Dinner with a view!

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 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

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

If I could give Zero stars, I would. Both the service and the food were so dismal that I felt compelled to write my very first review on Yelp, even though I eat out on a regular basis. Perhaps dining in the Soviet Union was similiar to this - tiny, what appeared to be rationed, portions, barely edible food and... More

I, like many, fell victim of believing the hype surrounding Bascom Lodge--described as a farm-to-table gem nested in the mountains at the top of Mt. Greylock in publications like The Boston Globe and Edible Berkshires. Apparently, the restaurant gets it act together when they know culinary critics are dining there. But with a prix fixe three course fixed menu, one... More

My husband, a friend and I came to this lodge for an outing while we were in the area on Saturday morning. It was socked in by fog and unseasonably cold but we didn't mind--we were in good spirits and eager to see this historic lodge. We all like Arts and Crafts design. We thought the main room of the...

If you want small intimate tables, go to dinner in NYC. If you want great food in an oustanding setting, try Bascom Lodge. I have stayed there twice and had dinner there twice. The first time I receivced a telephone call from the staff earlier in day saying the menu selection had changed to pork chops. OK. I didn't know... More

I was sorry to see some not so kind reviews here. This special inn is tucked away on the highest mountain in Massachusetts. Get it? Away from it all. It almost reminds me of a remote island I go to in winter. There are no services next door like one would find in the city or in the towns of... More
