“Great hiking deserves great food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Just returned from a memorable stay in the ausable inn in keene valley ny. Although the establishment is better known for its great food (courtesy of ONE cook) we slept there as well for three nights. A verrry interesting experience: totally un frou frou , shared baths, and an authentic antique vibe ( only one lamp that worked, two "personal sized" fans for the three of us, dusty, above the restaurant/saloon). But we'd return there again in a heartbeat: great hiking trails abound, including some of the High Peaks of the Central Adirondacks; interesting mix of locals , hikers , and granolas;; superb food; friendly staff. More than worth the $$.

“Friendly and delicious after a long hike”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is the perfect place to eat after a day in the mountains. A grilled chicken sandwich and a couple beers on the porch is the best way to end a long day. And the staff is awesome!

“Good beer selection and hearty food”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Ate there on a Friday night and had to wait 90 minutes but could've made reservations, which we will do next time. A good selection of beer and better than average hamburgers are my usual fare here. If it's nice outside, great to sit on the front deck and enjoy the view, as the world goes by.

“Always good”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Great food, cozy environment. We always have a meal here when we are in town. The porch in the summer is nice too, but nothing fancy.

“Tasty hearty fare after a hard day's hike/ski/climb”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

There is a warm fire in winter which adds to the ambiance in this mountain village inn. Local beers are available on draft and there is a good bottled beer selection also.
Food is primarily pub appetizers, burgers and sandwiches and all are well made. I had the smoked trout appetizer that would make an entree in its own right. The chicken wings are also recommended but be warned - the sizzlin' ones are searingly hot and spicy!
We have always arrived early enough to get a table and receive prompt service but it appears reservations for dinner on weekends and holidays or for large groups is recommended.
