We were near Hudson NY in the town of Palenville. Fernwood Restaurant was listed in Trip Advisor and there were others a distance away. While Fernwood is really tucked away in a residential area and took us a bit to find the effort paid off....More

Jenny makes the best pies in the region. Amazing Pizza Night (Thursday) and Taco Tuesday. We have my son's birthday parties here. There is frequently live music and the charm and grace of of the owners and staff are amazing.

Without my local host's recommendation, I would not have found such a comfortable local gem. The food was excellent. The fillet was cooked perfectly and a month later my partner is still raving about the pumpkin soup as the highlight of our year long romance!...More
