We were in town for the antique motorcycle show and swap meet, and were taking a break from riding to have some lunch. We got a small table on the patio with an umbrella. We started off with a draft beer and wine - both fine, clean glasses, etc. We split the Homemade Potato Chips (with sliced scallion tops, very tiny crumbles of bacon - but lots of them, and a bleu cheese dressing that was the same color as 1000 Island, but very tasty). They were very good - we ate the whole basket. For our entree, we split the French Dip with Grilled Onions and Potato Salad. The sandwich came on a nice chewy roll, although there could have been some more meat on it. It was quite tasty, especially dipped in the au jus. The potato salad was good as well. Two friends called to say they were joining us, and they let us move to a bigger table, and at the end, presented us with two checks, which was nice, even though we hadn't requested it. I would definitely go there again for a casual lunch.

I like the western coachhouse warm comfy feel. The food and service is very good. Dinners are reasonable.

Visited the coach house a couple years ago for St patty's day. Their corn beef dinner was a disgrace. It was honest to God slopped onto the plate, as if it was served in a shelter. I ordered fish, and the fish, if that's what you want to call it, came back on a oval metal plate, the ones chef use to finish proteins in the oven, with no garnish, no side, no veg, nothing. It was so grossly overcooked that the edges were curled up. the waitress, and older lady seemed to be annoyed and assumed I was on a special diet. There is no way we would ever go here again. no way no how.

After a day trip along the Hudson visiting Historic sites we had a late night craving for a good meal and some cocktails! Staying in this lovely small town Rhinebeck tucked away from much with its Boutique style stores and inviting village streets it was so great to find The Coach House :)
Truly satisfied us with its friendly staff,locals and 5star steaks and seafood that tasted so good! And cost much less then a 5 Star NYC Resturant we even had a bottle of Champange!
We will be back ASAP!

Great food (specialties are the London broil and Lasagna [even better, get the combo]). The place has been here for as long as I can remember - we used to go when I was a little kid. I still enjoy going here, friendly warm, old tavern type feeling. Not exactly a huge or progressive menu, but sometimes it's great to get some good comfort type food. Love the lasagna and London broil combo (chicken parm or turkey dinner are also good choices). Meals come with either soup (usually great) or a salad and your basic roll.
