Hudson Riverfront Dining In Rockland Countys Hot Spots

Summertime means long, lazy evenings of dining and relaxing outside and where better to do it than near the waterfront.  Rockland County is fortunate to be flanked to the east by the mighty Hudson River.  Last week and weekend, I found myself spending time in two of my favorite riverfront tiki bars in Rockland County.  One very popular dining spot with outdoor bar area is Pier 701 in Piermont, NY,  formerly The Lighthouse prior to Frankenstorm Sandy.  This lovely destination has a full menu including numerous seafood items.  My favorite so far is the gorgeous grilled octopus.  Wow, was it tender.  It’s quite often very busy on Friday and Saturday nights so expect to wait.  But what else do you have to do.  One goes there to be near the water, so sit back , relax, and enjoy.    Another great spot to visit is the tiki bar at the Haverstraw Marina called the Hudson Water Club in Haverstraw, NY. I went there Saturday night and was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful band that was playing at the time.  It was called Curbside Hustle and they are worth going back for.  They have bands every Friday and Saturday nights for the crowd who loves night life.  The food is also good there.  They also have plenty of seafood dishes on the menu and the drinks are very good as well.  Someone ordered Pina Coladas with Midori. They looked like milk shakes with cream on top.  Locals from across the river often frequent this establishment and of course, many of the patrons are member s of the Haverstraw Marina and love sharing boating stories. In Nyack, NY, The River Club is a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike.  Having first remodeled a few years ago due to a kitchen fire, then again because of that dreaded Sandy, they are in full force serving a menu complete with seafood and grill items.  Open air dining is what it’s all about and they certainly have it here. All this is to say, when you are looking for something fun to do outside, stop by one of the riverfront dining areas in Rockland and make sure you stay long enough to watch the evening sky light up with bright crimson reds, golden oranges & yellows and Prussian blue.  The sunsets have been spectacular!  What’s the old saying…..Red at night, Sailor’s delight…
