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...

We usually come thru Great Barrington looking for a quick sandwich (for which the Barrington Brewery does nicely). This time we were stopping for the night at the Fairfield Inn and wanted a nicer dinner experience. Very glad our travel plans gave us this opportunity to search out and find 20 Railroad. A delightful find on a side street of... More

Liked the place very much during my initial visit that I tried to have lunch there every time I visited GB. Of couse, had the poutine again (and again), wonderful Guinness gravy IMO makes the dish. Please note the serving of poutine is so large that two people can share it. To my regret I was never able to finish... More

We stop in to this place every trip to Great Barrington, MA. It is on Railroad Avenue and the entrance is through a small alley. Their Burgers are excellent as are their soups and chili.

The food was very good. I had the gyro. My mother in law had the burger and my aunt had the spicy hot dog. My 2 year old daughter had the pasta. They were out of sauce and that's just as well. She loved it topped with cheese. My only complaint is the server. She was young and gave ok... More

My wife and I tried the Public House because its posted menu listed some interesting vegetarian choices (we are not strict vegetarians, but will usually choose vegetarian options if they seem more imaginative) and good wine choices from Spain and France. We were not disappointed: great salads, mushroom risotto, house-made vege-burger and a great Rioja. Other diners were clearly enjoying... More
