Good burger

The restaurant itself was not very well kept and still had Christmas decorations out in mid February. Our server was a bit odd. The food was pretty good though. The burgers were good and the caramel apple pie was pleasant

In town on business for a couple days and had dinner there two nights in a row. No gluten free menu, but very knowledgeable staff. Good prices and good portions. Loved the nacho grande!

We were in the Pot Belly on New Year's Day. The festively decorated restaurant not far from Okemo serves great comfort food. We have been here before and normally make our way at least once from Grafton. Once again, the food and service were good. This would have been an "Excellent" rating, but by 8:00 they were out of mac... More

Pot belly is a cozy watering hole in the heart of downtown. They have a nice sized drink menu with wine (even port!), beer, cocktails and even yummy coffee cocktails. We came here mostly for pre-dinner drinks but ended up ordering some apps. Bruschetta: not your typical preparation, this was thick slices of French bread covered with tomato and cheese... More

We got rained out of the slopes so popped in to the pot belly to watch the Pats. Great food, great beer. Adam the bartender was attentive.

Been there many times over the years. It gets worse and worse. I recall having a not so bad meal there around 2001. Poor service and inedible food is the best to describe my last 2 visits

I tried the asparagus ham sandwich, the sausage, kale and bean soup, and the apple cider. All were delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone

Nice variety of moderately priced meals; and a nice atmosphere for a late dinner with family and friends. The service from the staff was excellent- and we had a personal visit from the owner checking on our meal and service. We enjoyed the evening in Ludlow!

We came for a late lunch. Our waiter was attentive but spread a little thin. The deep fried (but not breaded) sea scallops were very tender and sweet. All lunch items were served with French fries and we're piping hot and salty. We also had grilled chicken with a roasted red pepper slice on a roll with basil pesto mayonnaise.... More

The worst food I've ever had. First the service is very very very slow, lots of flies all over the place, had to send our calamari back because it was slimy and looked like it was left out in the sun for days. My turkey sandwich had a nasty bone in the middle of it and tasted like somebody just... More
