My wife and I just finished hiking Minnewaska State Park and were hungry, so we stopped at the Guilded Otter. It was about 3:00 pm on Tuesday afternoon. I had the lobster special - a whole 1.5 # lobster, a starch, and sliced zucchini; price was $16.95 (not bad for a lobster dinner). My wife had a tasty salmon sandwich... More

Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Came in after a drive and a hike and we were ready to eat and drink. The food was quick and tasty! We came in on tattoo Tuesday and were supposed to get 10% off our check but it didn't show up on the bill and I didn't realize until after we left.

Visited the Gilded Otter in Oct 2016, and loved it. Haven't been here for a few years, but really enjoyed the beer and food. Great pit stop in the Gunks area.

I don't like to post bad comments but I have to say, I was very surprise! We just arrived with our motorcycle group (8) and was seated right the way. We order and it did take 45 mins to get our food. The restaurant was not busy. Everybody was surprise because the Kaiser rolls were cold. Hamburger ok but they... More

Had a weeknight dinner at this interesting Pub. Nice service staff; quirky menu with some really interesting choices. Tried a nice goat cheese salad and the Asian Salmon sandwich (which I thought was a dish, but was a sandwich). Both, very good; along with a nice bottle of J. Lohr chardonnay. We ate on the porch, and the view would... More

Of the beers I've tried, the maiboch is my favorite, and a really nice, rich, full, complex beer. The others are good, but nothing particularly great. You can get growlers and refills here, too. The food is your basic burgers/sandwiches/chips kind of thing, not bad, but great, either. Service is fine. One nice detail: Next to bathrooms there is a... More

The food was pretty solidly average. Can't really say anything bad about it, but can't really say it was amazing either. My husband tried two of the beers, he said one was meh, the other was pretty good (I'll try to find out later if he remembers which ones they were), but basically it was hit or miss. The service...

In the heart of college town! Fall is a great time to visit, but any time of the year this place is hopping. Menu is not too big, so all food is very good. Their three meat chile with cornbread is the best. Although I haven't had any, my husband and friends enjoy the IPA and locally brewed beer. Me... More
