Second time here one year apart on a Sunday afternoon. Service was a bit slow but still friendly and pleasant. Burger and fries very good and wine by the glass was good too. Will return.

We stopped by on our way out of the area and this place was hopping. Busy, busy, busy! It is defiantly a bar venue and because it was so busy, and everyone was having a great time, it was unbearably loud! So loud in fact that if we were not on our way home I probably would have left, remember... More

Public House features locally farmed food prepared with a creative flair. One of the best burgers I've ever had - beef ground on site. Located on charming Railroad St downtown

Seats about 40, a couple of artisanal beers on tap. Intreating menu. The three meals we had were good. My child's fish and chips was exceptional. The barman was cranking out intreating looking cocktails. I settled for the stout. The interior has a red brick finish and wooden floor, it looks the part I would recommend a visit to this... More

My husband and I didn't think we'd find anything good late on the evening before Thanksgiving. Not only was the Railroad House open, but ready for a busy evening. I like lite, fancy meals while my husband likes a good steak or hamburger. We both got what we wanted and were very pleased.

This place was my favorite in Great Barrington. My guess is that there is new management or ownership since my visit last year. The quality has slipped and prices are too high. We stopped here for lunch today and paid $5.00 for two small pieces of cornbread. Over $8.00 for a small portion of pea soup and an order of... More

This was our second visit to the restaurant since it changed hands. There were 3 adults and 2 young boys. We arrived at 12:30 On a Saturday for lunch. We were seated promptly. We thought the menu was not very accomadating. Anyway we ordered and it took at least 30 MINUTES before it arrived. Granted,the restaurant was crowed but this... More

I've been to this restaurant on several occasions while visiting my son in Great Barrington. The food is really delicious and I look forward to returning. The poutine was really great, the salads have been tasty as have been the burgers. Sometimes the server is a little strange but you can't blame the restaurant on that! I would definitely recommend...
