       Foster's Coach House Tavern, originally called "The Village Tavern," was built by Walter Decker in 1890.  Wally Foster bought the Tavern after World War II and rebuilt the interior as it still remains today.   Unique horse stalls serve as dining booths and famous racing pictures and bits cover the walls.  The coach (telephone booth below) was originally owned by Levi P. Morton, Vice President of the United States under Benjamin Harrison.  One of Mr. Foster's famous customers was Col. Jacob Ruppert, the beer baron king.

       Foster's was purchased in 1965 by Bob Kirwood.  Voted the "Best Restaurant" by the Hudson Valley Magazine several years running, Mr. Kirwood has made Foster's a household name throughout the valley.  Besides operating Foster's Coach House, Bob also operates the Fairgrounds Restaurant located at the Dutchess County Fair.  The Fairgrounds Restaurant can be viewed on our Events page.

       We are located in historic Rhinebeck, NY, just minutes from the Dutchess County Fairgrounds and the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome.
