What's good in Mahopac?

Kat_in_Ossining Feb 14, 2010 07:51 AM

I was in the area yesterday for a kids' birthday bowling party, and stopped in for lunch at Holy Smoke -- had some really great bbq chicken wings, and good ribs. What else is in the area that I should know about that's worth checking out? I'm more interested in casual dining than fine dining, but wondered if anyone had a a little-known gem of any kind they'd recommend in Mahopac. Could even be a bakery. Just want to know what to eat next time I have to go bowling! Thanks!

    Mahopac has a lot of Italian restaurants and pizza places. I recommend Gino's on Rt. 6 right in the center of town. The address is 597 Rt. 6.

    For pizza I like Cacciatori Pizzeria, 2 Mahopac plz which is also right in the center of town off 6n. Its a casual place but the pizza is really good and what I consider true NY style.

      Had dinner twice lately at Arianos on Clark Place in Mahopac. Thought it was very good and well priced. The owner is a bit of a character but very nice. Their pizzas are very good as was their shrimp parm and meatballs and spaghetti. Nice stmosphere. Good neighborhood italian

        Thanks for the recommendation, I'll have to check it out. While I love Italian it would be nice to see a little more diversity in the Mahopac dining scene.

      I can't believe I forgot one of my favorite places, Rick's Seafood. It's a fresh fish market by day and restaurant my night. It's a casual place serving very good seafood dishes. It's located on Rt. 6.

        Or you can try one of the 15 pizza places...they are all average at best.

        Red Mills Pub has a good burger (butcher is next door).

        I've been to Terrace Club a couple times and really enjoyed it. It's very refreshing to see a menu in Mahopac that actually changes with the seasons. It's pretty safe to say that it's the only one.

          I really like the pizza places in Mahopac, especially Cacciatori's and Gino's. Both are well above average. But I did grow up on these places so some of it might be nostalgia. At least the pizza places in Mahopac are owned and operated by Italian families unlike so many places in Manhattan.
