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.

Lovely little gem. Food is delicious the server was attentive and knowledgeable. Only criticism was that there is a smoking section outside behind the building. With the new expanded seating this smell from Zeke cigarettesAnd vaping was offensive.

Bruch on the patio. Food delicious. Worth the $23 brunch price which included mimosa, Bloody Mary or beer. Free parking on weekends in municipal lot across the street.

Four of us enjoyed a pleasant delicious lunch on the outdoor terrace. Two vegetarian eaters and two carnivores. Servers were helpful and accommodating. Their fries are the best for miles around.

Food is great, always well prepared and very tasty. The garden setting is beautiful as well. My only problem with my last visit was the band, which was so loud it was difficult to talk with my dining companion without shouting. I’ve been to Birdsall many times with no band, my advice would be to go on a night without music.

Birdsall food and drink never disappoints. It was lovely sitting outside; the street noise is a bit much at times, but that’s out of anyone’s control. The French fries are a must!

The server was rude & acted like they were doing us a favor by waiting on us. We had a reservation for 6 & sat at a nice table outside. We were from our of town & on an anniversary trip. They were having a drag show that night @ 7:30. & really hurried us through dinner due to the table being booked for the show. There was no advertisement anywhere about the drag show so, we had no idea. We actually would’ve liked to stay for it but when we asked we were treated as if we were idiots & told that the “table fee” would be $30 to stay. We were going to have another round of drinks but were so over the attitude from our server that we just got the check. I was a server & know what good customer service looks like. I can empathize w/ how challenging it can be but we were nothing but friendly & pleasant & looking forward to a fun night out. Disappointing.

Review is based on eating outside where noise is inevitable, and not under control of the restaurant. Very attentive wait staff, food very good.

Outdoor seating area is nice. Live music was good and not too loud. Food was very good.
Calamari Salad , Salmon, Bass, and Haddock were all nicely prepared and presented.
We definitely will return.

We loved this place and will definitely be back. It was easy to reserve a table and find parking just around the corner. We wanted to come at 12:45 but made a 1:15pm reservation because the earlier times were booked. The beer was top notch and all the food was delicious - make sure to try the spicy BBQ sauce! I was surprised that the service as so slow as we were sitting near the bar and it took awhile for both our drinks and then our food to be brought to our table. I was happy to have a vegan option at a brewery. My suggestion - come here when you have time to spare and make sure to order a beer.

The service was fantastic. Our server was delightful and another server kept our waters filled which is really important for us. The blackened salmon was the best piece of fish I have ever eaten, no lie. A little light on the fingerling potatoes. My husband's steak frit was burned on the bottom and not as flavorful as we would expect. He did not send it back because he never sends anything back. The wine was wonderful. It was a bit noisy from the bar as we asked to be seated inside, but good-natured, friendly noise is fine by us. I'm just including that if noise is a big deal to others.

There were 8 of us for a Father's Day late-lunch. It was really hot, so we asked if we could switch from a picnic table in the sun, to 2 put-together tables in the shade. The staff were very accommodating! Food was terrific as was the service. The kids, picky-eaters, loved the burgers and fries.

The lamb sliders and beet salad were delicious. California burger was tasty, but not cooked as we ordered. We sat outside since it was a cool evening and I faced the painted murals on the building which are beautiful. Diverse diners, which I like. Think a few plantings and or flowers would be a nice touch.

Good food, friendly staff and excellent beer selection. Prices are fair. The outdoor space is excellent but charmless. Maybe some planters by the metal gate would work to separate the dining space from the street. I would recommend this.
