For our first visit to New York City, we were looking for a quick, scenic trip out of Grand Central Terminal that would have us back at the hotel before dark. A late lunch on the deck at River Station followed by a little time in the riverfront park below was just the ticket. The roasted beet salad was over... More

We had not been here in a very long time to dine. This is a restaurant that has been in business many years. As always, the food was very good and the views from the outdoor deck added to our dining pleasure. It is certainly worth the very modest prices.

My husband and I had dinner at the River Station Restaurant, while visiting Hyde Park, last month. We were seated on the porch which faces the river, allowing us a wonderful view of the sunset on the Hudson. The food was almost as wonderful as the view, and the service was top notch. We will definitely return when we visit... More

We stopped for dinner on a summer Sunday evening after walking the Walk Bridge for a few hours. Arrived at about 7:30, had only a 10-minute wait for a table on the outdoor deck. Deck faces the river to the west, and therefore the setting sun. When we arrived, screens were in place to combat the sun glare, but as... More

This seems to be one of those places that figures we got the view, we don't have to have anything else or try very hard. When you cant cook a veggie burger without burning it, something is wrong. Mine arrived so black on the outside I had to basically scoop the inside out. My friend's beef burger, which she ordered... More

Nice view. Parking free. Food pretty good. We expected service to be slow because of Mother's Day but my son got the wrong burger. It came loaded with mushrooms. He hates mushrooms so ate none of it. My daughter ordered peach tea. She got regular tea at luke warm temperature. She told them it was warm and the girl said... More

Had lunch there last Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed it. Sampled some of the wonderful chowders as we entered the restaurant and they were all wonderful. Had the Dirty pastrami for lunch which was very good. Sat upstairs with a nice view of the river. Highly recommend this place...

Great view, great service, great beer selection and super tasty chowder! It was snowing outside with cheesy Christmas music playing inside and I still loved it! Stop in!

The river station has the best New England Clam Chowder in Dutchess county. That makes it worth a visit. I had soup and half sandwich lunch . Grilled Chicken sandwich was good as well. View across the river is great in fall. Interior decor is kinda worn.
