This was our third trip to the Peekamoose, the last one being 2 1/2 years ago. The first time was perfect, the second time we experienced several flubs. We always wondered if the restaurant had worked out the kinks. You would think from the most recent reviews that it had. It hasn't. And we are not going back. The host... More

We always eat at the Peekamoose, when we are in the catskill area. Their selection of gourmet appetizers and main courses is amazing. Our host and waitstaff are always very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable.. The bar area is very comfortable especially if you just want a drink and appetizers and they make you feel very welcome to do so. Dont... More

Such a great spot. Our innkeeper recommended this as THE place to eat. Well, he was right. Everything....from the décor to the music, the service, the wine list, the food....a home run. I can see why it's so popular. I'm glad it wasn't super busy, but a nice crowd. Check out the bar area too...very chill, and good for a... More

This restaurant raises the bar of dining in the Catskills. The rustic, non-cutesy atmosphere is complementary to their inventive menu. Sophistication at it's best, whithout being "phony". My favorite place to sit is the bar area. The staff is fantastic. Their home-made pastrami is TO DIE FOR!

I was saddened to read your review. I recall your large group here very clearly, as I personally oversaw your dining experience. Once you and your husband had cut into a small portion of the end of the grilled steak and had made a complaint about it not being medium rare - I removed your plates, proceeded to the kitchen,...

Food was excellent, I can vouch for the striped bass and pasta. Salads and Charcouterie also. Service was great as well.

The Peekamoose restaurant had such oyutstanding dishes. Three of us had the steak. Two of the three were done perfectly and ythe other was a bit over cooked. I would suggest getting it medium rare to rare. The more cooked,the tougher. The appetizers were great. The bread was also quite tasty. I would also recommend highly the ice cream sampler.... More

My only regret is I haven't been here sooner. To begin the dining room is a cool intimate setting with candles, fireplace and stunning chandelier of tree branches resembling deer antlers. Staff was welcoming and warm. I started with the carmelized onion tart that was such a unique blend of sweet onion, pastry and goat cheese. Yea sounds crazy right,... More

You walk up the stairs and it's awesome. There's a fire outside where kids and adults are cooking marshmallows. Whaaat? While waiting for a table, the bartender suggested a few drinks and, I have to tell you...fantastic. My girlfriend had a Prickly pear and I had a local beer.
