We always enjoy the food at Barrington Brewery & Restaurant; however, recently the service was not so good. Our server never returned once our food was delivered to our table, even to see if my burger was cooked correctly or if we needed more water. The woman who seated us cleared our table and asked how everything was. She then said, "You shouldn't eat meat. It's not good for you." Boy is she BAD for business! She then continued to tell us that we should be eating plant based products, and asked, "Would you like dessert?" My reply was, "Sweets are not good for you either."

this place was really hyped up by people in the area, but it was not our favorite place. nothing bad, might have been over anxious. we didn't care for the cheese soup as it was touted as a house favorite, sort of blah with a little after taste. our meals were fine, but i have had better,,,,i had ribs and didn't like the preparation and sauce. nice portions ....we were full but desserts looked great....service was good.

On one of our last nights in the Berkshires we decided to attend a movie. We stopped at this restaurant because it was rated well. It deserved its rating. They had a nice selection their own beers as well as ‘outsiders’ beers. They don’t start serving dinner before 5:00pm so we selected from the lunch menu. There is a significant difference. If you was prime roast or steak go after 5. The lunch menu had a wide variety of wraps sandwiches, burgers and salads. There were also good coffee and locally made deserts. It was a comfortable environment to sit in and enjoy the drink and food.

Early dinner with wife Deb here was a pleasant experience. My scallop dinner commenced with beer/cheese soup which needed some seasoning was tasty but was missing a lttle zip. A small salad with onions was presented nicely. The scallops served with a mixed vegetable of,cauliflower, carrots, and beans, served in a buttery goodness had me moaning with pleasure. On sampling Debs delicious baked haddock, I it delicious, but her beer fries were to Die For! Ymmmm. Started with a 20oz cask brew, which I savored before and during the meal, was very good, and for dessert
I opted for their Raspberry Ale. Great Beer pub atmosphere, attentive waitresses,good prices,and a great beer and wine selection would make this a place I would return to when in the Great Barrington area. Did I tell you how good the fries were?

As ever in American restaurants the portions are generous and this was no different other than this was good, fresh food well cooked - and washed down with delicious real ale. The menu is varied and it was difficult to make a choice. I couldn’t manage dessert but I did help my husband with his blueberry pie which was mouthwateringly good!
