We had a friend visiting from out of town and have driven by this location several times with a desire to go. The restaurant did not disappoint. We arrived early for our reservation and they willingly seated us. The location is lovely and easy to get to. The restaurant is well apportioned and you'd don't feel shoe-horned in like some...

Sometimes you just want white table clothes and flambeed duck. Such is the meal at the Ship Lantern Inn. Enjoy it.

Mike Foglia continues the tradition of delicious food and amazing service that he learned from his father and grandfather. The perfect spot for a quiet dinner with someone special or a joyous celebration with a large group!

I felt that I'd stepped back in time 30 years, to dining-out when I was a younger woman. The feel of Ship Lantern is that of a place a bit lost in time. A bit formal, a bit old-fashioned. The service is lovely, the staff warm, friendly and professional. No fault there at all. The food was good enough, and... More

Visit the Hudson Valley around Thanksgiving & Christmas & this is our "go to place". This year we are here for a bit in the summer and had dinner this past Saturday. It is amazing as they continue to serve such quality food. My husband had a fabulous Salmon and my Flounder was of the same quality as well.Look forward... More

We knew this restaurant has been here for years and always heard good things about it and we were heading to a show at the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie so it was our perfect opportunity to give it a try! We had 5PM reservations and without knowing beforehand there was a price fixe menu we could try and so we opted... More

The epitome of very good not great, Nothing about the visit was bad the staff was very professional and the food was about what you would expect. Not a disappointment but not a home run either. The quality of the food is high I just thought the preparation left something to be desires the ingredients weren't elevated

I have been going here to the Ship Lantern Inn for over 50 years and always receive excellent service and Outstanding food. ( Their Escarcot is the best ) Two of the waiters have been working there for over 57 years and are the best. Highly recommend the Ship to all - Dave

Ship Lantern Inn is the gold standard for the Mid Hudson Valley. The best service, bar none. Wonderful Choices. They have specials on top of specials. The swordfish with capers is my all time favorite. Great salad, desserts to die for. I have never been disappointed here as it is consistently great. My top recommendation to anyone looking for a...

On the way to tour FDR's home in Hyde Park, New York, we stopped at the Ship Lantern Inn for a quick lunch. We actually planned to dine at another nearby restaurant, but it was closed that day. Lucky us! After a quick Google search, we found the Ship Lantern Inn. Our party consisted of four adults and two kids.... More
