    Great Barrington's go-to spot for no-nonsense local fare prepared expertly. Go for pork, which comes from owner Mark Firth's own pigs.

    Chicken under a brick + whatever seasonal vegetables they have on the menu will be the best meal you have in the berkshires--so good!

    Chicken under the brick was excellent, albeit a little bit salty. If you can get them to go a little lighter, would be perfect

    Awesome country style cafe. Brunch menu in the weekends. Try the fried chicken and bloody Mary's with smuttynose beer back!

    Get the Coppa, which came from the owners personal pig - it was better than the Coppa I had in Piedmont Italy!

    The soft-egg starter is a winner as was the charming band playing the Saturday night we were there.

    That lemon scone. Get that. The sausages are amazing. Vibe is cozy and cute. Definitely worth the trip.

    Although rated very highly by my peers on FourSquare, I found the food to be better than average but not worth the price. Overall a low value although farm to table ingredients were appreciated.

    Porkchop was delicious. The atmosphere is very "Brooklyn"

    The bacon was great. Also, everything else.

    Great farm-to-table restaurant. Probably the best fried chicken I've ever had. And every pork dish was awesome
