Food was great, I recommend the burgers and onion rings! The chicken philly was delicious also. Prices are good. Waitstaff was great. A nice little place.

The Lantern is a great place for sandwiches or a burger. I visit mostly for lunch or a quick meal. My usual is a burger, without a roll, with a side of fries and cold slaw. They also offer a wide range of sandwiches including my 2nd choice of corned beef on rye. In the winter, there is always a... More

A delightful find for lunch...an old fashioned lunch counter unchanged since it opened in 1926. Great food, basic and fresh. Real jazz playing on the sound system with the joint festooned with photos of jazz greats. When in Pittsfield don't miss it!

Can you go wrong when there are a half dozen decent drafts on tap, jazz on the sound system, EPL on the tube, and great flame grilled burgers cooked exactly as you request? Vinegary slaw. Tasty reubens. Hot crispy fries. Photos of jazz greats on the wall. And the price is right! The man behind the Lantern is a drummer... More

Went here for lunch while leaf watching. The previous reviews were spot on, the BEST burger in Pittsfield. Yes, the place is not that inviting from the outside only because of the location, "Main Street" Pittsfield, but once inside the place is a real nice restaurant. Very few tables, about 5, and a sit down bar. We were 4 senior... More

The Lantern is a small but nice little restaurant in downtown Pittsfield. It features a long bar and a long series of tables along the opposite wall. Since it is close by a theater it is popular with patrons. The menu features a selection of deli sandwiches, salads and burgers of various sizes. I had a hard time choosing but... More

Stopped in to The Lantern for a burger and beverage. The place is a old fashion bar which has a good menu. The burgers and fries were delicious. We will definitely go to The Lantern the next time we are in town.

Our granddaughter is interning for the summer in Pittsfield. The Lantern is a small corner restaurant/bar on North St. (around the corner from Barrington Stage Company) that promotes 'best burger'. The entire street is getting new sidewalks and curbs, so there was some construction to navigate. We went on a weekday evening and sat at the bar. There are six... More

We like the Lantern for a burger of quick meal before a performance at nearby Barrington Stage Owner and chef Mark Papas is a jazz fan with music on and vintage photos on the walls. The burgers are but bun doesn't hold up. The turkey burger can be a bit dry and needs help from condiments. The chili lacks heat,... More

Always enjoy my meal here! I have only sat at the bar so it is always really quick. It's a nice and clean atmosphere-not what you would expect from the outside appearance. It's one of my favorite spots in Pittsfield. I seem to miss it a lot though, I have tried to come a few times at what I thought... More
