joe willys seafood house- Fishkill, NY Great food!

My husband saw an episode of restaurant impossible with this place, so we went. ( I did not have high hopes) The food was great. Wonderful raw bar, loved the roasted oysters, and great quality fish. Nice space also!!! It is in front of splashdown.

Feedback on researched family NY visit appreciated

How about Tolouche after Wicked? Around the corner and they take reservations.( May be important on Sat) Great drinks and very good Mexican ( for NY). Skip Lambs clu
