I cannot say enough about the waitstaff at this restaurant, they truly went above and beyond, especially Mark. Unfortunately, the food was not up to the same standard. The food lacked flavor and was not appetizing looking.

Another great dining experience at the Blakeslee Inn! We enjoy celebrating special occasions here. We love trying different appetizers each time. We love that the menu offers different special dishes seasonally. This time it was for my birthday. All the staff were pleasant and made my birthday special. The chef added a special candy birthday message to my creme brulee dessert. There was a short delay with receiving our entrees so we were given free extra cocktails fitting right in with our birthday celebration. Looking forward to going back soon!

My husband and I frequently visit the poconos and when we do, we have to have dinner at the Blakeslee Inn. The pasta is probably the best I have had since Italy! We haven't been to the pub yet but we're hoping to enjoy the pub at Blakeslee Inn soon :)

Meal was great. However, after waiting 39 minutes or more, my husband had to find a waiter to wait on us. They were totally not paying any attention to our table, we were ready to walk out.

Enjoyed the food, very nice staff. The dining room could use a little sprucing up, but everything else was great!

We had Thanksgiving dinner and loved the variety and quality of the buffet. Much better than expected, since the lobby and outside were a little rundown looking. Servers were attentive and it was an all around great experience.

Delicious food, great drinks, impeccable service! Ambiance would have also been 5 stars but there is a strange musty odor that may come from the building being older. Maybe possible flooding at some point? It should try to be addressed.

Was there several times in the past, and had a great meal every time. This time was not a good experience. We had a group of 8. Bar service was slow, waitress was nice but slow, my meal was completely wrong, and cold, my soup had nuts in it that tasted old. Everyone else said their food was good, but not as good as it has been in the past.
