In the old train station, built in 1893 by Cornelius Vanderbilt (the train still rumbles by at all hours), this easygoing restaurant is a favorite of both locals and weekend visitors on antiquing treks. It mainly serves comfort food, in either the popular tavern or the warmly decorated main dining room. Try the Guinness potpie, Ma Ralston's meatloaf, homemade chili, or fish and chips. Sophisticates who find those too pedestrian can opt for the filet mignon or seafood paella. There's a nice garden terrace for dining in warm months, and occasional live jazz on Saturday nights, and in summer an ice-cream parlor operates next door. After you've had a couple of drinks, have a seat on the bench outside at 10:13pm and ask locals about "the ghost of the depot" -- a woman murdered by her husband as she tried to escape on the train to Poughkeepsie in 1898.
