I know the Hotel is old, but The River Room seems like a dingy place. We went there for the Breakfast Buffet which cost about $15 per person. Except for the person that prepares the omelettes, you can get about the same items at your Hampton Inn. The scrambled eggs didn't seem right. My guess is they used mike to... More

I had read the mixed reviews before, but my friend was celebrating a special event, and she wanted to go there for dinner. The prices were much higher than at the Brewpub, but that didn't make the dinners any better - rather the opposite. I loved my Mediterranean Salmon Salad ($18), and one friend got very lucky by picking a... More

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

Had to eat here as it was in the resort. But very expensive and flavorless. Service was decent. View was good. However food not worthwhile
