Quaint Place Near Vassar College

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... read more

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.

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

've been a patron of the beech tree for almost a decade. It started out before the rise of the bistro boom and has always had great food. Those standards have never dropped. But the people who wait, seat, and bus tables are atrocious. Unfriendly, look at you then walk by, never refill a drink, never drop the check, seem... More

This place is always packed and the meal is always excellent. Even the salad is amazing. We usually get the steak, but there are many other excellent options. I enjoy the beer sampler, as they often have unusual beers and will change the samples from time to time. Service is great. The proximity to Vassar College and the local park... More

This place was a pleasant surprise. Have many craft beers on tap and very good prices for them! We went as a party of 4. The place is a bit small and squished but it did us just fine. We had the fresh mozzarella and calamari for the appetizer....DELICIOUS! The calamari could have been a little more cooked but that's... More
