“Take it or leave it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

I've been coming to the Pocono Mountains since I was a child and have never stopped here until now.

We got there around 530 and got seated right away. The inside ambiance seemed a little rundown or outdated but most of the prices were pretty low which was good. Three of us got the garlic steak and my other friend got the shrimp parm. I asked for my steak to be medium well and when I cut it open it was RED. I don't like to complain and normally can just deal with things but upon cutting 2 more pieces of steak, I had to ask to have it cooked longer. When it came back it was cooked fine, but there was nothing special about the steak or the mashed potatoes. Don't get me wrong, it was good- it just didn't blow me away.

“Regular vacation customer”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

We have in the pass been very pleased with this spot. Food and price was just right and everything we tried we liked. However recently the food has been horable they sent us cook food that was still cold/frozen inside. We was very upset. But what made us even more mad, was when we told our waitor (new guy was great) about the food he gave it to the kitchen and they passed it back to him to bring back to us. HORRIBLE

“Good Food Good Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

We went here when we were vacationing at Split Rock Resort. We tried to go to Jubilee Restaurant but the line and wait times were outrageous because it was wing night. So we checked on Trip Advisor and found this place. The place is kind of run down but the menu, prices and service were good and the food was great! They have this really awesome salad bar which includes two soups that were delicious. They also have a decent children's menu as well. If you want a filling meal with generous portions that taste great and not too expensive, this is the place for you! :-)

“Good food, good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We were visiting family in the Poconos and decided to stop at a steakhouse for an early dinner. This place is nothing fancy but the atmosphere was relaxing and the food was pretty good. We all had ordered steaks and they were perfectly cooked. This is definitely a local favorite and we enjoyed ourselves.

“Good food. great prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Very quaint bar/restaurant. Food is good and prices are great. We had the "bar" steak special. Very nice atmosphere in the dining room area. We did not sit by the bar.
