good for drinks, watch the bridge lights turn on but food is mediocre. Just a good stop but not for dinner.

We went to River Station our first evening in the Hudson Valley. We sat upstairs in a room with lovely picture windows and a view of the river. Unfortunately, that's the only nice thing I have to say, We noticed many dirty tables left uncleared. They remained that way throughout the evening. We ordered our dinners, and started a very...

I bring my elder here often because she loves the place and I do too. The chowders are always great, the wait and bar staff, no matter how busy the place gets, are on top of their game. The food is very good. The river view is awesome and the ambiance is comfy. The owner greets you and asks how... More

This great restaurant is right on the Hudson River and has beautiful view. There is seating both indoor and outdoor. The food is quite good. The restaurant is popular so on busy weekends get there earlier or be prepared to wait. Parking can be an issue, again get there early.

We visited for Sunday brunch, and we were early. The closest and nicest parking area was reserved "for valet", even though that service was not offered at this time. We had choice of table on deck, in shade with great view of Hudson. Service was prompt and efficient. Bloody Mary's were OK. Beef and burgers were pretty well done. Grilled... More

Coming into Poughkeepsie, we didn't have a clue about where to eat. It was a nice evening, we wanted to enjoy the view, and we were hungry, so we checked TripAdvisor and found River Station. Lucky us! The minute we walked in the door, we were greeted by the friendly hostess who offered us our choice of a sample of... More

We went to dinner after a day of bike riding the rail trail. We had a very nice waitress that was very attentive. I had the Rib Eye and my partner had the Chicken and Pesto. My steak was not the best Rib Eye I have eaten, however the Pesto Linguini and Chicken we had was awesome. The parking was... More

Monday is half-price burger day. So you can get a nice view with a modest bill. I found the service friendly and the Salmon Burger good.
