Rockland County, New York, is well-known not just for its  views of the Hudson River, but for its quality food selection, as well. Only 19 miles from NYC, it’s a short and easy trip which offers many popular eating options for visitors and residents. By Erin Semple.

Piermont, NY

The quaint river town of Piermont brings you a surf and turf restaurant with a spacious deck and a Tiki Bar overlooking the Hudson River and the Tappan Zee Bridge. The view alone is of a reason to visit this restaurant – it’s almost as if the selection of steak and seafood is just a bonus!

CB Kitchen Bar

This gastropub serves up classics with a fresh take. The menu features burgers and specialty tacos, along with chicken, waffles and barbecue. This new, casual joint is the latest from the head chef of Nyack’s Cafe Barcel. With live music on Saturdays, it’s a great place to kick back with friends and grab a beer, or to bring the family for Sunday brunch.

Thai House

12 Park Street
Nyack, NY

Reviews & More Info

Many New York City residents will agree that authentic thai food is difficult to find amongst many restaurants that attempt to pass themselves off as the real deal. The Thai House, however, is highly rated and lives up to its name. With a wide variety of menu options including vegetarian ones, we recommend giving it a chance.

Casa del Sol

This exotic hot spot – great for post-work drinks or celebratory dinners – has been featured on national television and lauded as the place to go for the best margaritas around. Fusing together Latin American, Spanish, Mexican and Caribbean cuisines together while you’re entertained by a variety of music and events.

    Banchetto Feast, Union Street Restaurant, Restaurant X, IL Portico…and, for pizza, let’s not forget Agnello’s in New City…all belong on the top 10 list for Rockland.

    LL Portico- Tappan
    76 house- Tappan
    Grand Central- Congers
    Breakfast: Strawberry Place in Nyack

    Lighthouse is all about the site, not the menu or the serivce
    Casa Del Sol is good to get boozed up on a weekend night, thats about it
    The Thai House is horrible

        LOL, I need protection I am being followed by these Amish People. I think they even crashed my wedding!

    Banchetto Feast is a must for this list. I would never put Lighthouse on the hudson on this list. We waited over an hour with bugs flying all over for bland and burnt food. Get a slice of pizza and go down to hook mnountain if you want a better atmosphere with tastier food. Overpriced, slow service, bland burnt food make this your last resort in Rockland.

    How could you leave the 76 House in Tappan off your list. Surperb menu and service besides the historical interest.
