Visited in late summer 2017 after more than 10 years. Husband loved his broiled seafood platter. I did not love my skirt steak- although the flavor was there the meat was tough. Vegetables were limp and lacked flavor. The place could use an update and...More

The selection of chowder was excellent as was the chowder. Was lucky enough to get a table with a view of the Hudson. Pear cider was delicious.. The salmon, lettuce and tomato was tasty. Prices were fair and service was quick.

Greeted at the door by the manager and offered a selection of soups and stews set the pace for the great service at this pub-style restaurant overlooking the Hudson River. Excellent raw bar and appetizers on the deck before heading to the Walkway.

The food was not that good, beer prices are high. Service was average.It's a tourist trap people can eat on their deck and look at the Hudson and Catskills. I won't be back.

Went for lunch with a friend...haven't been in years. My hamburg was cooked perfectly (still mooing). Hardly any patrons were there. Waitress didn't return to ask if we wanted refills on our beverages. Waitresses were standing around in a group yakking. Ridiculously bad parking for...More

We took my mom here for her 76th birthday dinner as she said she had never been to this restaurant before. We were sat upstairs by the window which was a nice view and it was quiet. Ordered the seafood tower and bruschetta for appetizers,...More
