Not so many draught beers but all of them are great (I've tried 4 out of 6). Kinda light Kolsch, almost authentic Dusseldorfer Altbier, smoky Irish Stout and seasonly brewed Winter Walsall with spicy finish! Food is ok - nothing special! But again - beer is worth the visit!

We live not far from the Gilded Otter so we know it's reputation and it's offerings. Both are superb. New Paltz is a quirky city, with one foot in the mountains & trails, and the other in the 1960's. The Gilded Otter is one of many reasons to make it a destination. If you're coming down from the trails, a... More

We drop into the guilded about once a month. Usually on a Friday evening. It's a great way to end the week. It has a great atmosphere & during the summer they have live music on at the weekends. It's a very relaxing environment & great for a snack or the full dinner. They have specials on every night of... More

The restaurant has a rustic look and feel, with heavy wooden tables and benches. The beer was great (pumpkin beer was special that night). Also Fish and Chips were very good, especially fish (chips were too salty for my taste but good). It was a big portion of fish, the batter was crispy and the sauce was very tasty. It... More

This past weekend on the way to our bimonthly visit to Albany we made a stop at an unheralded location for an awesome afternoon. Passing through New Paltz, my oldest daughter spotted the 'Gilded Otter ' and her exact words were "c'mon dad... with a name like that, it has got to be cool"; she was RIGHT!!! To start, the...

I've been here 4 or 5 times so far. I mostly go because of the atmosphere. The inside is clean and cozy, sitting outside is nice aswell. Food is average. My boyfriend likes to try the sample platter of beer.

I had a brown ale, fried cheese curd appetizer with spicy dip and puttanesca dip, and a meatball sub. The sub was huge, meaty, nice sauce and crusty bun. Big sandwich!! The decor is open with lots of tables, a large bar, clean bathrooms (probably because it's not a college hangout. Parking is plentiful.

Food is ok for pub food. Too loud. The tanks seem to be the problem. There are other places I would recommend.
