Barrington Brewery

This local brewery staple not only has a pet-friendly patio area, but it also serves up its own barn-brewed beer and made-from-scratch food. Their menu features everything from local blonds and fruit-flavored ales to stouts and IPAs. Another reason to visit? They clearly care about the environment as they were the first brewery on the east coast to install a solar panel system that supplies solar-heated hot water for brewing. 

Prairie Whale

Formerly an antiques and bookshop, this eatery is unique in both its cuisine and scene, coming together to present an uncommon and unforgettable dining experience. Their seasonal dinner fare changes daily, as does their selection of natural white, red, and orange wines from local importer Bon Raisin. Reserve a patio table soon as it books up quickly.

Aegean Breeze

Be transported across the globe without even having to hop on a flight. This authentic Greek restaurant serves up tapas, fish, and more that welcome both tradition and American influence. Their outdoor bistro-style patio welcomes you to experience Greek island living during the warmer months. 

Bistro Box

Ever tasted delectable food from a self-proclaimed shack? The Bistro Box will help you cross that one off the bucket list and leave your taste buds reminiscing long after you leave the Berkshires. A Great Barrington classic, this bistro’s menu features classic burgers, sandwiches, and salads as well as the fan favorites of crispy onion rings and fried dill pickles. Grab your order and head to the picnic tables—your meal has just begun. 

Cafe Adam

With its three guiding pillars of fresh ingredients, humanely raised meats, and sustainable practices, Cafe Adam is committed to being and serving the best. Chef and owner Adam Zieminski has studied culinary arts all over the world, and it shows. His menu features everything from truffle-honey bread and osetra caviar to lamb gyro and D’Artagnan black angus steak frites. Is your mouth watering yet?
