I only had an appetizer, but it was superb. I really mean superb. The restaurant hadn't changed from the days in the 1950's and 1960's as far as warmth and friendliness. Our waitress kept us entertainment with a fun patter of chatter.

I haven't eaten here in many years so I figured that it was time to go and check it out. We started out with the shrimp cocktail and it was okay. The cocktail sauce tasted a little watered down and the shrimp were okay. The salad was very, very good. I ordered the seafood platter and the scallops were awesome... More

My family has been eating at this resturant for as long as it has been owned by the current ownership and for good reason. They serve consistently excellent meals and are reasonably priced as anyone else in the Hudson valley. Anyone looking for a resturant for a special occasion should have theBowery Dugout on their short list.

We have been going to this restaurant for decades!! It is fresh seafood, not previously frozen like at restaurant chains. The service is always top notch just like the food. Love this place!

The food is great, expensive but worth it. Sea food is their specialty and the cook it right. Not over cooked like most resterants.

If you love sea food this is the place to be. Staff is wonderful. Food is fresh. It has plenty of options for people who do not like sea food.

The place is small, so tables are close together. Do not bring a cat to swing. Downstairs is darker and funkier, if that's your preference. The food has consistently been outstanding, portions are generous--we always have to bring some home--and the service is very friendly. Knowledgeable and attentive staff take care of you but aren't bothersome. They are mostly a... More

My husband surprised me this year with reservations to the Bowery Dugout for dinner. He definitely gets thumbs up for his choice. These folks are so warm and thoughtful from the moment that you open the door. The food was so amazing that I hardly have words !! We started out with an appetizer of alligator bites (which I have...

This is a basement restaurant with no pretensions of elegance. The atmosphere is "whimsical" but the menu is solid, the food was very good and prices reasonable. The best shrimp salad (it was in a wrap but available as salad) that I have ever had. My partner's shrimp scampi on linguini was just right. Their specialty is seafood.

The service is attentive and the food is OK, but it is the ambience (the downstairs rooms in particular) that's funky, authentic and worth experiencing. It seems like the restaurant has been there forever and the owners know what they're doing - providing seafood dishes to the locals year in and year out.....When we go, we usually have a martini...
