OK for what it is

On the Appalachian Trail, atop Greylock Mountain, this restaurant epitomizes the term 'rustic.' Do not come here expecting fine dining. Do come here expecting good food and interesting dinner companions.

Myself and my friends were all nicely surprised by the delicious and unusual sandwiches they have at the Bascom Lodge. Very nice space, comfortable and laid back, affordable.

Had dinner here with friends. Atmosphere was good, though the acoustics are pretty terrible and the noise was close to deafening, since the guests were so packed in. The menu suggests a gourmet experience, as do the prices, which were in the $35 range, without drinks, and significantly more with mandatory service and taxes. While the service was pleasant in...

The dining room at Bascom Lodge includes about 10 tables that each seat 6 or 8 people. If a group fills up a table, it will get that table to itself; otherwise, multiple parties will be seated at the same table--going along with the communal lodge ethos. The problem is that all of the surfaces are wood and stone--the tables,... More

For dinner with a view this restaurant ranks at the top of the list and on top of a hill. The meals are delicious and served with a smile! Each week there is an interesting talk, slide show, or on very special occasions, the Berkshire Highlanders!

The concept is great - high end fare in a relaxed lodge setting on top of a beautiful mountain. 7pm seating, prix fixe - $38. The execution was awful. The entree choice was rib eye or paella with lobster tail, mussels etc. We ordered one of each. The raw ingredients - cut of steak, full lobster tail, etc. seemed terrific.... More

Stopped for lunch after hiking up. It was one of the busiest days of the year, but we were still able to get in and had an outstanding grilled cheese, with a ginger cookie which was to die for. Well worth the stop, and a treat to get such a good meal on a mountaintop.

We love visiting Mt. Greylock where there is a wonderful view of Western Massachusetts, New York, Vermont and Connecticut. Bascom Lodge is a rustic lodge on top of this 3,500' mountain and we make it a point to go there for dinner a few times every summer season. I have read the other reviews that complain about the service there,... More
