Beardslee Castle

 A Little Royal Treatment........

Last year I became acquainted with a gifted photographer who became an inspiration to me in so many ways.  Not only is she a talented photographer but she is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to picturesque places in our area.   One of the places she introduced me to was Beardslee Castle in Little Falls, NY. 
 Built by Augustus Beardslee in 1860, Beardslee is a replica of an Irish castle.  The building has suffered two major fires, the first in 1919 nearly destroyed the building and much of the stonework needed to be reworked. The oak paneled floors and ceilings were completely redone as nothing was left but the stone shell. A fire in 1989 gutted the kitchen areas and the building was left vacant for 3 years. After a two year restoration the restaurant reopened in 1994 under the present ownership. (Taken from their website: 

The Dungeon
When dining at Beardslee  you can either eat in the main floor dining room or downstairs in the Dungeon where delicious pub fare is served.  Don't let that description fool you, when we first visited I ordered a chicken dish in the dungeon and it was anything but what one might consider pub food.

Trust me - it was amazing!  The Dungeon menu also consists of a Muffaletta Sandwich, a Veggie Wrap, a Burger, Pasta, Chicken Tenders, Salads, Fried Calamari and Fried Tofu Cubes and much more.   If you choose to eat in a more elegant setting in the simply breathtaking dining room, your dinner fare will be much more elegant with prices ranging from $18.00 an entrée to $26.00.    You won't be disappointed.  You will truly feel you have stepped back in time in this magical setting. 
Beardslee Castle is located at 123 Old State Road (right off Rt. 5) in Little Falls, NY.  It's an easy and scenic ride.  Beardslee also hosts Murder Mystery Dinners.  Visit their Facebook page or website: 
Winter Hours: (January-April) serving dinner Friday and Saturday only from 5pm-9pm

Summer Hours: (May-November) serving dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5pm-9pm, Sunday from 4pm-8pm
