A "safe" place for dinner

I visit Great Barrington 1-2x a year to visit family there. We usually eat at least once at Castle Street Café. The food is usually good with GREAT desserts. They make really nice BIG hamburgers but I don't like the skinny string fries they come with. Twice I've ordered burgers cooked medium... read more

A family-style restaurant with a very imposing menu. Helpful staff professionally serves very good food and drinks from a well stocked bar at reasonable prices. Jazz is played in the bar area--no reservations.

We were going to an event at the Mahawie so we thought this we be a great place for dinner and it was. The Chef had me make the reservation for 2 hours 15 minutes prior to the show. Probably could have had it 2 hours prior but I would rather be early then late. The dining room was very... More

Our waitress had no personality. She didn't even introduce herself. All the portion sizes were way too small. Our table for 4 was too small to fit us and our food. My hen had no flavor. My wife's fish had no flavor. And my two daughters each got the $30 surf and turf which was the size of an appetizer.... More

Very nice place, great variety on the menu. Convenient to the Mahaiwe and the movies and all of downtown GB. Very nice bar. A "must dine" in Great Barrington!

If you are going to an event at the Mahawie, movies or just walking around town the Castle Street Café is an excellent choice. It has a widely varied menu with choices that will please almost everybody. The food, including soups, salads, fish and pastas, is excellent and reasonably priced. The service is very good with a concern to get... More

My wife and I stopped in for the three course price fix dinner in April. Great selection of first course, second course and deserts, coffee or tea included. I had the Pasta Primavera, my wife, well I forget, too in love with the bread and pasta to pay attention. Great pasta done with the freshest veggies, delicious, but I forgot... More

It was a quaint local restaurant with 2 different seating areas, though the place is not large. I ate in the bar area and it had a very nice atmosphere. Very friendly staff and a varied menu. I enjoyed the beet salad and the burger, locally raised. Both were delicious. Overall a very nice evening, and felt very comfortable as... More

We recently celebrated our son in law's 40th Birthday at Castle Street Café. We were treated wonderfully and the service was friendly and superb. The food was average at best. I would try other places before I went there for dinner again. The Celestial Bar seems like a nice place to spend some time.

I have been here a few times and every time the food is excellent. The chef is superb. There are two areas to eat, one by the bar and the other a seperate dining room. Both areas are fine, depending on what you are looking for. The bar area is a bit dark and noiser. The dining room is light... More
