Catskill's Best Kept Secret

My wife and I wanted to eat at Peekamoose with another couple we rarely get to see. We called ahead to get a table at 6:30 and were a bit disappointed to find the inside dining room had no tables available- but the hostess offered us a table (first come) in the tavern or outside.

I have known this restaurant for 10 years.. I say it like that because Peekamoose is like that old dear friend that doesn't judge you for eating french fries for dinner or a pint & half of ice cream at midnight. This is a fantastic restaurant all around. The food is superb and inventive, the staff is fantastic, Deanna is... More

Thank you for your kind words and praise! And yes, we can't agree more - Deanna is truly a gem - talented and unflappable - and honestly one of the best people we know. Thank you for your continued loyalty. We are truly fortunate to have such wonderful guests return time and time again. More

WOW is right....when there is nothing around and then you sit down to this menu you wonder if you are reading correctly. Great food and prices. Limited menu but plenty to choose from to eat. Service was mediocre but w/o complaining they did compensate with an after dinner drink and ice cream. It was my husband's birthday.

This is definitely worth it for an upscale meal in the Catskills. However, don't be put off by patrons wearing ball caps inside or some service inconsistencies.

Stopped in at the recommendation of a friend from brooklyn who has been frequenting the catskills. We chose to sit on the deck after a long car drive. Our cute and well informed mustached server pointed out the favorites and suggested the verminto (which i will be looking for when i get home). We started with jalepeno watermelon which was... More

We are foodies (well I certainly am) that are tough to please. This was our second trip to the Peekamoose and we could not have been happier. We brought friends this time, and they too were happy and impressed. What looks like to be a small "joint" on the roadside through the Catskills, is really an elegant gourmet restaurant, but...

We have eaten here may times over the years (and loved it), but this was our first time back in a while, and it was not what it once was. To be fare it was the 4th of July, so their main chef was likely off for the night, but our meal was so bland we will seriously think twice... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Yes, we do remember that evening quite well, as we were booked solid with reservations throughout the rainy daytime - and then the sun peeked out at 5:30pm and we were inundated with cancellations, since 4th of July is typically a big day for backyard barbecuing. I apologize for your delayed seating... More

We have been going to Peekamoose since the restaurant opened and I feel guilty for not posting a review before this. I have found their cuisine to be consistently good, There are occasional blips -- I noted the review of the beet soup -- I, too, prefer not to have beets in chunks in soup, but that said there is...
