Wife and I discovered this place three years ago and thought it was great., and we went back at least one other time. Last year, we were looking for a place to have lunch in Great Barrington, and 20 Railroad was closed with paper covering the windows. Great Barrington has a problem with restaurant longevity, so we assumed that this... More

Food was well prepared and tasty. The manhattan I had was excellent. The brussels sprouts were a huge portion. The 3$ bread butter was a rip off for 2 pieces of rustic bread.

Second time here one year apart on a Sunday afternoon. Service was a bit slow but still friendly and pleasant. Burger and fries very good and wine by the glass was good too. Will return.

We stopped by on our way out of the area and this place was hopping. Busy, busy, busy! It is defiantly a bar venue and because it was so busy, and everyone was having a great time, it was unbearably loud! So loud in fact that if we were not on our way home I probably would have left, remember... More

Public House features locally farmed food prepared with a creative flair. One of the best burgers I've ever had - beef ground on site. Located on charming Railroad St downtown

Seats about 40, a couple of artisanal beers on tap. Intreating menu. The three meals we had were good. My child's fish and chips was exceptional. The barman was cranking out intreating looking cocktails. I settled for the stout. The interior has a red brick finish and wooden floor, it looks the part I would recommend a visit to this... More

My husband and I didn't think we'd find anything good late on the evening before Thanksgiving. Not only was the Railroad House open, but ready for a busy evening. I like lite, fancy meals while my husband likes a good steak or hamburger. We both got what we wanted and were very pleased.

Thank Feliciastruth
