Great spot for pub grub

Great pub menu. We had burgers and beers and enjoyed the busy atmosphere. The burgers were cooked perfect, and the portions very generous. We'll certainly be back next time we're in town.

I've been eating here on ski trips for many years. I've come with children, with friends and alone. There is a nice welcome, good advice and good food.

Always rushing on a Friday night as we ended up here for a quick bite. I had the tuna tacos without the taco shells and they put it on a bed of lettuce-its was really good. Portions are overly generous and good. Not gourmet and fancy-just solidly and consistently good.

You walked down a little alley to get in and it was on a cute little street in center of the little town of Great Barrington. there was a bar crowd and tables. Very comfortable. Service was slow but they were all professional....Good ambiance. The food was good. Tasty.

My wife and I stumbled upon this place and boy did we luck out. The staff was extremely friendly, service was great and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We don't usually get an appetizer, but when I saw they had a salmon bisque, I HAD to get it. AWESOME !! The fish tacos and lamb burger were just as good.... More

While from out of state, we frequented 20 Railroad for years as regular visitors to the Berkshires. It was, and remains, an old, welcoming bar and restaurant. While I hadn't been here in a few years, we stopped in for lunch recently and were pleasantly surprised to see an updated menu with some interesting options. Burgers are great as were... More

This is another staple of Great Barrington. You will find a vibrant social atmosphere...families, couples, young and old. Nice menu, decent prices. Also on Railroad street so it is next door to super movie theatre, Mahaiwe, Church street live music etc.

my family has been to this restaurant a couple times. the service is great - they do their best to make sure you're comfortable. the decor is tired, but the burgers are dependable and the beer selection is a good complement. they are definitely kid friendly, and i highly recommend the truffle fries upgrade. smuttynose on tap? it's a winner.

Arriving late for lunch, this more-than-a-beer-and-burger joint beckoned. Comfort food entrees including burgers your way as well as regionally inspired dishes gave us plenty of options. Great service with a smile will bring us back.
