Thanks to the NE Ohio WP Parents Club for these recommendations.

At West Point
 Hotel Thayer ..An excellent multi-star dining experience.  The best dining within many miles of West Point.  Great service with food to match.  Somewhat pricey, but still a value, and one of the best views of the Hudson River while you eat.  If you have the time, the Sunday brunch is highly recommended, with choices from plates of lox, to omelet's prepared especially for your tastes.  There are no reservations for the Sunday brunch, but cadets in uniform are half price.  Get there early (9:30 am), or else you'll wait a while.  Visit the Hotel Thayer website    for more information.    Highly Recommended

Grant Hall   On Thayer Rd. and part of the cadet barracks.  West Point's 'fast' food restaurant for our cadets, specializing in sub sandwiches and hoagies.  Very good food, reasonably priced, and a dining area that may mesmerize you with portraits of past Army leaders.   Recommended

Eisenhower Hall  The cadet restaurant cafeteria, with burgers, fries, salads, sandwiches, soft drinks.  Very large dining area with an open view of the Hudson River.

West Point Club    The officer's club of West Point, on Cullum Rd. across from Doubleday (Johnson) field.  Very good food, and excellent service.  A great place to eat or drink while your cadet may be attending to other duties.  Visit the club  website for more information.  Lunches Mon.-Fri., dinners Thurs. and Fri., Sunday brunch.   Recommended

Andy's Restaurant  281 Main St., (845) 446-8736  Two booths for two, and a counter seating about 15 does not make this the 'Ritz', or even a party center.  But, the food is GOOD, and Andy's humor may leave you in stitches!  It's near the end of town, and the cadets who eat there swear the walk is worth it!
