Large seating area. The service is fast. The food is better than most restaurants. Out of the many diners in the hudson valley. This is hands down the best.

One of the park rangers at Hyde Park recommended this restaurant. He raved about the wide variety of menu options and the huge portions. He was right. There are so many choices on their menu that it took us at least 15 minutes to decide...More
