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

Fresh seafood and well prepared. The chowder is the best part. Usually 5 chowders to pick from, and you can get tastings or all of them in small samples. Good beer. Deck overlooking the river is nice.

Made arrangements for our son's wedding reception as we had enjoyed pleasant experiences previously. All I can say is the lobster was overcooked & dry & I've never felt more rushed & pressured before. Granted it was a small reception with less than 30 people, but they had plenty of time to prepare. We had the cake delivered from Caffe... More

I've been to River Station over the years many times. The food is casual, tasty and given in good quantity and with a pretty wide range of selections.

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
