When our sons could not make it to our house for Thanksgiving, my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a stay at the Orchards in Williamstown, MA. As part of the attraction, the restaurant, The Gala, offered a special Thanksgiving Day three course menu. We were in no hurry during our meal which helped because the restaurant was... More

Wednesday night, my wife and I decided to go out, figured we didn't need a reservation for mid-week. Forgot it was leaf-peeper season! We arrive and see that the dining room is reserved for tour groups. Hostess is about to seat us in the lounge (also nice, but we prefer the dining room), when the service captain Sasha comes by...

Delicious food at the bar, friendly professional staff, and good food. Really happy to know that there is a restaurant in this hotel for breakfast and a late dinner at the bar after Williams sports. Great recommendation!

My wife and I eat out almost every day and sometimes twice a day. If this restaurant was in our town at home we would be going here 3-4 times a week. We are staying at a timeshare but decided to go to brunch on Sunday. I had the 3 egg omelet and my wife had salmon on a bagel.... More

Whether dining formally in the restaurant or informally in the pub, a diner can't go wrong. We especially enjoy the more informal atmosphere of the pub, but the quality of the food is just about as good as it gets. The menu offers a wide range of enticing items served appealingly on the plate. A fine selection of beers and... More

It doesn't matter what season we visit GALA, we are always welcomed with friendly waitstaff and scrumptious meals. The menu changes often enough so when we do go back, there is always something new and inviting on the menu. It's worth the extra few dollars to enjoy a meal that includes locally grown produce and food.
