My wife and i stopped here for breakfast on our way to Manchester, Vt. The atmosphere was very accommodating and the waitress was excellent. We opted for pancakes and also ordered a juice and a side of ham. We will definately stop again if in the area.

Amid classic sixties decor we enjoyed very good straightforward food at a very reasonable price. Liked it so much at lunch that we went back for dinner.

Happened on Dad's on the way from Hillsdale to NY. The menu is extensive and the food was excellent. Service was courteous and swift just as it used to be years ago. We felt more like invited guests than customers. Will always eat there when we are in the area.

Visited Dad's while on a day trip after seeing the Copake/ Bash Bish falls nearby, on suggestion from a friend. We had a cross section of selections from the menu for dinner, and everything was fantastic. Service is tops, and you can feel the hospitality and attention given to regular customers likewise given to us visitors not from the area.... More

We make sure to include Dad's in any trip to Copake. The food is fresh and the staff are always so accommodating, even when I invent my own salad. They use fresh ingredients, make great burgers and their malteds are a real treat. Definitely worth the stop!

The whole family loves this 50's style diner in the tiny hamlet of Copake. They serve breakfast all day, great burgers and wings and a extensive menu of offerings. There are blackboard specials every day and for the kids a walk up window at the back of the building for ice cream and frozen custard treats for dessert. It's an... More

Just had lunch at Dads after a bike ride on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. Growing up in New Jersey I know diners. Dad"s is great, a real throwback. Nostalgic decorations, attentive staff, good food at a fair price and extremely clean. Will return next time we ride on the rail trail

In addition to the restaurant/diner itself, there is a walk up window around back for take out... More
