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.

I had dinner here with my wife. Food and service were excellent. I had the salmon wrap and definitely would get it again. My wife had a salad that she said was wonderful. Prices were a little high but the food quality made it more than OK. The only reason I didn't rate the place 5* was the lack of... More

As a couple road tripping from the UK, 20 Railroad was a pleasant surprise and ideal for a casual evening dining. Menu was varied, food tasted fantastic and plenty of beers on tap available. Friendly service, couple of screens for sports and lively atmosphere made for a lovely evening

Very friendly atmosphere, very friendly and helpful waitresses, fantastic angus burger (big!), great chicken wings and soup. Reasonable selection of beer, including some craft beers. Would have been even better with some tv screens shut off and a somewhat more dimmed lights

20 Railroad was not our first choice on the evening we dined there, but the place we had in mind was closed for a private event. 20 Railroad looked typical enough - pleasant quasi-brew pub atmosphere and fairly run of the mill menu, burger, fish, pasta, beef, etc. Now, being mostly from California and Texas, perhaps we had no right...
