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.

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.

Waitress was very nice but seemed very rushed although it was not busy. Salad bar was good, but the entrees (we got a NY strip, rack of ribs, and fried shrimp) were tasteless.

This is always have fun time. Every time we come here we always chat the night away with locals who are friendly and like to party. The bartender is a sweetie who rescues puppy mill dogs and pours a sweet drink too! Well done Amber!

Every single thing we laid our hands on was dirty! grity fork, spotty glasses, greasy buffet plates. No one staff member had one job, the person taking the money was also the person serving your food and bringing dirty dishes to the back. Our waitress was really sweet and she was the highlight of the entire meal. Food was bland... More

Stopped in last weekend and was surprised. The salad bar and soup bar was very good and prime rib was as well. Service very good and waitresses were very friendly. Would recommend.

My wife and I read some previous reviews and thought, "how bad could it be". Well, for the record, we are not picky eaters and have to rate this establishment low. I ordered a Cajun strip steak cooked medium. It came out med rare and the only thing Cajun about it was the smell. I was licking my chops when... More
