Fun place, great food, amazing service!

I called looking for reservations for a group of 27 and was pleasantly surprised to talk to ALANA, a great employee who went way above and beyond to help me plan an outstanding night for my group. She suggested a private room, which was large yet cozy and warm with a fireplace. The food was... read more

We're locals but never got around to checking this place out until the other night. After eating there We will definitely be going back. Went there on Saturday night. There was a big crowd in the area it being a ski weekend. Never thought to make a reservation and the place was packed. We were able to find a couple... More

We love ChickenRun. The food isn't fancy but it's good. The ribs are usually excellent, but weren't this weekend. This is the only time we would say that the food wasn't up to par. Hopefully it was just an off night. The bar is great and there is live music on weekends. In the nice weather there is a fire... More

I stopped by the Chicken run on the way back home along the back roads of upstate NY from Oneonta, and saw the place and decided to stop for lunch. Reviews were good on Trip advisor so I felt good. The place is clean, and staffed well with very nice people from the Bartenders to wait staff. Good variety on... More

This restaurant did a great job of serving our large group of 25-30 on a Tuesday evening. The food was very good as was the service. Give this place a try if you are in Windham New York. Our only problem was parking because of deep snow.

We were a party of 12 and they managed us perfect. The food was delicious. The restaurant is very family friendly. The ribs were a big hit.

My family and I ate here on our ski trip to Windham. The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. The place gets crowded, so if you have a bigger party, try to make a reservation.

Food was good. We ordered chicken. Nothing special. But on the way out I saw some very good looking steaks. Wonder how they would have been?

We had an excellent experience at Chicken Run this past Saturday (1/3/15). The food was excellent, and much better than I would expect from a casual restaurant in the Catskills. I had one of the steaks and it was delicious, and the salad was also great. The kids loved the bowl of popcorn put at the table when we first... More

We had a great experience at Chicken Run. The food-particularly the homemade chicken soup, ribs & chicken dinners were delicious. Our server was personable and efficient. Also enjoyed the live music.
