Drove by on our way through the Berkshires and decided to swing in. We are so glad we did. Pancakes light and fluffy just the way you imagine a great pancake to taste. My husband ordered the Omega and was handed a plate full of delicious eggs hash and toast very filling. Our daughter ordered a meat lovers omelette that... More

We stopped here for breakfast today, the food was delicious, the waitress was absolutely lovely. It felt like we were immediately family. The place is very Pink, and you can tell they didn't spend a lot of time worrying about the decor, but you won't care at all. It's a good, clean place to get a solid breakfast

Rita Marie's is a nice little quaint place where you can get good homemade food. You can have breakfast or lunch all day, which is great. The people are very nice too.

Went there for dinner and had a great waitress named Chrissy. We had liver and onions (which was perfectly done) and a Thanksgiving turkey sandwich with a homemade sausage stuffing patty and real turkey breast which was out of this world. However. we bought 2 quarts of homemade ice cream that were incredibly creamy and yummy.

We drove up to the Berkshires for a weekend away. Got up too late for dinner but woke up early for breakfast. Looked like a dump but it was great. Very rustic. Food was wonderful and service very nice!! We even took back ice cream for later.

Rita Marie' is a small little place off the beaten path. It doesn't look like much from the outside or the inside for that matter. It seems to be a locals favorite. It is a fairly small place so if you go during peak meal times you may have to wait for a table. We were there on Sunday morning... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and if you want good old comfort food, then this is the place for you. The portions are generous and home cooked. The piece 'de resistance is the home made ice cream. Even if you don't stop for a meal, try the ice cream. You'll be glad you did.
