We stopped here on a Pocono Sunday drive and we were so glad we did. Staff is super friendly and the food is good. My husband really enjoyed his chili dog. We both got burgers. The tiny patties are cute and we still felt they were filling. One of the best chocolate malt shakes that I've had in a while... More

Best stop on Pocono Mountaintop for an after dinner treat. The Junction has been serving up sweets and ice cream for as long as I can remember. Limited menu but super family fun ! Milkshakes are excellent.

A must stop for dessert. They have a large variety of ice creams, both soft & hard. We all got medium soft on cones with jimmies. They were good size & tasted great.

Recently changed ownership and the size of their ice cream varies significantly depending on who serves you. We miss the "old" Junction, but we can't beat the location!

This is a "Must Stop" each time we are up the poconos. The people are friendly and prices are good. Soft serve and hand scooped are available.

Delicious soft ice cream, but sometimes the service can be a bit brusque. They handle crowds well which is good because there are often long lines in the summer.

The Junction is an old time ice cream joint. It reminds people of what the simpler life is. Soft serve twist ice cream cone is good. Typical walk up window for service. No real dining area, except for park benches in front of the establishment. It is right on the main road.

This place is not too bad - but its main draw is being just outside of the Lake Naomi development. Nothing too crazy, but if you just want a simple cone or shake, this is your place.

The Junction is the place to go for ice cream in Pocono Pines, but simply because it is the only place to go for ice cream in Pocono Pines. The service is mediocre and so is the product. There is nothing special about the ice cream - either hard or soft. It is more of a tradition for summering folks... More
