We had to send back the salmon to get it cooked

This is a friendly pub-type place that also has a nice dinner menu. Overall we were satisfied with dinner there but it doesn't get 5 stars because we ordered salmon and specified that it had to be cooked through, and then found that it was still raw in the middle when it arrived. After the second... read more

This is a small restaurant located across from Vassar College in Pougkeepsie NY (the Arlington section). It has a wonderful bar (and bartender, Bridget!) and cozy tables to sit at. The food is amazing, from the Hangar steak to the Salmon, you can not go wrong. This place is a gem.

A popular lunch spot, this is a small restaurant with good food, a nice selection to the menu, and a comfortable atmosphere. Unfortunately, the service was less than friendly.

My wife had salad with chicken - the salad was good, the chicken was extremely dry. I had a sandwich with turkey. Good flavors but extremely dry turkey. Seemed like a nice place with good atmosphere (lots of love shown to regulars), but slow service and mediocre food.

My husband's family lives in Poughkeepsie, and we often eat out at the Beech Tree restaurant when we're visiting. I love the atmosphere - from the lighting to the exposed brick wall and wood beams to the cozy bar. It's casual and friendly to singles, couples, families, anyone. But it's also a nice restaurant with a nice menu at the... More

This is one of the best restaurant's I have frequented in the past few years. The daily lunch/dinner specials are unique with and excellent staff. I highly recommend this establishment for Lunch, dinner, or cocktails.

We've been going to the Beech Tree for more years then I care to admit, and it has been able to remain the same for all this time, which is amazing. If you like garlic then you must start with the Roasted Garlic, which will "Stay With You" for the rest of the day, but is well worth it as... More

Cute small restaurant near Vassar college. Food was good, comfortable place to dine. Had to wait for a table, but it was worth it!

My husband and I have dined here numerous times. I ALWAYS order the salmon, because it's so good I can't bear to order anything else. My husband usually orders risotto and is prone to ordering the daily specials. The food has NEVER disappointed either of us. But the kitchen is small which does result in a longer dining experience. Do... More

I've always liked the Beech Tree in Poughkeepsie, but after my experience on July 4th weekend, I won't be returning. The waitress was nasty to use the entire time. We waited for a long time to order & then our food also took a long time. When we ordered beer samples, she asked us if we just wanted to get... More
