I haven't been here in six years when, on a hot July day, the experience was quite ordinary. After hearing about some excellent improvements, a friend and I came to check it out for dinner. The food is very good; we both had the wild boar chops. I ordered them medium rare. One was rare and the other medium. That's all right, they were great cuts. The chicken mulligatawny soup was nicely done, as were the salads. It’s certainly worth a return visit.

Very good burgers, cold beer and good service. Value was good except the "special" arugula salad was way over priced. Because it was part of the waiter narrative, we didn't get a price. We certainly didn't expect an average sized (but tasty) salad to cost more than our burgers. It put a wet blanket on an otherwise pleasurable experience.

Slightly noisy dining area due to small children on Mother’s Day. It was our first visit, maybe the table could have been space a little further apart, also it was Mother’s Day. Over great food at a fair price.

We had an amazing dining experience, from our waiter to the bus boys, everyone was attentive & fabulous. Our entire meal was absolutely delicious. We loved every single thing we tried, tuna tartare, humus, steak bites, tandoori shrimp for appies, dinner was surf & turf, wild boar, scallop special & rib eye steak followed by berry cobbler, mud pie, & apricot brûlée ..... we left with full, happy bellies & left overs. Portions were large and every bite was delicious

We had a lovely Easter brunch (and also a birthday celebration) at The Pittstown Inn! A few years ago we came for dinner and the service was terrible so we were nervous to try it again. I am happy to say that the Service was great and the food was delicious!! I am happy we re-tried the Pittstown Inn because it is so close to our home and is such a beautiful restaurant.

Food and service were excellent. If you’re looking for a quiet or special occasion, don’t go Friday night. You won’t be able to talk much, but the music and food were very nice. Will be going back for food and entertainment, just not for “date night” lol. Great place overall!

A fun place to eat; great music in the bar and prices are reasonable. Ask for Lynn as your waitress and you will be very happy with the service. A fireplace in the back dining room makes it romantic. Hanger steak is excellent and so is the chicken.

Might be great one day.

The positives - A mostly modern menu in a charming setting. A respectable selection of draught and bottled beer, and an adequate wine list. Friendly and attentive service and expertly prepared grill items. Live music from the bar struck a festive and welcoming note.

There were some critical gaps.

We sat in a dining room that had at least 2 tables too many. The abundant staff and other diners were jostling around the tables all night, sometimes literally running into each other. If the room weren't so overcrowded, the beautiful fireplace might have been put to good use instead of staying dark and cold.

We were well looked-after, but overall the service was uneven. A large proportion of the staff were young and lacked experience, and although we weren't able to place our dinner order until 20 minutes after being seated, small adjustments and requests were handled promptly and with grace. We were provided with a basket of house-made focaccia which was good, but contained at least one stale slice from a prior go-round. One of our party asked for butter and we were treated to 4 ice-cold, foil-wrapped pats on a saucer - room for improvement here.

The menu is interesting apart from some relics of a bygone age (crab-stuffed shrimp, mint jelly with the lamb), and would probably benefit from being split into 2 - one for "tavern fare" and another section for full dinners.

I ordered "organic farmed wild boar", which seems like an oxymoron, and received two of the nicest grilled pork chops I can remember, but hardly worth the $36 price tag. I was surprised to see a small cup of ketchup on the plate, presumably for the (nicely done) sweet-potato fries that accompanied the chops. The sauce was uninspired - a bland starchy gravy.

Desserts were home made and fresh. Tea drinkers should curb their expectations.

There's a lot to like about the Pittstown Inn - with some attention to detail it could become well worth the price.

We went to the Pittstown Inn to celebrate my daughter's last night in town before returning to college. We each ordered the surf and turf special which included a New York strip, broiled scallop and grilled shrimp. The steaks were all done perfectly to temperature and everything tasted terrific. We look forward to our next visit.

The restaurant is roomy yet comfortable. Decor is simple, clean and eye pleasing. The service was outstanding; my wife had the Hanger Steak and I had the Lamb Chops. Both meals were hot when served and cooked exactly as ordered (medium rare). The wine list is serviceable but not extensive. We had no trouble in picking a good wine at the right price. My wife had the Peach Cobbler for desert which was yummy, and she was willing to give me a small taste. I had a vintage Tawny Port which was very reasonable priced. It was a wonderful, relaxing Christmas dinner. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Where is Gordon Ramsey when you need him? Our steaks were horrible.......tough yet very rare. Roasted vegetables were swimming in oil. Clam chowder came complete with sand from the beach. Service was robotic-like. Other than burgers, there are plenty of venues to visit. We’ll be stearing clear of this grill. Bye, Felisha.

I dined here for the first time recently with my wife and our friends. The ambiance of the restaurant is cozy. The noise level was good, not too noise but not library quiet either. Our servers were very professional and friendly. Most importantly, the food was very good. I had grilled lamb chops (with sauteed spinach and sweet potato fries) and my wife had a halibut special. Both were cooked perfectly and were excellent dishes.

We think we may have found our go to place for dinners with friends.

The food was very good. Lots of interesting items on the menu. The braised beef was delicious. We had a minor hiccup with our order (missing appetizer), which was no big deal, but the Manager made it a point to stop by our table to apologize. He even comped us a round of drinks, which was unnecessary but appreciated. They also have their own brewery on premises and I thought their milk stout was one of the best I've had. We will undoubtedly be back.
