Went to the River Room on a recent weekend getaway to the Poconos. Located in the Shawnee Inn, the view nad Shawnee craft beer was the best part of dinner. Had the flat iron steak, which was cook nicely, but had no flavor or seasoning what-so-ever. the rice was basically just rice, again no flavor or seasoning. Would definitely, not... More

We enjoyed a dinner as part of a package through the Shawnee Playhouse. We had reservations that were made when we bought our playhouse tickets. The River Room was clean and presentable. While called the river room, it did not have a view of the river. The staff was friendly and helpful. They did seem eager to make our stay... More

We stayed overnight to try the "glamping" experience which was very fun. The restaurant was ok. I would not go out of my way to eat here.

When you enter the room, you might be a little concerned as it is quite a bit dated inside. But the food was great. My wife said it was the best salmon she ever had.

Not a terrible experience, just had a higher expectation for a property like this.. Granted, we were the first diners of the evening I believe so maybe they come out of the gate slow. Worthy note; the kitchen was pushing out a wedding and 4 other reserved dinner events that day so they were super busy in the back of... More

Since we were staying at the Shawnee Inn decided to give this place a try for breakfast. It is buffet style and while not a huge fan of buffets for breakfast I can usually make it work. The servers were very friendly and attentive. The food- average at best. The potatoes were so salty there weren't edible. Everything else was... More

Really nice building and property, was looking forward to having dinner here on Mothers Day with my wife and family after having stayed in the area several times and golfed at the course. Service for the most part was ok, but they appeared to be both understaffed and unprepared. Tables were still being set up for dinner when we arrived,... More

Went for the first time and while the quality of the food was very good, the portions were tiny for the price and the service made you feel rushed, even though they were not busy. Will not go back
