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.

Overall we had a good experience. The host was a little gruff. The outdoor area was busy but has a nice view of the river. Chicken Bruschetta was juicy and delicious. Sandwich was a little skimpy on the fries for $11.50 The Mediterranean Salad was refreshingly different. My husband loved it. The ladies room off the bar has to be... More

An affordable menu. I had the Rib Eye done black and blue the chef did a great job. Our server, Candace, told us about the location and its attractions. I recommend you sit on the patio, check out the sunset, have some adult beverages and enjoy your time.

We went after taking a walk over the hudson and enjoyed a good lunch. The do offer a variety of choices and my wife loves their soup, unfortunately I can't because of an allergy. The view of the hudson and relaxing atmosphere was exactly what we needed!

I feel as though I can give River Station a thorough review because not only have we eaten dinner there many times over the last 2 years, we also held our rehearsal dinner there. We love the food - everything (especially the seafood) is delicious and there is something on the menu for everyone. The bar scene downstairs is fun... More

Lovely place to sit and enjoy the view, but the food was not good. I ordered the lettuce shrimp wrap and took two bites and had enough. The tiny baby shrimp (likely frozen) were smothered in some kind of sauce that left a bad taste in my mouth. Hubby's turkey club was weak and the bread was very ordinary if... More
