Best BBQ

One of the best pulled pork and brisket I have had including a couple of places in ST Louis. I went here after a ski day with my adult son and had a great time. The beer was cold the food was good.

From the outside this place looks like a typical ski area drinking saloon. Don't be fooled the food here is great. Brisket is the best. Chowder when Tommy ( the owner and sometimes cook) has it in the menu is great. Lots of craft beer and prices reasonable. If at Okemo save room and time for the loft. Can be... More

I have been eating at the Loft for years and years. Consistently good food, huge portions and the best beer selections in the area. It is kind of an apre ski place with the usual juke box, ski folks and a little noisy. But that is what makes the place fun. You cant go wrong at The Loft!

Instead of sitting in traffic this is a good spot to stop at. Located next to the base lodge it's your basic watering hole that's cheaper than drinking at the resort with lots of local skiers hanging out

We stopped in here to catch the first half of the Pats game, there was no shortage of tvs, we managed to snag the last two seats in the lower section of the bar. The beer was cold/fresh, and the bartender was really attentive. We didn't order food cause we were stopping in quick, but the couple next to us... More

Best wings. I don't care what the contest at Jackson Gore said. The best wings come from here. They're huge, ALL the sauces are delicious and I can never get enough. Burgers are good too.

Happy to have found this place! Atmosphere is friendly and way casual, food is awesome! We both had barbecue, he the brisket and me the pulled pork - portions are huge! The food was great, including the fries, plenty for leftovers which were also great. We will definitely be back!

We found this funky, local tavern by chance. All the meats are smoked on the premises and sauces are homemade. Try the ribs and Beef Brisket Sandwich. You will not be disappointed. Also lots of local beers on tap.

We are regulars at at Tom's Loft which is adjacent to our condo in Okemo. The food is so tasty and there is food for everyone - with plenty of options for vegetarians. On Saturday evening we started off with one of those precious moments, when Sue, a waitress at the Tavern, stopped her car and recognized us even though... More

The atmosphere is ski resort cool. The beer selection is the best in town. What surprises you is the quality of the food. Hand cut fries, house made wing sauces, hand breaded chicken tenders. Not your average bar food, not your average bar.
