Tony Stella's encore is perfectly named for the experience you will be receiving while dinning here.

Wether I doing business in town, or have had friends here for personal leisure (typically whitewater rafting) anytime I want to wow them- having a meal here is the "encore" to all their days.

Every time I have been at this location I have been personally greeted warmly by Tony Stella himself. He remembered details of certain members of our party from previous visits ( such as names, interests and even some drink orders).

Don't be confused his establishment is much more than just him- his staff is also top notch with their attention to detail. In both situations while personally dinning here and also when there for business in our private suite, the staff was there before we realized we had a request. There was always a full glass, and someone to answer questions. Unlike other establishments they are not busy pushing you through a seat- they are there to make you relax & enjoy.

Much like the rest of Jim Thrope, the Albright rich in history- and located in the heart of broadway. The interior of this establishment has been preserved and the atmosphere is well set. Be sure to ask about the history while there.

The menu is a well balance of meal selections, but never the less offers much more than your typical pub food which is what much of what the rest of Jim Thorpe offers. When you come here you should expect to quick service however i encourage you to slow down and enjoy the evening with your friends & family. Some of my favorite menu items was his rack of Lamb. It was very tender and made to perfection.

For deserts he always is rotating many items for my girlfriend & guests however for me its about the liquid desert.

Encores bar has a well stocked selection of hand picked liquor, beers, and wine from around the world. Something not to pass up is they are also the only establishment to offer Absinth experience anywhere in the area.

Don't just eat a meal - Have an experience.

My husband and I were looking for a nice place to have our first date as a married couple. We happened to stumble upon Encore on the internet, and couldn't have made a better choice! The restaurant is located right in the heart of Jim Thorpe in a beautiful old building. From the moment we walked through the doors, we knew it was going to be a good night. The staff was amazing and very friendly. Tony is extremely hands on. You can tell that he absolutely loves what he does and puts his heart and soul into this restaurant. The bread and garlic romano dip was delicious (so much so that Tony even gave us a quick tip on how to make it...we'll definitely have to try it at home). I ordered one of the specials, which consisted of crab meat rolled in salmon, and my husband had lobster stuffed filet. Both were amazing. Then we had the bananas foster for dessert. Tony flambéed it table side. It was incredible. Needless to say we ate every last bit of food we were served. There's not much else we can say except that the food is delicious and the staff is exceptional. You will definitely feel right at home at Encore!

Phenomenal experience. Everything from the service to the food (seafood cooked to perfection) and beautiful music my husband and I were delighted with our dinner and evening at Encore. Tony Stella is truly a wonderful host and owner. Time stands still and you feel like you are the only customer. We will be back!!

Jim Thorpe is a great place to visit and eating at Encore has made it even better. Six of us settled into the Absinthe Bar and had a difficult time deciding what to have as the menu had many tempting dishes. The specials of a Bloody Mary grilled cheese or a shrimp based soup were excellent choices. My husband was hungry for pasta with clams and though not on the menu, Tony said no problem and it was his best meal of the weekend. Our waitress was cheerful and helpful which helped make this a wonderful dining experience. We will be returning, just not soon enough.
