Comfort food in a cool location

Been coming to this place for umpteen years -- location, location, location, for one (it's a great location) and sometimes you just want comfort food in no frills zone with likeminded folks.

We've made this a regular stop while in the Berkshires. Fresh, fresh salads and fish, delicious steak, bountiful portions and a convivial atmosphere. Excellent value and healthful, too.

20 Railroad has been around longer than most of the eateries in downtown Great Barrington, and has stood the test of time. They have been serving great sandwiches and salads for at least 30 years. I really like their Kobe Beef burgers, and you can specify all the details of how you want it. There is also a nice selection... More

Stopped in recently for lunch with a group because we thought we would try a new restaurant. it wound up being a poor choice. Our food was nothing special and one of our orders was never placed. Needless to say the service was not the best we've seen. We all agreed we should have chosen some place else.

Ate dinner at 20 Railroad. There were 3 of us and we all ordered the burgers. Each at different temperatures with different side requests. All 3 came out perfectly cooked. The French fries were thick and yummy. The salad was a little disappointing. A very busy place and sometimes there is a wait. Worth waiting for!

We waited a long time to be served; the food was good and portions were generous. They need a larger wait staff.

20 RR is place where one can actually find a good balanced menu unlike some of the overpriced trendy places in town where one needs an interpreter to decipher the offerings. Some of the must tries are the burgers, arguably the best in town, the spring rolls (handmade by a vietnamese woman) and the Salmon Harvest salad. Oh, and the... More

Came here after a day of hiking and kayaking with the kids while in the area during the 4th of July weekend. Got some wings and shrimp spring rolls (special) for apps. Both were very good. Our dinners included bison burgers (menu), texas burger (special), fish tacos (special) and a kids meal. We had a very nice time here. We... More

Not a bad joint to stop in if in Great Barrington; however, our most recent experience here was very poor. We have dined here several times before, and while I have never been blown away by the food, it's a great place to stop with the kids for a fast, cheap bite to eat. The food that they brought out...
