Great side dishes with hundreds of beer choices. They make their own beer and even you can select a bunch of beer types which they have made and they bring them to you to try in shot glasses. Besides the atmosphere is great. The house and the garden is magical.

Although very popular, it's the atmosphere, the crowd and the brews that draw not the food that draws folks. Lots of students and families as well as a lively young bar crowd. I have been here several times and the food is fine with drink but otherwise very average and they spice it unpredictably. (spaghetti and meatballs with chili heat).... More

It used to be the bomb! The beer is still good but the food is terrible. Its just not what it used to be. The location is great, its clean and the service is good.

Good staple in New Paltz! It's a brewery and if you like beer this is the perfect place! They brew their own , sell by the growler ... The food is a step above pub menu & most people are happy with choices. I'm vegetarian so I find less choices. I've been to parties there upstairs and that's a good... More

We went there tonight. They changed the salads on the menu, so I ordered a different salad and made clear that it could not have any bacon on it as I am allergic to it. I should have just stuck with an appetizer for my meal. The cheese curds are fantastic. Half way through my meal, I tasted bacon and... More

This is the 2nd time we've tried this restaurant. There's a great choice of beers, as you'd expect. The food choices were mostly fried this or that. My beer battered chicken was good, but not exciting. Same for my husband's 3 wurst platter. I think this place caters more to the young family/college student crowd. It was early evening on... More

Good burgers, salads and chicken sandwiches with delicious beer at this New Paltz brewpub. Great place to take the kids. Lots of options on the menu.

We came into Gilded Otter after a long morning hike, so we were ravenous. The service was a bit slow, but the food came out quickly once we ordered. The beer was terrific. The food was good, but nothing that stands out. I had a salad with grilled chicken, and thought the dressing had too strong of a pomegranate flavor,... More

Very nice place to sit and have a pub style meal with some great tasting brew. We were seated very quickly, ordered our beers, but waited a log time to get our food served. Our order was lost in the kitchen! They made up for it by not charging for several parts of the meal, which more than offset the... More

The portions are very generous. I had the pulled pork and the ratio of pork to bread was perfect, leaning towards the meat side. Too many places give you much more bread than meat, this was great. The fries were alright, but
