Nice atmosphere in a small town

First of all, there just aren't that many restaurants to choose from in Williamstown, so we were just glad to find a nice place for a burger and salad.

My friend and I went to Williamstown last summer. Stayed in a B & B for 2 nights, saw a play at Williamstown Theatre Festival, had dinner at Hops & Vines, walked around town, the went to The Clark Art Museum on our way back home to NYC area. Was expecting more from Hops & Vines, to be honest. They... More

We enjoyed coming here and being the pub-like environs. (We sat on the bar side.) Food was fine, only complaint (and most readers won't care) is that it is very vegan-unfriendly. One cannot even get a vegetable that is vegan, they are all done in butter.

The only reason I am giving this a rating of "poor" as opposed to "terrible," is because the atmosphere in the Vines side is warm and gracious -- AND because most of the waitstaff are friendly and professional -- AND because Gordon H. is a terrific bartender. But a restaurant must ultimately succeed or fail on the quality of its... More

We like the Vines side, and especially when they have changed up the menu. It's a quiet, comfortable, classy place to meet up with friends or have a nice couples evening. Lots of local products offered on the menu.

I really want to like Hops and Vines. It's one of only two upscale restaurants in Williamstown, and it has a great beer list. So it pains me to report that last week's dinner easily earned a spot on my 'bottom 10" list. The problem was overcooking. The flat iron of beef seems to have been cooked for the better... More

Stopped in for late lunch/early supper on Saturday. Attractive setting, good service. Wonderful seasonal mixed drinks, and good beer selection on tap. Menu before 5 pm was extremely limited, mostly snacks. However, they DID offer a hamburger with fries. At $17, seemed extremely overpriced, but we ordered it anyway. It. Was. Worth. Every. Penny! Wonderful beef, cooked to perfection, with... More

Came here spontaneously for lunch. First time here, and we'll definitely be back! We sat in the "Hops" section of the restaurant, server Moira? was excellent! She was very knowledgeable about the Beer selection. Food was slightly overpriced but very good! Also love that they are open for lunch!

We would not return to eat here. The food and drink are overpriced and what was intended to be a fairly casual dinner turned out to be the most expensive of our 2week trip to New England. The food is OK, but not worth the asking price. In addition I found the service to be over-the-top in what came across... More

Great place to meet up with friends. Beer selection superb, wine by the glass list is small but fine. The food, however, is pretty average and the food service is quite slow. It's really just a beer and wine gathering place.
