6 for lunch and 4 of us feeling sick after. Food was bad. After receiving menus, waiting, ordering drinks, waiting, informed 2 drinks were not available, waiting, receiving drinks, waiting, when attempting to order we were told they lacked ingredients for most of our selections. We ordered from what they had but then received one incorrect entree and one side was missing. Too expensive for the low quality and included gratuity was an insult after apathetic service. Past reviews seemed positive but it seemed that now none of the staff or management care about quality.
I have been going here for over a decade & always loved it. Went there yesterday and I have to say I was very disappointed. They completely change the menu, and took off many of their staples. The Lobster bisque was supposed to have chunks of lobster in it, there was none and it looked like it came out of a can and it was $13. The tomato and fresh mozzarella appetizer was not good at all. My companion had an alcoholic drink with seltzer in it, and the seltzer was flat. My beer was warm. The service was good. I just hope they can straighten everything out and get it back to the way used to be. We always loved the place
While the restaurant itself had unfortunately missed a shipment and had very little to offer in terms of food, the beer and the staff absolutely made up for the lost product. Hands down the highlight of New Paltz and if you have any interest in having fun, this is the place to go.
Great place for beer and high quality pub food. Chill vibes, artfully decorated, nice variety of seating options (two patios) and very good service. The fish tacos were amazing!
It was Insanely fun. The Loaded Shrimp Nachos were big and a very filling appetizer for two people. My friend and I actually tried all of the drinks with Vodka and Gin and they ranged from fruity & sweet to creamy but light so there were tons of drink options. It’s a lot of fun and the Pool Room is cool. The rustic look with splashes of modern make it a great and comfortable atmosphere.
Food wasn’t good at all. The chicken quesadilla, pulled pork sandwich was the worst thing I’ve ever tasted. Lobster bisque was good but it looked like something out of a can that was heated in a microwave(I’m sure they’re not the only restaurant that does this), but it was obvious. They do have a great selection of beers. Best things about my dinner there were the beer and the tap water. Wait staff was friendly and provided good service.
I’ve been coming here for years as a New Paltz student and alumni and the food has always been amazing. My most recent visit left me incredibly disappointed. The menu has been cut by more than half, including the beer list, which is what they were known for. I spent the entire day hyping up this place for a group of coworkers and friends, only to be presented with mediocre food and limited options. I’m not sure what happened to my once favorite restaurant but I’m sad to say I will never be returning after this experience.
great service! food was okay. good selection of beer. pool room attached pool table by the hour is a bit pricy though
Have been here a few times for lunch/dinner. It’s a rather simple menu of food options but everything I’ve tried has been delish – burgers, cheese steaks, pulled pork sandwich. Love the sweet potato fries in place of regular fries. My only complaint here is that the service can be slow at times, though part of the reason for that could be staffing issues. Food always comes out hot and fresh.
No longer has a brewery but good bar grub with a good selection of beer in a relaxed atmosphere
