Most things are fried. Live music too loud outside to hear pleasant dinner conversation. Waterfront trashed with litter (not their fault), but with a good bit of effort and involvement, they could help to turn it in to a real destination, location.

Tonight I returned here because I was very happy on my last experience. I cannot say anything about this visit. My guest and I were shown to a table inside right away. We remained there at the table for twenty minutes with no one coming over to our table. When the table next to us was seated and their server... More

My friends and I had the pleasure of dining here on a warm pleasant night. The service was great. Our server was friendly, informative and made our experience very pleasant. The wine recommended was spot on. We all enjoyed our entree's very much. We will visit again.

We were a party of 7 for lunch mid-week. We asked to be seated inside and the place was almost empty. The waitress was less than attentive to our party. In fact, one of the people in our party asked for water after we had our food. After the third request, we finally got the water. We were not check... More

Food is just ok. Service is just ok. If you sit outside the service is worse. Food is not prepared as it should be. Looks good on the menu but when you get it, it is quite poor. Have bar appetizers instead of a meal.

We very much enjoyed a lovely mid-week dinner at Capt.Jakes. We shared the weekday dinner special consisting of 2 entree's with a bottle of wine for $33.00. A great deal with superb food. Sat outside with a panoramic view of the river on a warm summer evening. We added an appetizer that was quite tasty as well. Portions were good,... More

We had dinner here one night while staying in Newburgh. Not as upscale as Torches (where we ate the second night) but a good value with their special. Live music while we ate. Good character.

We went last night and the service was excellent.We sat outside and the river views we wonderful. The waiter was very tentative. Prime Rib was cooked to the way I asked. Restaurant is located on the water front so I expected the prices to be high but the ambiance made up for it. We will definitely be returning patrons.

Been here 2 times now and always great food. It's a nice setting out along the Hudson, whether day or night. A great area to try various restaurants, but I always seem to come back here. Mid week special: 2 entrees, 2 desserts, bread, bottle of wine with tax.. under $50! Food is scrumptious. Go there!

My husband and I recently ate here while touring the area. The atmosphere is really nice. It is right on the Hudson River. Great views from the inside and out. The service was good. A nice waiter was friendly and the service was prompt. The food was hit and miss. We had a raw sampler. Some of it was really... More
