Great Beer
Established in 2010 by Tim Reinke and John Sharp, the Birdsall House quickly became a destination for craft beer and locally sourced cuisine (some from our own garden!) in the Hudson Valley. Chef Sturgess Spanos, a French-trained veteran, showcases his talent and flair for innovation, which compliment the gastropub's beer-centric beverage program. The Birdsall House Beer Garden opened in 2011 offering patio dining and picnic tables for groups to congregate and socialize over a pint. We look forward to your visit.

This was the first time my wife and I had been to Birdsall House. The food was excellent. Great beer selection. It was a beautiful night to sit outside and they have live music from a band. I definitely plan on going back.

The lamb sliders and beet salad were delicious. California burger was tasty, but not cooked as we ordered. We sat outside since it was a cool evening and I faced the painted murals on the building which are beautiful. Diverse diners, which I like. Think a few plantings and or flowers would be a nice touch.

We came for lunch to celebrate an anniversary and also to celebrate eating together as a group. Everything was awesome. Sat outside on a beautiful picnic table. Given great recommendations. They make awesome ketchup and mustard.

Good food, friendly staff and excellent beer selection. Prices are fair. The outdoor space is excellent but charmless. Maybe some planters by the metal gate would work to separate the dining space from the street. I would recommend this.

The food and beer at Birdsall House were excellent as usual.
We were sitting outside in the garden, as we prefer, but the noise level from traffic (big trucks, noisy motocycles) on Peekskill’s Main Street was much greater/worse than usual.
We’ve sat out there before and it was much less noisy.
So this is the noise level and ambience I’m commenting on.

We did outdoor dining, the patio space was spacious, lots of fresh air and live music. The place was busy but the staff did their best to make sure we were tended to. The food was also quite good and reasonably priced . I liked that the brunch was a bit more interesting than the typical eggs and bacon type options.

Overall I would recommend and come back again.

We had a reservation to eat outside but when we arrived no outside tables were available. We waited 15 minutes at the bar. Once seated we were told the kitchen would not take orders for 20 minutes and we could expect to eat in 45 minutes. We asked for water twice and did not receive it.
The food was excellent and the atmosphere great but service needs improvement.

Was really looking forward to nice Spring evening out with my 77-yr old mom and a friend of mine. We had a reservation for 6:45 outside in the garden. The only reason we didn't get up and leave was because it was a lovely Saturday night and we had a corner table in the front, people watching (through the fence) and enjoying just being out.

We ordered simply: a cheese plate for my friend, mom had a burger (no bun or fries, sub-out for veggies) I had the salmon (no potato, sub-out for side salad.) And just water - seltzer for my friend and a glass of wine for me. It took OVER 90 MINUTES to get our food!!! The waitress kept coming over to apologize that the kitchen was really backed-up as it was such a busy night. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!! We eventually asked for something while we continued to wait, so the waitress brought over some tortilla chips. We asked for the manager, and JUST as the food was served, he came over - we had to ask for another round of drinks - which they should have brought out prior to us asking. And THEN - mom's burger was totally overcooked, my salmon was dry (and I ordered it rare,) they brought the fries we didn't want, and then brought out the asparagus.

At least they did not charge us for the drinks...but I will never go back for food. The garden itself is lovely - they did a nice job on the ambiance with murals on the wall of the building, and they tables spaced adequately. With Spring fever here, and people getting outside, they should have been better prepared, especially for a Saturday night.

The service and ambiance of birdsall house was and always is top notch. The drinks are also incredible. I’m also though very underwhelmed by the vegetarian options. I have beyond burgers at home and same goes for a stir fry. Would be great to have a vegetarian topping for the nachos and some additional veg and gluten free appetizer items. Would also be great if there were gluten free vegetarian entree options too. Maybe a gluten free burger bun option and a GF pasta ?

The food is consistently excellent. We only have eaten the vegetarian options and they are delicious. The beet salad is extraordinary. The ambience is that of a bar/neighborhood hangout, nothing fancy. They have a lively outside dining/drinking space. Service is accommodating and friendly.

We’ve gone to Birdsall House several times before, and have never been disappointed. Service is always good, servers are personable and professional, and we are often greeted by one of the owners. On our last visit the owner insisted on bringing a side of fries after we erroneously thought they were included in an order and politely declined his first offer to bring them out. Very nice of him! Food is always delish and we like the laid-back atmosphere of the outdoor seating.

People I know have been turned off by the prices, because it's easy to compare, say, a burger for $15 with a burger for $6, even though they are totally different levels of quality. Everything was absolutely amazing here, the staff was above and beyond and it was a great time all around.

We went there Friday lunch. At that time not much people yet and we choose to eat outdoor. Staff are friendly. My wife liked their food but since I ordered the Birdsall Burger with bacon but burger is a burger. On a weekend, the place will be packed according to our server. There is a municipal parking accross. Don't park next door since its a private parking.

Cannot believe that not ONE of the 5 outdoor heaters was working...and no one knew why or if they were filled with proplane. When you advertise outdoor seating in Westchester County in March--during a pandemic--that seems like false advertising to me.Shame on them.

We haven’t been out to eat since October so as soon as the weather got warm enough, we took advantage of the beautiful day and dined outdoors at birdsall house. We enjoyed the fish and chip special and cocktails were good as well. We love coming here! They have heaters and fire pits. Go enjoy

Sitting inside is a different experience than sitting outside. (Outside is so much better) there was suppose to be a brunch prefix menu and there wasn’t and they ran out of certain dishes on the menu.

I will definitely try this place again but I hope they resolve some of the issues
