Blakeslee Inn Says: "Fancy dining and Pub all in one. Creative Menu from a fantastic Chef.  A Pocono Mattioli family tradition."
If you don't know about it you probably wont stop.  The Blakeslee Inn appears to be just a hotel when you look from the street but inside it features a great restaurant and pub featuring three distinctly different menus. From Italian to french to pub fare with a twist it wont disappoint. Duck Poutine?  Yes Yes and Yes.  The Lobster Ravioli was devine.  This place has a rich history with Pocono and Mattioli family!
