Rehearsal dinner options in the New Paltz/Poughkeepsie area?

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help me out. I'm getting married in West Park, NY on May 29th and am looking for a good rehearsal dinner spot for Friday night, May 28th serving 44 people.
I'm not from the area, so any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I'd really like to have something not too formal, preferably along the waterfront. The venue is in West Park, the hotel is in Poughkeepsie, so somewhere in that general area - including New Paltz - would be great.
I wanted to do it at Mariner's on the Hudson, but I was told the food is not that great by a few people. A few others said that as long as I stick with the steak or lobster special, it should be fine and it's a pretty location.
Any thoughts, suggestions? I also checked out the Ship Lantern Inn, but I found it to be a little too stuffy of an ambience and not the vibe my fiance and I are going for.
Thanks in advance.

Ship Lantern Inn
1725 Route 9W, Milton, NY 12547
