“Good food and service, wish we could have stayed for the Jazz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

This is a nice place. We ate in the pub room as it was during the week off season. Here we got to listen to the locals at the bar where everyone really did know each others name. Bar tender was friendly and funny.

Thanks for telling others about your experience at our Pub. It's here locals mingle with tourists from all over the world over great food and drinks, including 13 craft beers on tap. This is the part of Kindred Spirits that has a fireplace, pool table and juke box, not to mention an Off Track Betting parlor. The Pub is fun and we're glad you added to the friendly atmosphere.

“Great Jazz for a local establishment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We went over July 4th weekend. We just had drinks and some mediocre appetizers. What actually stood out was the quality of the live music being played. It's worth stopping in for a drink.

We're glad you stopped in and enjoyed our Jazz ensemble. We do have some of the best musicians in the Hudson Valley - and sometimes the world - performing every weekend. We've been lucky to have the likes of Dave Holland, Malcolm Cecil, Jimmy Cobb, Roger Kellaway and others with us. We've updated our menu and hope you'll find the appetizers more appetizing!

“A very special evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The food in this restaurant is satisfying and well priced but the real attraction for us was the music. We expected "background" music but instead found ourselves treated to sophisticated jazz reditions by three highly experienced professionals. Unexpectedly, we ordered more drinks and stayed for the second set. First rate.

We are so happy folks like you discover us because there are not enough people who appreciate the kind of ensemble Jazz we offer. It makes us play to our highest potential when you are listening and enjoying the music. You are welcome anytime!

“A Mountain Retreat with Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We try to go here every summer, stay at the Catskill Mountain Lodge, and eat at Kindred Spirits. Last summer, the chef offered to make me something different from the special they were offering, geared more to my taste. And it was wonderful! The food is excellent here, whether it's dinner or breakfast. To my husband, who is a jazz fan, the best part of coming here is listening to great music! Every time we've been there, the music has been wonderful -- excellent musicians who somehow come to this place in the middle of nowhere. The owner is one of the musicians, and he is really talented, too. It is such a happy and friendly place. We love going there, and hope to make it again this summer.

It's always great to see reviews from repeat guests because you know our place better than most. You've had breakfast, lunch and dinner with us, and seen the development of our Jazz performances. Thank you for taking time to let others know about your experience and for supporting our small, family run business.
