Casual birthday lunch on the Hudson

I'm looking for a recommendation for a casual but nice birthday lunch on the Hudson (any town within 50 miles of NYC) with river views. The only other requirement would be that the restaurant should be baby-friendly (at least for lunch). Any cuisine works.

  1. X20 in Yonkers

    71 Water Grant St
    Yonkers, NY 10701
    (914) 965-1111

    1. Red Hat in Irvington, but you might need to call about "baby friendly" - depends on the baby/baby's age, I imagine.

      1. I should have mentioned this would be a Saturday lunch. Nether Red Hat or X20 seem to be open for Saturday lunch.

          Hmm, that could be tricky. I was going to suggest Half Moon, since it's more baby friendly than either x2o or Red Hat, but they are not open for Saturday lunch either.

        2. Would Poughkeepsie Ice House be too far for you? It's right next to the Walkway. I've brought my young kids here.

          1. The River club in Nyack might fit the bill . Heavy on seafood , but other things on the menu . There is some dredging going on right outside to fix some Sandy storm problems ., but depending on where you sit your view might be better or worse .They have glass around much of the building , you can see the Tappan Zee bridge on the other side . I think most restaurants are baby friendly at lunch on the weekend . . .Nyack is a cute touristy place on a Fall weekend as well.
            I think also that if you let places know its for a birthday they will be more accomo
