We tried this place for the first time recently, and found it delightful - a cool spot on a winding country road. We began with a featured cocktail of the day, a grapefruit margarita. Who knew grapefruit and tequila was a marriage made in heaven? We shared the charcuterie, which was a perfect appetizer for two. My husband ordered the... More

As a child I was raised on an Angus farm not far from the general store. Back then it sold sundry items perfect for a child's world: penny candies, ice cold sodas for a nickel, a gentle old proprietor who sometimes gave you three penny candies for the price of one! The world is good when you are 8 and... More

A recent appetizer was Rabbit Loin, a novel and tasty beginning to a meal. The chef may offer rabbit-based dishes periodically, and they are worth trying. Scallops as entree were numerous and properly only lightly sauteed; seasonal dessert was strawberry shortcake, a biit modest in size but better biscuit than one usually gets.

Right in the middle of what seems to be rustic New England nowhere, is a charming, not too large, very cosmopolitan bistro. The Gill Tavern is small and the kitchen, right next to the bar, is as big as a minute and manages to turn out some very nice meals. It's more like a club, with fine food - the... More

We go here all the time. It's unusual to have a restaurant that is excellent in such a small town. We are very lucky. They are into using local ingredients- very fresh. The menu changes often but it's always amazing. Good bar menu and desserts also.

We'd been hearing great things and finally got there. Make a reservation, because it's small and always packed. Very clean, lovely atmosphere, wonderful staff, small bar for socializing but the side room was very quiet. Wide variety on the menu and our food was not only wonderful but came out quickly. We've started inviting friends and family to join us... More

Quaint and cozy restaurant in a former general store. Service was top notch. My Caesar salad was very good, but the wine could have been a bit more generous a pour. The Mrs ordered a mixed drink which tasted better after I stirred it, and her Irish fish cakes were a bit heavy on the potato vs amount of fish.

As long as you don't get spot by the front entrance! The other dining area is perfect, though. Its a nice, cozy place, and the food is good. They have nice, sometimes eclectic, choices.

Great service; wonderful dishes; friendly bistro-like atmosphere. We went to the "dinner club" event and had wonderful duck dishes. And the chocolate "cream" dessert was delicious. Convivial atmosphere. Some people on here have complained about the small menu, but it's a small restaurant with a tiny kitchen . . . so there aren't going to be 100 choices. We have... More

Accent is on fine cooking with wholesome local produce. Always a relaxing atmosphere and good dinner or Sunday brunch! Just 3 miles north of Route 2 @ the Turners Falls bridge, or abut 4 miles east of Rt 10. Even the beef is a product of Gill ranchers.
