Mamma Maria's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By D S

Family run local restaurant is a local gem. Comfortable seating for dinner even if few others are there. Most locals take food to-go for that great thin crust pizza. We like the antipasto to-go also. Gyros are fresh and yummy.

Dunkin' Donuts

Reviewed By Chris W - Tannersville, Pennsylvania

I go here occasionally with a friend for coffee and donuts. Recently, our visits have been less than pleasant. Today, none of the tables had been wiped down, even though there was no one else in the place. The loud Hip-Hop musoc is definitely suitable to a "general clientele". Is the manager tone deaf?
Also, one of the workers began to empty trash cans inside and suddenly stopped to go do something else. Also, some paper had spilled out onto the floor, so there it all sat for the next 5 minutes... not very appetizing. When we left, about 15 minutes later, none of the tables had yet been cleaned off and wiped down, Customers should not have to come in and ask for a table to be cleaned off.

Hidden from sight from the main drag, this is an unadorned gem of a restaurant with kind and gracious waitresses.
“Standing room only” on a weekend waiting for a table the first time I was there, solo, I sat at the small, busy counter bar as an alternative to waiting for seating in this relatively small restaurant with tables and booths. Late, and during the week, with my partner, seating was more readily available.
The food is freshly and quickly prepared in generous and filling proportions. Loved the sweet plantains.

Pocono Cheesecake Factory

In 1984, Priscilla Moore, began making cheesecakes in her home near the village of Canadensis in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. The idea dawned on her to convince local chef's at resorts and restaurants to try her product. And a Business was born! After a few months a retail outlet opened on route 390 in Mountainhome, Pa. In just one year the overwhelming response was so much that they decided to expand to the current location on route 611 in Swiftwater. By 1994 she added a 2,400 square foot warehouse and more than doubled the original size of the baking and retail space.The Pocono Cheesecake Factory became one of the Must Try attractions in the Poconos. In 2007, Priscilla decided to ask her great Friends Al and Carole Johnson to carry on the tradition of uncompromising Quality and Freshness, supporting local farms sourcing our milk and cheese, and a customer experience that created the success to begin with.

I guess the good taste is the best rating, but the store appears unkempt and there is no indoor seating to sample your sweets there. Road construction at the present time causes traffic problems in the area, this too will pass. Wish they gave you the fruit topping in a separate container, then you could put it on the cheesecake when you eat it.

I know everyone gives this place glowing reviews, but I beg to differ. They have high end prices with a commonplace setting. No table clothes, glasses turned upside down right on the bare table, it's very loud, there was a spill over from happy hour, plus several unhappy children...hardly a place for a romantic dinner for two. The waitress did not anticipate our needs. The food was good (braised short ribs and crab cake) but not with the price tag, imo. I'm not sure if there is a quiet section in the place, but I would recommend you ask for one.

The Village Malt Shoppe

The Casino Theatre and Village Malt Shoppe is a family-owned, family-oriented local landmark for more than 40 years. We have two movie theaters showing first-run films with digital projection and sound, including 3-D. We have great homemade food and an old-fashioned ice cream parlor serving more than 60 flavors of Hershey's Ice Cream, and are open for lunch and dinner every day. Family game room and mini golf, too.

My wife and I wanted to watch a movie. Instead of going to just any regular movie theater we found this place. It has two movie theaters inside but don't be fooled by the outside its actually a large theater capable of sitting a large number of people. However the inside shop is rather small. They had a children's birthday party inside so half the store was NOT available. Waited in line for popcorn for about 20 minutes. You can order food and they will deliver it inside the movie theater. However it can be distracting as they serve the food 30 minutes into the movie. Overall its a fun place to visit with the kids and watch a kid movie. Tickets were $7.50 per adult which wasn't bad at all. We had popcorn and a drink with some cotton candy. Give it a shot.

This was a tasty twist on the standard mojito, and it was served in a tall hurricane-style glass. The bartender, Bridgette, was very helpful and friendly.

This is always our first stop on our Pocono weekends with friends. We always reserve the same table and arrive when the open. The staff usually laughs when we move the Rooster Decoration and place it in the center of our table. He is always...MoreThanks for the great review, we always enjoy a group that knows how to have a good time while enjoying a great meal at our restaurant. We hope to serve you all for many years to come. Thanks Rob Owner

We go here often from the kick-off day to the day it closes. We enjoy the variety of flavors of ice they offer and love that they have a kiddie size for smaller servings. The one thing I wish was that they would also offer more of a variety of custard flavors.

This is the send time I stop atStore #341500. Last week I stopped for a donut and it was stale. This time there was no filling inside. I commented and was given two more and they also had no filling. I guess they are lacking Q&A on their products. However, I did get a good cup of coffee. If Dunkin reads this may be they will do something. Can't say enjoy this time. Buyer beware!
