Love this restaurant! Some of our faves are the Buffalo Rangoon, Tex Mex chips, Grilled Zucchini sub and the Peanut butter pie. The staff here are great and most waitstaff are super friendly and accommodating. A special beer list changes periodically and you can get a sampler of 4 beers for just $5! Everyone we tell about this place becomes just as obsessed as we are with eating here!

If you are traveling to Pittsfield on business the place to stay is the Crowne Plaza and this bar/grill restaurant is in walking distance. I ordered the J. Allen steak and was very glad I did. A nice size sirloin steak with grilled onions and mushrooms plus their special beer molasses sauce. Very flavorful and tasty sauce - didn't need any A1. They also make great desserts.

We stopped in here last Friday night for a drink and a snack. We split a Cuban sandwich, and an order of Asian dumplings. Both were good -what we expected, and a beer from their extensive menu. We ended up closing the place with a delicious lemon drop martini, and would have had another if last call wasn't at 1am!

We're in Pittsfield periodically on monkey business, so we'll definitely stop in again next time.

I've been in here several times for lunch, drinks and dinner. I think my most recent experience will be my last because of a horrible waitress.
The owner/manager is always there and he really seems to be trying. They have free football squares that have raffle prizes which is a cute idea.
The food just isn't good. The fish tacos are the only thing I have found that I will eat. The sandwiches and even salads are mediocre/disappointing. Pizza is boring and blah. It's too bad because they have a decent atmosphere in the bar area.
Recently, a group of us came in for after work drinks and some were having dinner. Right off the bat we could tell the waitress was, ahm, unfriendly. One of us had a water bottle with her and our waitress' reaction was ridiculous!! She was almost to the point of yelling at her for having the water bottle. She started with "you can't have that in here." Not completely unreasonable but it was the way she said it and she kept repeating it. We heard her the first time. Relax. We suggested she put it away in her briefcase. Oh no! The waitress would simply not allow that and told us so. The waitress then continued on ranting about how she doesn't know what's in that bottle and if we don't like it, we can take it up with the Alcohol and Beverage Commission. (we still had not even said a word to indicate that we had a problem with this policy.) Then she 'confiscated' the silly water bottle and told us that we could have it back upon exit. No thanks. We wanted to leave right then and there but it was a large group and we didn't want to uproot everyone. However, we all felt uncomfortable and called the night short and went to Mazcots instead. On the way out, we walked by her and she just looked at us. The owner was nice enough to thank us and tell us to have a good night. I was on the fence about this place for a while and really wanted to find the good in it but that waitress was the nail in the coffin. Not going back.
