Stopped in after a day of skiing. Thought if we went early it would be a nice place to get a quick bite to eat. Wow!!! We were wrong. The reviews that say it's a great place to eat were completely misleading. It's a bar! Period! Not family friendly! This should be listed as a bar and that's it! Ordered... More

Cute, old country restaurant in the Pocono mountains of PA. Old building but modernized and clean. There were only 2 other tables with diners when we arrived on a Tuesday night and no one came during our stay. We both ordered the garlic mussels as appetizers and they were excellent.

Found this place in July 2015 and the food was awesome then. Recently went back and really fell in love with the food. The place is clean as a whistle. And the owners are so nice and friendly. The food was better than 4 star restaurants that I have eaten at. So anyone traveling through should stop and eat. Luv... More

I thought the place was closed down, only to find out its one of the most unique, nicely decorated, friendliest places to hang out and have a drink. The food is phenomenal, and the place is immaculately clean.

I am in the area once a month for business and I am so glad I found this place. The food is excellent and service is great. The building is beautiful and very clean. There is nothing in the area that compares. Hoping to have my next business meeting here.

I hear the food is awesome, 'though I never tried anything other than steaks, which; of course, were better than decent. I wish they'd re-open after their flooding problem. I miss their drinks and food! Better than decnt bartenders, great crowd! From what I hear, the seafood is duper great.
