We stopped in during a weekend trip to the Berkshires. They don't take reservations, but we're seated in a just a few minutes. Excellent burgers and sandwiches. Nice bar area with a few tables outside as well. Definitely stop in for a casual meal!

Visited with family, nice beer selection. Excellent wings, salads and burgers. Small but doesn't feel rowed even when full.

Hidden Gem on Main Street frequented often by the locals. Great burgers and interesting sides. Recommend the wings. Good bar and great service. We usually follow up dinner with ice cream at SoCo right around the corner.
