Peekskill Pub Food - The Branding Iron

I've been to Hudson Room a handful of times and yeah I completely agree the music is annoying but I have never had bad service there and 2 weeks ago I had an amazing sushi special there. Firehouse grill sucks. I think I'm more of a peekskill drinker than an eater lol, I'm at Birds every other weekend hell I'm gonna go there tonight bc there staff is great and their beer list is unmatched, Peekskill Brewery is slowly becoming very well known in the beer world for their IPA's but the bar is way too crowded and the bar tenders move way too slowly for me, but I stand behind Birdsall Completely and I love the food at Hudson.

The Cider pub across from quiet man is opening soon (or is already open) I will surely check it out, and if you want a casual fast meal the Jamaican Spot on rt 6 is excellent.

Redline Saloon, Cortlandt Manor. A delicious hole-in-the-wall.

Hey guys, I just want to take a moment to praise Redline Saloon. It's a hidden gem in my opinion. It's a complete dive/ biker bar and no I am not a biker but all are welcome with open arms here. The interior is a completely terrible, Folding chairs, complete disarray, similar look as an old knights of columbus hall. The bar has no taps, just one keggerator with a keg of stella (and your average selection of bottles)...

Okay once you get passed the "look".

I had driven past this place many times and wrote it off as a biker bar but I had a craving for a good burger and after a yelp search I decided to take the gamble here. The bartender was an absolute sweetheart, very friendly late 20 something girl, such a welcoming attitude, my buddy and I were the only non-regulars there and you could tell, but it wasn't awkward. She explained the specials and she gave us a few recommendations. I got the wings (thats my specialty area) and my craving, a classic bacon cheeseburger. My buddy also ordered nachos. The wings came out first and I was really surprised that they were fresh wings and yeah it makes a huge difference, they were cooked good and the sauce was very good, the blue cheese was fantastic, I appreciate a place that makes their own or orders the good stuff, I did not ask which of the two it was. The nacho plate was excellent, huge portion, lots of cheese, peppers, tomatoes, and chicken and beef. The star of the day however were the burgers, both were huge, greasy, and perfectly cooked. The fries are handcut and perfect. I will be back eventually for sure.

If you're in the area and can get passed the we don't give a f**k decor, check this place out.

Peekskill Pub Food - The Branding Iron

Here's what I wrote in my Yelp review, excuse the sarcasm, I go for laughs...

Right off the bat you will notice the space at Iron Vine is beautiful. The designers did a superb job and you feel cozy and warm inside. That is practically where my praises stop. My friends and I sat at the bar and all ordered at the same time. However, my food never came. Over an hour after ordering, the first of my small plates started to arrive, and small plates they are. The empanada plate is microscopic. These arent empanadas, these are a tiny scoop of a filling wrapped in dough. These are about the length of 3 quarters. They are so tiny I could have shoved them up my nose and down my throat. The omelet dish that I ordered was so bland and completely lacking of any salt, I was unsure if I was eating food or a Hallmark greeting card. All I can say is the wings were pretty decent but they got my sauce wrong.

I won't be back, Peekskill has way more to offer in this day and age all within steps away from Iron Vine.

Vinous.... Try out Redline Saloon on Albany Post in Cortlandt...I went there last week on a whim, It's a total hole in the wall, it looks like a knights of columbus hall on the inside with folding chairs and everything lol theres no beer taps, only bottles and a keg lol....HOWEVER....the food is great, the burger was among the best I have had in the area, the wings were clearly fresh and great sauce....and staff seems great- You have been warned about the atmosphere but go enjoy the food

Peekskill Pub Food - The Branding Iron

I tried Iron Vine, over priced, bland, and poor service won't be back... Peekskill is in my weekly rotation and Iron Vine has been eliminated lol go to Hudson Room instead.

Is Bridgeview Tavern the BEST casual dining option in the Lower Westchester/Rivertown region?

