Located in downtown Turners Falls, The Black Cow is a quaint, cozy place.. great choice of tap beer and a full bar. A good variation of appetizers, and selection of Burgers. After your meal try some of the homemade chocolates, they offer.. must try.

Celebrated my birthday at the Black Cow Burger Bar with a decadent lunch! Started with the pretzel appetizer with the gooey beer laden cheese dip. Three big, soft, generously salted pretzels and lots of dip for ample dunking. Wrapped my mouth around the Cow Tipper Burger and sunk my teeth into a perfectly seared burger piled high with pastrami, swiss... More

I enjoyed the beer sampler with a combination of local and national brews. Burgers were good with many options. Fries were just okay.

Stopped in to buy a gift certificate but the menu and atmosphere looked so good I stayed for lunch and a local beer. Was impressed with the decor....felt like a nice mix of home and community bar. I arrived early afternoon so there was no wait. Sat at the bar and had very friendly service. Expect to wait at peak... More

Well worth the 51 mile drive. Got the Cajun burger spicy but not over the top hot, best onion rings we've ever had. Nice little selection of handmade chocolates as well

We have visited Black Cow Burger since they opened and go back every time we're in the mood for a memorable burger, good service, and fried onion rings that are the closest thing to the ones I grew up on at Philbricks Snack Shack on Nauset Beaches as a kid. Fresh onions, a batter that's light and crispy, with just... More

Out on the motorcycle riding the mohawk trail, stopped in Turners Falls / Montague for some eats. They weren't busy, maybe a few customers. Quick service and friendly. Grabbed a beer and an Angus burger with the baked beans with bacon & onions. The burger was good, not omg amazing and I didn't really expect that anyway. I cook a... More

GF order and dairy-free order graciously accommodated (they have GF burger buns!). Portions are big. Food is fresh and tasty. Waitress was very friendly and well educated about specific food needs. Decor is comfy and unique. Chocolates up front are tempting, tempting, tempting!

Becky and I had "The Cowboy Burger" once again tonight and once again thought, "wow!, this is the place to go for burgers". Barbeque sauce, black angus, topped with onion rings and bacon and cheese and done to perfection, (and to our liking), The Black Cow just can't be beat for burgers. We have tried other burgers on the menu... More
