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.

We had lunch and dinner here recently. The place is kid-friendly, with a kids' menu but also plenty of suitable choices on the regular menu. We loved the choices of craft brews. The soft pretzels with warm cheddar ale dip were a great way to take the edge off while waiting for the main meal. I had the pot roast, which was really more of a beef stew, and my dinner companions enjoyed the pork chop special and a pasta dish. We would definitely return if in the area. (And ask for Arline as our server!)

We had friends and family in to see my daughter in the Shawnee Playhouse "A Christmas Peter Pan" - great play too - and had lunch both times at the Gem. The food was great and the service outstanding. The kettle chips with the cheese and bacon and ham are awesome.

This place is worth a stop in support of local small craft breweries. Their slogan - beer from here, food from near (the brewery was located a block away). Craft beer selection was limited (8 - 10 options). There are four 'reliables' - assume this means they are standards....and several seasonal or limited availability options.
- Overall, the food is average to good - chili was nicely spiced; the pretzel/beer cheese dip appetizer was very good.
- Some vegetarian choices (bean burger; hummus appetizer; salads)
- Restaurant upstairs; tavern with meal service downstairs.
- Your lift ticket gets you a FREE beer on that day (from the 'reliables' menu). Small beer (6 oz.) if you only order an appetizer; larger beer (10 oz.) if you order a meal.

Dinner prices were reasonable. Burgers were great and Shawnee Brewery Beer was delish! We have been to the GEM a few times and liked it very much... Kid friendly...
