Amazing food something for everyone
The food was amazing, as always. This time we went on a Monday to try the Prix Fixe dinner menu. ($20.95 for four courses.) Way too much food - we were all stuffed! Normally the waitresses are very good, but this time we had to wait a very long time to have things brought to the table (drinks, rolls, dessert). Not sure if they were short staffed this particular evening, or if this is the norm during the times the Prix Fixe menu is offered. There were 7 of us and we sat at a round table that seats 8 in a private section off to the side. The restaurant was very, very loud, even from our secluded spot. Great spot for groups, though. There is always something for everyone on the menu, even with the special menu offered.

We absolutely love Cal's.
We absolutely love Cal's. We were huge fans of a popular restaraunt in Northampton but now are your biggest fans. We recommend you to all our family and friends. Just not a huge fan of the Prix Fix menu.

I have driven by Cal's many times and never stopped to check it out. I decided to use OpenTable one busy Friday night (60 to 70 min wait at local chain restaurant). 15 minutes later, we were seated and ordering drinks (decent wine list). The service was friendly and accurate. The food was very good. My steak was actually rare (bloody) for a change. I will definitely be dining at this restaurant again!
The only con was parking. The lot is a little small when they are busy. I was lucky to follow some people leaving and took their spot. There is another lot across the street to park in.

Never a disappointment
Cal's has always been a fine restaurant to turn to for a relaxing, comfortable place to bring friends and family to enjoy a pleasant evening out.

Our visit to Cal's was very good on this occasion. This night, they had a number of good specials including a pork roast with sweet potatoes that was very well presented and tasty. Service was prompt. Overall, Cal's was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed this visit.

Great place to eat
Food was great, but wish they had an easier access to get upstairs for the elderly and disabled, and also wish they offered low in sugar or sugar free desserts that diabetics could eat.

Mother's Day Dinner
I have been to Cals many times before so knew what to expect. All four of us enjoyed our meals They were very busy yet our waitress was friendly and the food, apps, etc. were served in a timely fashion. One small negative was that even though out reservation was for 7:00, we were not seated until 7:40 or so. We were able to get a small table in the bar area and enjoy a glass of wine so it worked out fine. Considering it was the night before Mother's Day, it was handled very well. We'll go back for sure,

Excellent Filet Migon
My Mom & I ordered the Filet Migon and it was excellent! Service was very good. It's a little expensive, but a great place for a special occasion.

The manager went out of his way to accommodate us with a handicap person on Mothers day and that was greatly appreciated for most of our plans did not work out except this dinner and June our waitress was also exceptional.

We visit Cal's whenever we are in town for business. The food is always good and they make excellent drinks! We always request Donna as our server. She is AMAZING! Good service is just as important as the food and Donna goes above and beyond. We will be back!!!!!

Celebration Graduation Lunch
We made a reservation for a party of 8 to celebrate my daughter's graduation. They set us up in a beautiful private area which made the luncheon very intimate and private. The server was exceptional and the food way delicious. We were never rush and she was very attentive to our needs. Lunch menu was fantastic with something for everyone in our group. Going to Cal's made it a very special afternoon.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Interesting menu, good atmosphere
We had sunday brunch at Cal's after a graduation ceremony. The brunch selections were unique and there was also a nice prix fixe menu. There was something for everyone. Fresh yeast rolls, good bloody mary, bellini and mimosa. We were a party of eight in a nice side room switch one other small group which was perfect. Our server was a little clumsy with drinks but she was pleasant and attentive.

I'm always a fan of Cals however I'm not much os a fan of price-fix menu on weekends.
Food is very good but I enjoy Cals regular menu.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I just love going to Cal's... I've done special occasions as well as casual nights with friends... always a fantastic meal!

Last Minute Plans
I picked this place for a last minute celebration with my BF and it was a great choice! The food was excellent with a variety of menu items, the oysters were to die for, and my fish was cooked perfect! I have already made reservations to return:) Don't miss this place!

Good food and service
My husband and I went to Cals with another couple for the first time after a recommendation from other friends. We were pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the food, the great service and the nice atmosphere. We will go back, and recommend to our friends.

Wonderful Fathers Day Experience
I brought my husband there on Sunday for Father's Day and we totally enjoyed it! We were pleasantly surprised to find that they were running their normal Sunday special of the 4-course prix fixe dinner. What a deal! The food was delicious, and though very busy for the holiday, the service was still terrific!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were with a large group. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The table was ready when we arrived and the food was served in a timely manner.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cal's is great. My godchild & I went there for the Lobster Special that is offered thru September. Mussels were plenty & delicious. Lobster was tender & sweet, along with the baked potato, coleslaw & even dessert. We were both very happy. A relaxed dining experience with excellent food. Our waitress was friendly & courteous.

Our visit to Cal's
Overall, our visit to Cal's was very good. My only complaint was that my NY strip was a bit tough in spots, something I haven't encountered with their steaks before. The service was excellent.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice night out
Food and service were both fantastic! Noise level from the bar was quite loud and was tough to hear my daughter (we sat in a booth by Kitchen). But noise was not enough to ruin our time. Wait staff was very attentive and I like the way that if our server was busy others pitched in to make sure we had our drinks filled and we were okay.
Quite enjoyable and we will absolutely dine again.

We always have a superb meal at Cals in west springfield when traveling from ny.

