Where is it? None perceptible in the Wednesday paella, nor in the Friday cioppino. Nor any peas in the paella. And partner's fries with the great burger were limp and greasy. And yet...Great, friendly staff, terrific bar scene, and consistently superb jazz on the weekends.

We usually arrive in GB fairly late on Friday nights, and ever since 20 Railroad changed hands, we have been dining at Castle Street. It is, in a word, wonderful! We always eat in the bar, and the music is generally very good. The food is ALWAYS very good. My regular order is the beet salad and the shrimp quesadilla... More

We had afternoon tea here. The coffee was good and the cakes were even better! The cafe has a lovely feel to it and has plenty of room if there are a few people in your party.

Still the same great staff, great service, great music. Under new ownership, the CSC remains a favorite destination. Sorry to say, though, that Michael is missed in the kitchen. At last outing the iconic shoestring fries were limp and undercooked (the kitchen did replace them with better) and our favorite cioppino, though it had plenty of seafood, was in a... More

We chose this place for a family dinner pretty much at random. We were VERY pleasantly surprised. The cooking can hold its own next to NYC places, really quite original and delicious. The stuffed whitefish was stuffed not with breading, but with vegetables. Also delicious: the steak and the duck. Service was warm and welcoming on a cold day. Wine... More

This is a nice restaurant in Great Barrington. In the center of town, the location is good and the atmosphere is comfortable. They have a great menu full of interesting food combinations using local produce and meats. The appetizers are very expensive and small. The soups are decently priced and very good. Dinner is overpriced for the amount of food... More

Am I the only one who finds the menu hard to read? they use centering and one dish looks like it is a description of the previous? Anyhow, ordered... More
