We just happened upon the Commune Saloon on our way through Woodstock. We were absolutely delighted with the open air dining surrounding a large fire pit. They even supplied skewers and marshmallows for roasting. The food was excellent. But best of all was the peaceful, easy music sung by the guitar player, EC Lorick. What a memorable space.

We've been in Bearsville for a month and kept meaning to stop in for a drink at the Commune Saloon. Tonight we decided on dinner and drinks. We should have stopped at the drinks--the Moscow Mules were great. And there it all ended.

At 7 p.m there was no one dining but us. We thought it was just a slow night. My husband ordered corn chowder that he said for $8 was a rip off. It was not delicious. And he was served the chowder without a spoon. Finally a spoon arrived after the chowder had cooled.

The same thing happened with my hamburger, arriving without fries or mayo or mustard or ketchup or something to moisten the bun. It was a piece of meat with a whisper of cheese and a slice of tomato and leaf of lettuce on the side. We asked for salt. By the time the mayo arrived the burger was cold. I took a bite and the meat tasted off--off like it was bad meat. I took another bite just to be sure, then asked my husband to taste it without telling him why. He also said the meat was bad. On one positive note, while the fries were hot, they were good.

The bill for the evening was $60. The food was awful, and expensive for what we were served . Perhaps now we know why the dining room was empty.

Go for the bar and the outside fire pit. Tread carefully with the food.

been there a number of times. great atmosphere, nice people, but food is inconsistent. they just can't seem to get it right, keep on changing the menu which seems to get worse
instead of better. ex. made great fried chicken last year, this year changed the recipe, the worse watermelon salad and cornbread i ever had. and it is not cheap;

The Commune Saloon could be a really great place. There's a lovely outdoor seating area with firepit, and live music is frequently scheduled. Unfortunately, the staff is either checked out, overwhelmed, or stoned. The food is decent but nothing to write home about. A fun place to grab a pint when the weather is nice.
