The Broadway Grille & Pub, Jim Thorpe’s newest restaurant and bar, has finally opened its doors to the public after a 6-month renovation. Located downtown at 24 Broadway, the front door is on the street, right next door to the Inn at Jim Thorpe.
The Drury family, the Inn’s owners, have given the restaurant and pub a complete facelift, infusing a hip, downtown ambiance into the space’s charming Victorian atmosphere.
Under the creative guidance of new General Manager Patrick Cleary, the kitchen features a big variety of reasonably-priced menu items that offer new twists on old standards, as well as delicious entrees, salads and sandwiches influenced by flavors from South American and Pan Asian cuisine.
Steaks, chops and seafood are char-grilled on the restaurant’s new hickory wood grill. On Friday and Saturday nights, the Grille offers a special late night menu with sandwiches, salads, soups and snacks available till midnight.
The Grille offers the biggest breakfast menu in town, including everything from fluffy buttermilk pancakes to spicy huevos rancheros, plus a huge lunch menu featuring entrees, salads, daily specials and delicious desserts.
An extensive wine list features vintages from around the world, available by the glass or bottle, plus a huge selection of beer, including many micro-brews and a special tap reserved for the Bethlehem BrewWorks’ popular suds. Dozens of specialty cocktails and martinis – from Brazilian Caipirinhas to espressotinis – fill out the list.
The Broadway Pub hosts Happy Hour from 4:30 – 6:30 on Friday and Saturdays, with live music happening both days from 8 – 11 pm.
