Great Beer & Patio

We went here for lunch as part of a stay in nearby North Adams. The patio was lovely, the food was upscale pub food and they had a great selection of beer.

This was our second visit and we had the same opinion both times. the seating outside is lovely, the menu interesting and the food well,prepared. The inconsistencies are in the service. Perhaps it's sitting outside though by now they she hv that worked out. Our first waitress disappeared and the second apologized profusely for the mix up. It took a... More

Food is OK, but nothing special. Seems to be quite a popular with place with all the locals, as the place was recommended by several town residents.

Fair food in a nice location, more aimed at the college crowd. Enjoyable to sit outside with a good glass of wine, but inside is more of a bar scene. We didn't make it in the restaurant, so no knowledge there.

The location was so nice! It is what that a person looks for after a day spent visiting an amazing place as the Clark Museum. The staff was very polite and friendly. The courses proposed were a very surprise. I've never ate something like that, with a special flavour guarantee by healthy and fresh food. I'll suggest you!

Even though this place has limited vegetarian (or fishetarian) options, the two dishes I had were outstanding: local goat cheese with crostini and some other goodies, really delicious; and a top-notch main dish, cauliflower and some other ingredients (fennel, pearl onions I think, some goat cheese), expertly prepared, as good a main dish veggie option as you'll find!

A perfect restaurant! The food was delicious and thoughtfully prepared, the decor sophisticated and welcoming, and the service spot-on. Our server, Matt, was informative and friendly. Even the artwork was exactly right.

This place is very welcoming, and has a limited but diverse menu that allows the kitchen to send out delicious, wonderfully seasoned food, with something for everyone. We aren't vegetarians, but we'd had a big lunch and were looking for something on the lighter side. We shared a kale and bacon soup, (creamy but not heavy), a lovely heirloom tomato... More

After hours of touring the stunning Clark Art Institute, we were ready for a relaxing night of good food and drink in a laid-back elegant environment. Oysters were also a priority. And we found it all! We were warmly welcomed to this renovated brick building done in a relaxed contemporary style. The menu was varied and we took advantage of... More
