“We go every year for our aniversay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

On May 22 is our wedding anniversary and we make sure to go to the Canterbury Brook Inn. We try to bring new people every year... We love the place. The food is very good. We had never had any problems withe the service r the food. We have asked the waiter or waittress for our food made differently then it says on the menue. They had no problem doing it. We have been going there for at least the 4 years. We have never had any problems at all. Last year we went with my sister and her husband. This year we are planning on going with some friends from work and the gym we go too. I really can't wait too go either. We have fun no matter with friends or by ourselves... We do see the owner and his wife every year too.

“Bad Service Bad Food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011

I read the reviews and this restaurant sounded like a nice place to take some well deserving cadets from West Point out for a nice meal. To sum it up...we all stopped by the drug store for a bottle of Tums for dessert! Mess Hall food was much better. Crab cakes should not be served at this place or the veal. They didn't even pull off the cheese fondu at $11 per person. Sad thing when cadets won't even eat it.

Waiters were rude when they did come by. Food was awful and I am from a big German family which was one reason we tried this place. I love good German food.

The restaurant was not romantic or quant. It looked like a pre-fab home from the early 80's. Not sure who would find this a nice place to eat or would want to experience their "service" again. Take a bottle of Tums and your own glass so they don't serve you tea in a wine glass with no refills. Really!

“Very nice. Food and service were both...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2010

Very nice. Food and service were both good. The crabcakes were excellent as was the scallop and goat cheese appetizer (yummm!) Nice to see the chef come through the dining room making sure everything was good. We would eat here again

“Great value, Good Service, Menu and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

We were very happy with our dinner. The specials and the $17.95 three course meals offered Tues-Thurs and regular menu made for a lot of attractive choices. We selected from the special $17.95 menu and were delighted. There was a good crowd of diners including tables of 2-8 among the 4 rooms and the patio overlooking a brook ( there is a main road beyond the brook). Service staff were plentiful and appropriately attentive. Whether you dress khaki casual or in a tie and jacket this is a place to dine for those visiting West Point, Highlands or Cornwall.

“A most enjoyable surprise, and wonderful dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2010

Given its proximity to Newburgh we were not expecting to find such a delightful spot.
It was a lovely evening so we ate out on the pretty patio overlooking a meandering stream. The service was first class and although our wine was slightly corked it was changed with grace. The food was interesting with pleasant taste surprises. The long island duck was cooked to perfection with a delicious accompanying sauce.
Certainly a restaurant I will revisit when in the area
