I enjoy going to the gilded otter to try their craft beers. I love the blueberry flavored beer the best. There is a patio to eat outside if you like, which is nice to do in the warm weather. The food is good at the otter. And it's right in the center of town. It's near the rail trail as... More

Visited here recently with the BF for a lunch after hiking all morning in Mohonk preserve. The BF got a margarita pizza, which he liked. I got a veggie burger that I was unimpressed with, as the bun was dry and the toppings relied too much on onions for flavor. If you're really craving a good but unusual beer, though,... More

Nice bar and restaurant. Selection of craft beer is very good and rotates. We had burgers, grilled chicken and salmon. All very good. New Paltz is a neat small town.

We were on holiday in the area and decided to stop in New Paltz for lunch. Maybe it's because it was a Saturday but the main through-road was jam-packed with traffic all the way. It was a bit stressful to say the least, so it was with some relief that we turned into the Gilded Otter car park on the... More

Almost didn't go to the restaurant because of some of the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. Salad with chicken strips was very good. Hamburgers and fries were also very good. The fries were different sprinkled with sea salt. Our server was great. Prices were reasonable. Parking was easy. Overall a good experience.

We were there for a family lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The beer menu is impressive and the wait staff knowledgeable. If you want a brand name beer, don't go here. The only beer brewed is on premises. They will bring a sample of beers for you to choose, and more than likely you will find one you like. The... More

Nice from outside, the downstairs bar is cool and spacious. Wish I just had a beer and not the bogus "Angus" burger. Asked for medium-well, got an overcooked, dry, flavorless blob of grey meat.

My wife and I arrived late one evening, not yet very hungry due to a late lunch, and only pounced on the Otter as we realized that we had to get food before all the restaurants closed. Considering that it was a Saturday night in July, it seems that the local restaurants simply don't stay open very late. I tried... More

This is the cliche place for New Paltz residents to bring out-of-towners for lunch. It has a fantastic location by the Water Street Markets and the Walkill River. And the food is excellent. Also, not only do they brew their own beers, but sodas as well.

We came to the Gilded Otter for lunch on a very hot and busy day. Beat the crowds and got a table on the patio. It was shady, so with the occasional breeze, it was pleasant. Be aware the outdoor tables are basically picnic tables, so no backs on the chairs. It was fine, though we found it more comfortable... More
