Pocono Mountains, Penn.  (April 8, 2016) – Kalahari Resorts and Conventions is proud to announce that one of it’s restaurants at the Pocono Mountains property, Brandberg, has been named OpenTable’s 2016 Diners’ Choice. Brandberg is a classic tavern with a modern twist, offering diners a distinctive dining and drinking experience that is both welcoming for families and a retreat for adults.

“As a family owned resort, we know how important it is to have food and beverage offerings that both kids and adults will enjoy,” said Travis Nelson, spokesperson, Kalahari Resorts. “Gone are the days of eating only chicken nuggets, cheeseburgers and spaghetti while on a family vacation – Brandberg offers the perfect combination of sophistication and taste to satisfy any aged palate.” 

Brandberg, named after the Brandberg Mountain, which is the highest point in Nambia, is Afrikaans, Duch and German for “Fire Mountain.” The mountain gets its name from its glowing color in the setting sun and can be seen from great distances.

Brandberg’s menu offers a wide range of tavern classics – from white cheddar cheese curds to fish and chips – however, each dish has a unique twist featuring combinations such as: Tempura Battered Banana, Poached Pear Salad, PB Bacon Burger and Brown Butter Gnocci and Crab. Brandberg elevates the dining experience from the expected to the memorable with its exceptional ingredients, flavor profiles and plating.

The cocktail, wine and beer selection at Brandberg is just as unique as its dishes, with one-of-a-kind mixological creations and wine list that will whisk you around the world.

To celebrate, now through April 30 locals and guests can enjoy $5.00 Shawnee draft beers and half priced appetizers on Wednesdays.

Brandberg is open to both the public and Kalahari Resorts guests. For more information, please visit
