Great little place for lunch

"Home of lousy food, warm beer, and grumpy owner" it proudly advertises on the outside. Tom, the owner, is actually pretty pleasant but I could see where he could get unpleasant if you offend him. The atmosphere is rough, rustic, and comfortable. Food is good to very good. Nachos were excellent as... read more

Average or above. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere comfortable. Craft beers are tasty. It's a nice place, but there are many like this around. I would go back. Only ate an appetizer, so can't say for sure how good the food is. If the food is good, I would raise this to a "very good" status. Gets real... More

Had regularly visited the loft for adult beverages, but had a sit down lunch this past Saturday with friends and family. Service, quality, and QUANTITY were exceptional. Tom visited our table a couple of times, and made sure the kids in our group were well attended. Will definitely be back!!!

We have a place on Okemo and often can be found at the Loft. There is a great selection of beers, a fair selection of wines and top shelf liquors if you like. The food is bar food but golly it's good and there's lots of it. The worn building is loaded with atmosphere. Staff is great. Tom is a... More

Overall a fun bar with a local feel and great beer selection. A little run down, especially the bathrooms but it is a bar so I guess a little to be expected. The food is consistently good and they do a lot of little things like make thier own salsa which really adds to your meal. Definitely a place to... More

Burgers are huge. I really like the ski bum atmosphere here. The beers on tap are really good as well. I have always felt very comfortable at the Loft. You can really be casual and take in the long history of the place. The staff is very nice if not a bit colorful as well.