Yes I love Bridgeview =)

Hudson Valley Restaurant Week - March 9-22, 2015

I went to Ramiros 954 in Mahopac, I have nothing bad to say, sat at the bar, got Happy Hour prices on the drinks and ordered the restaurant week menu. All three courses were great, huge portions, beautiful presentations, the main course I got the pork shank...was incredible... great service too...highly recommend

Great crab legs in Westchester or Putnam

I'm still voting King Buffet in Peekskill, all you can eat and under $20

Where do you eat at the Palisades Mall?

Yardhoue food is terrible, all frozen food

The Hudson Room - new restaurant in Peekskill

I ate here, Had the porkchop entree which was absolutely great...Steak quesadilla app, was also delicious but too small for the price. Spicy tuna roll was just as good as any other place i've been, maybe I need to try a more adventurous roll to get the true experience...Good beer selection. Too much of a "snotty" vibe for me, it's downtown peeksill, loosen up your tie and relax a little. Menu looks good there was a few other dishes I'm interested in, I'll be back eventually, Too many places opening in Peekskill, got to try em all!

The RoundUp Texas BBQ .....In Cold Spring, NY......Excellent! ! !

Went there today, I've been there many times but brought a couple first timers.... My opinion has not changed it is amazing food, very amazing...not better than big w's however much easier of a drive for me. The staff is extremely friendly and it's always great seeing the owner or chef of a place walk around and say hi and ask how the food was. I will be back many more times to come. Not pictured but the sausage is great, easily the highlight of today's meal, followed by the ribs, Big W's sides are just so much better but the mac n cheese is good...mash potatoes, OK.

Lunch in Cold Spring?

Avoid the Cold Spring depot.........I can't recommend anything in walking distance but right on the edge of cold spring is round-about texas bbq and it is amazing.

Big E: 2014 food finds

Going on Monday can not wait, went the last 3 years!

AJs fish and chips, ossining

Dang I need to check that out

Ridge Hill New Eating Options:

Unlike Elevation Burger, 5 Napkin is a full service restaurant.

Cortlandt Manor Area

The Mac'n'Cheese is worth it

Lake George, any hound worthy take out spots?

Martha's for Ice Cream, Saltwater Cowboy I think is new but judging by what I read it's the new best thing in Lake George, seems like a big take out seafood place. Lastly of course there is the classic A&W roadside food stand

Brother Jimmy's BBQ [White Plains]

I went to the Union Square location didn't think it was bad for what it is, The wings were great and the Nacho's were a giant giant portion

Cortlandt Manor Area

Table 9 is good

Chopped: Hannah Hopkins of Dish in Ma HO pac

Lived in Mahopac almost 20 years, everyone says MAY-o-pack....the Muh Ho Pac way of saying it is how the old timers and high society types say it

German Food in Lower Hudson Valley?

Goulash in Danbury is wonderful, it's an Austrian restaurant but it might be worth a try for you, everything is fresh and made to order by an elderly austrian man who owns the place with his wife who'm seats and takes the orders.

juice/smoothies??? lower westchester

Juices For Life just opened in Yonkers, not in the best neighborhood but I hear the product is excellent.

Great crab legs in Westchester or Putnam

King Buffet in Peekskill, not bad

Best BBQ in Westchester?

Big W's chicken is one the the best and most jucy I have ever had so open your mind to it, Big W is king as far as BBQ is concerned, B-B-Q's in shrub oak is nothing special imo, good for locals, not worth traveling to. The place in cold spring is great too...texas something or other

Wild Fusion in Mohegan Lake?

Yeah I like it too, good sushi

Best BBQ in Westchester?

Q in Portchester is pretty good. http://www.qrestaurantandbar.com/

Best BBQ in Westchester?

Holy smokes chorizo is excellent, the only reason I go there and all though not nearly my favorite place, holy smoke is what a mile away from Bob-B-Que and it is better.

Memphis Mae's BBQ Bistro in Croton on Hudson

Yeah ive never had a problem there, I like the personable staff and the creative specials.

White Plains

Emma's Ale house in WP's. Love it.
