“Best restaurant around, worth driving to”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

This historic inn has been around for over a century and the new owners have brought the restored inn back to it's glory days, and the food is brilliant, and service is spectacular. They also have beautiful accommodations as well.

“New Owners upgrade”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

The stately Hidden Inn was recently acquired and renovated including the menu. I highly recommend the gnocchi with butternut squash although they are famous for their steak. The backyard gardens and gazebo are beautiful. The prices are reasonable considering the setting and offerings.

“Relaxed Atmosphere, Fantastic Food, Attentive Service”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

I’ve had several experiences at the Hidden Inn, all of them positive. When touring wedding venues in the fall of 2011, my (then) fiancé and I stopped in for lunch, and ate some phenomenal burgers and soup. When we settled on the Plum Tree down the street for our wedding venue, the Hidden Inn was the natural choice for our rehearsal dinner. It stands head and shoulders above other area restaurants, both in their ambiance and the quality of their food (although there are plenty of great greasy spoon places in the surrounding towns). The manager worked with us to plan a memorable evening with a delicious and eclectic menu. The food is inventive without being esoteric – there is something for anyone, from the food snob to the blue collar meat and potatoes guy. Some of the best gnocchi I’ve had anywhere, including NYC and DC. We rented out the Inn as well for the weekend. The four rooms are spacious and have a comfortable common room for hanging out and eating together. There were a few bumps in the road: some rooms lacked mirrors, some lacked air conditioning, one of the beds did not quite fit in its frame, and the rooms were not cleaned in between our first and second day. I believe we were among the first or second round of guests since fairly extensive renovations were done, so I assume that most of those issues have been remedied. A really great home base to explore this beautiful part of the Catskills. Highly recommended.

“New Chef, New Menu, New Staff......”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

By the title..should tell you they are trying, and tonight, everything from the service, to the new menu, to the chef........was excellent.....It was a Thursday evening in the upper Catskills, and the place was busy, time to make reservations for evenings in the future. Please give them a second chance as my family did tonight....We will be back again. The prime rib look excellent one of those guest in my party ordered, I tryed a different dish tonight, as well as the other 5 in our party, and everyone was saying how good it was. They have added central a/c, and a staff that is working hard to make all the guest happy, and the new menu, and the Chef. Thank you for listening to your customers in the past. Wishing you great success, and our family and friends will return, will get the word out..........
