Great German food in Mountainhome, PA

If you are ever on a Pocono vacation and you like food, then you MUST check out Jagermiester Restaurant in Mountainhome. This place makes some of the best German food I have ever eaten! The location is great if you are staying at a resort and are bored with the selections the hotel might be offering. Everything from the potato pancakes to the rahmschnitzel was fabulous. My favorite dish weiner schnitzel with spaetzle. I have posted some pictures!

      It is on 390 right accross the street from the Pocono Playhouse and down the road a bit from Callie's Candy Kitchen (another great destination).

        Great pictures! I completely agree. I grew up a few miles from the Jagermeister and love their food. The spaetzle with gravy is my favorite.

        I second Callie's Candy Kitchen, about a mile or less north of the Jagermeister. Nice family-run business with good homemade candy, in particular the Pocono Crunch. If you're lucky, Mr. Callie will be doing a candy-making demonstration when you're there.

        The Daily Bread bakeshop across the road from Callie's has delicious bread and rolls. I especially like their country loaf (or rustic loaf, I forget the exact name). I also like their cookie bars and coffee cake. If they have cream puffs, get some. The bottoms are sometimes a little soggy, but the filling more than makes up for it.

        I like the Mountainhome Diner for my scrapple fix. And they re-opened the ice cream stand next door this summer.

        If you see any local churches advertising chicken and dumplings or pork and sauerkraut dinners, I like those too. It's not haute cuisine by any means, but a nice way to experience the non-touristy side of the Poconos. If they're serving kielbasa soup on the menu, get it.

        There's also a well-stocked gourmet cooking store in Mountainhome, called A Cook's Tour. The deli at Lewis' Market makes good sandwiches. I recommend the roast beef club on lightly toasted rye.

        The stretch of 390 that passes through Mountainhome is a hidden treasure. Mountainhome is about 4 miles north of 940. Don't blink or you'll miss it!

        Sorry for the long post, but I'm proud of my hometown!

          I LOVE Cook's tour! It is one of my favorite stores, and I never leave empty handed.
          My Mother always gets a the country loaf and blueberry pie from The daily bread, both are incredible. We love Lewis' too! Thanks for posting, I can't wait to try the scrapple the next time I am there.

            After your recommendation, I finally stopped at Jagermeister after driving past it for years on weekends. It was REALLY good! We had a party of 6 and everyone loved their dishes. The spaetzle with gravy was yummy. I will be back there for sure.

              When I discovered the most delicate schnitzel here 2 years ago, I had to go back into the kitchen and give my compliments to the chef! I'm glad PA is non smoking now, that was the only draw back to Jagermeister before.
