Hubby and I were at the renovated Clark Institute, where the cafes on premises were too busy and running out of fare on a busy July afternoon. We left, intending to return to the museum (which we did). We happened on Hops and Vines. We shared a sandwich and salad, and had some nice wine by the glass. The service... More

My wife and I shared a lovely lunch in the garden, while everyone else was inside—go figure! I had the tuna salad. She had the beet salad. And we both enjoyed delicious local beers. Even passed the time reading books from the lobby. Service was friendly and efficient and we would definitely go back.

The restaurant was attractive and for a slow day in Williamstown, seemed pretty busy. The bar was modern, comfortable and there is a fantastic bartender. The food, for the most part was excellent. We found a bad oyster (PEI) but I'm pretty sure the kitchen can't control that (even though it put us off eating the rest). I didn't care... More

Here visiting for the day, we went with locals for a light supper and had a great time. Attentive and knowledgable staff, we enjoyed well presented drinks and chose from the bar menu. 5 steak frites were tasty, well cooked and nicely accompanied by salad or fries..... I had the burger- excellent choice- a parmesian crisp on the burger was... More

Never could feel comfortable in this place, have tried it three times now... and it is in my hometown. Kind of an elitist vibe... not my scene, but if you are into that then it could be for you. It just feels like everyone in the place is trying to pretend they are not in a rural environment... like there... More

Hops & Vines was recommended to us by locals. We went on a quiet Sunday afternoon. We loved everything about this place. The food was spectacular, the drinks were fabulous and we would be here often if we lived in the area. Staff was friendly and attentive. We asked for recommendations on drinks and food and were greatly pleased with... More

We had been hesitant to try Hops and Vines because of mixed reviews, but a generous gift certificate could not be ignored. We were seated immediately and ordered drinks while waiting for friends. Everything that followed was just short of perfect. Nice wine, not your everyday food - I mean that in a good way - even the dessert brownie... More

Last evening we had a birthday celebration dinner with our daughter and her friend (and their friends) and were blown away by not only the amazing food but also the service. Our waiter was well versed and attentive without being overbearing. All six of us felt our meals were some of the best we've ever had - anywhere! The desert... More

My wife and I almost fell over when we were served the most pretentious looking fish dinner we have ever seen. We didn't know whether to laugh because it was so stupid and preten- tious or cry because it was so stupid and vacuous, We looked at each other, our hopes for a great meal dashed! We were jilted. .There... More
