I was here for a large party. It started well the crabcakes were very good. As was the ceasar salad. then dinner came. I ordered the twin Lobster tails ($30). They were so overcooked that the melted butter did not even help. I was so angry & it wasn't just mine a friend also ordered it as was another friends... More

This place is right on the river and serves american pub food for the most part. They do have specials but it is a small and limited menu. It has a huge bar and having been here a few times it is best in the warmer months for patio dining. The food is satisfactory and the service is decent. I... More

We had a lovely time here at River Station and the view of the Hudson was phenomenal. We both enjoyed the chowder samples and decided the lobster and corn chowder was the best we've ever had. Our server was prompt and friendly, we would love to visit again someday.

Had lunch at the restaurant during a recent warm and sunny day. The deck offered views of the Hudson River and the Mid Hudson Bridge. The food is typical for bar food and was okay. There are soups you can sample when you walk in. There is upstairs and downstairs seating also available. The upstairs can be rented for special... More

I went here with a good friend recently. We were on a mission for seafood and a local cab driver directed us here. The first thing to catch our eye was the sampling of different chowders which I think is genius. The New England Clam was fantastic. We requested upstairs seating. It was quiet and cozy. The view of the... More

Visited this place over the weekend. While the view is outstanding on the outside deck, the food is only so-so. I did like the idea of the free samples of chowder. I tried the lobster and it was very good. That was a nice touch. Hubby ordered the ribs. Ribs were very good and did fall off of the bone,... More

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!
