Group of 4 went for lunch on a rainy day! Everyone really enjoyed our meals. I ordered the grilled Mahi Mahi Sandwich and substituted for sweet potatoes fries; it was very good. Our server was nice and got all our special orders correct!

Everything was wonderful, the Greeter, our Server, the hummus/tapenade appetizer and our lunch orders!

Found it while in the area. I went at lunch so it was pretty quiet but damn was that service fast and on point! The beer is decent and the food was excellent. I would go back again if in the area. I can imagine during the warmer months that patio and tavern area is probably hoppin'.

We chose this restaurant for lunch based on its reviews on our first visit to this area in Pennsylvania. The hostess offered to seat us on the outside terrace which had a lovely setting, but we decided it was a little too cool for that and were nearly the only ones seated inside. I asked our server for a recommendation for a light lunch, and he gave me a few suggestions. I chose the crab salad with pita points. It was excellent! The crab salad had complexity, and even a little heat, without distracting from the crab itself. I rated it the best crab salad I've ever had. My husband's mahi fish sandwich was also excellent. We'll return if we're ever in the area again!

Not our first time visiting and definitely not our last. We love the Poconos and we love this little out of the way restaurant. Great Food, a nice pub in the basement and even an outdoor patio for cool autumn nights!

Really fresh well prepared food; beyond our expectations. Great wines by the glass; not cheap bar wine. They are known for craft beers so will do that next time. The service was perfect. Looking forward to dining on the beautiful deck. We knew this place as Mimi's Streamside and we loved Mimi's. We now love the next evolution of the place!

We were looking for a restaurant close to us since we were staying in river village with our children and found this cute comfy restaurant on line. Good choices and price for beer was good! I had the sausage sandwich as it got good reviews on line and it was tasty.

My husband and I were looking for a new place within a 20 min drive from our home and came onto Open Table to browse local places. SO glad we chose this pub. The food was great (pub food mainly, nothing too fancy, but delicious) and the beer was locally crafted and excellent! We will definitely be returning soon and often!

The decor is perfect for the Pocono Mts. The color of the green trees outside the large windows spilled onto the walls of this "gem" of a restaurant. Our waitress, Arline, was knowledgeable about menu items and even reminded us that we could still make "happy hour" prices for the next 10 minutes! The house merlot was good, as was my husband's beer from their brewery. Our food was delicious. Although the place was pretty full, the noise remained at a low level. We would surely visit again.

We wanted to try a new place for my wife's birthday and made a good choice. Great craft beers, food was excellent and a nice menu selction. Service was attentive and waiter was a great help in recommending menu items. Would come back again.

I took my son for his birthday along with my granddaughter. The Pretzel and Cheese and Wing appetizers were nothing really special. My son ordered the sirloin and it was slightly over cooked. He was the only one with an entree and was surprised it came with neither bread nor a salad. I had the crab cake sandwich which again was nothing special. The homemade chips were good. My granddaughter had the chicken quesadilla. She said it was a disappointment. I understand the place is a micro brewery, but charging $7.50 for a 10 oz beer is over the top for this venue. That is especially true when they charged $6.00 for a cocktail. I wouldn't drive 40 minutes to go there again.

Made our reservation - thank God as it was packed. This was our first time but can see why they were so busy. Food is right on target to go with their many brews. Drinks exceptionaly reasonable in price and nice pours. Will be back soon

Overall we enjoyed nearly all of our food. The burger, black bean burger, portabella sandwich, and vegetarian chili were all excellent. We did not care for the shrimp pasta al fredo.

I have lived in Marhall's Creek for almost 10 years and in regret not coming here much sooner. My girlfriend and I went for lunch and we were both pleasantly surprised. From the service to the food. The place was comfy and very classic looking. We will definitely come back, maybe dinner next time.

The waitress was very attentive....but I told her it was my friend's birthday and although the waitress did "nod her head yes" nothing special happened. I was expecting a few waiters or waitress to come clapping when the dessert was served - maybe a little candle or AT LEAST the waitress saying Happy Birthday.

This is a great place with several rooms and at least two outdoor dining locations. We were greeted promptly and made to feel very welcome. Our drinks were a little slow in arriving and the entrees came a little to close to the salads. But those were minor concerns. The food was excellent. My wife had grilled salmon which was very well prepared and attractively presented. She said it was very good. I had baked trout which just might have been the very best I have ever eaten. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. To top it off, when the bill came we received a ten percent discount on the food because the manager of the restaurant had noticed I was wearing a wrist band which identified me as a guest at a nearby resort!

The food was great. I highly recommend the apple tartlet. Nice relaxed atmosphere with an excellent menu of beers brewed right in the property. Overall an excellent experience.
