Default Nyack (NY) restaurant

I know that this is a long shot, but...

I was hoping that someone could give me a recommendation
for a restaurant in Nyack, NY. It's for a Saturday lunch for
about half a dozen people. The primary purpose is a reunion
between my Dad and a cousin he hasn't seen for about 70
years (not an exaggeration, BTW), so I'm looking for
someplace that's relatively quiet so that we won't have to
shout to converse. I was thinking of a place that might be
slightly upscale so that there won't be a lot of kids
running around, but certainly not so upscale as to require a
jacket and tie. It would have to be "American" food, nothing
too exotic, as some of the elderly people may not have
adventurous appetites.

A plus would be the availability of a power outlet near the
table so I can plug in my laptop (I'm the family historian,
and I'll be taking notes), but I'm guessing that most of you
haven't noticed whether or not the restaurants you frequent
have convenient outlets. (Once I get some suggestions, I
plan to call the restaurants and ask if that kind of
arrangement is possible.)

Any suggestions?

I've seen some nice things written about the Hudson House,
anybody been there?

From my .eats archive. Some items are 10 years old, so beware!

It's not in Nyack, but not too far away in Piermont are a pair of excellent
places. One is called Xavier's and it a fairly fancy place with moderatly
high prices. Next door is Freelance Cafe, equally good food but not as
fancy and much more reasonably priced. FC does not take reservations, and
neither takes credit cards.

If you like Thai food "King & I" is pretty good. Ichi Riki has reasonable
Japanese food, although it's sister location in Elmsford (other side of
thebetter. You migh consider going over to the other side of the Hudson,
there are many good restaurants in Tarrytown.

I hope this isn't too late but... A restaurant from Boston just opened a
restaurant in W. Nyack.. "legal Seafood" they offer excellent fresh fish,
an upscale "Red Lobster"

Wow...I just saw this post and I hope I'm not too late either. You have some
excellent choices in Cold Spring, Try Plumbush Inn for a gourmet dinner with
a beautiful romatic atmosphere..an old Victorian, very well kept up with
excellent food. Theirs also Riverwiew, a small local place with very good
food and Northgate - think it's the same owner as Riverview - very good fish.
Enjoy the Hudson Valley...Cold Spring is delightful. Cindy
