The sign says best BBQ in the Hudson Valley- I haven't been to many more so I can't say whether this is true, but I have been to a lot of BBQ elsewhere and this is really very good food. Curiously eating BBQ when it's snowing outside and you're tired from a long day in the cold gives it a... read more

Came here with a group of friends for a gathering. Bar was full of bourbon selection, great draft availability and the bartender was welcoming. To top it off, the brisket and the beacon is top notch quality, 2 thumbs up, licking fingers!

Nice atmosphere, we like the decor, modern but cozy food is very good, if you don't, like me, go for smoked, there are many other options. mixture of people, popular with Bard students and locals

We went to Max's on a Sunday night. The restaurant decor feels cold and not very inviting. I ordered the ribs which were good...nice that they offer you your choice of 3 sizes. My husband's crab cakes were more filling than crab and did not taste like they were homemade. The cornbread that was brought to the table was delicious.... More

Since I'm from Memphis originally I can say this is very good and a great place to eat. Lots of choices, nice bar area. Lookout for the Dragon!

After a couple of positive experiences at this restaurant we developed a false confidence about it. Last night after an early movie we stopped for a quick meal. The wait staff was distracted and forgetful, the food barely warm and the brisket was dry and over-cooked. It was not especially crowded for a Friday night, so the staff shouldn't have... More

Little gem of a restaurant in Red Hook, NY. Was delighted with my choice of crab cakes. They weren't greasy and were light and delicious. My sides were collard greens which could have been seasoned more but were still delicious. Their white cheddar cheese mac 'n cheese was just "out of this world." The best mac 'n cheese ever. The...

My wife and I have been here MANY times over the years, and it became our go-to place for a quick delicious B-B-Q on movie night, or a Sunday afternoon/evening. We gave them the benefit of the doubt the last couple visits, perhaps an "off night," etc. I am very sad to say last night was the worst, and totally... More
