    The wife and I had brunch at Blakeslee Inn this past Sunday and it was fantastic! My Bloody Mary was wonderful, spicy tasty. The buffet had flank steak, omelets, and halibut with coconut cream sauce. Oriental beef tips were just right. The flank steak was rare and very good. You shouldn’t go away hungry from this buffet. I always finish my meal with a fruit crepe. Really hits the spot. Mike, Amanda our server and the rest should be proud of the way they care for their customers. They do a wonderful job. Chef Mullin, you have a great crew too. Your sous chef did a fantastic job Sunday, you should be proud. We look forward to our next visit.

    Another wonderful dining experience at The Blakeslee Inn. The staff made my husband's birthday celebration a special one. Excellent food-I had the seafood fra diavlo' my husband the lamb. We were welcomed to have our "favorite table" listed in the restaurant reservation records for future dining. The bartenders and waitstaff don't bat an eye when we order Manhattans and Old Fashioneds. Since we're not from that age era, we often feel staff/bartenders wonder why....

    Kudos to Bruce and the rest of the wait staff for a great dining experience. Bravo Chef Mullin, the food was outstanding! The wife started with a Caesar salad which we think is one of the best salads anywhere. I had the grilled romaine and pineapple salad. Really good with mango and pistachios. The wife then had the Seafood Fra Diavolo. She loved this devilish spicy seafood melody. The clams, scallops, shrimp and calamari were cooked just right, as was her Linguini. I had the Buffalo ribeye special, and it was special. Cooked rare just like I like it. The fried green tomatoes were right out of the south. Can’t forget dessert. The deconstructed cannoli was spot on and Deb’s sampler had three fantastic selections.

    The wife and I visited the Blakeslee Inn for Sunday Brunch last weekend. First the omelet was outstanding. I am not an egg person but this was done as close to perfect an omelet as I’ve had. Soft and creamy on the inside with wonderful fillings. The mac and cheese was delicious. The roast beef carving was fantastic. My wife loved the cold lobster tails. Chef Mullin and his crew are doing a great job. We were allowed a taste of the salad special and it was worth the taste. Fresh Mozzarella, pickled lychee, micro greens, mint, simply delicious. I’d order it again if it’s on the menu. Michael, Amanda and the others made our brunch a wonderful event. We start vacation later this month and will visit the Inn again for sure.

  • Surprise find in the poconos
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/24/2014
    Surprising to find avante-garde cuisine in the Poconos; great food, but not as seasonal or as local as I have come to expect. Beer list was poorly organized and featured a dozen varieties of light lager (Coors, Labatt, Miller, etc.), some imports, and a few craft brews. We chose this restaurant because it claimed to have "microbrews", but the beer list itself was another story. That said, this was an unexpectedly great restaurant. The food was excellent, even if the dining room was a bit too dark and the beer list didn't quite meet expectations.

    We enjoyed another meal at Blakeslee Inn. My cocktail was delectable and Bruce's choice of beer for my wife was right on. I had the baby spinach and berry salad, great dressing. My wife had the cold crab tower and that was great. She let me have a small taste and it was delicious. She had the scallop special. Four huge diver scallops cooked to perfection. Accompanied by a seaweed salad it was a fantastic dish. I chose the chicken breast stuffed with cheese, roma tomatoes was great. The servicer Bruce was at his best. Can't say too much about the service. Thanks Mike and crew for a wonderful time

    The menu is good and food is well prepared. We were a large group. The fish dishes were excellent. The pork was a bit too dry and did have the rich flavors I expected from the description (e.g. Szechuan peppers). The egg plant was excellent as a vegetarian choice. The wine list is good but not outstanding.

He is constantly involved thru out the entire restaurant. Jaret our server is probably the most attentive & knowledgeable server we have ever encounted in all of Pennsylvania. Our compliments to the chef as always. Blakeslee has finally got a perfect dining experience that no one should miss out on.

    Hate to say it but I was expecting a lot more. After so many glowing reviews I expected a true gem hidden in Blakeslee. Not sure if the usual chef was off that night but none of our dishes were "awesome", and some were not really edible. From overcooked calamari to Lobster and coconut bisque that had pollock strips in it (no lobster) covered with almost inedible "crispy kale" to a pasta aglia e olio that had no garlic and was overwhelmed with olive oil (it was hastily made after they brought my daughter bisque instead of the pasta she ordered), it was disappointing throughout. We didn't risk dessert. The wine was delivered but not served. Ever. Lackluster service, poor meal preparation, and way too expensive. Not sure I'd risk it again.

