A word from SWIFT - The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls
Swift serves a locally inspired, seasonal menu, craft beer, and artisanal cocktails. Guests will enjoy stunning waterfall views through floor-to-ceiling windows in our spacious dining room. Designed by the award-winning architecture and design firm, Rockwell Group, the restaurant provides a gorgeous setting for enjoying an exceptional meal or distinctive cocktail. Our adjoining lounge, 2EM, serves a locally inspired, seasonal menu of small plates, craft beer, and artisanal cocktails. The Patio, a spacious outdoor dining area overlooking Fishkill Creek and Beacon Falls, is open Friday through Sunday, May through October, for lunch, dinner, and cocktails, weather permitting. Whether you're grabbing a light bite, just cocktails, or looking for a nice meal outdoors, its prime location at the corner of Main and East Main Street makes it a fun spot to dine al fresco and enjoy the view and sound of the falls.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The good: the view is amazing The bad: the food is boring and lacks flavor. Also, the waitstaff and hostess seemed to be freshly hired, and lacking prior experience, seeming both anxious and un-attentive. Plus I had to send my cocktail back, it tastes like syrup. Ugh!! The ugly: the bill, there's no reason to pay that much for a less than stellar dining experience. Avoid Swift, instead get a beer at the outside bar and enjoy the view, then go someplace else for dinner."

  • "Lovely place with great views of the creek and the falls. The menu is unique and the food was delicious."

  • "Sorry to say but this was a mediocre dinner at best. This restaurant is trying to be a "big deal" in the cuisine department and just doesn't cut it. Should stick to simpler fare and then the beautiful restaurant and setting would be even more enjoyable."

  • "My husband and I came to the Roundhouse on a recommendation from my brother in law for our 11th wedding anniversary, and I am SO glad we did! The style and feel of the restaurant are exactly what we like, industrial yet homey. The wait staff was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed right away. The food (on a busy night!) was mouth watering! The local veggies and meat were a huge plus and my husband couldn't stop talking about his meal and how wonderful it was the whole time we were eating. Dessert and coffee were outstanding as well, we coffee drinkers know a good place when we get an entire French press to ourselves!"

  • "This was our second time dining at Swift. Our first experience was delightful..food was very good, service was excellent. Our experience this time was not as good...service was very slow and the restaurant did not seem to be overly busy. When our food finally arrived it was not hot...but we did not return as we didn't want to wait any longer."

  • "Service was excellent and the restaurant was very quiet. We could carry on a private conversation without a problem. Now the food, the flat iron steak was delivered hot and cooked just the way I requested it. My wife enjoyed the duck, cooked to her perfection and without a sauce, delivering full flavor of the meat."

  • "The building was once a roofless, decrepit northeast mill. The entire structure had to be gutted and rebuilt. Roundhouse/Swift did an excellent job. This is my first choice of restaurants when I want to impress. View of Beacon Falls is stunning. Food is superb. Menu’s vary by season so don’t follow the web menu. Bonus for serving just the right amount. Wine and drink selection is excellent. For a romantic dinner, with friends, business meeting, or just for the excellent food."

  • "We have eaten here three times, and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, service is great, and the view of the waterfall is spectacular. Ask for a window seat."

  • "Spectacular food and drinks and sitting by the window watching the Falls is outstanding. Not just your run of the mill restaurant. "

  • "Worth the drive from anywhere to enjoy the fantastic view of the falls from either the outdoor patio or through the indoor floor to ceiling glass walls. Delicious and varied seasonal menu and great bar off the entrance to relax after."

  • "We have now dined at Swift four times; the food is excellent: beautifully prepared and presented, with a broad range of tantalizing flavors, nicely balanced and tantalizing. Servers actually appear pleased to be able to serve their customers and are unfailingly attentive and friendly. The view of the nearby waterfalls and rapids make for a spectacular view: and we enjoyes watching the herons flying close by. A special place. "

  • "Come for the food! The view also. Some service problems due to inconsistent management. The menu is innovative, artfully prepared, and mostly consistent. If they resolved service and timing issues would be one of the best."

  • "The only concern is that we had to wait for the wine to be chilled, it was not at the right temperature even when we already got out food."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "This is our very favorite restaurant in the mid-Hudson Valley. We've been here for several meals and they have been invariably excellent with great service. There's always something very subtle in their use of flavors and ingredients, the ambience overlooking Beacon Falls is soothing and the prices are very reasonable for food of such outstanding quality."

  • "Swift is an incredible place. It is worth the drive from NYC for the food, service and incredible ambiance. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. We went this past Sunday for a celebratory graduation brunch and Seamus and team could not have been lovelier. The menu is creative, yet comforting. There is a wide variety for many different palates. The amuse bouche is a very nice touch. And it is impossible to overstate how nice it is to sit and truly enjoy your meal with the view of the falls. There is never a rush to turn the table or a sense that you are in the staff's way. The bar and grounds are also places where you can linger. An absolute must for a trip anywhere near Beacon. "

  • "Loved the food, especially the shrimp & grits. The service was friendly & attentive. It was a memorable Mother's Day!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "It wasn't a cheap brunch at $35, but the high-quality selections (including a nice rib-eye) and view of the small waterfall made it worth it. We had a reservation for a specific time, and it took us a few minutes to find the right entrance. No problem waiting to be seated after that, but we did end up waiting at least 15 minutes and probably 20 minutes after our reserved time even though we could see unattended tables. This was the case for several other parties waiting in the lobby throughout the day too. It's possible someone on the staff called out unexpectedly, though, and everyone was friendly and apologetic. "

  • "food was very good, presentation was interesting, but a overpriced. There was a noisy night-before-the-wedding party spilling out of the bar into the restaurant foyer, which affected our ability to enjoy dinner conversation. Don't think we will go there again. It cost over $75 per person with one drink each and two desserts for 4 people."

