Nanticoke and Old Forge

  • 2

We revently tried Stookey's in Nanticoke, and it was nothing special. Pork Sandwich was edible, but not terrific, and the fries and rings were good, but not awesome. Reasonable prices, but not worth the detour.

This weekend, we tried Mart's Blue Room in Nanticoke, which was also nothing special. VERY expensive, and quite average. We sampled the crabby pretzel, the shrimp scampi, a scallops with cheese, and several starters and sides. The cheese on the salad and the beer were very good. Everything else was just OK, and costly! For the money, we should have eaten at Michaelangelo's in Clarks Summit.

Revello's in Old Forge was also a bit of a let down. My family did not grow up with Old Forge Pizza (though I did) and thought it was gummy and bland. Not particularly warm either. We sampled both red and white pizza. The reviewer who said it is a lot like Ellio's frozen was not necessary off the mark. Arcaro's was better.

      OhNO!!! That is NOT good news! Thanks for the update (and saving us an unrewarding detour).
