    found out about this restaurant through my son . made reservation online and were seated promptly upon arriving right on time. service was excellent even though the restaurant was quite busy. the buffalo fried oysters and buffalo brussel sprouts were excellent. also had the Albany ale which was brewed from a 100 year old recipe was also very good. . on the whole had a very pleasant experience and can't wait to return to try something different.

    The food and service great! We had six o'clock reservations and we were seated right away and the waitress walked right over for drink orders and handed us menus! I would definitely recommend this place for dinner with your other half or a group! I had the sushi grade ahi tuna & pork belly on forbidden black rice and it was fantastic, my husband had one of the specials and the pork was cooked to perfection.

    our first visit...expected more considering our children raved about it. Food selection was hard to pick from as it didnt offer what I was looking for. 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.

    Love coming here, if an in-house beer is out, they bring in another locally brewed beer from the Hudson Valley. Mill House is usually very busy, always a good idea to call ahead and make a reservation.

    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.

    I had my mother's surprise birthday party here last weekend, and it went off without a hitch. Amazing food, beer, and service in a great atmosphere. Perfect location for our party of 9, and making the reservation and catering to my request about keeping the party a secret at my arrival went flawlessly.

    Definitely make a reservation if you're going on a Saturday night. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and they were able to seat us. The service was a little slow to start but that's understandable as we were early. Food was delish, drinks were great. We would definitely go again!

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We wanted early Saturday dinner in Poughkeepsie and so booked a 4pm reservation. It wasn't busy when we walked in, but it was packed in an hour and we were so glad to be sitting in our half-circle booth! We filled up primarily on meat options, but there are fish and vegetarian choices on the menu. We downed flights of micro-brew samplers and wished we could have remained at our table for a few more hours! More than Beer & Brats, the sausage and beverage selections are so broad that one visit fairly begs for another. Carol W was our cheerful and efficient waitress. Set in a charming old brick building with some modern enhancements, offering plentiful parking and food and some patio tables, we highly recommend this fun and casual restaurant.

    Pricey for the menu and location but a cool place. Small serving sizes. Had the fried oysters app-a little undercooked. Entrees we had included $16 for a good but very small serving of kielbasa and $28 for a very fatty short rib special. Food was ok-nothing to rave about. Good beer menu. Getting served was slow (it was crowded), yet then they were bussing our table while we were still eating. Desserts were $7 (fine) and kids meals $12 (ridiculous).

    Mill House Brewing Company presents an impressive list of beers, which were cheerfully described by our waitress. My table mates enjoyed their beers, and my cocktail was quite tasty, as well. Food was well prepared, came out incredibly quickly, and portions were quite generous. Everyone loved their food--pizzas and pulled pork sandwiches, accompanied by home made kettle chips. Would definitely return.

    This brew house opened in November 2013 and we just discovered it. Celebrated our son's birthday and had a great meal with house-brewed beer that was delicious! Upstairs is too noisy for conversation -- needs something to absorb the wood, brick & beams, but the downstairs and outside patio worked well. Great service, too. A real find!

    Had nice service, didn't quite understand the greeting at the front entry. We were a early (20 minutes or so) and we were told we would get seated at the time of our reservation despite the fact that the table we were seated at eventually and every table around it were all empty. I guess don't be early must be the message being conveyed by the desk, not the friendliest.. We had a great server, very efficient and friendly. Food was ok, the drip from the ceiling on the floor next to the table was not such a nice addition to the dinner and the staff did their best to keep it mopped up and safe. Not the best dinner we've had here.