    We dined here on a Sunday night when it wasn't very busy BUT what a wonderful experience ! We have been in this area MANY times and never stopped in to see what it was all about. To bad for us ! The service was as good as anywhere we have eaten in New York . The food was beyond good as was the wine list and choice of dessert . The interesting aspect of this restaurant was that it is three places in one with two distinct menus in one area and a pub type area and menu in another. Very well done . All in all a diamond in the rough and one that anyone living locally or near by should take advantage of !

    Brunch here has many selections; made to order crepes and omelettes, carving board. When we were there the carving board was prime rib, which was a little to rare for me, but the chef took care of that!! And it was delicious!! Steamed crab legs, lobster tails--everything was just wonderful. Then there was the dessert selection....couldn't make up my mind---but be sure you leave room!!!

    This was the first time my wife & I ate here. It is by far one of the best restaurants we have found in the Poconos in 14 years. Three great menus to choose from depending on your appetite & what your in the mood for. We picked something from all 3 so to experience all we could in 1 seating. Everything was amazing. To compliment the food was the excellent service from Bruce our waiter & our bus girl. To top the service part of it off was Mike the manager coming over, introducing himself & making sure all was good. I thank all for the excellent service & the chef & kitchen staff for the amazing dishes they put out. Don't miss out on the lamb lollipops, pork chop or pasta dishes. Thank you Blakeslee Inn. You will be seeing us often.

    Want to satisfy family or guests with varied food preferences? Visit the Blakeslee Inn for Sunday brunch. A variety of meat, fish and seafood, omelettes, waffles and crepes made at your request, along with many hot and cold sides, fresh fruit and desserts all served buffet style in a roomy (if rather dark) dining area. The staff is friendly and attentive, the food offerings constantly replenished. Those with big omnivorous appetites will find the $37+ per person cost a bargain----those with particular tastes and modest hunger may feel overcharged. While the buffet is nicely presented and quality is above the usual buffet chains, not quite gourmet fare, and happily without the formality and attitude that accompanies haute cuisine.

    Congratulations Blakeslee Inn on another fantastic Easter Brunch. Chef Mullin and his enthusiastic crew has done another great job of preparing a wonderful meal. I understand you and your crew were up rather late Saturday night prepping, well it was worth the hard work. The whole family enjoyed the brunch. The fish was great. Deb loved the poached fish and the catfish. I thought the cold seafood was delightful. The lamb and ham were simply luscious, couldn’t be better. Same for the veggies and salad. We have come to expect great service; Mike, Bruce and the rest of the front of the house crew did not disappoint us. Thank You!! We have our reservations for Mother’s Day, so see you soon.

    Had brunch at the Inn today. Everything was luscious. The Haddock was delicious, so were the clams. Deb & I loved the potato salad. (Wish Chef Mullin would share the recipe) The flank steak was great, rare just the way I like it. The infused Bloody Mary is terrific. Very smooth and peppery with the horseradish. If you like Bloody Mary you have to try them. Great job to all. See you all Easter, including Bruce and Mike we missed them today.

    The Inn does 2 wine dinners a year and we try not to miss either of them. It is near our vacation home so we dine there several times a year. It is the best restaurant in miles. We have never had a poor meal. Now that you can select from any of their 3 menus it adds to the pleasure. I like single malt scotches and this is the only location in that area that has any selection.

    Incredible meal on Saturday night. We decided on dinner here because of the other reviews that were posted, it was well worth the visit. * Unless you know the restaurant is there, you will drive right by the motel. * The 'foyer' when you first walk in, does look like a funeral home. * The food is top notch - I had the scallop/pork belly Surf-n-Turf - my wife had the salmon * The prices were a little high - but I didnt mind, as both the service and quality of the food were as good as any in NY or Philly We definitely did not expect such a good dinner in the Poconos We will be back

    Celebrated St. Patty’s Day at the Blakeslee Inn Sunday. Great time. The Magic martini was superb. Vanilla vodka, Baily’s Irish Cream and cream de Mint. Ummmmm. We ate fried oysters, smoked salmon fried potato pancakes were all delicious. My shepherd’s pie and the wife’s corned beef and cabbage egg rolls were outstanding. The Baily’s Crem Brule was fantastic. Service as usual was on point. We had a wonderful meal. Thank You.

    Congratulations Blakeslee Inn, another wonderful Brunch. The cod was great as was the flank steak. Don’t know where chef Mullin gets the fruit but I wish I could get it, it’s delicious. Besides the great food the service is first class. Ben and all the service staff attend to your every need. Special thanks to Michael and Chris for the wonderful food. By the way the Bloody Mary was the best.
