Gastro Pub
Established in 2010 by Tim Reinke and John Sharp, the Birdsall House quickly became a destination for craft beer and locally sourced cuisine (some from our own garden!) in the Hudson Valley. Chef Sturgess Spanos, a French-trained veteran, showcases his talent and flair for innovation, which compliment the gastropub's beer-centric beverage program. The Birdsall House Beer Garden opened in 2011 offering patio dining and picnic tables for groups to congregate and socialize over a pint. We look forward to your visit.

    We sat outside on the spacious patio. Our server was wonderful and the food was excellent, as usual. The caprese salad was made with purple basil and tomatoes from the restaurant garden - so fresh and delicious!! This is one of our go-to restaurants in Peekskill.

    We went on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. We were told once we were there that we could only order off the Brunch menu, and burgers were available. The website clearly says the Brunch and regular menu were available on Sunday. When we told the waitress, her response was "oh well we 100% don't update our website..and it's been like this since covid". Food was meh...ambience was...meh. The brunch was $26, which included an alcoholic beverage - I don't really drink. Very pricey for eggs. I don't think I'd go back.

    My friend has allergies. Robert went over each of the menu items to decide what my friend could eat. She made her decision and we had a wonderful meal. The effort put forth by Robert and Julia, our waitress was phenomenal! When Dominic took over the 2nd shift, we were introduced & informed. My friend & I plan a “double date” with our husbands in the future.

    Our Sunday brunch in the garden adjacent to Birdsall House was a lovely respite. The outdoor seating was comfortable and our table was equipped with an umbrella that provided welcome shade. We ordered from the prix-fixe menu, which offered a complimentary Mimosa, Bloody Mary or beer, a good selection of appetizers and a varied list of entrées for $26.00 per person. We both ordered the very flavorful crostini with herbed goat cheese as our starters. For the main course, I had the scrumptious and VERY rich corned beef and eggs. My boyfriend had the deliciously decadent Cinnamon Brioche French Toast, which came with eggs and bacon. We were curious about the hash tart, so we had that as a side dish and found it to be reminiscent of a potato latke. The service was professional, yet relaxed and friendly. We're looking forward to our next visit!

    Birdsall House is a sleeper in the Hudson Valley. The food is amazing and deserves the title of Gastro Pub. We usually hit this place post hikes but decided to eat here on a Saturday night & did not disappoint.

    Outdoor seating isn't as comfortable as it could be, the food took a very long time to get to us, and the food is overpriced, I could get the same thing for half the cost anywhere else and taste just as good. The service was good, they did the best they could given how busy it was. Overall I spent a hundred bucks on three drinks and two meals, whether that's inflation or that's just how much the place always is, I can get better value without sacrificing quality elsewhere.

    Went to Birdsall Hiuse for dinner before heading to the Paramount Theater. My wife and I both had a burger. These were well sized burgers served with an abundant quantity of fries. The burgers were excellent and the fries were extraordinary. The service was excellent. I had a glass of wine and the glass contained a full serve. An excellent value, will be back.

    We heard good things about the place and I was eager to go. First off it’s Noisy!!!! It’s a small bar so if you can eat outside …do. We had a reservation and was seated promptly. We seated at 6:15 ordered a steak sandwich, an enchilada and a steak. We had tickets for the paramount at 8. I watched tables get seated and we waited. At 7 pm I asked where is our meal as people who sat after us had all gotten their food. Another 15 minutes and we were told sorry your check got messed up and it is coming out now? The owner/manager was very nice, apologized took our drinks off the check and of course things happen. We had to literally throw down our food and headed out. The enchilada was ok … and the steak (I don’t eat red meat) looked good. I would try it again but only outside and only if I have time.

    A lucky surprise! I googled "restaurants in Peekskill, NY" after an afternoon of eagle watching in Verplank and selected Birdsall House at random. We had a fabulous dinner: potato leek soup that was very tasty, a cheese plate with a well chosen variety of cheeses, their own mustard and chutney and warm crusty bread, a pork bowl, a whoppe pie and a sticky toffee pudding as desserts. We ended with freshly brewed coffee and tea. We loved it. Fairly priced with Ashley, one of the very best servers we have encountered anywhere for a long time. Please try them...in warm weather we could see a large patio for outdoor seating.

    I've been disappointed the last few times coming to Birdsall House. The waitstaff are inattentive, and several seem to have an attitude, almost as if they don't want patrons there. I understand it can get busy, but even an acknowledgement of one's presence, even minor would be helpful. Waited ten minutes this last time to even have someone come to the table to get drinks. Prices also have gone up, portions skimmed back and overall value declined. It's overpriced and mediocre, which is sad, because I really used to enjoy coming to this establishment.
