Defiant Brewery Ribs Pearl River

Last night I went to the Defiant Brewery in Pearl River. We sat next to a man who ordered the ribs. On Fri and Sat. they bbq ribs. We decided to get an order, but decided way too late in the evening and the kitchen had closed. I regret not ordering them. They looked and smelled SO good. Best I've seen around Rockland, can't say how they tasted, but I have to get those ribs! Just curious has anyone had them?

  1. Michele,
    Since I love Capt Lawerance's beer and tasting room I was excited about visiting Defiant. I've been trying to go for months. I finally got there last month. Want a disappointment! Maybe it was an off night for them. The bar was full of dirty glasses. It took us 10 minutes to get a beer. We asked for a sample and were told no! NOT the frienldiest place I've been.The whole place was dirty and it just seem unorganized. If your looking for great beer and bar food try Peekskill Brewery, Bridgeview Tavern, Tap House , Lazy Boy or Jack Black.

      I was there on the early side. It wasn't dirty then, but as the night went on it got pretty crowded. The staff were very friendly too. Hope it was an off night for them, I'm going to give it another shot to see if we just weren't lucky. But the ribs looked really good. If these aren't up to expectations, I'll stick with Bailey's in Blauvelt. Thanks for the other recommendations!
