We visited by chance last week as a group of 11(!) at peak lunchtime. We just about filled the remaining seats of the diner but the reception was very friendly and welcoming. The choice was wide and varied and the staff in good humour. When the food came (many different choices amongst our group) it was all fresh and excellent.... More

My wife and i stopped here for breakfast on our way to Manchester, Vt. The atmosphere was very accommodating and the waitress was excellent. We opted for pancakes and also ordered a juice and a side of ham. We will definately stop again if in the area.

Amid classic sixties decor we enjoyed very good straightforward food at a very reasonable price. Liked it so much at lunch that we went back for dinner.

Happened on Dad's on the way from Hillsdale to NY. The menu is extensive and the food was excellent. Service was courteous and swift just as it used to be years ago. We felt more like invited guests than customers. Will always eat there when we are in the area.

Visited Dad's while on a day trip after seeing the Copake/ Bash Bish falls nearby, on suggestion from a friend. We had a cross section of selections from the menu for dinner, and everything was fantastic. Service is tops, and you can feel the hospitality and attention given to regular customers likewise given to us visitors not from the area.... More

Our sons attend a nearby camp. On visiting day the place is a must stop for its soft serve ice cream. You wont be disappointed.

We make sure to include Dad's in any trip to Copake. The food is fresh and the staff are always so accommodating, even when I invent my own salad. They use fresh ingredients, make great burgers and their malteds are a real treat. Definitely worth the stop!
