    Bear Appetit: Try the French Toast!

    by blueskyjohn Written Jan 22, 2014

    A very basic shop. Decor leans toward a bear motif with different figures around the place. The waitress, Barb, was very helpful with the menu and with local things to do. We ordered just some scrabbled eggs and hash brown potatoes that were very good and a bowl of oatmeal.

    Favorite Dish: We had a side of French Toast that was the best part of the breakfast. When I return I would order this as my main dish instead of a side.

    Moya: Great food!

    Moya was wonderful dining experience. Beautifully decorated, the walls are lined with interesting paintings, all done by the owners wife. The painting are for sale but I did not inquire how much. Hip instrumental music plays in the background. They have a nice wine list and is reasonably priced as are the meals. The wait staff was very good at answering questions. They only had one special, Yellow fin Tuna.

    The chef/owner is Heriberto Yunda and has a good amount of experience. He is originally from Ecuador and has been the chef at several popular restaurants in NYC before moving to Jim Thorpe in 2002.

    Hours:

    Monday 5:00 – 9:00 pm
    Tuesday 5:00 – 9:00 pm
    Wednesday Closed
    Thursday 5:00 – 9:00 pm
    Friday 5:00 – 10:00 pm
    Saturday 5:00 – 10:00 pm
    Sunday 5:00 – 8:00 pm

    Favorite Dish: For the first course, I had the Prosciutto And Baby Spinach. This was Candied Pecans, Gorgonzola Cheese, Dried Cranberries and Pomegranate Vinaigrette. It was delicious but a bit expensive at $12USD. For the main course I had Boneless Braised Beef Short Ribs in a Red Wine Sauce. Again it was very good but the string beans were perfect!

    The only disappointing thing about Moya is the lack of desserts. 6 offerings but 5 of them were some version of ice cream. More variety is needed.

    The Begal Bunch: Great lunch option

    by blueskyjohn Written Jan 20, 2014

    This restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch. A little outside of the main area of Jim Thorpe, it was worth the drive. It happened to be on the way to some hiking for the day and it was the perfect place to pick up a sandwich to go for the day.

    Favorite Dish: I had the chicken and roasted pepper panini. It was delicious!

    Broadway Grill: A different way to serve an Omelet

    by blueskyjohn Written Jan 20, 2014

    The restaurant is connected to the Inn at Jim Thorpe and since we were staying at the Inn it was very convenient. They have a large seating area and also have a bar in another room. There is also a gas fire place. The wait staff were very attentive and food came out very fast.

    Favorite Dish: On the menu was an open face Mediterranean omelet which has feta cheese, kalamata olives and spinach. I asked to change out the feta cheese for mozzarella which was no problem. The omelet was good but the olives were a little over powering the dish.

    Wheel Restaurant: Unique experience

    by blueskyjohn Written Jan 20, 2014

    This is a wonderful eclectic little restaurant. Strange decor adds to the ambiance. There is only 10 tables in the restaurant. The ones along each wall have a blue light emanating from under each table. The restaurant is very dark. The wait staff was very helpful as they have more specials than they have entrees' on the menu.

    Before your food comes out, a small sample plate of bread and butter comes out. A bit small.

    It was a very good experience.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered the Baked Aztec Chicken Experience. To my surprise, this comes with an appetizer that is not on the menu. It was half an Avocado, filled with sour cream and tops with a little salsa. Served with chips it was very good.

    I was told by the waitress that the Aztec Chicken was a little spicy. I like spicy but this was very spicy. So beware! It was good, served with rice, beans and warm avocado. Just too spicy.

    Emerald Restaurant: Don't go on festival weekend

    by Dabs Updated Nov 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant

    I guess it's to be expected that if you try any restaurant on a busier than normal day that the experience will be less than stellar and that was the case here. My in laws take everyone to this restaurant when they visit Jim Thorpe so I'm sure it's fine on normal weekends but we were there on the Fall Foliage Festival weekend. Although we got a table within a reasonable period of time, the host and the servers all seemed a bit flustered, to the point where you almost hated asking for a refill or some ketchup. They also didn't allow for any changes to menu items so my very fussy nephew couldn't order his normal grilled cheese sandwich and ended up eating ice cream for lunch.

    I did really like the interior of the restaurant, the Victorian dining room is lined with historic photos on the walls and beautiful tin ceilings.

    Favorite Dish: I tried the fish and chips which my sister in law said was typically very good, it was fine but nothing outstanding. I did enjoy the macaroni and cheese, made with real cheddar cheese, that we ordered for the fussy nephew from the kids menu.
