We arrived around 6 PM on a Friday evening, before the place got crowded. Good beer selection though they were out of one of their featured beers. Service was prompt. Got the last serving of lasagne, which was delicious. By the time we had finished eating the place had filled up and gotten very noisy, and we had to flag... More

Good food, good drinks, outdoor activities like Disc Golf, all presided over by Doug the Bartender. Great "Northern" fried chicken!

We've been coming to Pittsfield in the summer for two years now and hadn't tried the Clear River Tavern before, but we will definitely be back. The place is cute, comfy, and the folks who work there are super nice. They were fast, efficient, and attentive. There was a small issue with our order but it was pointed out to... More

This is one of my absolute favorite places to hang out at whenever I pass through the area. Wish I could be a local! The food is excellent, but I have to admit I am addicted to their very special version of buffalo chicken wings. I cannot go through here without having an order and a beer. The deck is... More

The clear is a great place to enjoy some great food, pizzas, nachos, ribs ,steaks ..... all good. The Clear has recently gone through a nice renovation and is under new management .Doug runs a really fun and family friendly establishment. After eight on weekends you can enjoy some great bands along with your food and beverages.

We stayed in the Killington area recently for a week of snowboarding, and our innkeeper referred us to the Clear River Tavern when I asked for a 'less touristy' place to eat and drink. We liked it so much we ended up going there twice. Not only was the bartender/owner lively and welcoming, so were his patrons; both times we... More

The Clear has new ownership and management, but the most obvious changes are to the decor at the restaurant. The back room is still there, but now it is a bit spruced up. There are table cloths, people, but don't worry, the pool tables are still there. No more Big Buck video game though, sorry. The menu is in a... More

Stopped for a drink after snowboarding while waiting to go to the Backroom for dinner. Bartender was great. Nice bar- all heavy, thick wood. Not crazy busy- but that's the way we like it! We had some local beers and ciders (Citizen Cider, RockArt and Switchback) and a basket of onion rings. Onion rings were fantastic (i know- such a... More
