Great location

Right off the highway for travelers and close by for locals. Breakfast always great to fill you up. Love to grab lunch from there or pizza on the way home.

I didn't expect a menu or the food to taste like real Italian food in the Poconos. But wow, they sure serve up real Italian dishes with the right taste and texture. Look, those who had pizza loved it, it was good, but nothing compares to New York Pizza.

Stopped in while at Lake Wallenpaupack. Restaurant was DIRTY, and little/no air conditioning on a hot July evening. Dirty table, dust on the mouldings around the walls,grease or something on wall, dirty ceiling tiles, a/c vents caked with dust and I was given a dirty "bread plate". There were bottles of mayonnaise on every table, did I mention it was... More

The wait staff are loud, rude and nasty. Just by hearing the way they scream at each other. The food on the other hand is easier to look at. But there is no flavor, you can tell the kitchen just sends out whatever even if it isn't cooked all the way. On top of it all the restaurant has a... More

I am actually one of those people that doesn't even really get excited about steak. I love hamburgers. But we often go to John's for their steak night, and they never disappoint. The steaks are great. The waitstaff, Jackie, Jackie, Laura and Ellena are excellent and very attentive and helpful. The cooks are great and the food is dependable. The... More

Every Friday we order a small pizza and a salad. The sauce is superb, the cheese melts in your mouth, the crust is delicious. The salad is always as fresh as if you bought it from the grocery store and made it yourself. Love the young ladies that man the cash register and take out. Beautiful pastries. Delicious muffins.

Don't let appearance fool you. Funky front w beer ads Dark interior. But clean clean restrooms. Generous fresh breakfast made to order. Local ladies enjoying hearty brunch. Regulars known by first name. Needed late morning meal on way north from FL to ME. Nice surprise.

Nothing special, but certainly on par with normal delivery pizza. The crust was a little on the chewy side.

We stopped into have Corned Beef and Cabbage on Scranton's Parade Day for St. Patrick, and the meal was excellent. The Irish Soda Bread was very good, and I usually make my own, so I know what I am talking about. The carrots and cabbage were delicious and the small red potatoes very good as well. The thinly sliced red... More
