4 of us had a great dinner on Wednesday (Taco Night!). I get that they like to portray themselves as a "dive bar" - which it might have been at one time - but you won't find this kind of interesting menu at an old db. Try the mac and cheese with crab meat if available. Amazing array of cocktails (try the Orange Julius!) and collection of beers. Great and attentive service. A little raucous at times, but not annoying like contemporary "sports bars". Here you can play a couple of racks or shoot some darts while you're waiting for your meal - or just hang out with a few of those cocktails and some of their appetizers - shrimp potstickers are amazing! (and by the way, prices are a steal!)

Glad we didn't listen to the B&B owner and came here anyway! Make sure to check out the blackboard behind the bar for the specials. Tried the Bacon Corn Chowder and it was excellent - full of flavor and creamy. Tried the Pierogies a la Kevy - the addition of tomato, cheddar, jalapeno and onion made for an interesting change up to this dish. Ordered the Cuban sandwich and the Ham and Swiss Burger and both were excellent. We will definitely come back again the next time we are in the Jim Thorpe area.

We went to UPH on suggestion from our host for an early dinner. It's a nice neighborhood bar with delicious food. We started with pierogi's a la kevy. Full, fried, covered with jalapeno, onions and cheese. Very tasty, a double order could be a full dinner. We were in the mood for burgers and they were spot on- house made, cooked perfectly. The California burger was basic, LTO, but two handfuls, in house made pub chips were tasty and crispy. The Big Boy burger- pulled pork, bacon, chilli sauce on a house made burger was perfect. A few cold drinks and dinner was complete. It's a cash only place but an ATM is on site. It's a bit small but they don't forget you. Definitely will be back.

We were visiting from RI, but were made to feel like we come in all the time. Excellent bartenders. Food was top notch, and reasonably priced. On the "other side of the river", but well worth it!

Stopped in here after a event in Jim Thorpe. Being a fan of dive bars I had to stop in and check it out and i was very pleased! Good beer offerings, service (bartender) was great and the food was on point! I'll definitely make this one of my regular stops!
