Every summer my son and I make our pilgrimage to the Catskills. We discovered the Chicken Run a few years ago and it has become our favorite stop. The food is awesome and prices are reasonable. My son loves Turkey Tuesday and the fun outdoor atmosphere with the tent and fire pit.Although the entire staff is great, our favorite waitress... More

It was like a big ol' outdoor house party. A band playing outdoors, kids running around doing cartwheels, a fire going in a firepit with Adirondack chairs around the fire. An open porch overlooking all of this. The large part of the restaurant is inside and we did not spend a second in there. The food was decent. Ribs and... More

Really surprised this place is the top ranked place in Windham. The "highly recommended" chicken dishes (dry rub and marinated) completely lacked flavor. Really disappointed. The sides (Cole slaw, baked beans, and vegetable special) were very good. The kids liked the burger and grilled cheese. Probably will not return.

The food here is great- the burgers are always fresh and so hot, it makes all of the difference. The staff was great and accommodating even though they were closing the kitchen to get ready for a New Year Eve Party.

Chicken Run was clean, and a great place for a large group. But if it is the #1 restaurant in Windham, NY, I'd be better off cooking in my condo. The food was ok, at best.
