Still thinking about dessert!

Had an amazing pumpkin dessert that my friend and I are still thinking about-I think it was the best pumpkin dessert I have ever had! Dinner was delicious as well-but I don't remember it as much as dessert :-)

Food was excellent once we received it. Server was not prepared to answer questions on menu. Windows needed cleaning. Took advantage of location and setting which would be attractive to the average city tourist

We always have a great meal when we visit Peekamoose. The menu is creative, utilizes local ingredients, and changes often. We always order the Chopped Salad (we split one, as it's quite large). Sometimes the service can be a bit slow on weekends, but the food is worth the wait.

I was surprised to read in their bio that they had rehabbed a farmhouse to become the Peekamoose Restaurant. I used to go to that restaurant 20 years ago when it was "Jake's Blue Moon" that had the most insane Sunday brunch that probably put them out of business. I hike in the Catskils regularly with my dogs and have... More

We ate at Peekamoose on the recommendation of our motel, The Roxbury. Everything was great from the start. It is a farm to table restaurant. The atmosphere had a great rustic, yet "city" feel. The menu was inventive. We had the warm beet salad as an appetizer. It was delicious. Our main courses of roasted chicken and sirloin steak were... More

Ate at Peekamoose after numerous people pointing us in their direction the night after my wedding in the catskills. Last minute they accommodated my party of 10+ with a beautiful private table, and the most amazing food I have ever eaten in my life. The chef's wife gave us suggestions - one which changed my life forever: their braised short... More

We went here while in the area to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was perfect - the service, the food quality. We couldn't have enjoyed our meal more.

We had a delicious meal here at the height of the fall colors. This rustic yet elegant restaurant was a delight from the warm, dense bread to the dessert. The bottle of Crianza wine was excellent and reasonably priced. We shared the chopped salads which was plenty for the both of us. It was followed by the roasted chicken which... More

My wife and I always look forward to our dining experiences at this restaurant. The food is great and this weekend's choice of squash risotto followed by the short ribs entree was out of this world! Of course, it's always great to see owner Marybeth when we travel to the Catskills region! We can't wait to return!
