Years ago, I used to frequent Platz's and was always pleased with the food, service and value. Between 2011 and 2013 I returned twice. The first time, the service was slow and the waitress not pleasant. The food was just average and overpriced for the quality. I returned to give it another chance. I was just as disappointed for all... More

I had to meet a friend in the area so ended up here again. I have been here many times over the years, and the food is always the same "average". The bar food is slightly better then the meals, although bar food is not a way to rate a restaurant. The newer servers are nice, although, management and the... More

very friendly crew working here. Great service and great food. Busy on Friday and Saturday nights, so make a reservation. We just had our grand daughter here for her birthday. She likes it.

This restaurant is set in a picturesque old building off Rte 209 near Beltzville Lake. The large parking lot is usually full so you know that's a good sign. There a dining room, separate bar area and an outdoor patio. Staff are friendly, food is good and the prices decent. All in all ,another good example of a good Pocono... More

Food is like most chain restaurants like Fridays, Roadies, Friendly's, etc.. When it was Platz's the restaurant had its special dishes which made you want to return. Nothing on the menu is special or unique. Food we had was good and priced ok. Everything was ok, just not special! We were just glad Platz's didn't close.

Yep, that's what I said. "Two restaurants in one". Now, I will challenge you to simultaneously co-exist as two restaurants. Apparently, that is exactly what they are trying to do at "PJ Whelihan's at Platz's". Yes, you also read that correctly. They are now a PJ Whelihan's. Which, probably explains why they have not one; not two, but FOUR menus.... More

This was sold to a chain but little has changed. I rather eat at the bar and the bartender, same woman for a few years, was helpful and observant to needs. The service was excellent the food was good and the price was right.

Nice "in your backyard" kinda place to stop in for a drink at the bar, apps or a sandwich. During the summer, music out on the new deck Sunday afternoons. Friendly staff, good drink specials, mediocre food. Would not go out of my way to eat here, but great place to meet.

We used to frequent this restaurant often when we lived in the area and it was just called Platz's. We decided to take a ride today and stop for lunch. The good news is that they added an outdoor patio which is beautiful. The bad news is the quality of food is not the same since the've added PJ Whelahans... More

service is always great here. Love the crab cakes, salads and the shrimp. The bar is quaint to sit at and the outside deck is like sitting in your own back yard. There is entertainment on certain nights that make the restaurant a great place to go in the evening. This is not far from Beltsvill Lake so it is... More
