I had the fisherman's platter that was on special. It was a generous serving of seafood but I felt it was a bit too thick on batter. The fish was only so so. On the plus side, beautiful lake view, generous portions, very reasonably priced for the Berkshires.

Right on route 7 in Lanesboro, this "no frills" restaurant pub has typical bar food and a nice waterfront location. Plenty of parking right out front, a decent sized bar and a great deck overlooking Pontoosuc Lake. The staff are very nice and slightly rough around the edges. A few F-bombs dropped while I was there, but no children in... More

My friend and I have eaten here before, and find the food to be good and reasonably priced. Yesterday we each had Reubens, which are served with potato chips and a couple of pickle slices. The sandwiches were tasty, but very messy. I ended up eating mine with a knife and fork. The view of Lake Pontoosic is lovely if... More

Overlooking Lake Pontoosic, this is a wonderful place to chow down on moderately priced seafood platters. Our server was prompt and friendly, and the friend oyster and clam belly platters were delicious and tasted fresh. The policy of reserving the tables nearest the lake for bar patrons rather than diners seems quite strange, but maybe they're catering to the locals.... More

What a great experience! Beautiful view of the lake, wonderful people serving us, and excellent food. The kids loved it, too. Would definitely go again next time we are in the area! Great crab cakes!!

This place has a great view of the lake and the Berkshires. The food was reasonably priced and was tasty. It wasn't anything fancy. Just good bar & grill type food.

I come here maybe once every couple years expecting a leopard to change it's spots. The view of the lake is nice... The food would have been average if this was 1980.. totally imagination free. But the service is soooooooooo bad it ruins the entire experience. Today it was so bad I actually had to seek out a manager to... More

The restaurant was recommended by resort staff. We stopped for lunch on a rainy day, which meant we had to eat inside rather than on the deck overlooking the lake. We were seated at a window table and enjoyed the lake view to some extent. The menu had a variety of items, but we both ended up ordering the fish... More

We have gone there twice. The beer is cold and the food is decent. I enjoy the crab-cakes quite a bit. Nothing special. I make better ones at home. However, it does the job. My husband thought his meal was okay. However, the cool lake air on a hot summer day makes it nice. You will wait some time for... More
