If you are looking for an Applebee's experience then by all means eat here and pay through the nose for Sub Par food. For a family of 4 we spent $100 with tip. Food was salty, not seasoned and void of taste. The waitress couldn't stop talking about herself and the atmosphere is loud open and very diner like. For $40 dollars more we ate at Brie and Bordeux the night before and enjoyed fresh and savoy French cuisine from a Zagat rated restaurant. Even my 8 year old commented on the difference between the two restaurants. Should have simply gone back!

As guests of the Kaatskill Mountain Club, Van Winkle's is not only incredibly convenient since it's located in the hotel but incredibly delicious! Service is stellar -- from the moment you're greeted at the host stand to the waiter's attentiveness, it's all around a great experience.

Been here several times over the last two ski seasons. They have a very cute approach to service. It's half waitress /waiter, half self serve. Many people I have seen there love this! When you can't get a drink, or run out of water, or need a napkin or set up, you usually can just do it yourself. If you look around you can the find the bar, you can find where they put the napkins and set ups, it's all very convenient. The meal took so long I was thinking about going to cook it myself. But lo and behold it came, and by accident they cooked my burger right!

I told one of my guests to stick to the basics but she went off the farm and ordered the pasta bolognese. It really was nothing like the real thing.

While tongue in cheek a bit this review is serious. Good luck with this place. Very inconsistent.

Must try the Crab Cake! We also got to meet the Chef, which was very nice. Nice small selection of wines. The only minus I would say was the lack of ambience music in the dining room, which made other neighboring table's conversations louder than they needed to be. However, overall it was a YuM experience.
