“Must order the WINGS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We have a house nearby which we visit nearly every weekend so we've eaten at VanWinkle's several times (both at the bar and in the dinning room) with consistently great service and food. The salads with fruit and nuts are always a staple for me but the chicken wings are truly the best; so tasty and flavorful we have friends that must always come here. Eating at the bar is a pleasure (thanks Joe!) as the service is sometimes faster (when the dining room is crowded) and you can always have your favorite sports on the TV.

“Good Service, OK food for vegetarians. Not many options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I went here as part of a package deal while staying at the Kaatskill Mountain Club. The service at the restaurant was prompt and courteous. We were quickly seated and brought our menus. The decor of the restaurant was interesting. There are large pictures telling the story of Rip Van Winkle on the wall. The bar area is near the main entrance of the restaurant followed by table seating in the middle and the kitchen at the far end. The set up reminded me of some nicer diners that I have visited in NJ. The food options are plentiful, but being vegetarian, I was rather limited. I ordered one of the specials (squash ravioli) which turned out to be a bit too sweet for my liking. Others ordered pasta as well, and despite having asked for it to be a spicy, it was still rather bland. This place overall is a very convenient restaurant and it may offer many options, but if you are vegetarian, I would suggest trying elsewhere.

The menu offers a wide variety of choices and the presentation is perfect. Everything ordered was delicious and we want to come back and taste everything!

“A small step above standard service fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Our waiter was enthusiastic, friendly and untrained. I wish somebody would invest in this well intentioned staff.

“Good stuff at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The crab cake and cajun shrimp appetizers were very good, and so were the entree's of duck, fish, and jerk-rubbed cornish hen.
