My wife and I, along with another couple, enjoyed dinner in the River Room of the Shawnee Inn. The menu was more than adequate, the service attentive, the food very good. All of this in a classic Inn located in picturesque surroundings on the shore of the Delaware River. A really nice time in a really nice restaurant.

My husband and I dined here while staying at the horrible Shawnee Inn. My husband ordered a medium ribeye steak while I had the grilled pork chop with onion reduction. While my dish turns out good, my husband's medium steak was served well done instead. Who eats a 30-dollar well done steak??? They offered to make him another one but... More

We decided to dine out at the river room located on the main floor of The Shawnee Inn because we we're already tired from driving 4 hours to get to our destination and didn't want to go back out in the Main Street to find a restaurant. This was a very convienent location. It was the worst decision we ever... More

Came here with a bunch of friends on a Saturday night when we were up in the poconos area for the weekend. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but is somewhat hard to find for people not staying at the Inn. Everyone was nice and the service was average. The reason for the poor review was the mixed quality of... More

Recently returned from dinner at The River Inn in Shawnee Resort, and it was delicious. The chef prepared the meal just right. Not only was this done right, but the view from the glass enclosed restaurant was lovely, overlooking the Greens and the Mountains in the background. As this was Fall, the color was spectacular. The service was great and... More

The food here was very good. We chose to sit outdoors on the porch and the view was terrific as well. They also had live music which was very pleasant.

we loved the food, vegetarian options helped. the service was excellent but it was very quiet on a Thurs. night and a little awkward to be the only ones there.

Nice room overlooking the golf course. Breakfast was very good and very relaxing. Dinner was weird. The lighting in the room is far from "romantic" and the food was not impressive. Their bar is great though.

We ate at the River Room July 1. I had lamb Chops and my wife had a beef dish. The beef was supposed to be a tenderloin but it was stir fried and not as advertised on the menu. The lamb chops were in a delicious sauce but the chops were tough and I have gotten much better at Costco.... More

Driving home from NYC, we stopped at the inn for a few days and were very pleasantly surprised by the River Room. We ate outside on the veranda the first night and in the restaurant on the second. Both nights the food was amazing and the service was great! I found the portions too big to finish, but they were... More
