Stepping back in time

We ate here recently for their shore night. Clam chowder, lobster, clams, mussels and a lot more. The restaurant makes you feel like you have stepped back in time quite a number of decades, but in a good, nostalgic way. We always enjoys eating here.

Last week, we celebrated the end of the school year and 25 yrs of school work. It was surf night, but we did not pre-order. We both had the turf end of the dinner and it was great, though one of us was missing a baked potato, but no worries. Plenty of food. Meal was great! Sat at bar for... More

Easily the best food in the area, especially for the money. The staff couldn't have been more curtious. It's a family run business and while you're there they make sure to go above and beyond to make sure you feel like family as well.

Restaurant is up a road that runs along a pretty stream. Well worth driving up there. The bar is at one end of the building, and the sit down restaurant part at the other. Menu is surprisingly varied, and all the dishes we have tried have been good. Service has been attentive and prices reasonable.

Went here in the summer of 2015 for a dinner with my girlfriend. The ambiance can't be beat and the food was terrific. Emil, the owner, made a point of coming over to our table, introducing himself and talking about the daily specials. I went with his recommendation and got one of the specials--a delicious tortellini dish. My girlfriend had... More

My two friends and I stumbled upon this restaurant while trying to find the hiking trail to Poets Ledge. We stopped for directions, and the owner suggested we come back for dinner after our hike. The restaurant is definitely out of the way, and on a dead end street, but I believe that adds to the appeal. There is a... More

If you're looking for traditional fayre with a rustic touch, then The Fernwood Restaurant is your place. Situated in Palenville, it is a little off the beaten track, but well worth the visit. You will experience a wonderful overall experience. We will definitely be back. Ambience is outstanding, perfect for a romantic meal. The starter and main menu is varied... More

Our dinner started with cocktails (gin and tonics), on the deck, perfect starters for a warm and pleasant evening. I ordered the Grilled Eggplant salad special and it was off-the-charts delicious! The presentation was first-rate, with luscious polenta "croutons" artfully arranged on fresh, mesclun lettuce. Next, we ordered the farfalle with mint, peas, lemon zest and ricotta salata. The pasta... More

Updating my review of 2010..... We visit Fernwood several times each year and recently had an outstanding meal in the company of a good friend. The menu has been stable over the years and I was somewhat surprised to find that it revised and updated. My wife and I were very happy with our selections. I had chicken encrusted with... More