Wonderful as always!
Always good, always accommodating, love it! This is my favorite restaurant away from my restaurant! Great job all! You know I'll be back!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll be back.
Received a gift certificate to Cal's from a car dealer after buying a new car and having some "issues." We had never been to Cal's (we're from CT and it's probably 25 minutes from our home) but were glad to try a new eatery. Very pleased. It happened to be a Monday so two of us ordered from the "Prix Fixe" menu available Sunday and Monday, with a 4-course meal for under 22 dollars. Excellent appetizers with very fresh ingredients (bruschetta and buffala mozzerella fritti.) Salads were crisp and not wet. Soup (roasted tomato) also very good. Our other two ordered stone pies which were excellent...thin crusts and again very fresh and colorful ingredients. My son had chicken marsala..excellent. I had redfish nouvelle..delicious.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great but didn't like that they put us in a small area for 12 people. It was cramped and very warm. There didn't appear to be any A/C ducts so it was slightly uncomfortable. I would have rather been in the main restaurant against a back wall at one long rectangle table and not at a round table with two square tables at the end. Awkward seating. But again, the food was and always is great!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went to Cal's to celebrate my wife's birthday with two older kids on a Sunday evening. We ordered off the price fixe menu.....very good food at a reasonable prices. My daughter (14) enjoyed a personal pizza. Chicked marsala for me....very good and not bathed in mushrooms like some places do. THis place is an oasis on Riverdale Rd (which is a chain restaraunt haven...eeww). We will definitely be back to Cal's. Service was attentive and not smothering

Cal's Wood Fired Bar & Grill
Food was eclectic and scrumptious. A little noisy, but my group of four were all very pleased.

A favorite spot for dining!
Cozy with an energetic atmosphere.
The Ctr.-Cut Prime Pork chop was delicious, as always. One person really enjoyed the blackened Salmon Filet. Two of us enjoyed the Chicken Francaise. Good flavor but a bit on the tough side. We had expected smaller breast meat and more easy to cut.
Service was timely and very accommodating.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cal's was amazing! I'm happy we made a reservation because the place was hoppin'. The wait staff were friendly and on top of everything. We had coconut shrimp for an app which we so big and yummy. Salad came next which was crisp, fresh, and had flavorful dressing. I had stuffed shrimp with the signature seafood stuffing. They were sooo tasty. My boyfriend got pasta with chicken and sausage that was very good too. It's a little pricey over all, but we will definitely be returning.

Sunday at Cal's
Good night for prix fixe. Consistently positive experience. Food is great as is service.

Excellent Food and Service
I think the food is a bit pricey for the area and portion size. However, the food is excellent and the service was good.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
great find amid chain restaurants
we were looking for a restaurant on a friday night in the holyoke area that:
- open late
- not a chain
this was great choice.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Calamari and the Chowder - Great!
The calamari appetizer was excellent, and the clam chowder very good. The regular portions are substantial. The caesar salad was good, if a bit on the vinegary side, with some nice little slices of parmesan; no anchovies were available.
The Sunday & Monday Prix Fixe dinner option is nice, with smaller portions for each of the four courses: appetizer, soup/salad, entree, and dessert. Baked stuffed shrimp was good, and the zucchini/yellow squash side was nicely cooked and seasoned. They will give you the dessert to go. Avoid the "Baked" Potato as an alternative side: it was so water-logged it was very unpleasant; no idea how they cook it.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great night out
Went out with some friends we hadn't seen in a while. We were seated in a back booth immediately. It was quiet enough to enjoy our discussions and the ambience is very comfortable. Our server was very attentive and our friends had dietary restrictions that were honored. All the food was fresh and well prepared and the fixed price dinner was a bargain.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I have been going to Cal's for the past 5 years when attending an expo at the Big E. Every year they are able to accommodate our large group with great food and great service. The mussels appetizer is to die for, So good. I am looking forward to returning again next year.I wish they were closer than a 3 1/2 drive.

We had a pleasant visit to Cal's. The restaurant was very busy with a 45 minute wait so appreciated having an Open Table reservation. The food was very good and pace of meal was excellent. Service was very good.

Consistently Great Dining
I get to Cals a few times per year and it continues to not dissappoint. Our latest experience was excellent. The red snapper is my favorite always cooked to perfection. Other entrees we tried were pork loin wrapped in bacon and swordfish special. All meals were delicious. Service attentive and drinks were very good. We will be back more often.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Girls night out !
got the table I wanted...the waitress was not getting frustrated by us taking our time :)
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great as always
The food at Cal's is always perfectly prepared. The only issue was the service.Our waiter seemed in over his head. Kept giving everyone the wrong food and forgot to bring ordered items like sides and drinks. Great restaurant, great food, but I don't like having to remind waiters what everyone at the table ordered. I have never had this problem at Cal's before so it was surprising. Still loving Cal's though.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
What can I say? Yum, yum yum!
My husband I and were in town for a 3 day weekend dog trial. We ate at Cal's every night and once for lunch. We liked it so much it became our "haunt". They have excellent food and service. Their prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. Very busy atmosphere. I recommend reservations on the weekend.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Deal & Delicious
On Sundays and Mondays there is a $21.95 four course prix fixe that can't be beat. The choices are numerous and the quality and amount of food is definitely above average. We had chicken wings, calamari, caesar salads, steak au poivre, fried seafood platter, apple strudel and chocolate mousse cake.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great selections including traditional Turkey Dinner which was excellent. I had the scallops and my husband had the red fish also excelllent. The waiters went out of their way to provide a great experience including seating for my Mom who uses a walker. We will probably return for Christmas Dinner and also will try the lunch menu very soon.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great , prepared and presented quite nicely, but because it was busy perhaps, the service was slow.
We were not informed of the specials and only found out there were
specials when we overheard our server informing another table AFTER a few tables became available.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
A small group of us had an early dinner reservation on a Sunday night. As always, the food and service we're outstanding.
