Serving the Poconos Since ‘79
Murphy’s Loft in Blakeslee is an old favorite for locals and vacationers alike. This rustic restaurant and bar is located in an authentic log cabin. Originally a hunting lodge, it’s been converted into a warm, welcoming space complete with a family friendly dining room and an enclosed, year-round patio. In the summer months, the outdoor patio, bar, and swimming pool are the place to be.
This family owned and operated restaurant serves lunch, dinner, and drinks. From classic pub snacks to homestyle dinners, they have it all. Be sure to check their daily specials too.
Murphy’s Loft also owns the Fern Ridge Motel, which is located right next door. It was originally built in the 1940s using stone from Big Boulder. The motel offers 15 rooms year-round.
Try the Super Steak Sandwich stuffed with filet mignon, lettuce, tomato, mushrooms, and fried onions. For dinner, order homemade favorites like hand-carved turkey and chicken parmigiana.
