This was our third visit over the last year or so. All for lunch. We arrived on a Saturday for a late lunch. We were seated right away and quickly visited by our waiter. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and the taps. We had the pork sandwich with a side of greens and the sauerbraten sandwich with their slaw. Both were delicious but the sauerbraten rocks. Tender meat with a slightly tangy and rich gravy. We also ordered a side of their house cut fries. Very good served with a spicy mayo. Highly recommend Gunk House to anyone seeking more than the run of the mill fare .

Went with my son, a CIA student. Good call. Authentic German food cooked local, as organic as possible and seasonal - most often.

The Croquettes will fill you up with yummy goodness. Share. I'm a short rib fan, so I got the German Short Ribs. Huge portion. Well prepared. Sauerbraten style was a bit tart, but still excellent. To be honest, I forgot what my son ordered but I do remember we saved room for Apple Strudel, which was great. We left more than full and very satisfied.

Not sure about the mariah34654 review. We did not experience any of that attitude. The restaurant is run by husband and wife. The feeling of the dining room is rustic, sort of a "drop this place in a ski resort" sort of feel. I saw many families with kids there as well as a strong bar crowd, so I think it is a good mix.

We will go back. I recommend making the trip to the Gunk Haus when in the Hudson Valley area.

Warm atmosphere, very inviting. Manages to feels rustic in an urbane way. The bar has a varied selection of beer and cocktails, and some creative beer-based creations, like "beernog" (stout and eggnog, actually very good). There's a big table in the bar area where you can play board games. Seems like a good place for families or for couples, and perfect for a cold winter night.

Everything was wonderful. They have great food, beer, bakery in house. The only thing I would suggest is having bars at the. Toilet for my 90 year old father who could not get up by himself. Have been 4 times in 2 months and can't wait to go back!
