More on the fine dining end of the spectrum, I was pleasantly pleased to see some good vegetarian options and, amazingly, 4 different non-alcoholic beers! Also, they seem to try hard to feature locally raised chicken, beef, etc as available - a good thing.

Went there with my 2 boys after a good day of hiking. We had our diner on the terrasse. Everything was very nice. Good burgers and pasta. A good place to eat if you are looking for something not fancy but genuine.

Tried to eat at the Ausable Inn twice in two weeks. Both times were on a Sunday, and both times we walked in to a half-full place both inside and out, and both times we were asked if we had reservations. I looked around and...More

We love the food. Duck wings, mushroom soup, it was all great. I brought my son a couple of years ago, and we ended up eating here twice on our trip. Same happened with my husband this time. Excellent food.

We will try Baxter Mountain next year for sure. We saw it, but went to the Ausable Inn. I'm sorry you have such a distaste for NJ & people that invest there. It seems Keene/Keene Valley is thriving. We enjoyed seeing more... More
