    We had a very nice anniversary dinner at the Powerhouse. There was plenty of seating available and we had a table with a view outside. The server was right on top of everything and had plenty of recommendations to help us with our choices. The food was prepared exactly as ordered and served in a timely manner. Everything tasted wonderful and there was plenty of it. Cocktails and wine recommendations were right on and complemented the food selections very well. We really enjoyed our evening and will be back again.

    The consistency we’ve come to expect! Service is top notch; thank you, Jesse, for a great experience! When you choose to dine out these days expectations are higher and the Powerhouse management & staff set the bar high.

    This place was really cool to check out while we were staying in the Poconos! The building is really neat and our server Brian was excellent. There was a bit of a wait for the food, but it was worth it! Everything including the truffle fries was super tasty.

    The food was awful. Looked more like petite sirloin than petite filet. The rice tasted like it was out of a bag. And the service was slow. They ran out of the can beer after two. And was way overpriced for the poor quality.

    My husband ordered Prime Rib. Expensive. It was tough! My salmon was very good but on a bed of lemon orzo that did not taste good. One bite and I did not finish the orzo. Dessert was dry and did not taste good. Everything was expensive and ala carte so there is not a lot of food. For me it was just the salmon and the orzo. I splurged and ordered a dessert. Very disappointed. HOWEVER, our waiter was excellent!! He is a long time wait staff at the Powerhouse and is very good!

    Our server Brian was friendly but a bit slow on service. My husband ordered the Black Angus Arancini and was very disappointed in it. The description on the menu is a bit misleading. He was expecting "Black Angus Filet Tips"; not ground up pieces of meat and not presented almost as a meatball. He took one bite and that was it. The very full plate was at the end of the table and neither the manager nor Brian asked if anything was wrong. I understand it was very busy but disappointed in the lack of detail. We were also annoyed by the "Service Charge" added to the bill prior to our paying with a credit card. I think it should be stated on the bill. What if we paid cash? Would you take the charge off the bill or does the server keep that money?Granted, it was only about $10.00 but the point is it should be pointed out somewhere prior to the bill being put on the table.

    The linguine and clams had 0 flavor. It was noodles and water basically. The truffle goat cheese ravioli had hardly any in the entre and was hardly stuffed. Certainly not worth what was charged. The oysters and cocktails were very good though. And our waitress, Karen was nice and came back to check on us frequently
