Poconos Five Top
- Rt 209 Snydersville, PA
Regulars -You'd never expect this to be THE
place. But, here they are - at one time or another
the elite of our society. The lawyers, the accountants,
the networked executives, the physicians, the
BEST of the land salesmen and their current dates.
In season, this is where you'll find the biggest
vacationing fish, too.
- It's a warm and fuzzy, insider kinda place.
A class act, courtesy of Andrew Moore, a veteran
of the food business in the Poconos. (Definition
of a Pocono food veteran - More than 10 years
in the business and still not broke) Getting a
reservation on a busy night means you've made
Best Seats in the House - Front room, center
floor for the want to be seen. A front room booth
for the discreet. (south side middle booth)
- Ten cloth napkins
- Andrew Moore first made his mark at the restaurant
at Foxmoor in Marshall's creek, where he fed some
of the most pretentious for a few holiday seasons.
The Stone Bar (and there is one) has a mysterious
history. Let's keep it that way.....
of Getting THE Table - There are a few of
them, but we've never sat there, so it's pretty
hard to figure out
Pete's Rt 209, Marshalls Creek, PA
(Alaska Pete's Named "Best Burger in the
Poconos 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2014 ")
The Regulars - Suits for lunch. Just about
everybody else for dinner, all voracious meat
eaters. Well .. we did spot a few lobsters. A
date spot. An informal anniversary spot. A birthday
party for the patriarch of the family spot. The
eastern Poconos money crowd, to be seen, kinda
spot. The "honey, let's go to the Poconos
and stop at Alaska Pete's for a steak, on the
way" kinda spot.
- Because it is kept like new.(clean updated and
fresh) Because there's nothing around like it.
A good, fresh salad bar. 'Cause there's nobody
with visible body piercings. AND 'cause of The
Best Steak around, cooked just right. With a real
decent seafood and pasta selection.
Best Seats in the House - To view the "Fun
Crowd" definitely in the Bar (The MoonDog
Saloon) good contemporary piano entertainment
usually on weekends. Either one of the corner
tables under the TV. (No, everybody's not looking
at you, they're watching CNN). The left rear one's
the best. And there's a private intimate corner
booth in the more formal dining room ---try to
- Eight cloth napkins.
- None, it's new. Unless you count the 15 years
the place was a burger joint before this wonderful,
of Getting THE Table - Get there early, just
sit at the bar and wait for the corner table above
or lie and tell the hostess that it's a "Special
Night". Aren't they all?
(Italian) - Rt 390, Cresco,
Regulars - Let's see, everyone from around
the Pocnos, but mostly the Buck Hill / Skytop
- It's the spot where power and money meet. It's
where the service and food are both top notch.
Best Seats in the House - Allll the way in
the back. In the back alcove last seats in the
house. No one walks by, close to the kitchen,
and a full view of the dining room.
- Best Italian - 7 Cloth Napkins
- Gracie the original is in the kitchen most nights.
She has been here cooking in the Poconos since
in Indian Head at the gap was made by God.
of Getting THE Table - You'll probably not
be real successful at this, 'cause the regular
boys won't give up their seats.
Bistro - Rt 447
Eagle Valley Corners
Regulars - Land barons, heart surgeons, the
occasional baseball player, lots of locals and
the Long Term Tourists.
- The food, the consistency, the waiters, the
best Caesar salad west of and since Elaine's (Bless
her soul) and east of The Glendale Grill, the
Best Seats in the House - At the front corner
table just behind host's podium on the right.
It's obvious that this is the "Power Seat".
- 8 Cloth Napkins.
- The Farda Family's friendly, formal and long
lasting restaurant is now a populare updated bistro
with a\direct access to the bowling alley. (no
noise). Run by the same family as the old Summit
Resort and Hideaway Hills Golf course.
of Getting THE Table - Reserve, reserve, reserve.
Otherwise, you'll end up center court.
Dimmick - Rt 209, Milford, PA-
Regulars - The tried and true Milford crowd.
Lawyers seeking shelter from the maddening masses.
A doctor or two. Real estate permeates the room.
- The food.
Best Seats in the House - The round table
to the left of the dining room door, as your enter
from the bar. In summer, the corner table on the
porch. (Thanks, Larry)
- Six cloth napkins.
- The Dimmick name is synonymous with Pike County.
Do the names Van Campen or dePue mean anything?
The Dimmick has a history of being the center
of attention in Milford. History continues to
of Getting THE Table - Oh, sure... be brave,
go ahead, call and ask for it.
