Stuck in a restaurant rut? Tired of the same places for Date Night? The solution is Garlic. No, I’m not suggesting that you eat enough garlicky foods to repulse your significant other. On your next night out, visit Garlic Restaurant & Bar.

Located on Main Street in Stroudsburg, Garlic features “New American” cuisine with a touch of, you guessed it, garlic. From lobster to lasagna, there’s something for everyone. With a menu that showcases a unique twist on American favorites, Garlic offers fresh, hand-cut, Prime steaks. If you prefer surf to turf, Seafood Garlic is a must. Lobster, crab, scallops, and shrimp in a rich, lemon butter sauce…is your mouth watering yet? Hit up Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4-6PM and score half-off appetizers and what’s on tap. Try the housemade sangria for just $4 or enjoy a select martini for $6. One appetizer you can’t miss is the Black Jack – filet mignon medallions, topped with creamy gorgonzola and fresh arugula. Yum! Make sure you save room for dessert, because Garlic’s in-house pastry chef is famous for whipping up the tastiest treats in town. The Tall, Dark, and Delicious is a six-layer chocolate cake that no chocoholic can resist.

I think you get the picture – the food at Garlic is awesome. But what’s the story on this hidden gem of the ‘burg? While operating Trackside Station Grill & Bar and Liquid Martini Bar, Michael and Diane Tepedino realized they needed a larger space to accommodate Liquid’s growing clientele. Sharing a kitchen to prepare two completely different menus just wasn’t cutting it anymore, so in 2013 The Tepedinos opened Garlic Restaurant & Bar, and the rest is history. Today, their menu continues to appeal to customers from the Poconos and beyond in search of fine food and atmosphere.

Whether you’re headed out for drinks with the girls or craving an amazing meal with your main squeeze, Garlic Restaurant & Bar is the place to be this summer. Enjoy live entertainment from local artists every Friday and Saturday evening, beginning at 6PM. In case you aren’t already sold, Garlic also boasts a full-service outdoor patio. Dinner and drinks with a side of fresh air? Sign me up!

Be on the lookout this summer for a variety of special events, including wine pairings, an art show, and “Yoga on the Patio.” Like Garlic Restaurant & Bar on Facebook or follow “GarlicintheBurg” on Instagram for the latest event information, specials, giveaways, and more.
