I love this place for their cool atmosphere and their delicious rotisserie chicken dinners. I mean the chicken is YUMMY. The huge bar area is very cool. They usually have music on the weekends.

We recently got married at Hunter Mountain and decided to have our Welcome Dinner at Chicken Run at the recommendation of the chef at our Reception Venue (Hunter Mountain). Since virtually everyone coming to the wedding was traveling in from out of town, we were looking for some where to how our Welcome dinner that everyone could come to, relax,... More

This place looks typical from the street but once u walk through the inside the back is set up superbly. The stage, firepit, vollyball area all unexpected and make for a great hangout. The food is good too and our waitress Tracy did everything in her power to keep us happy. The clean layout and look to the place really... More

Wife was in the mood for chicken, so the name drew us in. The food and service will guarantee we will be back. The chicken gumbo soup was A+++, the marinated chicken and the fried chicken were both excellent, the only drawback being we ate so damn much we could not even manage dessert. The service was a bit of... More

The atmosphere is fun and casual. They had a band going, a fire pit and nice sitting area in the back. The ribs were FANTASTIC! We went for a rehearsal dinner and it was a great choice. Guests could mix and mingle, kids could run around in the back, food was delicious and there was s'mores on the fire pit.... More

Not very friendly waiter. Fried chicken hot and crispy, but no flavor. Coleslaw more like lettuce slaw, soft and unappetizing. Potato salad, no flavor. Two inch piece of cornbread, familiar mix taste. Rotisserie chicken as well as fried were black at the bone and not good tasting. Green beans and baked beans very mediocre. Just passing thru and will keep... More
