On a recent trip to Honesdale through Monticello, we found this restaurant. We were so surprised at the high quality of the food and the great service. It is very rare to find such a place like this off the beaten track. Their home made breads are a real treat. I am sure that we will go back every year... More

I never minded paying a little more for better quality. Goes with anything. This restaurant is simply my favorite when I am in the Orange or Sullivan County area. Been there many times and never disappointed. Great staff and great food. Took my wife there on our first date cause I knew it was going to impress her. Love this... More

Some reviewers have made much of the fact that this restaurant is in the middle of nowhere. That is a bit of an exaggeration. It is just off Route 17, above the Neversink River, and on the way to the Holiday Mountain ski area. It is certainly not in the middle of New York City, but they do have electricity... More

My husband and I enjoyed the carpaccio and tuna tar tar as appetizers. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Alice is back and in full control. Welcoming each and every patron! We felt like we were family. My surf and turf was perfect and my husbands filet mignon was cooked to perfection (rare). We ended our dinner with an after... More

How nice to have a place where you can have a meal worthy of any highly reviewed Manahattan eatery, served by the daughter of your next door neighbor at a price that won't break the bank. This is the Old Homestead. A local establishment that time after time doesn't fail to leave me satisfied. Not one for rhetorical platitued I'd... More

Went to the Old Homestead with some friends last moth. We had a wonderful meal. The décor was very nice. The meals were exceptional as was the service. The staff were very personable and attentive to our group (9 people). Everyone totally enjoyed it. We will be going back.

Came to have dinner with my family to celebrate my birthday. Everything was great. Had the large steak which was huge and loved every bite! Sautéed broccoli is delicious. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Couldn't have asked for a nicer time. Free birthday dessert too! Definitely worth the trip.

I am a local who has frequented this restaurant many times over the last 10 years. They have always been known as the place to go for steak, although pricey. Three men in our group ordered a medium sized steak, which are in itself large, but were then delivered the largest steak, thereby being charged for the larger steak. We... More

The best steak in Sullivan County. Love to bring friends to this great restaurant for a wonderful meal. The soft shell crab is the meatiest I have ever eaten. Save room for delicious desserts as well.

We arrived at 9 PM and it was clearly the last sitting and the staff wanted to clear up and go. Our waiter was pretty weird and stank of fags. He a very poor attempt at humour that just made us feel uncomfortable. My wife ordered a crab cocktail and it was served as lumps of crab on lettuce. I... More

Sorry about your experience at the Old Homestead. We are located in upstate NY not NYC. We just opened on May 2 for the season and after reading your bad review know you were not at our restaurant. Perhaps you can take a ride to Monticello and dine with us. More
