Decided to dine here for lunch. The food all tasted the same either it being the popcorn shrimp or fries... the grease taste was consistent. Tuna wontons were really good and the crab cake was ok too. Beet salad could have been better -- lackluster at best. Not enough dressing and beets did not taste like they were roasted on... More

We've eaten here many times and have always been pleased. The service is great. My favorite is the seafood combo dish (I forget its exact name on the menu) with scallops shrimp, mussels and more in a nice sauce with pasta. Once it was too spicy so they brought out a fresh plate with milder sauce. Lunch is quite reasonable.... More

We were invited by our friend to attend a First Birthday party for their son Jacob. The restaurant is nestled nicely along the edge of the Hudson River. There are a few other restaurants on that same block. It seems as though the area would be livelier when warm weather arrives. The restaurant is cozy, warm and welcoming. They decorated... More

My wife had the lobster and shrimp encroute (a puff pastry). Very good. I had a sandwich which was also very good. She ordered a bloody mary, and it was too salty for her. That is a matter of taste though.

The restaurant is located on the West side of the Hudson River with a terrific view from the patio as well as the dining room. We were with a group of 45. We had a choice of a fish or chicken entree and soft drinks. The servings were adequate for lunch and served hot. The wait staff was very efficient... More

Very good layout for summer or winter, coupled with good food and service makes this a nice member of the expanding team of places on the Newburgh waterfront.

Beautiful patio for riverfront/marina dining! Service was very attentive and delicious food! Would recommend going off hours during summer months to avoid crowds. Will return.

Well here's a tip......maybe get the bakery to deliver on Sunday morning!! The Dulce-Leche Cheesecake (one of the few desserts left) did taste like it... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. It was a lovely meal. We had a nice table outside where we could view the water. Our server was John and he was amazing.
