Description: The Hudson Water Club sits within a beautiful waterside setting, against sweeping views of the Hudson River. Inside, snazzy terrazzo tile, vaulted ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows make for tremendous use of the natural views of the river. The restaurant's cuisine is Contemporary American with a strong emphasis on seafood designed by our CIA trained Executive Chef Michael Dobias. Chef Dobias focuses on local ingredients and strives to feature seasonal items at their peak of freshness. Our diverse menus combine classic favorites with modern twists to be savored in surroundings of breath-taking river views and exceptional service and hospitality.

“Cool atmosphere, nice views, TERRIBLE service (non-existent service, actually)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Went here with a group of six adults in total. Enjoyed the live music a good deal (despite cover charge). Drinks were good, albeit pricey. The service was non-existent. Waited endlessly for service. Shockingly non-existent service - it was so strange. Also, there were tons of smokers so although we were outside on a beautiful night, the amount of cigarette smoke was a bummer.

I will give it a second chance simply for the live music, which is a blast, however if the service is terrible again, we will likely not return. Too many other businesses out there are hungry for our hard earned dollars and are willing to be attentive and welcoming.

“What a great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

This lovely restaurant situated on the banks of the Hudson River excelled. The occasion was an Anniversary Party for 40 on a Saturday night. The staff was outstanding- they greeted us as if we were friends. (We were guests and had never been there before.) The host and hostess for the party had not yet arrived but the staff quickly offered drinks and passed appetizers. There were at least six varieties and each was hot and delicious. There was also a lovely arrangement of humus, olives, pita and vegetables. Everything was fresh and good. Dinner was a buffet and delicious. The excellent service continued throughout the evening. We were impressed that that staff offered seconds on tea and coffee without being asked. We rarely see this when there are many to serve and especially when the servers are young. At 10 pm there was a lively band and it appeared that many in the restaurant had come for the dancing.

“Mother's day Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Just had mother's day brunch at the Water club. It was very good. Numerous choices from chicken, fish, pasta,breakfast foods, ham, vegetables, rice, salad, bread, etc. Also a large selection of desserts. They charge $8 for unlimited mimosas. The prices were decent and we did not leave hungry. The selection was large enough for everyone to be happy, including children. The view was great! The service was also very good. I would definitely recommend

“View, ambiance and wonderful attention to detail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

My non-profit held its annual event here - 100+ people. Raves all around from everyone. The food, the view, the attention that Monica and her staff gave were second to none. I've also come here with friends. While a bit pricey, it is well worth the trip! Drinks are top shelf and the margaritas can't be beat. Portions and generous and worth sharing. Pizza is wonderful. We've never felt rushed, and after a hard week of work, it's exactly what you need. The Hudson Water Club is a special treat, on par with some of the better restaurants in Nyack or across the river. If you want dinner with the kids, yes this is a bit expensive, but if you are looking for a relaxing night out, with no rushing from the waiters, and a beautiful view where you can decompress, the Hudson Water Club is the place for you. They took a hit from Sandy but are opening again in April - cannot wait till it reopens!

“Horrible Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

September of 2012 we had a wedding at the Water Club. Service was Horrible. Very unorganized. This was a small wedding of 22. We weren't expecting much, but a little time spent on us would have been nice. No tablecloths, tables throw around together, waitress kept hitting the cake table, & manager never stopped by to check on things. Very disappointing.
