    We are excited to have a new chef at the Stewart House. Very welcoming and professional staff. Beautiful bar room. The fish and chips were excellent--the sugar snaps were a delicious and interesting twist. The kale and apple salad was way too vinegary, the bacon tasted old, the cornbread crumb tasted stale rather than toasted. The chicken liver pate tartine needs some tweaking.

    Great place to sit by the river and eat! Music was playing in the park and our server was great! Most of the meals were good grill food. One of our friends order the salmon and it was not good at all. So stick to the grill food on the menu and you should be ok. I definitely recommend going!!!

    This historic inn has recently been beautifully restored, the location on the Hudson riverfront (where they operate an outdoor dining area called The River Grill during the late spring - fall months) is wonderful, both the tavern and the dining area provide terrific ambience, the folks are friendly, and the food delicious and magnificently prepared. We're relatively local and, because it's a tad pricey for us (though generally worth it), we don't visit frequently. But we're always satisfied when we do.

    We haven’’t been to the Stewart House in years. Thought it would be a nice place to take my mom for Mother’s Day. The place is still nice! The service was great. The menu was OK. I had the flank steak. While the steak and the mashed potato’s were very good good right the dressing on the salad could be better. Sort of too much vinegar or something. My husband’s hamburger wasn’t bad but he said some kind of preservative was added and left an after taste. FF regular and truffle were good. What was really disappointing was the chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting. It was stale. Will we go back, who knows. Sometimes good old fashion food is best and not crazy mix up of items. Have to see menu for yourself before you decide to go.

    I have bern to the River Pavilion their seasonal riverfront outdoor dining spot which I love. That spot is more casual fare with a full bar and great views of the Hudson! For my birthday I decided to try their indoor restaurant. It is so beautifully designed with a turn of the century look, lovely art and murals. The service is very welcoming and warm. The menu is a more elevated farm to table selection and everyone absolutely loved their meals. A few people enjoyed the discounted (Thursday night deal) on burgers meat and Impossible Burger. A few had fish and chips with seared peas that was very traditional in the English style and delicious. Others enjoyed dishes that were more creative culinary delights! I had perhaps one of the more scrumptious cocktails ever... featuring vodka and passion fruit!! Will definitely be making Stewart House a new favorite destination for dinners both special occasions and for great nights out! Highly recommend!!!

    One night the food was absolutely amazing, another - a little bit too salty for my taste. Overall enjoyed coming here. Athens, NY don’t offer any other dinner options but 1883 Tavern is worth making a trip.

    Fantastic meal and wonderful, warm and prompt service, as always! We had the radicchio Ceasar and the pepita and dried cherry salad with 'nooch' dressing, and also the roasted radish and mushroom rice dish. We usually eat meat but we were trying to see what the veggie options were - and they were SO GOOD!

    The atmosphere was romantic and elegant, with soft lighting and a comfortable banquette. My husband and I were celebrating our 10th Anniversary, and we were greeted by our server with a thoughtful offer of champagne. The meal was delicious. I had crispy skin salmon which was cooked perfectly, and my husband very much enjoyed his cavatelli pasta with sausage. The warm burrata appetizer was especially delicious with its accompanying crostini. It was a memorable meal and we look forward to dining there again.

    Beautiful location near the water, with a great waterfront area. On a rainy night, ate inside and though pretty quiet due to the weather, the service, cooking and care were top notch all the way! Helen, our server was friendly, thoughtful and perfect service throughout the meal. A pleasure to go here for dinner.

    The restaurant is in a beautiful historic building and thoughtfully renovated. The interior is very elegant. The food was outstanding. The salad I had—“little gems”— was hands down the best salad I’ve ever eaten. A must eat if you are up in the Hudson, NY area.

    All great except music choice in the dining room- really loud blues guitar on a beautiful Sun afternoon. It felt a little teenage boys’ dorm room circa 1974 instead of matching the loveliness of everything else. No big deal, you asked!

    The Stewart House just re-opened after closing for the winter and the Covid-19 pandemic. We were glad to have it back. The food is excellent and innovative, and the decor of the historic hotel tavern and restaurant has been beautifully restored. It's a great choice for a special night out. They also have a take-out and pantry menu.
