The Bar Room and Restaurant at the North Branch Inn serves a concise menu that is consistently changing. We get our product mostly from people we know personally. Our small open kitchen is in our 150+ year old bowling alley and our deliveries from the farms come through the front door. The Bar itself stocks a solid list of beer, wine, cider on tap, a signature cocktail list, and predominantly local products.
One of my favorite spots in the Catskills!
The North Branch Inn was fantastic. From the delicious cocktail with the singed rosemary that added a delicious note, to the staff accommodating a patron with celiac disease (gluten free), the entire meal was delicious. It was a great date night with my husband. The staff was warm and welcoming, and getting to sit in the bowling alley with a view of the kitchen was fun. The smoked ricotta appetizer was amazing, and the trout was perfectly deboned and cooked perfectly. the steak was a tiny bit salty, but that would be the only negative. Planning to come back bringing friends!
Everything was superb, only reason food got a 9 is because the piece of hanger steak was fatty and chewy. Otherwise, it was an excellent dining experience.
loved the hotel, great people and vibe. food was delicious.
Overall the experience was excellent. The food was perfectly seasoned with bold flavors—one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. The squash appetizer was a real standout as well. Drinks were on point and the staff as always was super friendly. The desert course didn’t rise up to the level of the rest of the courses. Otherwise top notch.
Everything was perfect, the food was amazing and if I'm ever in the area again I would love to go back.
Our dinner was excellent! We had the squash and Rangoon apps. The squash was good though I didn’t expect it as a slice. I found the Rangoon a bit bland, though very crispy. Both salads were really good. The highlight for me was the steak: perfectly prepared and one of, if not the best, I’ve ever had. I would order it again in a heartbeat! My husband had the risotto. He liked it a lot, but I think pasta dishes are the one weak spot at the North Branch. Desserts were both amazing! I would love to have these again as well. The service was friendly and the right amount of attention. I hope you’ll decorate a bit for the holidays, so it feels a little festive - but that’s a quibble. We’ve gone out for dinner twice during the pandemic. Both times to the North Branch. We’ll be back! Thanks so much!
Just absolutely loved it!
Great meal and service. Excellent value and overall super enjoyable experience
We had a wonderful meal, inventive, interesting and delicious food. Great service and enjoyed our anniversary celebration tremendously. I recommend The North Branch Inn highly.
Incredible food and service! Cocktails are some of the best we’ve had.
Yasmine and staff went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcome! Also dinner was so delicious. Very talented kitchen. We think the precautions taken due to Covid was very thorough and yet we felt very relaxed with it all. Thanks for a great anniversary weekend
Love smashed peas with goat cheese!
Absolutely AMAZING. I am still not over my Churro S’mores Dessert!
Great food, service and value!
Enjoyed the delicious meal that had creative selections made with fresh local ingredients. The service was attentive and friendly. Dining modifications made for social distancing provided a safe and enjoyable dining experience.
Everything was absolutely superb and we will most definitely be coming back and highly recommend to our friends!
Great service, amazing food. Pre-fix menu was amazingly thought out and perfect amount of food. Cocktails were on point! Beautiful night with my family.
We love this place! Not sure how we feel about always having a prix fix menu... but my guess is it’s hard to count on certain providers these days. Either way we will be back!
Wonderful dinner! We've been there before and will be back again. Had a minor issue that was no fault of anyone and it couldn't have been handled any better.
Nice experience, could have more menu options.
Tasting menu, we didn’t go for the drink pairing option as well. Starters were simple but effective, we both found the salad a little too vinegary which hid the fresh flavours buried underneath, but our mains (steak frites and river trout) were both outstanding, and rounded off for the win.
Great meal in pleasant environment. Will definitely go back.
Wonderful evening. Delicious food, great cocktails and friendly service. Thank you North Branch Inn!
Matt was amazing!
It is a beautiful place. However it is so expensive for a room. The room smelled musty, and I think putting a coffee maker will be a nice detail since the room is crazy expensive and there is nothing included with....
They've done a wonderful job at meeting the covid requirements while still making the evening enjoyable.
Staff was warm, welcoming and informative. A very nice experience. Thank you!
Strolled the lush gardens and relaxed by the stream before chef and manager greeted us. We appreciated the comfortable dining room with a view of the bowling alley and kitchen. Enjoyed the professional server who explained the many options on the prix fix menu while the kitchen bustled with quiet intensity as our dishes where prepared. The food tasted fresh from the garden with herbs and gentle spices along with flourishes of summer nostalgia from the obviously talented chef who explained that he hopes to reflect the season outside on his plates both in produce and color! Can’t offer any suggestions for improvement especially for true gnocchi. Puffs of flavorful goodness. Look forward to coming again.
