The Paddock has continued their outdoor dining options into the colder weather. Heaters have been added to the dining area and they provide a comfortable and socially distant setting. The food continues to be excellent and the menu offers a range of choices for everyone....During these challenging times it is appreciated to be able to enjoy a meal with family and friends in a safe environment.More

I went to P.C. Paddock for an early dinner on Thanksgiving. I had ordered my food ahead of time, brought my dog home and then returned for my meal. The food was ready when I returned. I had told the hostess when I ordered it...that I would either bring it home or sit there and enjoy my meal. I decided when I returned for my meal that I would eat outside on the patio . I was given the meal in a to go box, shown a table next to the only couple seated outside to share a heater with them. I was given plastic utensils. No offer of a plate was given to me. I proceeded to eat the pan seared scallops. The scallops were not hot and totally bland tasting. The matchsticks vegetables did not even have the flavoring of salt and pepper. I was only asked how was my food as the hostess walked to the table next to me. I said "not good" The hostess did not come to my table to see what was the matter with the food, nor did anyone else. When she walked by my table a second time I again said this food was expensive and horrible tasting. She said she would tell the kitchen. I sat there eating my rice. I was there approx. an hour, no one came to my table to see if they could do something about my food. I paid 26.00 for the meal included a five dollar tip when I ordered the food. This was Thanksgiving, their lack of attention to my table was appalling!!! The only good food was the pumpkin pie that I ordered for dessert. I did not receive an apology then nor did I when I called the restaurant upon my arrival home to voice my complaint again. With only one other table filled outside, theres no excuse that they were extremely busy then!!!More

We have visited PC Paddock for lunch several times this summer. It's outdoor dining area is set up very nicely with well spaced seating nestled among a variety of large bushes which include very tall Cana Lilies. There is always something interesting on the menu....Service is friendly and attentive, especially when Gerry is our server.More

I went to P.C. Paddock because the outdoor dining looked relaxed and friendly. We were seated right away even though we did not have reservations. This was a plus. However, once we were seated we watched as several wait staff attended two tables directly behind...us, walking by us as though we were invisible. After 20 minutes I asked one of the passing waitstaff if she knew who our waiter was. She said she didnt but she would take care of us “for now”. We gave her our order, Cucumber coolers and shrimp cocktails and off she went. We still had menus on the table and after another 25 mins. No drinks and no appetizers and No water. Another family was seated in front of us and they received waitstaff attention right away And they even got drinks. Thats when we tucked our tails between our legs and left. But not before speaking with management who apologized but same Management was out on the patio watching us because she is the one who seated us. I dont know, I felt like it was due to us being the only People of color in a White establishment I am so disappointed in America right Now.More

When you came for outdoor dining at our restaurant we had just re opened for outdoor dining. Yes, we were extremely busy that night and wait staff was trying very hard to keep up with all of our customers that came out to support us....More

Went Sunday 6/14/20 at 3:30 pm and had reservations. Was excited to eat outdoors on a beautiful day! Tables were 6 ft a part outdoors and main patio less than 1/2 seated and we passed about 6 empty umbrella tables. But we were taken on...the other side of the yard to a make shift patio covered in a low ceiling under a white tarp near a dog! I immediately asked the hostess to change our seats because we do not want to eat by a dog or under the hot tarp. She firmly refused "NO THIS IS YOUR SEAT!" I argued there are a lot of empty tables and still NO change! We should have left then because it just got worse! We waited over 1/2 hour for a stale cold bun that we had to ask for, was never offered a 2nd. Waited 1 HOUR for our OVERCOOKED ENTREES, UNDERSIZED smoked prime ribs! The couple with the dog left after 1 1/2 hours wait and still NO Dinner! Only positive outcome is we complained to the owner, who saw our food, and seemed genuinely embarrassed and didn't charge us. Disappointingly I went home and cooked dinner. Won't be back!More

We always got a great meal dining at PC’s Paddock before and it is just as good now that we get it by take out! The decor is always wonderful, changing with the holidays- I love it around Christmas! The lights always make it feel...cozy. Our daughter has Celiac and they offer delicious Gluten Free options...she LOVES the ribs! Great place to go - whether it be as a family, for date night or even just for appetizers (love the steamers in white wine and the artichoke dip) and drinks! Best wings and all things!More

We picked up a couple burgers and some Mac & Cheese for lunch today, to go. We’re not usually take out people as it never tastes as good as in the restaurant but our burgers were just as great as when we’ve had them in...the restaurant. And our 3 year old is devouring her Mac & Cheese like usual. Everything was still hot when we got home and just as we ordered it! Thank you!More

Plain and simple the best wings I've had in the Hudson Valley. Signature "Asian Cowboy", are definitely worth a shot.

Was wonderful sitting outside on a summer's eve. Should have put a bit of mosquito spray on though. There was a strong smell of garbage from the dumpster on one side, so they happily moved us. Salad was fresh and delicious. Ribs were a bit...spicy for me, but overall very nice night.More

Yes they do. They are marked with a GF on the menu. I am very comfortable going there with our daughter who has Celiac. They are great at working with you for options.
