We often grab some some light dinner and bring it to the waterfront to nosh. There are usually available picnic tables, which is good because the grass is often slightly littered and filled with bird droppings.

Far from our first time on the waterfront but we are impressed with the continuing improvements. Parking is somewhat limited but we always seem to find a place.

Yes, i get that you have a strategically awesome view of the mid hudson waterfont with a competent waitstaff. What is with your food? I have had better meals ordering from the golden arches of McDonalds than i had recieved here. The calamari was far less than original, the penne dish was lackluster at best, and the redeming factor was... More

It is slowly a work in progress, and during the spring, summer and fall months it is lovely to walk along and sit for a nice picnic.
