flavored. Our staff reviewer writes " I have lived here for
30 years and have traveled extensively, but have never found a more
fabulous hamburger feast than in our own backyard at Alaska Pete's
in Marshalls Creek. Besides the burgers, Alaska Pete's is also the
Poconos "Best Family Restaurant" with a great variety
of selections, reasonably priced, for the non burger lover. King
Crab Legs, Ribs, Pasta - something for everyone in the family. At
Alaska Pete's, All of the Top Choice Sirloin is freshly ground,
never frozen, and supplied by a "boutique" packing house and delivered
directly from Philadelphia. They specially season their burgers
with a Char-Crust seasoning that has a wonderful flavor with a distant
hint of garlic. The burgers are then put on a fresh, lightly
butter basted, hamburger roll and seared on the grill along the
burgers. This combination gives the best presentation, taste
and appreciation by their dedicated customers. They prepare
and sell so many burgers that customer is also guaranteed everything
to be fresh including the shredded lettuce, pickle, and tomato
slice that comes with the burger. Escorted by great french
fries, this is one burger that can't be beat.

3 home they won't last long anyway. 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

- Big Creek, located
in Kresgeville, Pennsylvania on the southern face of the Pocono escarpment
in the valley of Big Creek. The soils are a chimera of decomposing
glacial drift and local slate and shale. Like the natural history
of the area, their wines are unique and full of character. They strongly
believe that wine is food, and is at it's best on the dinner table.
Putting down the fork to pick up the glass allows pause for reflection,
conversation and rejuvenation of the palate.
Visit the vineyard
and winery in Kresgeville or the shop in historic Jim Thorpe. Wine
is one of those few pleasures of life that is endowed with a distinct
sense of place and presence. Enjoying a fine wine at a beautiful
table with family, without a sense of where it is from or who made
it is an incomplete experience.
