We were staying in Hancock for a camp visiting weekend and decided to travel 15 minutes to this unexpected find. Located in the West Branch resort, as we travelled to the restaurant we thought we had taken a wrong turn as to road leading up to it is quite rural. But there it was! The food was quite good.

Have eaten at the Tavern downstairs many, many times throughout the years while fishing the West Branch. Went there twice during our last trip and was looking forward to some of their delicious food but, alas, the meals have really gone downhill. After the first trip we figured it was just an off night, but after the second marginal meal,... More

The food is average at best. The view is delightful and the server was pleasant (her second day there). However, the water tastes like it is pumped directly from the river. My Ceasars salad was mediocre. The "cold" shrimp wad tasteless. It is also a little pricey.

Chef Michael has moved from his own restaurant to the River Run. I can only hope in time they will allow him to do more of his own signature dishes. He does a very nice job.

Nice restaurant with good food. We all enjoyed our meals. Staff friendly, place was beautiful inside. They had a wedding there earlier in the day. Probably one of the nicer places to eat in that remote area. Would go again.

This restaurant has a choice of dining rooms, casual or a little more formal. The more formal area has multiple hunting trophies so some of my friends prefer the more casual dining area below. The menu has a very nice selection of great food.

Each night after returning from fly fishing we hit this place for dinner. Nicely done with friendly staff. Open late for eats after dark in the summer which is a requirement when the bugs don't stop at dinner time.

Set in a beautiful location, I guess I had hoped for a little more from this place. The downstairs bar seemed fun for drinking. We had dinner outside on the deck. It gets chilly at night even in the summer as you are in the mountains. The waitress spilled hot soup all over my arm and didn't even notice (I... More

Excellent food at this upscale flyfishing resort on the West Branch of the Delaware River. A very country old lodge like look and feel and geared towards the outdoorsman. Nice place and really nice bar downstairs.
