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.

                                                            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.

                                                            Birdsall has been a go-to spot for me for years. The food and drinks are delicious, the servers are friendly and appropriately attentive, and they have great (though slightly noisy from street traffic) outdoor space for pandemic dining.

                                                            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.

                                                            The cocktails were terrible and the food pretty ordinary. I don’t know why they call themselves a gastropub.

The best thing about Birdsall is that you eat comfort foods and you don’t feel like you destroyed your body. The staff is friendly and opinionated about the meals and their long list of beers.

                                                            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.

                                                            The kitchen seemed overly taxed — never was able to produce soup of the day, though one of our guests tried to order it— also ran out of some kinds of gelato after we had been told it was available when we ordered — no complaints about our waiter though, who was great. Delicious food though and we were so glad to find a place with outdoor seating !

                                                            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.

                                                            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.
