  • How to ignore reservations

    Booked this place on a Saturday night in the Pocono's because we figured that most places would be crowded and wanted to eat at a reasonable hours since we have young children. So even though we had an 8pm reservation, the hostess told us we could wait with the walk-ins. When we asked what the purpose was of having a reservation she ignored us and said we could eat outside where tables were available. Well that was another fiasco (old, dirty tables, no outside hostess or wait staff to seat us) so we basically left and had to fend for ourselves. I have no issue with busy restaurants who don't take reservations for Saturday nights but then why use a great service like Open Table and then ignore people's reservations.

    got sat at a table in a room where there was no one. no service so we were going to leave but were very hungry. we were walking out when we decided to sit at the bar. the bar tender was okay, but did not ask for refills on our drinks. sandwiches were horrible --- meat was thick and could not chew well. my boyfriend and I were hungry when we left. bad food and bad service...would never recommend this place!

    I just wanted to get something to eat and have a beer with my meal. I tried there special they were offering well let me tell you, how wonderful that meal was. I tried there new "Wild Boar hamburger", served the a sweet sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion. I really enjoyed the meal with french fries. I ordered a Guinness to accommodate this meal, this was a perfect pairing. I tried there other special, "Mexican Meatball Soup" this was new on the menu. This had wonderful aroma, mild spicy chili flavor which would remind you of a liquefied Taco, the meatball was perfect and plentiful in the soup. The only thing missing from this dish was the tortilla chip. they served the soup with cracker instead, more inline with a bowl of chili.

    Be it ski season or summer hiking this place answers the call. They have a wonderful selection of beers and the grub is good too. Since I was there this past week and it was hot a cold beer and a wonderful light salad filled the craving I had. My wife had a nice wrap and it was big so she was able to take half back to the hotel and have us have a late night snack. Also has some game rooms for pool and skee ball and knock hockey ect. I will wish you enjoy the place as we did during our mini vacation.

    Typical bar, with typical bar food. French dip was extremely dry, would not get again. Wings were good but asked for half BBQ honey, half mild and they mixed them- didn't expect that! Overall if your looking for bar food it's as you would expect- worth the drive into town if you want to eat a little more upscale.

    We reserved on open table and when we got there no table. Hostess kept trying to make us sit by the bar at a high top when we wanted a booth. When we did get seated it was next to a large group of rowdy profane men. It took forever to get drinks or order taken; food was cold when it did come. My crab cake was old and tasteless...

    I was up for the weekend, wasn't to impressed with the resort food, looked on O.T. and up popped the Brewery. The food was good and plentiful. The place was cool for a hangoutbor meet up and the wait staff was on point. When I'm in the area I'll be stopping through for sure. Thanks

    We have found that dining out in the Poconos is not a foodie's delight. No place is great, or even very good. Pocono Brewing Company is the best we've found. It is certainly not especially interesting food, but it is consistent. Don't expect more than decent pub food and you won't be disappointed. The wait staff, however, have almost always been friendly.

    This was a good choice. Noise really carries so it is not a romantic place to eat. It is kid friendly with games for the kids to play while waiting for food to come. We were there for lunch and our sandwiches were REALLY GOOD and hot! Just the way I like it.

    The service was incredibly slow even when not crowded and despite the fact that it was less than 40 degrees outside, the heat did not appear to be on in the dining area.
