Restaurant sits on a lovely lake, professional service, clean and spacious. We had 2 appetizers and 3 entrees. The steak was fine but the mussels and crab cakes had very little taste. Sides of baked potatoes and zucchini reminded me of school lunches. I will avoid in the future.

We ended up here on a Sunday night when there were few options for a last minute reservation before Tanglewood. The dining room was dark and dated, but there was a lovely view of the lake. The salads that came with the main courses were pedestrian, and the sole Almondine special was tasteless and greasy. My husband made a point... More

A real treat in the Berkshires - authentic old building with many antiques, super view and splendid - delicious food with correct (modest) portions. Attentive and correct service friendly too. Good wine choice. Prices reasonable.

The dining room was decorated in an old fashioned, New England style. It was a bit too dark. Service was slow. When I received my duck, it looked like it was fried. I asked the waitress (yes, politely!) if it was fried and she got very defensive: "A lot of people love that plate, etc" and walked away in a... More

We went to cork n hearth for dinner tonight. The room although dated overlooks the lake and has a lot of nice landscaping both inside and out. Unfortunately the quality of the food is very poor. The coconut shrimp had a very good Thai sauce but the shrimp themselves where very uninspired and overlooked. I then had the veal which... More

We stopped here on a return journey from Tanglewood because it was the only 'dining' restaurant we saw on our trip up from the Mass Pike. The name and the promise of "dine with a lake view" had us ready to find a fine dining establishment. That is exactly what we found. The menu was fairly long with many choices... More

Went to eat dinner here with two elderly friends last week. One, who had a cane, had difficulty negotiating the stairs down to the restaurant level from the upper parking lot so patrons should be aware of the need to park in the lot in front of the restaurant. We were seated at a table looking out at the lake,... More

I like the old tavern but meals in front of the fireplace or overlooking the lake are big draws too. Good basic food and on a recent trip the best black bean soup I had had in years. My burger was great too..
