    We had no idea this place was here, and we're astonished when we walked in and found it packed. The food was spectacular, the wine list limited but adequate, and other than waiting just a bit too long for bread to arrive, the service was efficient and professional. Definitely headed back!

    Went to this restaurant after reading a feature in Westchester magazine. We went on a saturday night and the place was crowded which i saw as a positive. To begin, service was poor. They needed more wait staff for a saturday night with full tables. We had to ask for bread service and we saw our waitress once. Ok, so i chalked it up to a busy night, the food will be good....NO. Food was totally mediocre for all three diners at our table. Had the short ribs. They were okay but so bland. No creativity, just short ribs with mash. Maybe ad some borbon sauce, I dont know buts something please! Wife had pork. Totally blah. My duaghter had a veggie burger which she said was okay, very beany but for $14. Come on!! Would not recommend. Too bad, brewster doesn't have much on the restaurant end so was hoping this would stem the tide. Spend another 20 minutes in the car south if you want to spend $120. You may be able to get away with Kittle House if you sahre an app. Believe me NO comparison to this place!

    Priced as most restaurants in this area but unlike a lot of them , you walk away feeling it was worth it. Some funky dishes, like Cavatelli with butternut squash, raisins, nuts and ricotta was hearty and short ribs, tuna and steak, all hot and fresh. Ricotta and honey on crostini for app was delicious. Desserts small but plenty of choice and you are full anyway.! Drinks and local beers are interesting and very strong. Beware of that and enjoy. Gets a bit noisy, especially in bar area but was not a problem for us this night . All personnel were friendly and knowledgeable. Only comment: a couple dishes came out way later than others, and bus staff much too quick to pounce to clear. Go here. It's great.

    After reading a review some months ago, we intended to trek from Mahopac to try Clocktower. Restaurant week provided incentive. The three of us enjoyed our selections from the special menu: Appetizers were yummy - my Butcher Block had two types of cheese and two types of sliced artisan sausage with whole grain mustard and fig jam dunks. The grits with shrimp were delicious. Main entrees of lobster Mac and Cheese, and Shortribs were perfectly seasoned and moist in their lovely sauces. The lobster and Brie sandwich was a miss but the shoestring fries and argula salar sides were very nice. Homemade desserts, Brownies with vanilla ice cream, Apple Crumble, and Toffee sticky pudding with butterscotch ice cream were a perfect ending to a lovely lunch. We will definitely be back!

    Food was only moderate in taste and portions were small even for lunch. There appeared only one waitress for the entire place and although she was pleasant and efficient, she was overworked and service was slow. At this place, it was more about getting today with the other 8 women and catching up, then the food.

    I went to Clock Tower Grill for the first time this week for their Hudson Valley Restaurant Week menu, and it did not disappoint. The food is incredible-- seems like they start with quality ingredients and make the most of them. I highly recommend the duck and the cheese and sausage plate in particular.

    We went during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We live 10 mins away in Patterson and didn't know this place existed, but we sure do now! We went for lunch and the portions were large enough, I think, to be from the dinner menu. Shrimp and grits appetizer was delicious, as was the lobster mac and cheese. My husband loved his Thai shrimp salad as well. We will definitely be returning, hopefully soon!!

    The lighting was low, hard to see the menu, but we could see the food well enough. The servers were outstanding. The pumpkin gnocchi was very good. The butcher's block had sliced pork sausage for its meat, a couple of small pieces of cheese, mustard and compote, with 3 slices of toasted bread. It was different and tasty. Short ribs, the meat was very tender, the mashed potatoes excellent as well as the caramelized carrots. The meat was braised in bourbon, and it lacked flavor. I much prefer red wine. The perogies were very good and the caramelized onions were excellent. The sweet apple sausage, was a mixture of bbq meat and apples, interesting combination, but not too appetizing. We all had a different dessert and they were all delicious.

    We've had several wonderful meals here with great service. The menu has just enough choices for seafood and landlubbers alike. Scallops are amazing and the pork shank falls off the bone and melts in your mouth.Leave room for desert as there is always something yummy! Their craft beer selections are very complimentary to their food. Prices, portions, quality and atmosphere make this restaurant a winner.

    Dinner was enjoyable the chef had some usually dishes and quality was very good. The service was lacking, waiter staff was not attentive nor did they check in to see how you meal was going or if any thing else was needed. We had to ask anyone who went by for wine list, coffee and just didn't feel welcomed.

