Our sons attend a nearby camp. On visiting day the place is a must stop for its soft serve ice cream. You wont be disappointed.

We make sure to include Dad's in any trip to Copake. The food is fresh and the staff are always so accommodating, even when I invent my own salad. They use fresh ingredients, make great burgers and their malteds are a real treat. Definitely worth the stop!

Just had lunch at Dads after a bike ride on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. Growing up in New Jersey I know diners. Dad"s is great, a real throwback. Nostalgic decorations, attentive staff, good food at a fair price and extremely clean. Will return next time we ride on the rail trail

Dad's is a great place. I often know half the people who are dining while we are there. Food is good, wings are great. Nachos are my sons' favorite! The wait staff are so friendly! It's a truel Columbia County experience! It's real with no pretensions. Just nice people and good food.
