I want to love this place

The place is just so inconsistent. Like the other reviewer, I sooooooo want to love the place. So quirky and fun. I love the little bar. Live music is awesome. It's just that sometimes the food is very good, and sometimes they just have a very off night. Some people complain about the... read more

Our high school class had our 20th class reunion at the dream away lodge last night. Our party of about 45 was outside, under a tent. Not only was there not enough tables and chairs for everyone, but the event was WAY overpriced for the food they served. Quite honestly, I would have been embarrassed to serve the picnic style...

Had dinner and saw folksinger Dan Bern afterward. Good food. Good music. Both were worth the trip from Long Island. Very intimate, but enjoyable venue.

I really wanted to like this place...funky, out of the way, a destination place worth the trip. Despite the good music, I found it to be totally mismanaged, unprofessional, and a joke. The drinks were weak and overpriced, the food passable at best, the staff totally untrained, and an "extra" tip was added to my credit card, after we tipped... More

This Dreamaway Lodge is the Historic Home of Mama Fresca and her family, a famous vaudevillian act who got away to the Berkshire for some privacy and an escape with her famous friends where privacy was not an issue. These people were an integral part of the community and their generosity and acceptance of the Locals was legendary. They were... More

I have been going to the Dream Away for Dinner for over 20 years. Sadly, last night was our last time. Our food was delicious. The waitress and the owner were the problem, all because we asked for separate checks. In an angry and disrespectful tone, she said we should have asked at the beginning. She said it's in the...

Looking for a place after a Tanglewood afternoon and a friend recommended Dream Away. Did not have reservations, but they were able to find a table for us. Looking at the decorations, Alice's Restaurant could come to mind. As we were nibbling at Tanglewood, we passed on appetizers and just ordered the main meal. The Chicken Piccata was more of... More

We made reservations way ahead, very much looking forward to a restaurant that had been highly recommended by friends. We called in the afternoon, asking if we might come at 6:30 instead of 7: no. Okay, but we got totally lost on the back roads trying to get there and couldn't get a phone signal, so we weren't able to... More
