A nice variety of apps we had the chips, onion, crab dip. All well prepared and presented. I wasnt sure if my group of 6 would enjoy the main course but we had fish and chips (excellent) Ribs (very good) Sausage (exceptional) pork schnitzel (outstanding). Paired with some great beers and attentive service and we had a very pleasant couple of hours.

All four of us had the Tent Burger and truffle fries. The burgers were average and the fries were good. Drinks refreshing. The menu was small and not a representation of the menu on line. One person in our group thought the burger was undercooked. We realized the waiter never asked us how we wanted our burger cooked, but they weren’t consistently cooked the same. My husband said the meal was overpriced for the food we got. Waiter was friendly. Our best meal on this Trip was in Albany at the City Line Bar and Grill. We also had a good meal in Woodstock at Dixon Roadhouse.

Great place. Excellent burger. The menu is a bit limited but all items were good. The live music was really good but too loud. You can’t hear anything or anyone else.

My wife and I went on a date here recently had it was an amazing night. We went classic with the chicken sandwich and Dutch burger, but they were both amazing. The only minor thing she said was a little too much sauce was on her sandwich. The rubbed wings were DELICIOUS. Paired with the house ranch, I could have eaten them as an entree if they had it on the menu. Our server was very friendly and personable, coming by a few times making sure everything was going well, which it was. I enjoy their variety of drink options. The atmosphere was great, a little noise but well quiet enough to easily have a conversation. I highly recommend this as a place to dine to anyone and everyone. We will definitely be coming back again.

A bar should really have basic red wine available by the glass. I am talking Cabernet, merlot, Pino Noir, something. I mean really, only thing available was cotes du Rhone or a Zinfandel ? And then when someone In The party ordered Chardonnay , they were told they were out of that as well ?

Largest piece of fish ever for fish & chips dish—and delicious! They have malt vinegar if you ask, BONUS! For appetizer, make sure to try the truffle fries (and dip them). You won’t regret the melange of flavors!

Due to Covid restrictions, the Dutch Ale House has had to serve their customers in what used to be their back parking lot. However, when you are seated at your table, inside a large tent, you seem to forget all that. The music is upbeat, not-too-loud, and a reminder of happier times. The space was cool, airy, and actually elegant. Our server was very engaging, and upbeat. Overall, the experience was excellent. Despite the menu changes, the food was excellent. Keep up the great work!!! Very creative!!!

The menu was small, but the food was alright. I wasn't a fan of the server. He didn't check on us while the food took forever. I also asked for my wings and a side as my entree and for some reason he insisted on the wings coming out as an appetizer.

Hadn't been back to Ale House in almost two years. Ate Sunday lunch inside to take advantage of great appearance of old tavern comfort (in beautiful condition), stained woodwork, booths and bar. Menu of course limited a little bit given current times, vs. last visit. Food was wonderful as was service. Cocktail menu is nicely done with varied interesting choices and of course many ales to enjoy. We were very happy to get back to the Dutch Ale House (which for now is also operating a spacious tent beer garden out back).

A terrific burger in a charming and lovely space. The only drawback was that the restaurant's online ordering system resulted in a substantial delay when it came to getting our food. The restaurant was apologetic about this and provided an extra side of fries to make up for the lengthy lag. Would eat here again.

Third time visiting Saugerties and our third visit to Dutch Ale House. Food is always excellent but the attention from the staff is even better!

Went to Dutch Ale House tonight with a friend who lives. Locally. We started with drinks and the hummus appetizer. We each had the market Salad with Chicken or Salmon. Both were equally good.

Our server Victoria C was attentive, the food excellent and the overall experience great.

See you next tine!!!

Food was great, as was the service. The only downfall is we were seated in a booth next to the bar in the first room. It was a little tight for anything more than 2 people and too close to the folks sitting on the bar stools.
