Excellent Restaurant/Bar with a breath taking view next to the Hudson in Ossining. Delicious seafood, great staff and amazing drinks. They usually have a DJ during the weekends in the summer.

Not a dining view but still fun to be by the water. Simple place but I really like it. It's easy to get to near the train station and they have their own parking

We have been here many times and it never disappoints! We often go for whatever the fish special is , as this is probably the freshest, yet the burgers, pasta and steaks are all delicious as well!

We live nearby and have given this restaurant several chances from 2014 - 2016 for lunch and dinner, thanks to its great location on the Hudson and friends at nearby yacht club (cannot indicate this on TripAdvisor prompts for which meals did we have and when). Pretty much have tried almost everything on the menu. Standard menu items have been... More

I read the reviews for this place before we went. I think patron experiences varied depending of time of year and time of day. Some of the reviews weren't so great, but we went hoping those people were just hard to please. We were there at 5p and there was only 1 other couple there for dinner then. So we... More

We had delicious corn and shrimp chowder followed by a tuna burger for my husband and goat cheese beer salad for me. Loved it!

As a trade-off to that Willy Nelson kicked back, Jimmy Buffet vibe you don't get quite the run-rabbit-run service a Westchester resident might have come to rely on. Certainly that's the case with the very chill and well-located bar on the water known as "The Boat House". And give the proprietor's credit for not just choosing a name that went... More

Had lunch here with a couple of friends on a quiet Friday afternoon. This would be a great place in the summer as the location on the water is great. The seafood pie was packed with fish and seafood and topped with puff pastry and was absolutely delicious. My friend had the crab cake sandwich- I have never seen such... More
