This was my first time here and I really enjoyed it. Three of us went for dinner, we had the Hangar Steak , Baby Lamb chops, and The Tile fish. All were delicious and cooked perfectly! The side's were fresh and home made. Salad's were great as well. Can't say enough good things about our experience. I hope it's always... More

I am rating this place on one night, one experience, two beers: I pulled in last night at 8:30 to use wifi and have a beer or so and it was odd enough to comment. Firstly, the gentleman behind the bar had little idea of what wifi was or how it worked, offered me a slip that had the password... More

Pleasant, low key place, with varied menu. Attentive service and not terribly crowded for a Friday night. Would definitely return.

We went in on a Saturday evening, were seated right away, but found it very noisy. The food was good, but our waitress didn't seem to want to be bothered with any questions. I wouldn't go back.

This is a nice restaurant right across the street from Vassar College. They specialize in light fare for lunch. Salads, burgers and a variety of sandwiches are available for lunch. My favorite is a burger with Cesar salad. They also have a good assortment of deserts available.

This is my family's favorite area restaurant. It has a friendly pub feel, the wait staff is excellent and the food is fabulous. We usually order one of the daily specials, but the regular items (I especially recommend the sauteed shrimp, tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto over pasta) also never disappoint. For a special treat, try their Sunday brunch. My wife... More

Perhaps the food selection and preparations are better for the dinner menu, but the lunch/brunch menu does not satisfy. Our waitress was pleasant, but did not communicate what the dishes actually contained and how they were prepared, no matter how many times she was asked; therefore, the plates we were served were quite different than what we expected, and we...

The Beech is near Vassar College and always has excellent, fresh and delicious food. There is a wonderful daily specials menu which is crafted daily by the chef. They make their own sausages, so if that is a choice, be sure to try it. Each item on the menu is wonderful so it is difficult to choose a favorite. We... More
