Twenty college friends met at Knox Trail Inn. Our server was Marilyn, Not only was the food excellent, but Marilyn was solely assigned to serve drinks as well as the dinner menu. She was simply a wonderful person who quickly and efficiently handed all our orders with her pleasant manner.

I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed my meal. I went with a friend from Eastern Massachusetts and we sat at the bar and ordered our meal. We were told to go to the salad bar in another room, but I wasn't very excited about it. Everything in the salad bar was wonderfully fresh and incredibly delicious. It... More

The Knox Trail Inn is an OK place to eat. I am sure all the second home owner think it is great. But when you are here all year round and you see the cook staff keep changing and the menu stays the same. What does that tell you. I think there is a problem with management. The business is... More

We have been coming to the Knox Trail Inn for several years, while summering in the Berkshires. The food has always ranged from OK to excellent, and the activity in the dining room reflected that. Tonight, the tip-off should have been the, uh, "rustic locals" smoking and drinking bottled beer at the entrance, or perhaps, all the empty tables (save... More

Great place, don't let the outside fool you. Bartenders and staff are friendly and the drinks are cold. Prime rib and burgers are amazing. Let me say again, the burgers are amazing. Big, juicy, and tasty.

Waited an hour to get waited on. Finally went up to the bar and was told the the kitchen closed two minutes ago. That was the last call. As week end customers for years, this place has fallen into the abyss. Terrible service, rude, limited menu, however the food is consistent, unfortunately it is also bad. Too bad, this place...

Like many here, I was initially put off by the service. The bartender was looking on her phone, went into the back, came out, and went into the back again, and never made eye contact with me. But once we established contact I was very pleasantly surprised. I was put off at first by the limited pre-5pm menu, as I... More

Although you may receive a terrific burger from time to time, the quality of food is very unreliable. I have received a very bad meal more often than not and the staff is close to hostile to "out of towners". (I have visited this restaurant many times because of a job that kept me in the area and Knox Trail... More

I've had dinner at the Knox Trail Inn several times over the past few years and it's been great and it's been not-so-great. Tonight, my steak and cheese grinder was pretty good, especially the restaurant-made roll which was pretty yummy with herbs on it and really fresh. The steak was real meat, not some pasted together meat product. My boyfriend... More
