After a historical bus tour of West Point Campus we decided to have lunch at MacArthur's Riverview Restaurant at the Hotel Thayer. I had the Thayer Rueben Sandwich. It had a nice amount of shaved corned beef. There was little kick to the the Dijon mustard, which I liked. My friend had the Asian Salad topped with Edamame Beans. The... More

Elegant restaurant in the heart of the historic Thayer Hotel. We ate breakfast and dinner here and both meals were excellent. The breakfast buffet selection was good and the omelet station made an superb omelet. Dinner was also very good. The restaurant had outdoor seating option with river views. I thought the breakfast buffet to be a good value and... More

We stayed at the Thayer and had breakfast here our last morning. The dining room is beautiful with a view of the Hudson. Stone walls soar all around you and there are seats in the alcoves and archways. There is a menu service, but we chose the buffet ($19.95/per person). Fruits, pastries, eggs, breakfast meats and omelettes to order, all... More

We had the buffet breakfast on Saturday which was ok. However, I do not recommend the Sunday brunch. My kids wouldn't eat the waffles, so right there a red flag. The desserts were not worth the calories, not even a bite. Plus, for 40 per person really not worth it. I gave it a 3 rating because it is a... More

The Thayer opened in May 1926 and has a wonderfully historical ambience to it. You get to dine, see the portraits on the wall and enjoy some of the finest food anywhere with a great understated service. My search for the best burger seems to have come to an end. The burger had a rich and moist taste that is... More

We have just returned home from an amazing stay at The Thayer Hotel in West Point. To celebrate the last day of a family road trip going from NJ to Vermont and West Point then back to NJ, we ate at MacArthur's with our two children ages 14 and 9. The food was delicious and the service (thanks to Sandy)... More

Wonderful food and peaceful atmosphere. Friendly staff. We had breakfast and dinner there and enjoyed both meals. Breakfast buffet would be nice if you like buffets. We preferred to eat a smaller meal.

We had Sean, a very friendly and correct waiter. The white wine he served was to warm, the dish he served was not warm enough. I think the kitchen failed and the wine storage is insufficient. When we went up to the lobby we asked the desk person for the price of breakfast. She told us to go down and... More

The property is in a beautiful spot, with stunning views of the Hudson. We had a family dinner to celebrate a golden anniversary, and was disappointed with the experience overall. We ate outside on the patio which was not very busy. There was a wedding below, which may have overwhelmed the kitchen. Our server was not familiar with the menu,... More
