Chocoholic dinners are always
Chocoholic dinners are always a treat. The menu shows great creativity, and is a gastronomic delight! Though entree portions are quite small........we do not leave hungry!

This is the second time I
This is the second time I have been to the Blakeslee Inn. This was the Chocoholic Frolic. Their chef and pastry chef are amazing!! The menu was creative and each course blended the flavors perfectly! The entire staff are second to none. I highly recommend the Blakeslee Inn!

Promised myself I’d come back
Promised myself I’d come back for the Pasta and was not disappointed. I ordered the fettuccini Alfredo, it was marvelous. I’ve never had one that was so good. I also tried Caeser salad, lightly dressed absolutely delicious. One of the best I’ve ever had! Both dishes are not to be missed.
My better half had the Monk fish with squid ink pasta, different and delicious and another that should not be missed. By the way Chef Mullen makes all his own pasta in house.
And as always the service was smart, sophisticated and attentive.

This restaurant is a especially a gem in the Poconos but it would standout even in New York City and Philadelphia. The service and presentation are elegant. The food is fantastic. The menu changes often enough that there are always several new things to try. It is worth a trip to the Poconos just to try this restaurant.

After countless meals of typical fare in the Poconos (pizza, sandwiches, anything fried), it was a pleasant surprise to find the Blakeslee Inn. While the decor screams Catskills circa 1970, it is VERY well maintained. There's a nice variety on the menu, and the service is outstanding. Great for a nice dinner out, and they have a fabulous Sunday brunch. While the prices may be a bit high by Pocono-area standards, they aren't unreasonable by any means for everything that the Blakeslee Inn has to offer.

Hiddem Gem in the Pocono's
We love the creative way the chef puts his "Classic" Menu together. While sipping Watermelon and Lemon Chambord Martini's, we started with Spicy scewered shrimp and Creamy Polenta. A crunchy squared of polenta with a creamy middle sitting on the most delicious pile mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and fresh grilled tomatoes. A dish that is eyeball rollingly good. My partner got the better entree with the special grilled Red Snapper: cooked to perfection. My ahi tuna dish was good, just not excellent . However the mango fried rice hit that hmmm note in a foodies' soul. Special desserts for that night were white chocolate ravioli's stuffed with raspberry dark chocolate, and chocolate bread pudding. Spectacular.

We had dinner from the Pub menu and the food was great. Just the right amount if you don't want a big meal, just a bit and a few drinks. My wife had the stuffed meatballs and loved them. I had the steak frites, I'd like the recipe for the frites, they were different and fantastic. Our Caesar salad was just right.
Chef Mullin does an excellent job in the kitchen and our server Bruce is tops in our opinion. O- the desserts were mouth watering.

great as always
Just love that the Blakeslee is in my backyard. Staff is friendly and attentive but not overly so. Food is AWESOME! Chef Chris is creative and imaginative. Can't wait to go back! Thanks to Mike for the awesome wine recommendation too.

Brunch with friends

Nice relaxed setting , we ate at the BI Pub. Several simple combos to choose from( I had steak frittes and my wife had seafood mixed tray). I should have specified low sodium with my order otherwise the meal was just right and the price is also very good.

This is our favorite restaurant in the Poconos! Sea Bass is by far the best. When I have Sea Bass at other restaurants it always gets compared to the Blakeslee Inn, and never comes close.
8/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was great again. My ahi Tuna was outstanding, so was the pineapple rice. The wife's Sweet Corn & Spinach Linguini tasted great. Bruce, our server knows how to make us feel like serving us is his top goal. All the service is top drawer at the Inn.
The Cosmos are fantastic, love them.
Our favorite night out.
With three different menu's you can satisfy any hunger.

Love the food
As usual the food and service are fantastic at BLI. Best dinner we've had since we dined there the last time. Looking forward to tasting the fall menu soon.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu has many wonderful items and is always evolving. A great dining experience.