  • "An imaginative menu, well executed and served in a stunning room. The food is delicious and helps compensate for the sometimes poor service. Worth the trip!"

  • "My fiance and I had dinner here for the first time and we felt like we were away on vacation (even though we live 45min away). The service and ambiance were amazing, and the food was very good - prices are reasonable. We are looking forward to returning. "

  • "We stumbled upon Roundhouse for my wife's birthday. We were looking for a restaurant that was not located on Route 9 and serving food we too could buy at Sam's or BJ's... We were flipping through reviews online and there was something with respect to restaurants supporting a recent cause and Swift was on there. We looked up the menu and recognized immediately that it was a real restaurant, like you would find in NYC or Austin, where we were spoiled with similar restaurants. We absolutely loved it. The food was excellent; the service wonderful and the ambience and atmosphere very relaxing. The view of the falls of Fishkill Creek just added to the enjoyment. We will definitely be going back."

  • "Asked for eggs scrambled, showed up over easy. Asked for burgers well done, showed up cold and raw. Overpriced, undercooked. Never again."

  • "Once again we enjoyed our special anniversary dinner at Swift - the Roundhouse Beacon Falls. We certainly would recommend this restaurant to others especially to celebrate special occasions."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Swift was wonderful. We went there for dinner and enjoyed every minute of it. The service was excellent. The ambiance was amazing. The view fantastic. The waterfall was running at top speed. Very impressive. The food was excellent. The only thing was the portions could be a little bit bigger, for those with a bigger appetite than I. Otherwise excellent all around. Be sure to go !!!. We can't wait to go back and utilize the patio in the warmer weather."

  • "We went away on a weekend to Cold Spring/Beacon. We were looking for a good brunch place and the view of the falls was perfect. The service was not as expected. He only filled our water glass once as we sat. A different staff members delivered our food. Our server never came back to check on us after the food was delivered. Limited Menu for Brunch for the price. Food was good however, not sure we would go back. "
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Food was delicious! the view of the falls is always a treat. A bit on the pricey side, I'm used to paying about 120 for a good dinner for 2 but we spent close to 150.00 including tip. And I only had one drink!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Food is high quality, inventive, and beautiful. Chef begins with amuse-bouche, finishes with a couple of house-made chocolates, and all dishes we've sampled in 3 dinners have been outstanding: most recently, ox-tail soup, lamb-loin, asparagus medley. Great range of wines, including many in the low $30's range. The beautifully lit rushing river is simply spectacular. The Roundhouse renovation is exquisite. Only problem: when we arrived at 9:30 Friday, courses came at us too fast. I know it was late, but with food that good, it's worth savoring it without worrying how to keep the next one warm. A fancy cocktail, bottle of wine, 2 apps and a shared main course, and immense cheese plate ran $150 with tip. Best restaurant in the area."

  • "I had looked and there was a lunch menu but we received a Brunch menu when we arrived. Lots of different, eclectic selections. This worried me a bit, but in the end the food was fabulous and the service was great. My dish was a lttle late coming out (2 or 3 min) and the waitress comped me a drink. Will be going back to try the dinner menu. I had potato latkes made with real shredded potatoes covered with the best scrambled eggs I have ever eaten, and then that was covered with braised beef. Incredible."

  • "A friend and I tried Swift during restaurant week, and both of us really loved it! The food was delicious and presented beautifully. The wait staff was attentive and charming. Since it was a special prix fixed menu, I don't have a good sense of the prices / value, but I would have expected to pay 2X what we actually paid for an equivalent experience. Oh, and the view is just amazing!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Our experience at Swift was a very pleasent one. The atmosphere was relaxing and the view was so pretty. We went during restaurant week so we had a prefixed menu which worked out great for us so we could try a little of everything. Roasted mushroom appetizer not good, Duck was amazing, scallops were really good. The dessert i choose was AMAZING and my favorite of the night, I do not remember the name but it was a croissant filled with caramel chocolate covered pretzels crushed with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. The service was nice they didnt come around too much but just enough. I would recommend this place for an anniversary or a fun night out with a close group. We will go back once the deck is open and try their lunch."

  • "The day we ate at Swift, the "waterfall" was powerful and the water was bubbly and full. Great view from our table! The "amuse bouche" is always a pleasant surprise and the seafood sausage tasted delicious. The freshly baked breads and soft breadsticks were excellent and worth eating. We ordered off the restaurant week menu and enjoyed the flavors and savory tastes of all our courses which were served by our attentive wait staff. The wine pairing was very generous and went well with each course. We will definitely return for the "chef's table" which is a special 9 course dinner (chef's choice) offered once a month."

  • "I rarely respond to reviews, but this place was absolutely awesome! We had never even been to Beacon, and found the town, the neat location of this restaurant, the falls, the food, the service to be over the top. We loved it - and it was restaurant week too."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I let my waitress pick my restaurant week dinner and I was not disappointed. Oxtail Tortellini, Steak with Creamed Spinach, and Chocolate ice cream was all amazing! The Wine pairings were 3 - full 9 ounce pours for only $15. Amazing restaurant week find."

  • "Swift stands out in an area with some great CIA chef owned restaraunts. My wife and I visited Friday night during Hudson Valley restaraunt week for the prix fixe. My wife had scallops and I had halibut, both were very creative, tasty, and perfectly cooked. (We were very pleased that 3 of the second course options allowed us to keep our Lenten vows.) As with many of the CIA chef operated restaraunts in our area, the porportions were perfectly sized. The wait staff was very profesional, friendly and knowledgable: able to answer questions about the history of the build and clearly explaining the desert options. The dining room is modern and minimalist; it overlooks a stream and waterfall in Beacon."
