This restaurant, located just east of the Williams College campus, is a great spot to watch a game on the TVs over the bar, have one of a wide variety of draught brews (national and local), and to enjoy a good snack or meal. The menu is heavy on the usual pub fare (sandwiches, pastas, burgers), but there is also... More

We stopped by after a visit to the Clark Museum. A couple of things irked us... We were seated first, but the table behind us was waited on first, I know, it's petty, but... Second, companion ordered a beer, and the tap ran out, so the waitress delivered a half of a glass of beer, but we were charged full... More

Off the beaten path but what a great variety of food. I had the Black & Blue salad and my husband had the linguini with meatballs. Both were ample portions and very flavorful. We had a cozy view of Water Street from the large bay window.

I had an early dinner there so can't really judge the atmosphere when the restaurant fills up. Food was good; waitress was very helpful and made appropriate suggestions.

I have rated this outlet average as we hadn't finished our starters when the main meal arrived, it's as if they were in a rush, although it was early evening and there were not too many customers in at the time. That said, the Clam Chowder was GREAT, ....we had fish n chips for the main, fish was really good,... More

When our son played basketball at Williams, this was our regular eating spot. So later on, when he and his fiancé decided to get married in Williamstown, it was a natural to ask if they could do the rehearsal dinner. Hannah and her team just did a wonderful job. We had the room to the right as you enter. Everything... More

Loved my meal! At the waitress' suggestion I had the crab cake sandwich. And she doesn't eat seafood, but said it is popular there. It was outstanding. I also substituted the eggplant fries for the green bean fries. The eggplant fries were to die for. If you even remotely like eggplant, you must try these. Yum! I also had the... More

Unexpectedly good food! We had the steamed clam scampi appetizer. The clams were cooked perfectly and the scampi sauce was to die for. The bread sticks worked great to soak up the excess sauce!! I had a bourbon mushroom chicken sandwich on ciabatta bread. The bread made the sandwich because it was stiff enough to support the bourbon glazed chicken.... More

Don't stop here for a gourmet food. The waitstaff was great and friendly. If you are looking for a burger, wings or other happy hour type food then they are a good stop. Seems like it is a college bar hang out.

Thank Sean T
