Welcome to Hunter’s Lodge!

Hunters Lodge was built before the turn of the century as a railroad depot and then transformed into a cannery. The only method of getting to the site was by railroad with a train car turnaround right in the center of the Green Lawn that still exists today. The railroad tracks still run in front of the Hunters Lodge building but have been paved over. They still remain below the pavement. The Motel was the Tomato Cannery for the area and then was transformed in the late 1930s as a motel.

The restaurant was frequented often by Babe Ruth, Kirk Douglas, Frank Sinatra, Frankie Valli, Bobbie Valli, and Jackie Gleason. Many of the performers that went to the Poconos to perform finished their evening at Hunters Lodge dining room and then stayed at the motel to avoid the crowds and fans that they just performed in front of. Also the cast and crew for the movie Friday the 13th, stayed at Hunters Lodge and dined in the dining room speaking of their next day’s set plans for the movie which was filmed at camp Nobebosco in Blairstown. A recent movie fan film for Friday the 13th sequel was filmed there as well in 2018 and 2019 and will be debuting the premier showing in 2021 at Hunters Lodge.

The restaurant serves made-from-scratch home-cooked meals with fresh ingredients steaks, seafood and Black Angus hamburgers among many of the other popular dishes between the food and the history Hunters Lodge is known by the locals as legendary.

Had a great meal with my wife, met with a hello at the door. Several great servers that were very attentive. Kudos to NICKY AND VICKY, awesome and pleasant service. Bacon wrapped scallops were perfect. Plenty of food to fill an appetite. Thanks again, hope to see you soon.

More Than Exceptional!

Everything is more than exceptional. Haven’t had a bad meal. Pricing is better than some corporate steak house and the quality is above and beyond. Definitely recommend 10/10

You wouldn’t be able to tell from the outside but this place is a gem. The food is bought and made fresh daily. Prices are reasonable. Everything was great.

The food was amazing, priced right. Debbie our server was super friendly and very informative about the history of the lodge. So much history and so beautifully kept. The bloody Mary was on point and the steak was delicious. Will definitely be back.

We had a New Years Eve lunch at Hunters lodge today and it was fantastic! The honey teriyaki wings were the best. Fisherman’s platter was also delicious and bacon wrapped giant scallops were very good! We will add this to our list of favorite places to have lunch. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming too!
