New & Noteable: Mountain Creek Grill

Mountain Creek Grill is a new Pocono dining experience for the entire family. The atmosphere conveys modern, rustic elegance, welcoming diners to sit and enjoy a full menu ranging from comfort classics to unexpected culinary innovations. New owners Jaqui and John Collechio committed to hiring local workers and artisans to completely renovate the Bartonsville space that was previously Big Daddy’s. Their efforts are perfectly exemplified with art appointing the space by a local student! Gorgeous metal sculptures hang throughout the restaurant, in addition to the “local wall of fame” which is comprised of famed Pocono athletes.

Vegetarian selections and classic comfort foods like pot roast and homemade “Mountain Meatloaf” are also part of this new Pocono Mountain dining experience- and the portions are generous! Mountain Creek Grill also boasts the new MCG Sports Lounge, a relaxing place to enjoy sporting events on numerous large screen TVs.

The Collechios are excited to connect with customers and fulfill their expectations. “If we aren’t doing something right, we want to know about it,” says Jaqui. “We are here to serve the best food in a great, family-friendly atmosphere that will make you want to come back to see us again and again.” Local families, local knowledge, and a prime location has Mountain Creek Grill poised for local success in the Pocono Mountains!
