Great, but room for improvement

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... read 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

I went for a snack and I knew that the view would be rewarding. Rustic, old fashioned bar. Friendly staff and attentive. I ordered the original Mushroom, Swiss burger. Delicious! A swiss mushroom gravy burger on a soft bun. I ordered the fresh potato chips instead of fries and that was well prepared. In addition, I was entertained by an... More

We ate here on the upper floor, waited a while on a very busy Saturday evening, but it was worth it! The view was much nicer upstairs and seemed like we were at a different restaurant. Tried a sample of the chowders, delicious and I'm not a huge fan. The train was neat! Wait staff very friendly. Natalie was our... More

Great river view and good food. I prefer to dine outside when I eat here. Consistent quality of food and service. Can be a bit noisy, but enjoy the casual atmosphere.

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.

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 river before... More
