My husband and I enjoyed a 3 course prix fixed dinner on a beautiful Sunday evening on their rooftop. We enjoyed two different salads, caprese and a watermelon salad with feta and mint. Both delicious. For our entrees my husband ordered their classic burger and I had the bourbon pineapple chicken. He was happy with his, which was quite generous. My portion seemed a bit skimpy. The potatoes and veggies were few and the chicken also was minimal. The chicken also was not served as a cutlet but appeared to be tenders. It was tasty but wish there had been a bit more. Our choice of dessert was sherbet or churros with vanilla ice cream. We had the churros which were warm and crunchy yet moist on the inside, delicious! We will be back!

Party of 5 and all agreed the food was exceptional. Three of our 5 had a little trouble with stairs so not sure about accessibility. We arrived on open mike nite. The noise was a distraction and detracted from the food and conversation. Staff and owner were very responsive in closing a door and unplugging a crackly speaker. Food was great! Owner may want to consider an alternative to this type of music. It should be all about the food which was worth the trip.

The owner, Gary was degrading, unprofessional & dishonorable.

After we ate at Hudson Anchor, both my husband and I felt ill after our meal, so I called the owner, Gary. In speaking to him I also told him we were overcharged for an appetizer. He initially promised to credit the appetizer & after several days, he hadn't taken care of it. When I texted him to remind him, he texted me & offered for us to come back & he'll take 25% off our bill in lieu of issuing the credit.

We asked for the credit again & it was still not taken care of after a week. When I texted him again I asked him for a credit in full as this has gone on for several weeks without resolution. He immediately texted back "I'll issue a FULL refund". A week later, he issued a $14 credit, not the credit in FULL as he promised via text. When I asked him today to please issue the remaining credit so we can wrap this up he wrote back "Never in my life in the three different businesses I’ve had did anybody ever do what you’re doing to me have a nice day this issue is now closed".

This review could have easily been how the owner turned a bad meal into a great customer experience.

Gary, the owner could have done the right thing from the beginning & we would have a glowing review.

Very pleased! We sat outside upstairs overlooking the Hudson River. Nicki, our server was delightful. The owner came over many times to check on us. Food is great and the ambiance is also great. Loved the bar on the first floor with a nautical theme. We will definitely go back.

We so looked forward to our dinner but we’re told there was NO outdoor seating since we had not asked for it when we reserved ( no one told us we should). Our reservation was for 7:30pm and our first course did not arrive until 9pm. We decided not to order seconds on drinks for fear that they would take way too long to arrive. Our waitress Nikki was LOVELY and so apologetic for the slowness of the kitchen. When the entrees finally did arrive the food was delicious but we were all annoyed.
Would NOT recommend.

Went for brunch & they didn't have Canadian bacon for eggs. Benedict. Stores in area carry Canadian bacon & we were the second table there. They were not
busy at all but kept blaming the fact that their bus boys were all out. There were only 5 tables with3 or 4 people at each the entire time we were there Service was horrendous. Food was just Luke warm. Took us 2 1/2 hours to get out of there. Will not go back.

Very friendly atmosphere. The owner came by to check on everything and have a conversation. Food is delicious. It is charming inside. Decor reminds me of a ship. It was very hot that day so I did not get a chance to check out the roof top which has great views of the Hudson river. Already planning my next visit.

This was our second time to Hudson Anchor and we were just as impressed as the first time. It was very empty and I honestly have no idea why the place not jammed with people on a lovely Sunday at 5 PM. We ate on the rooftop which was lovely but we have also eaten inside as well. The food is really great with the only warning being to be sure to bring your appetite! I hope others will try this place so it will stay in business! This is going to be our "go-to" place!

Nice find with a small rooftop dining area. Went for Fathers Day brunch. Food was good. Drinks on the weaker side. Only change I would make is if you have a limited menu for a holiday, you should have everything on the menu ready to be ordered. I really would have loved to try the brussel sprouts.

The deck outside is nice. We had a waiter who had just started working there so he was a little rusty! We made a reservation but the hostess made a mistake and said the table wasn’t ready ,so we sat at the bar for a while and then the owner realized the table was ready for us for the whole time we waited. Food was good.

While the ambience was superb (we sat on the rooftop deck with a view of the Hudson River), the food was inedible. Too much salt on everything. Poached eggs had runny whites (they should be firm). Wait staff claimed that they never had the problem before.

Went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We all loved it! The food, location, service, etc. were outstanding! Our only complaint was the loud music playing in the background. Although they did lower it, the room was too small to allow for loud music; maybe some soft jazz or classical music would have been preferable.

We came in before our reservation time to get a drink. We ordered one through the hostess and then moved further down the bar to get the bartenders attention so we could order one more round. We finished our drinks and then were taken upstairs to sit outside. We noticed there were only two other tables up there seated/one downstairs still left so it was pretty quiet. Upon sitting down, our server got us menus and asked right away if we were ready to order to which we said we’d need just one minute. Once he left, we didn’t see him again... we waited a good fifteen minutes for our server to come back. We noticed he was serving drinks to the other two tables but never came back to us. At one point, I asked the bus boy walking by if we could place our dinner order with him and he said no and that he would get our server... the server never came (we waited another 5 minutes). We then left our table and went to the bar to settle our tab from earlier and left. The bartender was an owner and was super apologetic about things and felt really bad. After that sort of service on such a slow night, we will never go back.

Great food, very nice owners. We had dinner here the night of the Kentucky Derby and it was very busy in the bar, as would be expected. We sat in the bar at the back of the restaurant to watch the race and then went down to the front to eat. We had a nice view of the river in the distance from the front window. The food was excellent. We were a party of 6, and everyone was very happy with their meal. It took awhile for the food to come due to the crowd, but the owners came to check on us multiple times, and even gave us each an after dinner drink on the house to apologize for the wait. We were enjoying ourselves so much, it didn't bother us to wait anyway. We will definitely come back again, probably when the weather is warmer to sit outside on the roof deck.

The ownership welcomed us, and gave us a free drink since our table was not ready on time. The view was just what we wanted. The price was in our range and the service was quick. Other staff were also friendly. We will be back.

Service was excellent but we were the only ones in there (at 12:30p on a Sunday) for brunch. It was completely empty. Drinks were ok but food was not good (uncooked slimy eggs in Benedict with low quality crab cakes which were inedible; French toast was uncooked; cornbread was good though). Would not go in there again.

Birthday celebration for a dear friend who loves fish. This was a culinary delight! Food was outstanding from the salmon, tuna and grilled shrimp to the dessert. Nice wine section but fanatic service! Plenty of free street parking. We had a wonderful time.

Food was fantastic but they had a huge party and the people at the bar area were crowding around our table as we ate dinner. It was very uncomfortable and very loud. The owner called the day before to let us know abt the party, but unfortunately, the message did not record.

This restaurant does not deserve the one star I was forced to give. We were two couples; each of us had to send our entrees back...way too salty, smelly fish. Very unpleasant experience to say the least. Don’t waste your time and money.

First time visit. Pleasantly surprised. Attentive service, good food and quite atmosphere in the upstairs area. I’m sure it will be even nicer in the better weather on the terrace. Will plan on revisiting!
