“Historic setting, tasty dinner”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

We had the opportunity to visit the Tavern for dinner after along day at the Dutchess County Fair. Arriving at the Tavern, the first thing you notice is that the heavy handmade front door does not have a lock. It turns out that they never close so they don't need one. We arrived without reservations, but were seated promptly. We were offered a variety of seating locations, including the library, the tavern area and the sun porch. We elected for the sun porch so that we could enjoy the lovely view of Rhinebeck. Our server, Collin, was prompt, efficient and friendly. We had a variety of entrees including the crabcake pub burger, pasta primavera and a pot pie, as well as a steamed mussels appetizer. Beer on tap included a variety of local selections which was greatly appreciated. No ones glass was ever allowed to empty and we never wanted for anything during our meal (kudos to Collin). When it came time for dessert, we were equally pleased with our choices. The Tavern is very (really) old and we were encouraged to wander about and explore. If you enjoy history, this is certainly a place you do not want to miss. The Tavern seating area had a somewhat low ceiling and looks like a place we will be exploring the next time we have the opportunity to dine there.

“Pleasant dinner”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

My wife and I enjoyed steak dinners. Her bone-in sirloin was tasty, as was my filet. Service was fine, but a bit slow, given that we had informed the staff that we had an event to attend. Overall, I would recommend the Beekman Arms for dinner.

“Short ribs I would fly across the country for!!,”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

What a GREAT place!!! Here is the oldest Inn in America right there in Rhinebeck, NY. We visited the Inn the night before and saw how warmly we were greeted for just a look see. So..after a long day at Rockefeller Estate, we drove back there for dinner. Again what a warm welcome...and a fabulous dinner. Do not miss the opportunity to have the BEST short ribs ever!!! Ok my sister says...pot pie...good but she had a taste of mine and agrees. Excellent service also. Was fun to be in a place that was opened in 1677! Incredible. Please don't miss this if you are any where within 50 miles!!!

Average food in a pleasant setting on the historic Main Street in Rhinebeck. Salmon with lentils and kale was very good. Salad lacked advertised green beans and was exceedingly uninspired. Several desserts were unavailable but my wife liked her apple crisp
