An authentic Irish experience in the heart of the Poconos
Siamsa Irish Pub is an Authentic Irish Pub built in 2004. Owned and Operated by Brendan Gilsenan and Des Conboy both raised in the West of Ireland. Siamsa, pronounced “sheem-sa” comes from our ancient gaelic language. The word itself describes fun and Music.
In old Ireland, in times gone by, it would describe an evenings impromptu entertainment when country folk would ramble into a neighbour’s Cottage to sit and talk for awhile and listen to a storyteller or seanacai or possibly join in on a night of singing and dancing around a roaring fire.
Our Pub reflects both the Victorian style of 19th century Dublin Pubs, particularly in the ornate back Bar and use of glazed snug booths and the Celtic style which evolves the spirit of Irish creativity and mastery of mythological images.
We have dedicated ourselves to producing an authentic Siamsa Pub. Our Pub was built in Ireland, shipped to the Poconos and assembled by Irish craftsmen.
Garlίc Restaurant & Bar is the only upscale dining experience in the Poconos, proudly featuring fresh, hand-cut, Prime steaks and seafood!
Garlίc boasts the highest quality food available, the best service around, a full-service bar, live entertainment on weekends, breathtaking patio dining, a lively happy-hour, Stiletto Night every Thursday, local art on every wall, and a young, innovative team.
We listen to our customers and we change to meet demands and exceed expectations. Garlίc was originally was created with the concept of “Italian fusion” – serving traditional Italian dishes and exploring New American cuisine. Very soon, the management team realized that the upscale New American cuisine items, namely our Prime steaks and fresh seafood were dominating the menu.
The innovative menu has became so successful that it transformed Garlίc’s focus from Italian fusion to predominately Prime steaks, fresh seafood, and New American dishes with a touch of garlic.
In addition to our second-to-none menu offering, our professional mixologists are proud of their extensive wine list, fresh house-made sangrias, hand-crafted martinis, and seasonal-infused spirits.
Garlίc is more than dinner, it’s an experience.

Stephanikos, established 2014, is named after our daughter (Stephanie) and son (Nikolas). Originally from New York, our family moved to The Poconos 13 years ago, and opened an Italian Restaurant in the West End named Mangia Baby.
We have relocated to Stroudsburg and are now opening our New Ethnic Greek and Italian Taverna, which means small restaurant. We hope you enjoy some of my mother and father’s comfort, home-cooked recipes. Growing up in the kitchen, I learned these recipes as they were passed on to me through the years. Now here I am 34 years later, still in the kitchen cooking for you, our customers. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does.
