Kingston Party Bus

Next time you are traveling in Kingston, New York, whether with NYC Party Bus or on your own, you might want to consider going to a few of these great bars and restaurants in the 12401 and 12402 zip codes.

Le Canard-Enchaine is one of our favorite French restaurants of all time, and it's so conveniently located right here in Kingston. They have a two course lunch prix-fixe that we simply cannot resist, and would you like to know what one of the best features of this restaurant is? That would be the fact that they serve this fine French food in very American portions! So you get a lot more bang for your buck here than you ordinarily would at any French restaurant in the state. We love their beef bordelaise and the casoulet with duck confit. The wine list is quite impressive here too, and the servers are very knowledgeable about what wine goes with which dish. Wonderful for dates or for family get-togethers.

Armadillo Bar & Grill is such an awesome place to hang out and have drinks, but it also happens to be a really wonderful Mexican restaurant. We've been coming here for so many years that we can't imagine Kingston without it! The queso fondue is really amazing, served with their famous "chippies" so you can scoop up all that gooey goodness with the fresh red and green peppers in it! Mmm mmm good! The outdoor patio is always a pleasure to dine on during the warmer months of the year, and the indoor dining area is a pleasure the rest of the time. We'd recommend starting off with any of their brews or ales, and a nice appetizer of chips with pico de gallo and green salsa. Too good! Everything on the menu is incredible. One of our highest recommendations.

Kyoto Sushi... this restaurant has been rumored to have the freshest sushi in the area, and we've tried just about every restaurant around, so we'd say that claim is pretty dead-on. One of our favorite special rolls is the crunchy shrimp mango, which is really packed with an incredible amount of flavor and it impressed everyone at our table who shared a bite. The spicy tuna tempura roll is also noteworthy. The age tofu is also fantastic, a bit soft for our tastes, but incredibly flavorful. For an appetizer we would very highly recommend the hamachikama. The service at this restaurant is really a cut above the rest, and we love the casual yet elegant atmosphere that makes it perfect for just about any occasion.

Picnic Pizza is well known in the Kingston area, and for good reason! Everybody loves the huge amount of different pizzas that they have here, and you really can't beat the price for their combo that gets you a couple of slices along with a drink. We won't quote the price here in case it changes by the time you read this, but in any case it's one of the cheapest combos you're going to find in the state! It's true that the exterior doesn't hold any promise for what may lay inside, but trust us when we say that you should not judge this book by its cover! They've got a wood burning oven here which just may explain some of that incredible flavor! You do not want to miss this one when you're in the area!

Kings Valley Diner is a great little spot to go for all your favorite old fashioned delights along with some of the old fashioned service that goes along with it. We really love their egg sandwiches and french dip sandwiches, and you cannot beat their wonderful cupcakes for dessert! If you're a corned beef hash lover like we are, you definitely will want to stop in for breakfast and enjoy some of that. They've got some very nice Greek specialties too, including souvlaki and gyros. Mmm, so delish! Try the chicken caesar wrap and the buffalo chicken wrap too. We think you'll be very pleased with everything that they have to offer here, including the super clean atmosphere and wonderful service.

Golden Ginza Japanese Restaurant is a wonderful place to go for everything that is good about Japan. Their tempura is one of the things that really shines here, very flavorful and crispy. Truly, the hibachi is the star of the show here, taking a backseat to that tempura, udon, and sushi. It's so cool to come in with a group of co-workers, friends, or family and sit at one of those hibachi tables, just watching the chef go to work to both entertain you and cook for you. It's really fun and unique. If your'e opting for sushi, we'd very highly recommend the titanic toll! For a drink, don't miss the volcano, served in a bowl with a flame. Serves two!

Elephant is just one of the most gorgeous restaurants that you will visit in the Kingston area. If you are looking for delicious tapas, you will not find any that's better than this. The pork belly and pineapple tacos are one of our favorite dishes, and the flavor will really knock you off your feet. So good! They've also got an escargot toast that is unbelievable, blended with the mouth watering flavors of mushroom and bacon plus sherry! Wow. They've got a very nice selection of wines and beers, with a heavier emphasis on the wine list but the beers are well-chosen. The staff is very friendly and they really go out of their way to make sure you enjoy yourself, but the service can be a little bit slow here. Still, very highly recommended!

Skytop Steakhouse and Brewing Company is one of the more unique places you can go to in Kingston. We have seen comedy shows here in the past and it's always a great time! They have a gorgeous terrace so you can sit and enjoy the warm breeze in the summer months. They've got a decent selection of beers, but nothing like you'd expect at a place that lists "Brewing Company" in the title--note that they are no longer a brewpub, so it's just a list of local beers and domestic beers. Good stuff, but not the microbrew specialties that you may be jonesing for. However, the steaks are really out of this world along with everything else on the menu. Very good food, and pretty good beer! We still love this place.

Dallas Hot Weiners is of course known for their delicious hots, and there is no better place to stop in with the family for a quick meal that won't break the bank! We also love their cheese dogs and the cheese fries with Dallas sauce. It's almost too good to believe! They've got the shoestring potatoes here as opposed to those thick overly seasoned fries that most hots places seem to serve, and we love that old fashioned style fry. There are a few of these Dallas Hot Weiners restaurants in the area, but we've heard that this is the original, the one that has stood the test of time for more than 75 years. Though it's been here forever, you'd never know it--it's incredibly clean and well maintained! We love it.

Ship to Shore Steak & Seafood Restaurant is one of the best after-work spots in Kingston, for both a couple stiff drinks and a really hearty meal. They've got delicious steaks, with incredible garlic mashed potatoes and very good vegetables.The calamari fritti is just amazing, and the ahi tuna tower is one of those things that you see in your dreams afterwards! Really, it was that good! We love the sesame seeds that cover the tuna, and the avocado is so fresh and flavorful, providing a nice creamy complement to the tuna itself. We love the ambiance here, which begins with that authentic storefront from the 1800s and ends with a very carefully decorated and maintained interior. We can't say enough about how much we love this place. Very highly recommended!
