Covid-19 was foremost on our minds when we made our reservation. They allayed our fears as soon as we arrived. They placed us in the 3-season room by ourselves. The waitstaff wore rubber gloves as they served our dinners. When another party arrived, they placed them at the other end of the room - four empty tables between us. They assured us they disinfected the table and chairs between seatings, washed the doors and doorknobs approximately every hour with disinfectant wipes and didn't set the table until the guests arrived at the tables. We had a wonderful dining experience in the wake of troubling times. Dinner was excellent, too!

Our server was very attentive and friendly. The manager was insistent that they try to rectify a drink I didn’t care for, she was very accommodating. When staff saw me hobbling up to the front door with my walker a young lady bolted outside to assist me and helped me safely all the way to my seat.
Frankly, I think some of the lunch prices are a little steep and I think a broader offering in sandwiches would be a good step. However, the potato chips were outstanding.
The charm of the Inn and your current staff are the secret to our successful luncheon to celebrate our friends promotion. Thank you.

Have had better nights at the Beek. Where to start. Excellent young waiter.
Cheese plate not served at room temp.
Prime rib King cut small. Dessert special, strawberry tart, was poor. Crust was soggy.

Upside remains the ambiance of the green house.

The waiter here served my husband nuts after being told/asked SIX separate times if the dish was safe. When we asked how it could have happened the manager said the waiter didn't write it on the order. The manager of the restaurant drove us to the hospital in a car that stunk of weed and when I called later to ask questions was incredibly rude, suggesting that no one was the blame- I would argue both the waiter and he are to blame- properly train your staff on allergies!!!!!

For our 35th wedding anniversary, we decided a quiet brunch, just the two of us, was the perfect way to spend the morning. And it was, simply perfect. Thank you.

Always great at the tavern. Almost always, lunch time is much better. Food was thrown together as if they were not expecting anyone. Will be back for normal lunch.

The ambience is great, and the food is good but a little uninspired. They need to get more creative with their menu. The most creative thing available for brunch was quiche.

Our table for four was in the tavern close to the bar. I booked it on line, stating that this was a birthday celebration. Would have preferred a different location because of the "energetic " bar crowd. The tavern is very quant and has a lot of history! Great for an evening at the bar but abit loud for a special occasion. As I stated in the survey everything else was good! Would definitely go back just to sit at the bar for cocktails!

We celebrated my birthday by having dinner at The Tavern. The food was delicious and the service was great. You really can’t beat the ambiance, it’s almost as if you’ve stepped back in time, so rustic and charming! Will definitely return again soon.

It’s a very pretty place. The bar is cool. The inside is good . The food was excellent. We had a very pleasant time. Slightly slow but I think it was just because if being the day after Christmas

I really think the terrace room is far too bright. It actually hurt our eyes. People don’t look good in bright lights. It was like a room for surgery . It would make the ambience a 5 star if the lights were dimmed

We had a lovely time. Next time I’ll bring sunglasses at night

Our recent visit to the Tavern at Beekman Arms was a delight. We were there around the holidays, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We were there for the lunch buffet. The prime rib at the carving station was delicious, and ham, turkey, mashed potatoes and gluten-free lentils , and anassortlent of gourmet desserts and salads were wonderful, too.

The atmosphere is bright, cozy, and reminiscent of early America.
With roaring fireplaces, some large beamed ceilings, and an early American sleigh in front of the Inn, Beekman Arms has the feeling of stepping back in history, to a simpler time.

One can easily imagine what it may have been like in the day of George Washington, who is said to have stayed at the Delamater Inn, adjacent to the Tavern.

A pleasant experience....Highly recommend!

Although I have said I would not recommend this restaurant to friends, that is based on the mediocre food and service. Simply put, the food is dull and the service, though pleasant, was not very professional. Also, the servers were kind of sloppy in their appearance. Salmon burger was ok, beef burger was good, but the food is plated without any style. My side salad came without dressing.
All of this being said, the ambiance is this historic inn, with its wonderful lobby fireplace and dark paneled rooms makes for a very pleasant way to while away a winter's afternoon. Maybe just go but with no expectations about the food.

We were seated promptly. We ordered and waited for the delicious looking basket of bread to arrive as it had at the tables around us. Ours never did. The appetizers were lovely. Then our entrees came out and one was a totally different dish than was ordered. They took that away, and out of courtesy we all waited to eat. It was about another 10 -15 minutes before it came back ( rigatoni bolognese shouldn’t take long). Afterwards, dessert came out , but the coffee was luke warm. So we had to wait for them to make a new pot. Another oddly long wait. The waitress went off after bringing hot coffee, but had left no sugar/sweetener for the coffee. We informed her and then waited an oddly long time to get that too( 5 - 10 min) . It was too bad, because the service really detracted from some great food.

Annual dinner with daughters. As usual food was good. Loved the beet appetizer salad. Prime rib was done to perfection but cooked rather quickly. One daughter had the short ribs which are always delicious; other daughter had the stuffed shrimp which she totally finished. Completed the meal with dessert. One flourless chocolate torte and two coffee creme brûlée’s. Divine.

My friends and I went to the Beekman Arms for a special holiday lunch. The menu was limited and nothing special. BLT? Turkey panini? (which was on toast). The soup was not heated through. Our waiter made our less than average experience slightly better by going above and beyond for us. He was a gem. However, once he left his shift, our dirty plates stayed in front of us for an hour until we left. I am a loyal patron and recommended it to my friends, but came away so disappointed and embarrassed.

Great experience. Fantastic food. Great Service. There was a wedding going on in a privet section and the main dinning area was energetic, so the hostess asked if we would like a quit area, and she did seat us in a section that was nice and quiet.

Wonderful Wednesday night with a live musician in the bar.
Our salads were fresh tasting local greens with a delightful vinaigrette.
It was burger night so we tried those instead of the regular menu. The burgers were nice and juicy with terrific accompaniments of mushrooms, bacon, etc.
A couple good local beers on tap.
Personable service

Our lunch was disturbed by the table next to us. The noise level coming from it made it impossible to speak in a normal tone of voice. I have a suspicion that the tables have been moved closer together in order to increase seating capacity and that works fine as long as you're not next to a large group of loud people which is what happened to us on Friday.
