I was a regular here in the 70's when it was Mike's Tavern. Now they are trying to become a tourist trap overlooking the river. Beer prices are ridiculous.Food is average.

Very comfortable atmosphere; great views if seated by window. The food is absolutely delicious! The staff is attentive and friendly (with the exception of one hostess who may have been having a bad day). The sampling of their chowders is great; I buy some to go everytime!!

Was never asked if I wanted a second, and finally walked up to the bar and got it myself . Waitress never checked on us until it was time to pay at... More

Beautiful views of the Hudson River and delicious soups to choose from. Service was excellent and so were the oysters. Fun place to eat.

We had reservations for a large family lunch. They gave us the upstairs as it was a weekend. No elevator so the older people had a hard time making it up. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The meal was okay.

It has been a few months since we have been here. The upstairs has been remodeled and is very pleasant. The scenery is always worth a visit. Now for the restaurant, we have always had good meals here and that is important. This time someone had a headache. We gave our drink order and they arrived 25 minutes later one... More

Haven't been to River Station in quite a number of years. Came up here tonight to see some friends. River Station now has a seafood chowder bar. A selection of 6 seafood chowders. I had the lobster bisque. Simply outstanding with good lobster flavor and plenty of bits of lobster meat. My wife had the Octoberfest sauerbraten. This left quite... More