Don't be fooled by the vintage 50's motel attached. The food and service here are outstanding. We went on early on a Thursday night and there were only a few other diners. The place filled up some as the evening progressed, but it was never full. I imagine it's a little more crowded on the weekends. I had the pork mignon appetizer. Tamarind glazed grilled pork with a pineapple slaw. It was amazing. Dinner entrée was the Ahi tuna. Let's just say the Poconos are not known for fresh salt water fish, however, the tuna was fresh, delicious and perfectly cooked. The mango tea glaze gave the tuna a delicate, exotic flavor profile. I swapped what was left (not much) with my husband, who had the NZ lamb. Delicious. Cappucinos to finish. Excellent!

Great food and service
We had a great meal and service. My steak was great and done right. It was pricey but very enjoyable
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice to have a place to go and not have to have a full and expensive menu
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here is fantastic! Pricey, but well worth every bite! The interior is dated, but the staff is fantastic and make up for the decor. Probably not too kid-friendly based on the menu. Definitely a great place for a romantic dinner for two! Did I mention the food is great!!!!!!!!!!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I think you are a little pricey.the food was good but the price was a little high for the amount of food you get.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pricey but excellent food and service. A great place locally to visit for a special occassion.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great meal. We both had the seared scallops and they were fantastic. Chef Chris knows his seafood. Cooked to perfection, not over cooked as you get at too many places. Perfect !!!
My wife's steak was rare just like she wanted it. So was my buffalo. Lucky me I got the last one. I really liked the sweet potato puree was very good. Dessert, the blue berry cobbler was just right, not too sweet just right.
Now I can't wait for the fall menu.
Our servers Bruce and Mike are at the top of their game, great job.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous, food, service, and menu choices. Great to find an upscale place near our home in the Poconos.
We all enjoyed Blakeslee Inn. Will dine here again and will recommend it to friends.

An unexpected gem
We had driven past and didn't think it was anything more than an old motel. We tried it after seeing the reviews. While it was a bit pricy, it was definitely worth it. The spinach salad and the butternut squash and apple soup, stuffed chicken and filet mignon were all very good. The beef and chicken were cooked slightly more than I think they should have been but they were still very tasty. The complimentary cherry sorbet served between our appetizers and entrées was the best sorbet I've had. The atmosphere was quiet which is unusual these days. I would definitely recommend this place.

Great new menu
The wife and I were up to the Inn on Saturday to try the new fall menu, we were not disappointed. The first plate was the lobster pot pie. Succulent pieces of lobster and veggies covered in a puff pastry crust in a perfect sauce. Enough to share.
My wife loved the weekend special “Red Beet Fettuccini & Pulled Pork the pasta, al dent with a combination of luscious ingredients. I had the “Cola Braised Pork Shank” the pork was fork tender and the depth of flavor is wow. The risotto was perfect.
The service impeccable. Thank you for a great experience.

The food is made fresh on the premises and is worth the money - our waiter was great and service was very professional from beginning to end - can't wait to go back!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food in the poconos
This was my second visit to Blakeslee Inn and it remains a great choice for fine dining in the Poconos. The venison special and the butternut squash soup were winners. The first time I went there was someone playing the piano and that helped the ambiance significantly. This time the atmosphere was quite drab. That being said my return visit was strictly based on the food and to me that's the most important.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always the brunch was fantastic at the Inn. Now they have also redecorated and they did a great job.. Whoever the designer is they should receive a big hand for the work. All of the staff at the Inn did a great job remoldeling a real food gem. We were at the grand reopening and it was wonderful. service and food was par excellence. Mike should give lessons to other restaurants in the area.

Fine Food, Great Atmosphere
We would definitely recommended The Blakeslee Inn to anyone. The food is fabulous, the staff and managers are very nice, personal and accommodating. The newly renovated dining room has a great flare to it. Would rate this restaurant as a 5 star without a doubt. Dennis & Pauline
