The UpRiver Cafe's ambience is only exceeded by it's 5 Star cuisine created by Chef Andrew Van Bourgondien. Nestled against the backdrop of the Hudson River and Rockwell Falls, dining on the deck for lunch or dinner can be a hypnotic experience alone or with friends. From late April to late September, a "must stop" experience for locals or visitors... More

My husband and I go to UpRiver Cafe every time we are at Sacandaga and have celebrated our wedding anniversary there for several years. Right now I am craving the loooong spiral of shaved beet that tops every delicious salad and wishing I could duplicate the effect at home. Eating on the porch overlooking the Upper Hudson is a must... More

This was the old Papa's ice cream store years ago. Well... let me tell you. This is a great place for some fine tasting food, with one hell of a view! My wife and I love this place. It has become the new place to getaway and soak up the surroundings of the smell of great food and the fresh... More

The Café is casual and has a great view from the back porch. The view of the upper Hudson is very nice. Service was good, but the soup spoons could have been cleaner. The New England Clam Chowder was more of a soup than a chowder. It was Ok but I would never order it again. The Lobster Roll ($14)... More

The Upper Café has a very casual atmosphere. You can eat outside overlooking the Hudson River or inside. The food is fantastic. We have been there for lunch and dinner. Last time we went we had pan seared scallops with tomato fondue and risotto. Absolutely delicious and reasonably priced.

Ahi tuna delicious; creme brûlée outstanding. Small but interesting menu changes as the creative chef's inspiration dictates. Service very good. Definitely worth a visit when you are in the area.

Very interesting menu and excellent preparation. the lobster roll is fantastic. You cannot beat the setting,sitting right on the rapids of the Hudson River. We think we saw an osprey. The prices are fair for the quality of the food and the deserts are very special. Our waitress was the one negative. She was really pushing us along. Back every... More

The view was beautiful as we sat outside to eat lunch. The food was better than average but I would definitely return to try their dinner menu.

This café is one the best restaurants that we have eaten in! We were a little skeptical at first & thought it was crazy that we needed a reservation but we did. It is so friendly and our table for two outside was delightful. The food was delicious and could be compared to a big city restaurant. I am so... More
