  • Top review: “Had a really great dinner experience. This place is small and can only seat about 15 people. We made a reservation for six so we did not have to wait to be seated. Simple menu but still took us some time to decide what to order. I order the crab cake for appetizer and steak for entrée. Crab cake was so soft and the sauce that came with it was delicious. Steak was amazing. I had mine medium but would definitely recommend medium rare. Steak came with mashed potatoes, asparagus, finger potatoes and carrots with a wine sauce. Everything on this plate was delicious and I finished every last bit of it. For dessert, we ordered the chocolate pots de crème and baked Nebraska. Chocolate was dense but good. The baked Nebraska was good. Loved the flambé show. Overall I highly recommend coming here. Chef also changes the menu periodically so it is worth a try!” — Daisy C.

If you want a comforting taste treat, try the Chicken Soup with a homemade roll or the Roasted Beets. The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming and the place itself is beautiful. It’s a great location to grab a bite before you catch the train or meet friends when your train arrives.” — Jill A.

  • Rated 4.5 out of 5 (268 reviews)
  • Price: $$
  • Address: 6242 Route 9
  • Top review: “Believe the hype! Good food does come from small restaurants. This tiny unassuming restaurant with the big reviews deserves every five star review it gets. The burger, voted one of the best in the Hudson Valley is phenomenal as is its vegetarian counterpart. The fries are not an afterthought. Actually, they vie for top billing! The service is friendly and attentive. The price is fair and reflective of the quality, except for the $6 up charge to add bacon. The dessert looks too good to pass up but alas it will need to wait until next time and there will be a next time!” — Cynthia B.

1. The Amsterdam

  • Rated 4 out of 5 (186 reviews)
  • Price: $$$
  • Address: 6380 Mill Street
  • Top review: “If there were 6 stars, I would give it 6. My girlfriend and I are foodies at heart, and came to Rhinebeck for a great meal so we decided on The Amsterdam. The atmosphere is a wonderful blend of old world Dutch with an eclectic vibe. We started off with the Winter Salad. Wow, it was perfectly balanced blend of radicchio, citrus and blue cheese crumbles. Moving on to our main course “The American Burger”…the absolute best burger I have EVER had. It’s an 11/10. Chef Eddie is a master his craft on preparation and execution, Paige and the waitstaff are excellent and do a great job of working as a team. The Amsterdam is truly a reflection of great leadership. We will be back and if you’re in the Hudson Valley this place is a “must” for anyone who loves great food and ambiance.” — Jeffrey V.
