We loved Birdsall when it first opened. We went for some beers and calamari recently. The bartender ignored us for a while even though it was not a crowded bar. The beer selection was not the best ( no pilsners, lots of pumpkin ales) and the calamari was cold and not really edible. We are in no hurry to go... More

So sad what has happened to this place. Visited last year & loved it, but not so much this past Sunday evening. Hate writing poor reviews, but this place needs some serious work. All we ordered were apps & drinks, yet we couldn't get out of there in under 3 hours with one thing arriving as ordered! Apps took forever.... More

I don't know what issue the one recent negative reviewer had, I disagree with him! I was in town on business and met my sister and nieces out to eat. We picked this place because of their craft beer menu and my sister said the food was good. It was a beautiful warm evening so we sat outside. I will... More

One the advice of Westchester Magazine we went to the Birdsall Inn in Peekskill. We were seated outside which was eye opening. We left Peekskill and were transported to a garden somewhere else. Very hippy crowd, doogies allowed, fun vibe. Felt like we were in upstate NY. Live band easy listening nice sounds through dinner. We both had the steak... More

The inside of this restaurant is just awful, old and ugly. However, the outside eating area is kinda nice, although far from elegant. The food, however, was great. I had the BLT with fried green tomatoes, thick delicious bacon and some kind of wonderful multi grain bread. My companions had the corned beef sandwich and the beet and quinoa burger.... More

We dined here last Saturday evening and really enjoyed ourselves. The food is delicious and very generous in portion size. Lots of tap and bottled beer to choose from and an option of outdoor seating with live music - just a great way to spend a summer evening. Sharon, our server, is a pro and she has plenty of wait...

Don't be taken in by the exciting and innovative sounding menu. Ultimately the food was mediocre at best and the presentation lacking. I generally give establishments the benefit of the doubt but on a not bust weeknight when a member of our party asked the server for a beer recommendation other than the local Captain Lawrence, she was told "the...

Kind of stumbled onto this place when in town and was pleasantly surprised. It was a Sunday morning and they had a decent brunch menu. While it is essentially a pub, I believe, the food was interesting and tasted great. They also had outside seating and the good weather just added to the experience. Of note was our waitress Kim....
