The Purple Pub has been remodeled completely since its days as the old Spring Street town bar. Now it has great IPA's, multiple TV's, and a nice menu.

Had dinner here on Saturday night. Lucky to get a table at 6:30, but it got quieter by the time we left. Lots of TVs to watch the college football games. Service was very good, prices are reasonable. We shared the "Mount Greylock" fries (french fries with cheese sauce and lots of bacon), I had the Cubano sandwich, my wife... More

Nice pub and nice crowd where you get exactly what you expect in this college town pub near Williams College ein North Adams. Can't wait to go back when it is warmer to enjoy the outdoor seating.

We were looking for casual American food and tried the Purple Pub on what turned out to be their weekly Trivia night. The pub was crowded with customers eager to play the game, but we managed to get a table and order fish and chips and adult beverages. The service was friendly and the food nicely prepared and promptly delivered,... More

Try the classic sauce for the wings! Amazing! My Cobb salad was awesome. Loved the atmosphere as well as the service! Great stop in this college town.

The place looks great on the outside. It os a not ce looking yard. Pleasant place to have a beer. Food is average. We had the meatloaf which is a house specialty. Portion was generous and flavour OK, but a bit dry. Onion rings were awesome. It was trivia night, which was a bit of a drag if you are... More

Stopped by here on a Monday night. Our party of three was greeted promptly and we were allowed to choose our table. The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating and plenty of it. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The dinner menu offered the usual pub items and a nice selection of beer and other drinks. We were happy with... More

Since the Purple Pub was renovated a few years back, it’s a great spot for food/drinks. There’s plenty of seating both inside and outside. There are always lots of different beers on tap, including a variety of local options. The food is fairly standard pub fare which isn’t particularly noteworthy, but generally tasty. We particularly like the pub nachos.

The Purple Pub has been the place to gather in Williamstown since 1973, serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Whether you're looking for traditional pub food or delicious entrees, we have you covered. Patrons can drink and dine at the large mahogany bar or in the comfort of the semi-private dining room. Come watch the game on one of our large screen televisions or enjoy a romantic dinner with someone special. Don't forget to try one of our 14 draft beers (we have bottled beer too), served in a frosted glass.
