As a photographer, fitness model, and certified bodybuilding + sports nutrition coach, I have been on a quest to discover the most authentic and delicious restaurants throughout the Hudson Valley and Catskills that feature the best protein-packed burgers. My latest stop led me to the unassuming yet delightful Barnwood Restaurant in Catskill, NY. From the outside, it appeared to be a casual spot where locals gather, and my experience proved it was precisely that - a hidden gem serving rustic, homemade, and scrumptious food.

My hubby and I began our culinary adventure with some refreshing drinks: a local dark lager beer for him, and a Sweet as Peach cocktail for myself. This delightful concoction featured coconut rum, peach schnapps, triple sec, pineapple juice, and a cherry and orange garnish - the perfect way to start our meal.
We couldn't resist trying their Roadhouse Wings, pecan smoked in a mouthwatering BBQ sauce. For our main course, we indulged in delicious burgers loaded with smokey bacon and cheese, accompanied by crispy fries and a flavorful macaroni salad. As a photographer, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take some cool shots of this mouthwatering food, capturing its juicy goodness (see the photo gallery below).

Their menu boasts an array of tantalizing options, such as their famous fried chicken, prime rib, meatloaf, hand-battered fish, and pasta favorites.
