For many years we have gone to the Castle St. cafe before performances at the Mahaiwe Theatre. I have recently been ill, and have dietary restrictions, which most restaurants accommodate. Our waitress said that there would be no problem. I cannot have either tomatoes or the spice, pepper. My dish was served covered with tomatoes. It was returned obviously rinsed... More

We go to enormous lengths to accommodate the dietary restrictions of our guests. The entire menu is marked as to what is naturally gluten free, and what could be adjusted to be made gluten free. We have numerous regular customers who dine here precisely because we honor and respect their dietary concerns. if you have eaten here before, you will... More

The restaurant has a nice menu. The food is delicious and presented nicely. They have a good wine selection. It is in the center of town and has outside sitting too.

This was our first time here for dinner even though we live in Berkshire County. My husband had the meatloaf and I had the filet mignon. We weren't disappointed and would like to try other things on the menu next time. It was a beautiful night and we sat outside.

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived. There was only one open table. The theatre next door had let out and they filled up all at once. It took a little longer for us to be waited on and served because of the situation. However, that being said, the staff was hustling and doing their best. We got our... More

There are 2 sections to the restaurant. We enjoy the less formal bar which usually has free tables without a reservation. The specials we always like are the French onion soup and an excellent hamburger and fries. Some evenings in the bar there is live music. Check it out.

Thanks. Some people prefer the bar atmosphere, some like the slightly more formal main dining room-we offer a variety of settings, and try to make everyone welcome and comfortable More

I think the food here is wonderful. Menu is very varied and much of the food is locally grown. Service is good and weekends there is live jazz in the bar. The bar menu is also quite good if you are looking for lighter fare and cocktails.

Ate here last night with the family. Server was competent but did not make us feel welcome. No specials. Food was fine. No one was that impressed or disappointed. They often have music in the bar area- nothing too loud which is nice. You can eat in the bar area if you like crowds, noise, and general discomfort, or in... More

What great food within walking distance to our motel. Thankfully they had a sign on the corner which directed us up the block a bit, otherwise we might of walked right by. Great prix fixe menu. The braised short ribs were so tender. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection. (not on prix fixe) Wait staff was kind and attentive... More

Castle Street has an excellent bar menu and dining menu (both menus available in the bar). Staff is friendly and professional; you are greeted with a smile at the door and prompt seating. They do get busy and do not take reservations for parties under 5 people but they have ample seating and you can sit at the bar for... More
