    My husband and I took some guests from Missouri to have dinner and drinks. It was a lovely night. We were able to spend as much time as we needed choosing beer and flights. The appetizers were huge and delicious and the meals were also nicely portioned and very tasty. The food came out very fast but we weren't rushed at any point. The server had great beer and food suggestions and answered all of our questions. The décor is a nice combination of modern and cozy. Every staff member we came across was friendly and helpful.

    I came to Poughkeepsie to celebrate my birthday with my children, who are students at Marist. Mill House was the perfect choice. The food and drinks were very good and the atmosphere was lively without being overly noisy. Jeremy (and the rest of the folks working our table) made the evening complete with their excellent service. We will definitely be back.

    I have been to quite a few brew pubs and wasn't sure what to expect from a restaurant called a 'brewing company'. I decided to give it a try based on other reviews which described it as "romantic" and "fit for foodies". It was all that. Our waiter was attentive but not at all intrusive. Our table was a semi-circular, high upholstered booth which was very private. The food was delicious. As you would imagine there is an extensive beer list which my son appreciated. I did not care for the Chardonnay and I think there was only one to choose.

    I took my husband here for a birthday lunch and we had a fantastic time. Attentive and friendly service without being overwhelming/intrusive, delicious food and a great selection of wines at very reasonable prices made this a great spot - only wish we could have stayed a bit longer! Would definitely recommend to friends and family visiting Poughkeepsie.

    We go here quite often, the fresh beer is always great, something for everyone. Wait staff is really good here. I ordered a steak which came out rare instead of medium rare as I had requested. I sent it back and it came back to the table pretty quickly, now done to perfection. The Mac n Cheese that came with it is amazing, made with Pimento cheese and Cheddar, great comfort food. This place is always busy on weekends so make sure to call a few days ahead to get a reservation.

    Took five women to a brewery-three were from Germany and one from Romania-all liked it very much. The Albany ale was very good as were the lamb ribs and kale salad. The brussel sprouts were fantastic. It looks like an old brewery inside and our waitress was very attentive. One of the best breweries I've ever been to and a great place to stop in after the Walkway over the Hudson.

    A cut above the usual brew-pub, with a hopping bar scene, great house-made sausages and other interesting dishes, friendly staff, welcoming widely-spaced tables on multiple levels. Wait-staff knowledgeable about the different kinds of beers, as well as details and nuances regarding the offered meals. I was glad to find it on a business trip to Poughkeepsie.

    By far the best meal that we have had out in a long time! We have been to the bar before for a sampler and my husband had been for a great lunch. This was our first dinner and it was fantastic. Polite staff and food that was to die for. The only thing we didn't like was we felt we were to closely seated to other patrons. We were at a table for 2 and it was a little cramped. The building renovations they did were great - very appealing and warm. We did not have the opportunity to visit upstairs or outside dining- that will be in our future!

    I brought my husband to Mill House for his birthday. It was the first time either of us had been there. I started with the calamari salad as an appetizer. It was delicious and so big it could've easily been a meal. Yum!! I then had the Sea and Swine combo. The tuna and pork belly were kind of an odd combination, but each were delicious, as was the black forbidden rice. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his meal as well, and we left the restaurant full and content.

    Do they make beer with that water? May explain a lot. This place is quite popular, but I'm not sure why. The All American burger was 2 McDonalds type patties with processed American cheese food, lettuce, tomato and onion on an unremarkable bun served with shoe string fries. Meh. The Kilt Spinner ale was satisfactory, again not remarkable. Service was ok, not attentive, interesting decor, noise levels terrible,and a very limited menu. Doubt we will be back.

My husband had the "kielbasa" which wasnt kielbasa at all....very little saurekraut and portion was small. Not sure we'll be back...we sat upstairs which brought in a very large, loud party...made it difficult to talk.

    Reservations made 1 month prior for a small luncheon/baby shower occasion (mama-to-be recommended the place not knowing it was in her honor). We were seated at the far end of the bar area at a raised, "bar" type table, not very comfortable. We commented as we were seated about this but it fell on deaf ears. The appetizers came out minutes before our entrees so we ran out of room on the table. We were not asked if we wanted more water or another beverage (had to flag someone down & even then it took too long), used dishes were not removed timely or at all (we actually put some on the bar) and dessert was not offered. We were left feeling somewhat neglected. A shame because the food was quite good (albeit pricey, $16 for a Ruben!?).

    Did not see the upstairs, but the building is beautiful. That said, the brick interior means the noise level is pretty high. 5 of us were pretty crowded in a table but any smaller (or perhaps larger) group would be fine. Great bear choices, though seemingly lacking wheat beer and stout. Food was good, typical pub fare with emphasis on sausages. Food choices clearly meant to get you to drink more beer ! Service was fine but strangely felt was being "up-sold" as much as possible.

    2 for lunch: 2 soups, 2 salads, 1 iced tea, 2 coffees. $42 FOR LUNCH so w/tip was $25/pp. The food had better be great for that price. It wasn't. Only one soup offered, Ale + Cheese, very thin, watery. I'm from WI so there are far better cheese soup recipes. Prior visits I've ordered sandwiches but substantially heavy bread. This time I had a salad, mesclun greens w/a few grape tomatoes. I added gorgonzola, an extra $3. This was a quiet Monday lunch. 4-7pm can be pretty loud (but fun). Comfy booths, great bar/happy hour/atmosphere/decor/beer offerings. This is my 5th visit for food, consistently been disappointing/expensive. I want this place to succeed but they need to review their menu/pricing for lunch/bistro crowd.

    Menu options were a bit limited. Service was slow - long wait for initial drink order. Then they brought entrees - at the same time that we were still eating our appetizers. Beers were very good as were the Beef Skewers and Spinach salad. Ribs were over sauced and cold. Kimchi brat was also cold. Mushroom fettuccini was a bit bland but at least served warm. Would try again for drinks and appetizers not sure it lives up to it's hype though. Nice looking place. Servers were very pleasant.
