Expensive yes, but amazing. You get an authentic experience from the Delicious food to the decor and atmosphere. The owners are born and raised in Greece and really great people. They don't just own it, they work there too. He's the head chef and his wife hosts and helps wait tables. They take a lot of pride in their place.... More

When we arrived it took the host about 10 minutes to seat us, there was only one group in front of us (group of three). Then about 5-10 minutes until someone brought us water and they didn't even say a word to us just placed the water on the table. Then another 5 minutes until our waitress came over and... More

...because we were hoping for so much more. The restaurant was purchased by someone who currently owns another restaurant in Lenox. That other restaurant as many friends said, had many things lacking as well. It seems they have brought that to 20 Railroad and rather than any improvement it has lowered the quality and service yet farther. One particular disappointment... More

With so many closings of favorite restaurants in Great Barrington, we really were looking forward to Public House opening. It is right in the center of town, and the prior restaurant 20 Railroad Street, while not fancy served moderately priced pub food that was enjoyed by all. The new menu is more expensive and offers far fewer options. In fact... More

The food was tasteless and the service was painfully slow. We sent the onion soup back because it had little cheese and virtually no onion. Brought friends from out of town and was very embarrassed.

Drove straight here after the trip up from NYC and met friends here. The kitchen closes at 10:00 pm, so don't plan a late night. The staff were wonderful - very friendly and quite helpful. We all had burgers after having them recommended highly. It was a good call. The cocktails were good, they have a small but reasonable wine... More

We had stopped going to the old 20 Railroad Street but decided to give it a shot now that it's under new ownership. Had lunch and very impressed with all of the "elevated" bar food. Tried the Korean wings, the French Onion Soup, Burgers (both meat and bean) and the Reuben. All very tasty. The service is a little slow... More

I stopped here for lunch with a friend from the area. Its open area and tightly packed table arrangement is not most conducive to quiet conversation, especially when you're seated next to a family with small children. Nevertheless they found us a corner table where we were able to have a decent chat. The burgers were great. The meat was... More

We walked in and it was very busy. Short staffed they said best to sit at the bar which was fine with us. My boyfriend ordered the burger and me the asparagus salad. The burger I was told was the best he has had. We were told it was gained twice daily from Short Ribs and Brisquit. With the bread... More
