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

We were looking for the Hudson Walkway and came across this restaurant. Great view. Lunch was excellent. The lobster corn chowder was very good.

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!

Lots of great character to this location with a great view of the river and bridge. Food was outstanding... service was as well. Prices were a bit high but reasonable for what we got. Group of 6 of us for work. I would come back again for sure.

This restaurant was recommended to us for the view of the Hudson River. My husband ordered a seafood platter which he was unable to eat. It all smelled fishy, he couldn't identify the type of fish that was served, the scallops were rubbery and smelled bad and the lobster tail was flavorless and small. I had a salad with two... More

good for drinks, watch the bridge lights turn on but food is mediocre. Just a good stop but not for dinner.

We went to River Station our first evening in the Hudson Valley. We sat upstairs in a room with lovely picture windows and a view of the river. Unfortunately, that's the only nice thing I have to say, We noticed many dirty tables left uncleared. They remained that way throughout the evening. We ordered our dinners, and started a very...
