“The Dutch Ale House is a restaurant and bar that is family-friendly and perfect for little diners and their folks. They offer the Hudsons Valley’s Best Beer plus sumptuous meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A very conformable and cozy restaurant that fits everyone - either dine in or take-out - whether to celebrate something or if you’re just bored and looking for a place to sit and relax while drinking your beer.”
