On route 32a leading up into the mountains there is an old lodge, now being updated, with an old restaurant that has also been updated. It is still rustic, on a mountain road, with open air dining for good seater. Inside there is a bar at one end that has OTB and its own enthusiastic clientele. On the other end is a logy restaurant area with open beams and high ceiling, a bar with lots of beers on tap, and a small bank stand with a tiny dance floor. We did not hear the band live, but the recording that was on shows they play great old fashioned cool jazz.
The service was friendly. The food we had, at lunch time, was very nicely prepared. I had a splendid dish of mussels and clams far diavolo, with sauce that tasted like someone who cared cooked it. Nicely spiced, but also with overall good flavor. Nights the menu includes several steaks, which we did not try but someone else reported to be quite good.
There are many restaurants in the area, and some super ones in Hudson, but this is certainly a good friendly place we are likely to visit again.
