I took a friend here for dinner recently. We got a table upstairs by the window. There was a beautiful view of the Mid Hudson Bridge and Hudson River. I ordered a glass of wine and received a nice full glass of Pinot Noir. Some places now give you a 1/3 glass so it was nice to get a full... More

Everytime I have been here its a problem. The food is always messed up and the service is mediocre. The bar is OK I guess. If they are busy, forget ordering food. It's like they have the new guys on the busy nights or something. Have bar rescue save this place someone!

Good for lunch and having a drink with friends. It's a typical bar...Had a unique setting with an upper level that over looks the river.

Nice place for basic food and drinks. Go in the spring when that first warm day hits to enjoy the views from the back patio.

Nice view, but the food was bland. I dislike giving restaurants a bad review just based on one thing ordered from the menu, but, my friend had crab cakes, or so we think that was what they were. A few bites, and she pushed her plate away. My chicken sandwich was a thawed piece of chicken, with lettuce, devoid of... More

This restaurant is located right on the Hudson River and has wonderful outdoor dining. The deck tends to be a little crowded but has enough room to get through to a table. The homemade potato chips are awesome, light and delicious! Food is fresh and tasty. The view is to die for!
