I've been visiting this place on and off since it was still Sam Snead's tavern. I think since it changed the concept from attempting to be somewhat of a high end place in the Poconos to a more of a tavern to a local brewery...More

Went there for dinner because the hotel restaurant was closed. I enjoyed a well made cocktail and a Filet Mignon that was small but very good. My server, Desiree, was very friendly and proficient.

Went here for a later Sunday lunch and was the only ones there. The menu is ok with some decent choices but not overwhelming. We might try it again if in the area. Service was just fine!

Description
The Gem and Keystone Brewpub's menu features special bounty produced from the rich soil along the Delaware River from our own private Shawnee Island Farm™ (in season). Using local produce, all natural meats, PA farmstead cheeses and sustainable seafood, which match the Shawnee mission of reducing our carbon footprint and encouraging a healthier lifestyle. We use oak wood to fire our grill and offer vegetarian and gluten free menu options. We are a scratch kitchen, so our sauces, dressings and desserts are all made in house. Our restaurant is the official home of ShawneeCraft(R) artisan beers---handcrafted and brewed on the premises for your refreshment; we also have a reputable wine list along with a broad cocktail and martini menu. Conveniently located on the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort property, our outdoor dining is second to none with its breathtaking view of the Pocono Mountains. Reservations are recommended on the weekends.
