Near Storm King

  • 9

We need a place for a late Sunday lunch after visiting Storm King. Will be coming from and returning
to Englewood NJ. Any ideas?

  1. For a nice sit down meal, Painter's Tavern in Cornwall-on-Hudson is a great, relaxed place for a Sunday lunch (they have a good brunch, too). Also, Hudson Street Cafe in Cornwall-on-Hudson is very nice.

    For a more casual experience, I recommend Woody's All Natural in Cornwall. Excellent burgers, fries, onion hay, chili and milkshakes made with Jane's Ice Cream.

    1. Went to Woody's All Natural in Cornwall on Sunday for the first time. It was very nice. While the burgers were a little expensive at $6.50 for a small-sized burger that you order at the counter and is put on a tray, but the meat tasted very fresh. They say it's from a local supplier. But better than the burger was their onion hay. I would've preferred it just slightly more well-done, but the floured shreds of fried onions were delicious, and the order surely was large enough for my sister and me to share. Their fries were cut thin and made crispy, and we both shared an order of these too. I recommend both the onion hay and the fries.

      One problem we noted was that while we both ordered our burgers "Medium", mine came well-done (no pink at all & slightly dry) while hers came medium-rare! Her's was very pink, almost red. She preferred it that way to my well-done burger! So the cook is inconsistent. I'm not sure how we'll order it next time, although perhaps the idea is for us to try their tuna melt, fish & chips, hot dog (maybe with chili), salad, chicken fingers, barbecued pork sandwich....There is alot to choose from at this counter-service place, so maybe we won't ever order burgers again? Oh, they also serve Jane's ice cream which I hear is great, so that's a possibility for the future too.

      Oh, we went on a hot day, and they do have a wall air conditioner plus ceiling fans, but the place was not overly cold. Still, while slightly warm it was comfortable. Definitely worth giving a try, although I'm not familiar with other restaurants in the area.

      1. River Grill in Newburgh is a terrific location, right smack on the Hudson, with some excellent cuisine to match. Less than 15 min away. Or cross the bridge to Beacon, lots of places, Max's on Main has some nice pubby food...

          Thanks Menton1. I go to Newburgh every month for a doll club meeting, so maybe we'll try the River Grill for our holiday party? Their menu sounds good, and I like that they have parking across the street. Too bad we just had our summer outing. But like I said, maybe for our holiday party?

          I've never crossed the bridge to Beacon! Maybe I should? Are there good antique shops too? A day of shopping for antiques followed by Max's sounds like fun.

          1. re: barbgail61

            Yes, you should! Hmm, there might be an antique shop, I'm not sure, but there are mainly art galleries and many other types of interesting and quirky shops. It is worth crossing at some point to check it out anyway ;-) Also some good places for ice cream or dessert over there too.

            1. re: Solstice444

              Can you recommend places for ice cream (Okay, and dessert too. We may as well go all out!) in Beacon? My sister and I are game on crossing the bridge from Newburgh! Thanks!

                Zora Dora's Paleteria has delicious homemade popsicles - some milk based and some water based, and they have really interesting flavors and use local ingredients in many of their popsicles. The Beacon Creamery carries Jane's ice cream which I believe is made in Kingston. School of Jellyfish has chocolate, I've never been there but have heard good things.

                If you are looking for places to eat lunch/dinner too, Poppy's has amazing burgers from local grass fed meat, it's a casual place. I like Sukhothai for Thai food. Max's on Main has good pub food as menton1 mentioned, and it's a step up from typical pub fare in my opinion. Chill Wine Bar is nice for wine and small plates or paninis. There are a ton of other restaurants in the area too that are supposed to be good, and everything I've mentioned is on Main Street in Beacon.

              We just went to Pete's Hot Dogs in Newburgh on the way home from Apple Picking. If you want a quick inexpensive tasty good sized dog stop in there. It's on 9W. They only serve dogs and chips. Open since the 30's.
