Food and drink are available to buy (it's order and take, not full service), there's a water dispenser of which anyone can make use gratis. AND, wonder of wonder, there are NICE public restrooms down below. You could bring your own picnic here if you wanted. You could bring cards and chill on a ship on the Hudson.. the possibilities are limitless, really.
The kitchen is open from noon to midnight. It's not the most imaginative menu, but you can get burgers, wraps or sandwiches with fries for $10-$13. At lunch time, beers are $5, at dinner $6, or you can always get a $22 pitcher. They also have wine.
Sometimes they have a frozen drink bar open, but this is to be steered clear of. Someone will mix you a cheap, sugary strawberry daquiri, pina colada, or margarita flavored syrup with rum and ice and charge you 10 bucks for it.
I had the strawberry daquiri. It was cold, so there's that to say for it.

|French Lentils with preserved lemon - $4|
I have no idea why she gave this up! It was great! Nothing like the horrible lentil soup my parents made us kids eat the day before Thanksgiving each year as their system of pre-penance for the sins of gluttony we'd be enacting the following day.
While we were all drinking beers and whatnot on the ship, this group of yogaists had a session, presumably to show us how awesome they are:
|haha jk, it's pretty awesome|
