We went to this bar on a Sunday night. The football game was on with lots of people sitting at the bar watching. The food is not good. My wife ordered Bruschetta which was terrible. It came with 8 pieces of toast with some melted cheese and very mediocre tomatoes. It was pretty bad. I ordered fish and chips which... More

Not sure why but I was expecting this place to be more upscale and that's not to say that it was not good but it was more of a local hangout in the bar area. It was warm enough that we sat on the balcony outside and I am sure the view during the daytime is great. Food was really... More

The views from the outdoor dining area are amazing and the five different Chowders were delicious (you can ask for samples). The rest of our food was just average. The beets on my Beet Salad were not very flavorful and the dressing was almost flavorless. The Fish & Chips were good and the Roulade with red cabbage were also good.

Walk in and we are greeted with chowder samples! Wow! They were good. Upstairs we had an excellent view of both bridges at night! Great menu, plus an Octoberfest choice menu! Ribs were great! Could not believe size of nachos plate! Terrific choice!

This is a very reasonably priced restaurant with a gorgeous setting. We went on a rare, warm October evening. The view from the outside deck is breathtaking! We were right on the Hudson River, overlooking two beautiful bridges. We were greeted with an offer for a sample of any of their delicious chowder. I tried the Lobster Chowder, and my... More

We had our first meal in Poughkeepsie at River Station restaurant. It was lovely sitting out on the front terrace in the setting sun. There was no one greeting or seating patrons when we entered the restaurant so we sat ourselves outside. We had to go in search of a server to place our drinks order but thereafter service was...

We came here with family and when we went in we got to taste the chowders, all great. We sat outside and enjoyed the shaded area. We loved the food and would return to eat their again. Another don't miss stop on the Hudson.

On the recommendation of an FDR tour guide, we made our way to the River Station restaurant on Main street in Poughkeepsie. What a charming location....set high above the Hudson in a quite area of town. Arrived around 6:30pm on a September Sunday evening without reservations and were immediately seated on the deck. Were offered samples of their homemade chowders... More