    The food was excellent and so was the service, although The food could have come out at a more leisurely pace. That being said, it was restaurant week so that may explain the hurry in serving. The only complaint is that it is so dark that I needed a flashlight to read the menu!

    We decided to try the Restaurant Week at Clocktower and were very pleasantly surprised. We thought the menu would be something other than the many wonderful selections Clocktower normally offer. Side-by-side with the menus, we could see they were all on the regular menu and our choices were superb. The desserts were fun as well, and proportioned very nicely.

    Busy at 8:00 p.m., but not crazy. Our waiter kept attending the table next to us who already had their food, but we were feeling pretty invisible. No acknowledgement/eye contact that we were even there, no water brought to the table, etc. After 10 minutes he came to get our drink order, no water, no bread yet on the table. Ticket time for drinks was about another 8 minutes, food was about 15 minutes after that; still no bread or water. The bread arrived via the waitress who had her own tables on the other side of the room, about 30 seconds before dinner arrived. I had asked the waiter where they were going to be showing The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and he said something to the effect of "just go down the stairs". Wrong information.

    You will only leave the Clock Tower Grill hungry if that is your aim. The servings of the generally hearty food are substantial. Our server suggested that we might want to order a number of appetizers for dinner and we didn't take her seriously. Fortunately, my entree was just as good for lunch the next day as it was for dinner the night before. I had their shrimp and grits appetizer, which was quite commendable--four very large grilled shrimp on a mound of grits that was impossible to stop picking at. Knowing I had an entree coming was all that kept me from demolishing it. As it was, I barely put a dent in the perogies and sausage. There was one clunker--an overly spiced elk chile but generally, we were happy with the food.

    We had dinner at the Clocktower Grill this Saturday, 10/4/14, and the food was amazing! The mushroom bisque was so creamy, warm and nutty. The butternut squash and panzanella salad served with the lamb chops was so good - I want to try to make it as my stuffing component this Thanksgiving. The sweetness of the squash coupled with the crisp bread and walnuts was unbelievable. For dessert, we ordered the "cookies and milk" sans the milk, and we received a plate of five of the most wonderful, warm, chewy and crisp pecan caramel cookies. I would buy a box of these cookies if I could! We love this restaurant and always receive good food, but this weekend it was just exceptional. I highly recommend it.

    I am used to eating out in NYC where you will find great food easily based on word of mouth and find places within walking distance. Well I live in Westchester and only eat in the city on a Thursday or Friday. So looking around Westchester on OpenTable I came across recommendations for this spot in Brewster. A 33 mile drive from White Plains... AND IT WAS WORTH IT! The food was outstanding and is a shining star that represents the best of Hudson Valley 'Country' Fare. Presented by a pleasant and informative wait staff the food is diverse and delicious. Highly recommend for Foodies or that special occasion. Will be back for sure! Keep up the good work!

    This was my 2nd time at Clock Tower Grill and while this time we went on a Sunday night when it was very slow and quiet, the food and service were as good as I remembered. I had the Scallops with Cheesy Grits, which was wonderful, and my companion had the risotto which she loved. I had the kale salad to start and it was great. The flourless chocolate cake was very chocolatey but not too rich, as some of those cakes can be. The service was excellent. It was a little odd to be in such a quiet restaurant - I never thought I'd hear myself say that - but it was a good choice for dinner and I will definitely go back. We both throughly enjoyed the restaurant.

Everything we ordered was delicious-Lobster Bread Pudding!Yum! Service was excellent. We never felt rushed, were not hovered over waiting for empty plates. Not a huge place so you feel like they pay attention to you. It was our anniversary so, yes, it was a nice romantic dinner! I will go back again and have already recommended others to go as well.

    First, the staff was great! We had a fussy child with our party and they moved us outside without a blink of an eye. The place is lovely, the outside dining is very pleasant. The food tasted good, but all our portions were very very small. I ordered the duck with grits and Brussels sprouts. I received a scant 3oz of sliced duck breast under about 1/2 cup of sauce (too much for me), about 1/2 cup cheese grits (this was the best thing on the plate) and a total of 3 Brussels sprouts, each sliced in half. Three. Really? I believe this dish cost $25 or $28? I expected more. More duck, more veggies, less sauce. The chicken Caesar salad my bf got was an appetizer size. It all tastes good, but We are underwhelmed due to portion size (& sauce).
