Tucked on a side street in downtown great barrington, I was delighted to find this oasis! Great grass fed burger, excellent service and complimentary live jazz in the bar. Just what I needed to start my weekend getaway after a stressful week.

Castle St Celestial Bar was always a go to place for a reasonably priced well prepared meal with a good wine list and excellent service. Seems that new owner has changed the menu, deleting a lot of items and some of the items are pricier...More

Heading for the Mahaiwe Theater and the Boston Early Music Festival, we dropped in to the Castle Street Cafe for dinner before the performance. As a New York City dweller, I've forgotten how civilized it is to enter a restaurant where the dinner choices are...More
