Northern Dutchess Restaurants

 Max's Memphis Barbecue

Because the Culinary Institute is located in Dutchess County we are blessed with many wonderful chefs.  Getting great cuisine could just be a few minutes from home.

Here are some of the restaurants you can find in Northern Dutchess. 




Max's Memphis Barbecue

This place is alway packed on the weekends so reservations are advised.  Here you can get terrific barbeque  and chillies.  A favorite of mine among this food of the new South is the gulf  barbeque shrimp with pulled pork chili. 


 Santa FeSanta Fe

Located in the village of Tivoli in the town of Red Hook, this restaurant offers nouveau Mexican Cuisine .  A favorite of the week-enders.



 Beekman Arms

                                                                                  Beekman Arms                                                                            

The Beekman Arms is the oldest continuously operated Inn in America. Located in the heart of Rhinebeck and home to the Traphagen Restaurant,the Beekman is a great place for both lunch and dinner and frequently used for business meetings.     









This building was once a church but since the nineties it has been home to several restaurants, the present being Terrapin.  The restaurant is divided into two parts a section with the bar a bistro, for more casual dining and a more formal restaurant for fine dining. It offers both lunch and dinner. Reservations are advisable for the weekend.



 Madlin Table

                                             Madalin's Table                                                                                                     








 Madalin's Tableis located on one of the four corners in the heart of Tivoli.  And is located in the newly restored building now the home  of the Hotel Madalin.                                                                                                                              

 GigiGigi Trattoria

Gigi Trattoriais also located in the heart of Rhinebeck and offers cuisine with a Mediterranean flair. Local organic products are used to prepare delicious yet healthy food. A favorite spot for the health conscious.

There is also Gigi's Farm market located at the Greig's Farmin Red Hook.  Here you will find nutritious low calorie lunches, meals to go, and great soup.  This is also where bread and some desserts are prepared for the Rhinebeck location.

Rhinebeck is such a nice town.  I have eaten at the Beekman Arms and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Thanks for the other restaurants.  I will be sure to try one of them the next time I am in Rhinebeck.

Jennifer, not only do you have a variety of restaurants but also a variety of architectural styles.   Our resturants seem kind of boring in looks compared to yours.

Jennifer, all great places to grab a bite and enjoy your company.  Northern Dutchess gets overlooked sometimes.

Marchel - Yes each restaurant looks different and the food is also different but  all good.

Jeffrey- I have had fun taking friends and clients to these terrific places.
