This is the old opera house in Oak Hill, now being run as a restaurant. The wood work is worth the trip. The place looks like the Keebler Elves live there. Food is fresh and prepared when ordered. Very good sandwiches and soups. Worth the...More

What a hidden gem. The building used to be an opera hall. The stage is still there but some very creative minds added charm and an intimate decor that is unique. Natural wood abounds, adding support, small intimate dining areas, railings. Food that was served...More

I love this place! The Yellow Deli is not a deli in the traditional "walk in and order a tuna sandwich and a coke" way. It is an adorable and cozy restaurant on the Catskill Creek. They have a tiered outdoor terrace overlooking the creek,...More

Limited menu, a bit of a wait but fresh cooked and delicious . Craftsmanship is amazing! Like being in a giant treehouse.

Enjoyed not only the meal but the atmosphere and staff. The chili is terrific and the carrot cake is outstanding. What a pleasure to find this place. Worth the drive.

First, the inside of this restaurant is amazing. Hand-carved wood abounds. It's like eating in a Swiss Family Robinson treehouse. Someone told us that it was worth going to look at the restaurant alone, and she was right. The care and attention that went into...More

My cousin and I stumbled on this wonderful restaurant for lunch while researching our roots in the area of Durham, New York. The sandwiches were great and it is so unique and welcoming on the inside. Once an old opera house they have done an...More
