About Us
 

The River Grill is nestled on Newburgh's Historic Waterfront, with picturesque views of the Hudson Valley and the magnificent Hudson River banks just off its elegant main dining room.

 

After over a decade of success as an exceptional fine-dining establishment located on Newburgh’s historic waterfront, The River Grill’s original chef-owner Mark Mallia continues to serve up a unique experience a step above his competitors.  The diverse menu features American eclectic cuisine for every pallet; including steaks, chops, seafood, pastas and fresh raw bar selections with daily specials and delectable desserts.  The wine list promotes a generous assortment of fine wines, or sip a specialty cocktail at the restaurants cozy full bar.

Owner and proprietor since 2000, Mallia began his lifelong career in the restaurant industry at age 14, working alongside his father at Joseph’s in Highland Falls, just minutes from the gates of West Point Academy.   His years of experience gained him not only unique culinary talent and technique but business-know how in a family and community oriented environment.  

When the opportunity presented itself in 2000, Mallia purchased the enterprise and opened The River Grill.  As a Newburgh resident and avid family man, Mallia is a local personality well known not only for his grilled-to-perfection steaks and melt-in-your-mouth pasta dishes but also for his generosity and involvement in community events and fundraising efforts.  The River Grill has participated in Taste of the Hudson Valley for 3 years running, supports the Newburgh Rotary Club and has held special events and fundraisers for a variety of local businesses, school groups, colleges, and charities.
