Spring is here, and if you are looking for a casual spot with a beautiful view of the Huson River, this is the right place. The restaurant is open seven days a week, for breakfast and lunch, and brunch on Sunday. They have two parking lots, for the restaurant use ONLY. If you plan a walk along the... read more

We had the chowder and a grilled romaine wedge. The view of the Hudson and the bride made it gray and the food and service were good. Would go back....when in the area.

Imagine an old fisherman's pub right on the waterfront, but add the glamour of finely prepared food and unigue local brews. That's the experience you'll find at the River Station in Poughkeepsie, which is a short drive from both Marist College and a few select hotels. They will welcome you with a sample of their homemade chowders, so be sure... More

Have been there there about half a dozen times in last few months and have yet to have a bad meal. Love the chowder bar and the lobster corn is my favorite. While I think the ceasar salad is not the best the croutons tasted fresher the last time. My favorite thing to eat there is the steamers, tender and... More

Today is St. Patrick's Day March 17, 2015. I am not one who normally post these reviews, but I felt it is important to know what kind of owner you were dealing with at the Riverstation. I am a long time Poughkeepsie resident who frequented this establishment despite the subpar food and the bar like atmosphere. If it was not... More

We were introduced to this place by friends when we first arrived in Poughkeepsie and love to return often. The ownership, manager and staff are friendly, helpful and very accommodating. We've attended events, watched college football and just hang out on a Monday night for burger night enjoying the place each time. If you like chowder it's even better!!

The restaurant interior is dated and comes across as more of a bar with tables on the first floor, upstairs for events or over flow and outdoors (deck). Of the three I would choose the deck (assuming good weather) because you have a great view of the Hudson River and bridges. The food is at best typical bar food, there's... More

Our group was there on a Friday night for drinks and dinner. Everyone was very accommodating. Service was excellent. The ribs, monkfish, steaks and fish & chips were all very good to excellent. It's a bit loud, particularly when there are a few large groups there. We were seated with a great river view, and the city was having its... More
