited patiently and chatted - unlike the furious couple behind us, who had been waiting 45 minutes for their food! When they complained, the hostess responded rather rudely. Their food finally came- but... More

They were packed. Waited a normal time to be seated. Waitress took a long time to get our refreshments order. Ordered food at the same time. Took quite awhile to get food. Our soups were splashing out of the bowl, as the waitress delivered them. My wife's Chicken Noodle Soup contained a portion of one noodle. My Caesar salad was... More

Open early which is convenient. Had breakfast before riding the train. Good portion and decent prices. Combined with friendly service it's a win.

My husband and I had lunch here, it's located directly across from the Inn at Jim Thorpe. Service was excellent and the food was great. We came back in the evening for some ice cream. Great spot!!!!

We were hungry and they were open, looked like a nice spt for supper. We were immediately seated and had great service. Food was hot, but a bit odd... I had a chicken alfredo on risotto, What was odd was the bottom of the dish had regular spaghetti sauce, then the risotto and chicken and alfredo. Just a strange combination...... More
