In a classic pre-Revolutionary saloon, this unassuming, family-owned and -operated restaurant and bar is hands-down one of the most charming spots along the Hudson. It has a relaxed but great-looking bar with a couple of separate, vintage dining rooms and a small terrace with tables and stunning views high above a rushing waterfall and the mighty Hudson River. The Raccoon usually walks away with top honors in the poll that names the Hudson Valley's best burgers (and they are truly fantastic: large and juicy, served with homemade ketchup and extras like guacamole, mushrooms, and bacon). The menu also offers other, more sophisticated delights. Try the black truffle chicken-liver pâté, seared filet of salmon with mandarin orange sauce, or rib-eye steak au poivre with cracked peppercorn and cognac. Desserts are all homemade, and ice creams are imaginative and delicious: Flavors include basil, lavender, and honey. The homemade ginger ale is out of this world.
