Unexciting beers

It had been about eight years since I'd been to New Paltz, and I remembered often stopping at the Gilded Otter for beers. Of course it was our first stop when we got back into town. Unfortunately my memories had deceived me (or my palette had evolved). We agreed that none of the beers were... read more

There are lots of different food choices, and lots of vegetarian options. I always had a good meal. Not a ton of beers to chose from, but what I had was good quality.

Clean, good food, and reasonably priced. Just on the edge of town, with indoor and outdoor dinning. Live entertainment too. Its a fun place and family friendly. They can also handle large parties.

My friend and I went there late afternoon for drinks and appetizer after hiking nearby. We parked the car and changed clothes in the parking lot. Next to us was a young man smoking pot in his car. We went in and asked for a table outside. It was 5:45pm. The host said it was for dinner only. I told... More

We stopped here for beer, burgers and cheese curds. All were good. They have pub food which was good and the service was okay. They were a little busy so we did not get refills as quickly as we would have liked. They have beer samplers you can get and many kinds of flavors if you are into flavored beer... More

For lunch we strolled from the main business area of New Paltz to the GO. The lunch crowd for a weekday was moderate. We were seated quickly. Our server came to provide us with menus and was well versed with the variety of beers offered that day. A sampler of 8 beers is recommended for the uninitiated to this brewery.... More

I have worked in the hospitality field for 30 years...We came in to see my daughter and were told that the G/O was a very decent place to eat. We arrived and waited for about 20 minutes to attract the attention of a crabby hostess that mentioned she came out of the business office to fill in due to staff... More

A New Paltz alum ('10), I have eaten and had drinks at the Otter dozens of times over many years, and I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed. Everything, from their large, local beer selection, delicious appetizers (fried cheese curds with chipotle mayo!), and amazing entrees will surely please. They have a nice bit of outdoor seating,...

We had dinner at The Gilded Otter in New Paltz this evening. We went early, like 5:30, and it was so crowded we could almost not get in the place. Great food, good service, great beer.
