Very pleasantly surprised. Stopped here on our way to Windham. Lovely waitress and knowledgeable about the beers. We both had Paninis which were fresh and flavorful. My husband had the Sofa King Lit, a double IPA, it was smooth and creamy.

I hate this place with a passion. If you don't mind really loud almost bar like atmospheres go for it. And if your taste buds are intact, stay clear of the food.

We visited the RVW Brewing Company for lunch with our pups after a long hike. The food and beer were really good, but we didn’t get the full RVWBC experience. The outdoor seating does not have table service, so we couldn’t get beer flights. If...you sit outside, you have to order takeout. My husband was only able to try 2 beers because they were full size, not flight size. I didn’t know that dessert was an option. We were handed the lunch menu to order from with no dessert on it. I would have loved some of that chocolate cake that is pictured on TripAdvisor. That being said, our lunch was very tasty Italian! I had the eggplant parm sub and my husband had the chicken parm sub. The bread was a perfect blend of crusty on the outside and soft and toasty on the inside. Our fries and mozzarella squares were hot and crispy. My husband really loved the Kaaterskill Krush hazy IPA. I would go back if table service were offered for the outside seating or if we didn’t have the dogs and could eat inside.More

Stopped in right as they opened on a hot Saturday after attending a graveside service from out-of-town. Excellent, friendly service, reasonable prices, clean restrooms, adequate parking. Tasty selection of drafts and excellent pizza.

I had the pleasure of stopping here after a long day of taking photos. The beer was excellent and the food was delicious. I wish I would have stayed longer to try more of the menu. Maybe another time!

My third visit was as good as my first. This time, we were a party of two. We were trying to get into a different restaurant without reservations and, being a bit later in the day as usual we were unable to score a table....From the parking lot of THAT restaurant, we called "Rip" and the hostess said they were really busy but would hold a table for two for us. She didn't even ask our names. Upon arrival, that lady asked if we were "the people who called earlier". We said we were and she said, "I thought so" and escorted us to our table. That young lady is what I'd call a five-star hostess. I wish I had gotten her name. As for the usual? Really good service, attentiveness, food really good, prices fair, and brew pub beers. You could do much worse. Visit and enjoy.More

Stopped in for a brew while cruising through upstate NY. The beer was excellent so I brought some home. Friendly staff and their pizza looked awesome too. I bet it is very crowded during their peak season.

Waitress nicely waved us off ordering the eggplant parm and steered us to the wings, the "steak and shrimp surf and turf", and an excellent wrap. We were staying next door at the Red Ranch Motel during a visit to see Katterskill Falls, so it...was nice to be able to literally walk to this brew pub and not have to worry about how many drinks we consumed ;>)More

My heading says it all - this wasn't fine dining and I would have like to have seen a less Italian-based menu, but the broccoli rabe was expertly prepared - could've been a lit less salty - and the burgers were just fine. Very good...neighborhoodsy type place.More
