We stopped off in New Paltz for lunch as we headed south on the Thruway. Came upon this place just outside of town by the river. I was able to pull into the parking lot and find a parking spot despite pulling our pop-up camper. Cool ambience, seating indoors and out. We sat outside on a covered patio. I had... More

The Gilded Otter serves up delicious dishes - we had the Fish & Chips with roasted veggies (a huge piece of nicely fried fish) with some Katzenjammer Kolsch - perfect! The wait staff are attentive, friendly and efficient. It's perfect for a small intimate dinner or a night out with the whole gang, or catch up on reading while enjoying... More

Had lunch with friends here today. Sat outside on a lovely day and was expecting a great lunch. Ordered a mixed green salad topped with grilled chicken. My salad arrived and I took a piece of chicken which was very good. The rest of the salad was a different story. The carrots had a funny, musty taste, the cucumbers were... More

Stopped here on the way home from NYC, so we didn't make a special trip, which would have been disappointing if we had gone out of our way. Our disappointment was in the fact that they were out of their two darkest beers, the Stout and the Black IPA. This is a brewery so anythime you are down 2 beers... More

Loved lunch here - great menu, wonderful setting, and for beer lovers, it is perfect. Appetisers to share were especially good but wouldn't recommend the choices for someone watching their weight!

Drove 40 minutes to check this place out and was disappointed when we got there. Nice place, plenty of parking. I had read about their flight/sampler of beers and was excited to try what they had on tap. It consisted of 8 3oz. glasses. We figured try the sampler and decide what we wanted to drink for the next three... More

My BF and I stopped here for a few drinks. The beer is good and the atmosphere is great! The servers/bartenders were super friendly and everyone was just having a good time. The decor inside is really cool. They had good Happy Hour specials, but we were only having a few drinks & moving on. The menu looked like typical... More

Stopped here after a long bike ride for a cold beer and a meal. Server seemed like he was bored. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which was nothing special. The fries that came with the meal were good but I would not recommend this dish. My husband had the Cajun tilapia which he really liked. It came with rice... More

I always stop here for a beer after a day of climbing. Apps are good and so is food fun place. Growlers to go are awesome.
