My husband and I stopped here for lunch with another couple. The café used to be an ice cream shop, now the ice cream bar was being used to enjoy a glass of wine while waiting for a table. Our wait was short, our table gave us a beautiful view of the river. There was an outdoor wedding next door... More

We were advised to get a reservation but l thought since we were in such small town why bother. Wrong. Since l did not get a reservation we had to sit inside which is a bummer. The outside deck is unique and worth calling ahead to secure an outside table. The best tables are on the railing. We came back... More

My family visited the UpRiver Cafe on July 18th 2014. When we arrived, we were told they did not have a reservation for us and had an attitude of "don't know what to tell you", finally the woman who took our reservation, stepped in and found us a table, but only because someone else called to say they were running...

Relax and dine on outdoor deck by the river. Good selection of entrees at reasonable prices. Highly recommend staying at Lamplight Inn B&B just around the corner.

Great food on a beautiful river. You can see the rapids from the back porch . The onion soup was so good. And I highly recommend the curry chicken salad. The staff was really nice and totally accommodating to the kids.

I'm fortunate enough to live right around the corner from this fantastic restaurant. The view of the Hudson is just amazing, and the service is always efficient, professional, and friendly. The food can range from a basic burger to the more elegant shrimp and scallop risotto, and the dinner specials are usually absolutely divine. No matter what you order, attention... More

The food here was reAlly great! The view of the river is so pretty. We went for lunch and enjoyed everything. They even brought out blankets for the people at the tables when it got chilly. Very cute place.

Comfortable, casual dining experience that will surprise you with somewhat elegantly prepared choices. From the chefs award winning chili to his macaronie and lobster. The service is friendly , efficient and the prices affordable. Great spot for lunch as well overlooking the Hudson River in the former Papas Ice Cream parlor.

We visited the UpRiver Cafe on June 6 at the tail end of Americade week. We arrived at the restaurant before the dinner rush and got a great table on the rear porch close to the river. The restaurant was clean and the view was great. The food was prompt and delicious. But the service was awful. Our waitress apparently... More
