Historic Foster's Coach House Tavern, originally constructed in 1890 as The Village Tavern, is owned and managed by the same Rhinebeck family since 1965. Well-known throughout the Hudson Valley for top-notch London Broil, homemade soups, Stuffed Clams, and juicy chargrilled Hamburgers, this classic and charming original offers great value and service. Al fresco dining in the warmer months and cozy tavern atmosphere year-round. Tap Room with full bar and 2 large screen TV's. Free, off-street parking. A must visit for locals and visitors alike when in the Village!
