The history doesn’t end in Jim Thorpe—The Mansion House in Summit Hill has its own charm for history buffs as a former beer and whiskey bottling business that was rumored to be a speakeasy during the Prohibition era.
The bar and restaurant are located near the famous Lehigh Coal Mine Company, one of the first anthracite mines. This semi-formal dining spot features live music every Tuesday and Friday to compliment your contemporary American plates and expertly-crafted cocktails.
The Mansion House has both delicate entrees and hearty pub selections for a variety of moods. To start, try the scallop and corn puree, graze on the cheese and meat tray, a Mansion-made soup or salad, or nibble on jumbo crispy wings by the pound with your choice of 10 sauces.
Try a specialty crab cake or po’ boy sandwich with fresh-cut fries or try one of six unique burgers. For something a little richer, have a full-course entrée like chicken Baltimore, a grilled rib-eye, or pan seared yellowfin tuna served with a soup or salad, vegetable, homemade bread, and a multitude of sides. Save room for freshly-baked homemade desserts.
