My husband and I love this place. The vibe is fun and laid back and I love the chairs with guitar backs and the funky menu names for the dishes. But that is not enough to keep bringing us back. The food is really good! Great pasta that is full of flavor. I love the Joplin pasta with chicken. The... More

This is a funky restaurant based on a rock and roll theme. For example there is a steak salad called "Thai and the Family Stone". We also always order the "James Brownie" for dessert. The salad dressing is made with ginger and is out of this world. They even bottle it.

A value with huge portions - not gourmet but an enjoyable college place like I recall when I went to college

This restaurant has a musical theme. One salad is called "Thai and the family stone". An amazing dessert is called the "James Brownie". It is tiny and delicious.

Atmosphere is fun, staff are friendly, and dishes are delicious. They are accompanied by a side salad with a house made sun-dried tomato dressing that is very good and unique. Walls are covered by great photos of rock stars, ceiling is decorated with 45s and the chairs at the bar have used guitars for their backs. TV over bar has... More

This is a great drop in place for tasty, healthy, vegan pasta dishes right in downtown New Paltz. Unfortunately, my one experience was a family meal including my elderly mother and it was too hip and loud for her. There is a very large screen playing music videos (we watched a U2 concert and the Red Hot Chili Peppers). They... More

Stopped by last Saturday and we all squeezed into the center table and I feasted on Spaghetti and the Grateful red sauce for desert I had the Apple cobbler which was delicious. The homemade sauce and the Homemade Breads were incredible. They had a "Light" German beer which was really good compliment to the dinner. The service was very good... More

I cant believe some of the positive reviews and question who made them. The pasta was the worst I have ever eaten. It was not cooked correctly and it was like eating a cardboard box. It was bland and lacked any taste. Come on folks lets keep it real. This place is like the joint you hit after a big... More
