“Bon appetit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Went to mariners harbor for my birthday. Btw. Birthday dinners are free up to $20 if you go there the day of your birthday. Just bring your license for proof. I had a delicious swordfish for my dinner with salsa on a tortilla shell with some cabbage and an avocado drizzle. It was the best dinner I had in a while. You can sit outside or inside in a/c. Not a big menu but the food and atmosphere are good.

“Beautiful spot...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is a lovely place to go if you're looking for a lovely outdoor dining experience... Located on the Rondout Creek and in good weather a great place to eat, drink and take a walk along the Rondout - and there are several other places along the walk to stop and enjoy. The service there was good - not overly attentive yet there when you need them with a smile. There are nice outside and indoor bars and tables under canopies should the weather change while you're eating. The food as cited in another review is mediocre which is a shame since the rest of the experience was lovely. The sea scallops were a bit overdone and the crumble topping soggy though flavorful. The rice was unremarkable. My friend had a lobster which was also overdone. The lobster bisque was more like tomato soup with some cream and a little bit of unidentifiable finely chopped seafood. The prices would be considered fair if the food was better but in this instance, a little overpriced. I don't understand why such inattention is paid to the food at such a lovely venue, unless, of course, they merely want to rely on the location to attract customers...which won't bring back return business as I plan to go back to the Rondout, but not for dinner at Mariners Harbor though I will probably stop in for a drink.

Thank you very much for the feedback about Mariner's. The Rondout District is extremely beautiful and we appreciate your kind words about the water front area of Kingston. We do pride ourselves on the quality of our food and service and I do want to apologize that the food was not what you were hoping for. We should have been more attentive and been able to rectify the situation before you left. We will look into the details you gave us and we are always striving to improve. Thank you again.

“Poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We made a reservation for 6:30 and was told no problem. When we arrived they told us our table would be ready in a few minutes. Waiting over 30 min. with 3 children is unacceptable when you have a reservation. Children's food came quickly, but out orders took forever and the prime rib was tough and the chicken parm. was overcooked- cheese was burned. One of the shrimp portions was so small I though it was child size. Very disappointed. Hadn't been there for a while and now I'm not sure we will go back.

The location of this place on the water is perfect. The wait staff did well, but the food was just mediocre.
