Your Top 10 eating/drinking places in the area

My wife and I were trying to make this list last night as a top 5 but them decided there was room for a few more. We limited ourselves 1.) to reasonable price (I suppose this is relative but we said under 15-20 fora dinner entree, knowing that that was the top end for us and something we'd try to avoid too often.) & 2.) 30 mile radius (this counted out one of our favorite places so we added back on the list.)

In doing this we thought, there's got to be more. So I ask you, what are your top 10 spots to drink, eat, and hang out while not getting robbed by the establishment and not traveling really far?

It would help if you added a sentence as to why the place is on your list.

Thanks

Our list is this---in no particular order

1. Toro- Fishkill strip mall plaza on 52- good sushi, great Korean searing rice bowls-$12 each + beer
2. The Indian Place in the same strip mall- great tasting food, nice people-$15-$20 each
3. The Beacon Diner- always good for a large salad and some fries or soup or sand. Also a fun place to drink Budweisers ($2.75 I think)- $6-$12 each
4. Homespun Foods- good lunch place to take guests- $10 each
5. Steak & Stein- Newburgh- The Banta Burger Basket is the best burger around, almost as good as Corner Bistro and comes with fries and a basic but refreshing salad bar for $9 + a very large beer for $5
6. Big W's ( this is far away and I forget where it is but it is the best smoked chix, brisket, pork etc.. I've had north of the South, so it stays on the list.) It's real BBQ, which is rare up here, don't know why that is, It's not like it's difficult to do.- $12-$15 each
7. The Depot-Cold Spring. BEER, too bad you have to drive back so imbibing is not an option unless you find a teetotaler to drive. I know some will say there plenty of good places to have beers/drinks right here in Beacon, well...I disagree. the beer there is good and cold, the people are nice and funny.
8. Le Bouchon- also Cold Spring- Mussels. $13 + Beer. not the friendliest bunch but the fries are good too. other stuff on the menu is also good but I'm thrifty.
9. ZuZu's. Main street Beacon. Good coffee and tea. especially the after 3pm 1/2 price cup.
10. haven't found it or have forgotten

tell me what's good

By Beacon Diner do you mean Yankee Clipper? or Diner 84?

Isn't Big W fab? except it is too far.

Gully's in Newburgh. Drink on a boat or rather a barge, good bands, lovely to be on the water.
Yankee Clipper yes. have to try I84 omelets, thanks

http://www.bigwsbbq.com/ rules the North.

Poppy's burgers are good but so small and takes so long. i suspect they fire up the grill when they get an order, maybe it's better on weekends

I'd like to try the chinese place, I'll give that stuff one more shot.

and damn, Tavern at Highland Country Club? thanks Pal.
forgot all about Quinns for breakfast. coffee keeps on comin and a side of bacon is a lot of bacon. too bad it's gone soon
This is a terrific thread!
Lots of great recs for someone who just moved here; we've been wondering where the good Chinese is! (FUXING, or "f*ck-you crossing" as my husband calls it, looks, well, scary.)

We have tried:
Toro and thought is was TERRIFIC.
Roma Nova had really decent Mexican. (would like to know about the Mexican place towards the East End?)
Yankee Clipper is good-great patty melt, good diner tuna.
Brothers Trattoria makes a good pie; fettucini alfredo was YUMMMMM; I love the Shrimp & Crabmeat pasta appetizer.
Homespun Foods - dynamite.
Beacon Falls Cafe - went to brunch and it was really good. Had the Salmon BLT - delish.

Having lived in Fishkill (3 years), Cold Spring ( 2 1/2 years), Hopewell Jct. (1 Year), and now Beacon (9 months)...I have ate at, drank in, and enjoyed the greater Beacon area establishments for quite sometime. I'm by no means a foodie, I prefer a litte pub grub over a fancy dinner, but here are a few of my favorites.

- Lily Logans, 9D Wappingers, great burgers and good Beamish! The Bar crowd is a little odd, but where isn't it.
- The Depot, Cold Spring, the outside bar, steamers, and a couple cold ones after a day in the sun...winner.
- Goodfellas, Rt. 52 Hopewell JCt, stay away from the food, but drop in for the beer selection, outside deck, and horseshoes.
- Maya Cafe, Rt 9 Fishkill, always lively and food is as authentic as I like it...comes out fast too!
- Max's, Main St., not neccessarily on Friday and Saturday nights, but great place to catch a game and a Guiness (they just need to learn how to pour).
- The Yankee Clipper, Main St., love the local diner.
- Isamu, Main St., I'm not a food critic, but I love it. Plus, its only two blocks from my house and affordable.
Where is Quinns going?

-Isamu (we LOVE their food and have yet to have something we did not enjoy. LOVE their sushi!)
-Yankee Clipper Diner (breakfast is perfect!)
-Suppa's Deli (makes the best lunch sandwiches and cold cuts are always fresh, coffee is good and so is their bagel with bacon, egg, cheese)
-Hudson Buffet-Fishkill, across from Walmart(something for everyone, love their sushi and crab)
-Dona Julia's (best authentic Dominican food we've had in the Hudson Valley)
-Brothers Tratoria (best grandma square's since Brooklyn)
-Piggy Bank (tasty, cheap, nice portions and nice atmosphere)
-Max's on Main (just tried their food yesterday and I am loving their Beacon Roll's and Pierogies! YUMMY!!)

It's been for sale for years. Thought that they had a buyer.

We've been eyeing River Terrace since moving here a year ago. Somehow we always forget about them until, once again we are driving by.

How are their prices? Kid friendly? I am a salad kind of girl so I wonder how their selection of produce is, etc.

Please share!

Besides my favorite standbys in Beacon: The Piggy Bank, Brother's Trattoria, Yankee Clipper Diner.
Double O Grill - (Rte 9 Wappingers before Home Depot )great menu selection, good prices, snazzy decor, and has outdoor dining- serves food after 11pm
Sushi Ya-(Stop n Shop plaza fishkill, rte 9) excellent sushi at good prices, recently moved into a new, bigger location
Cafe Maya- fun to sit at bat for margaritas and chips. In the dining room roaming guitar player serenading your tables is quite talented. Good food reasonable prices. Also there is another Cafe Maya on 9D in Wappingers with outdoor dining.
River Terace (by Beacon train station) Wonderful outdoor spot. The inside is a little tired, but the food and service has always been good. Owners are very friendly. Love their warm bread and entree salads with grilled shrimp or chicken- Loaded with veggies.
Il Barolito -(main st fishkill village) a nice treat out- its expensive, but the cozy atmosphere, food and service is worth it.
been thinking the same thing, Egyptian cuisine? we always forget about it. I remember looking at the menu a year or so ago and was floored by the prices so we drank beer outside and left.
