Description: Customers enjoy dining alongside of the Esopus Creek between Phoenicia and Big Indian with an outdoor deck under sun-brellas or sit by the stream at picnic tables near the fire-pit (OK to use even during the “no-burn” season). Enjoy watching the bald eagles hang out on the island across the river and see the fly-fishermen compete for the trout swimming by. This business has been a successful dining destination for several decades and is the only restaurant that will ever be allowed next to the Esopus Creek (pre-existing in spite of NY City Watershed Rules). Conveniently located next to busy state highway 28 (about 3, 000 AADT) many eyes pass by every day and especially on weekends and holidays. The central Catskills draws many visitors for all four seasons and we are just nine miles east of the Belleayre Ski Center and three miles west of the Village of Phoenicia. The mountain region offers many outdoor recreation opportunities including fishing, hiking, biking skiing, kayaking, etc. Nearby hamlets of Phoenicia, Margaretville, and Woodstock offer many shopping venues and entertainment. We are fewer than two hours to NYC and a bus from Port Authority can stop in front. Stop by for dinner specializing in freshwater and ocean seafood and the best red meats available, smoked or expertly grilled for your pleasure. Normal busy weekend evenings will host 200-300 meals. The restaurant seats about 50 indoors including the bar and about 40 more can be seated easily on the outdoor deck or stream side. Presently open 6 days a week during summer and fall. Winters are open 3 days per week. We do our own smoked meats with our custom outdoor wood fired oven and can do hot or cold smoking. For those willing to sit outdoors, we carry a wide variety of “Owner Selected” international cigars for sale from our custom humidor for outdoor enjoyment.
