We decided to follow all the dining and dish recommendations that our innkeeper at the charming Meadowood Bed and Breakfast told us about. Wow...Cool vibe...friendly attentive staff. Short ribs (to die for), onion rings, trout, hanger steak...even the bread excellent!

This place is so good we went back twice! Recently spent 5 days in Phoenicia for my bday weekend. We had our first meal at the Peekamoose in the tavern area. It is an adorable rustic restaurant. Each room has almost a different vibe. The tavern was great. Deanna was the bartender and server- she was so friendly and attentive!... More

Peekamoose is not what you'd expect in Big Indian, NY -- it is a wonderful surprise with inventive cuisine that assembles surprising flavors and super fresh ingredients. The local serving crew is friendly and understands the offerings well. The Hudson Valley is turning into quite a food haven and Peekamoose has led the way.

Off the beaten path but we'll worth the trip. My party of 5 was very pleased. The warm bread with her bed butter sets the tone. Delicious. The best grilled octopus I have ever tasted. It is marinated in olive oil for two hours prior to cooking. It was incredibly tender and exceptional. The braised short ribs were the best... More

We ended up at this restaurant because the one we originally went to was closed. I can't tell you how much this happy accident gave us one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed. The food was so beautifully plated and tasted so good!

Hadn't been there for a while. The menu has been nicely updated lots of seasonal and local offerings. All competently and deliciously prepared. Great selection of wines by the glass and a slew of draft beers. For a Thursday eve the main dining room was buzzing.

Absolutely charming atmosphere - fairy lights, cool art work, rustic enchanted forest. The hostess and our waiter were professional and warm - very informed about the food and how it was prepared. Food so fresh - locally sourced, beautifully prepared and presented. It was a lazy Sunday night so we had a little cozy room all to ourselves - excellent... More

We had 10 people for a birthday party on a Saturday night. The food was served with almost no wait between courses, (although it was another pushy waitress, constantly wanting us to order more). The food was above average, the steak was cooked as ordered, but the fish with bacon didn't have a great response. The onion tart, is not... More
