There is dining out and then there is eating out. Eating out is commonplace in the Berkshires. It ranges from quick meals where time is the driving factor, or oversize portions where the amount of food takes precedence, and menus where self-described foodies migrate, to high-end establishments guaranteed to satisfy your "I dined there" list. Then there is DINING OUT.... More

Excellent service from the owner, no less. Delightful guy, telling us the story of the place and all the improvements. We sat at the window, watching the sun sink into the hills where NY and MA meet. Ambiance was excellent; food was excellent; wine list was great. Really, this is a gem in Great Barrington, on the left as Rte... More

Absolutely unacceptable service. While the food is perfectly good, the service is so bad that it is worth not going. We waited over an hour for our food and they knew we had 4 young hungry children. They also never came by to check on drinks even once after we got our initial round of drinks. After complaining about the... More

WOW! What a superb evening! We chose a table by the window and watched the sun set. The pianist was amazing, effortlessly playing tunes of a bygone era. Just wonderful! My Swai fish with vegetables was cooked to perfection and my other halfs pork medallions were just as good. We had a bottle of wine which complimented both meals well... More

We were dining with another senior couple and wanted a place where we could easily hear each other. Though it was a minor holiday weekend, we were nearly the only diners. There was pleasant, live background music. Our friends raved about the Cesar salad and my husband (a self-proclaimed connoisseur) said the meatloaf was excellent. The rest of us had... More

What a lovely dinner I had. The ambiance is a pleasing combination of elegance and relaxed country. The welcome was warm and genuine. The food was lovingly prepared. Very pleasant music accompanied my meal. It is on my must return list.

We had a wonderful dinner. Absolutely nothing to complain about. The pianist played beautifully. The ambience was nostalgic of earlier days. It is a true New England experience. A must try. We will definitely go again.

The vista from the dining room is outstanding. The food was fair. One meal was overcooked. They did replace it with another plate cooked as ordered originally. Dinner arrived slowly even though we were the only diners. The server was pleasant. The specials were described, but no prices were indicated. We did order desserts but were surprised to see a...

Four of us went to the Point Restaurant, each ordering a separate entree, to sample the food in our search for a venue for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. All the food was prepared properly and presented very nicely. Pricing was fair and we decided to book the restaurant for the rehearsal dinner. For the rehearsal dinner we chose 2... More

In a world of pubs and bustling nouvelle cuisine and infusions this place is a definite refresher. We were seated in the restaurant at Thornewood Inn, Tastefully set with respectable ambiance. We were immediately greeted and welcomed by our server. Offered refreshments and given a list of specials of the day. The owner came along to check on us as... More
