Where to Eat in Lake Harmony: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Matilde Konrad

Lake Harmony is a reservoir in the Pocono Mountains. It enjoys four distinct seasons, which provide endless fun and a myriad of nature-filled activities that are fun for the whole family. The Pocono Mountains are famous not only for their natural scenic beauty, but for the variety of activities available to visitors. People staying near Lake Harmony can spend the day outdoors enjoying nature, and spend their evenings enjoying theater performances and concerts. Whether you are a hiker, biker, skier, snowboarder, botanist or water park lover, Lake Harmony promises a true Pennsylvania mountain experience. In winter, Jack Frost and Big Boulder Ski Mountains will likely be within five minutes of your accommodations, so you can ski the slopes, ride a snowmobile, or tube down the mountain. Adventurous visitors who want to try a truly unique winter sport can mush their own dogsled team. Enjoy the laurel blossoms, daffodils, and native plants exploding in this colorful natural canvas in the spring. Hit the antique shops, specialty stores, and outlet malls to search for bargains or a gift for that special someone at home. In the summer, you will be near many nature trails where you can walk, bike, or go on horseback through the mountains. Tee off at a championship golf course. Rent a canoe and float on the lake and enjoy the wooded scenery and the rushing waterfalls. If you’re traveling with kids, you will love taking them to the New Split Rock Water Park.

My husband and I were driving through the
Poconos and wanted to find a unique place to stop for lunch... definitely found it! The environment is a lot of fun - tables are surrounded by vintage wallpapers, small antique gifts for sale, window dressings, etc... we even had an astrology book placed at our table.

Recommend getting a hot chocolate or fresh flavored coffee (we had chocolate raspberry). It’s served in a giant mug and you can get it loaded with with whipped cream & syrup too.

Chat - N - Chew Cafe

Breakfast and lunch served all day

Reviewed By Ralee - NJ

Visiting the area for a family wedding, we headed to the Chat N Chew for breakfast Sunday morning. When we arrived at the nondescript store front diner, they were experiencing a brisk local business, so our large group of 13 had to wait for a table. Once seated, coffee and tea were promptly served and orders taken. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch only, and like all diners, breakfast is always available. The breakfast menu was extensive and included the regular eggs, pancakes and waffles. The interior is a mix of tables and booths with an eclectic collection of wall plaques for decoration. The food was hot, with ample portions, and just as ordered. Everyone was pleased with their meal and several took doggie bags home as they were unable to finish their servings. We will return to the Chat-n-Chew when we are next in the area.

Bella Mia

Reviewed By Pazeen - Ruckersville, Virginia

Our family of out-of-towners rented a house nearby for 3 nights. On the first night, we got 4 pizzas for take-out and they were delicious. Nice crispy crust, flavorful sauce and good toppings.
For the third night (which was our family Christmas celebration), we had pre-ordered a pan of chicken parmigiana to accompany some homemade pasta that we had brought. The chicken parm was outstanding - and I mean outstanding. It couldn't have been better. And very reasonably priced.
I highly recommend Bella Mia to any locals or visitors in the Albrightsville area.

The hotel we were staying at re
commended Murphy's Loft.
We walked into "rustic" bar and girl behind bar said to sit anywhere. We sat at table in dining room and no one EVER came to the table. We could hear that orders were being taken in the bar but apparently you have to sit on a bar stool to get waited on. Very poor service (we got our own menus out of slot on wall) and can't comment on food because we never got so much as a glass of water. We walked out.

We went here twice for dinner during our trip to Lake Harmony. Both the food and the service were good. Our first night there Vickie was our server and she was efficient and personable. I would definitely recommend going here for dinner, it's on Boulder Lake with a view of the mountain and nice snowy sunsets.

China Pearl Chinese Restaurant

Reviewed By GuitarPlayer2006 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We were pleasantly surprised by this Chinese restaurant. It is located in a small strip mall along Rt. 940 at Blakeslee Corners. The dining area has a lot of tables and booths that are spaced apart nicely. It was clean and well-heated, especially for December in the Poconos. The menu had a lot of choices and the prices were very reasonable. Our food was very good and the portions were large. The night we were there quite a few other people were dining inside and they had a huge takeout business. We will definitely go back to this place.

It is a typical Subway with a few tables and chairs to sit. Prices follow most often what on the ad's.
