About The Berkshire

The Berkshire serves fresh and inventive dishes centered around pork and bacon. In a location heavily populated with chains, this family-owned restaurant serves unique meals from scratch in a casual and trendy environment. While the dishes represent American cuisine--heavy on the pig--

The Berkshire does serve lighter fare as well as vegetarian dishes.
In addition to serving up heaping portions of pig, we also take pride in our creative cocktails. We have a fully stocked bar and draft beers, insuring you will find the perfect drink to accompany your porky dish. The Berkshire hosts weekly drink specials and happy hours, giving you a reason to celebrate any day of the week!

Whether you are hosting an event, or just wanting to celebrate with a group of friends because it's Wednesday and you're craving bacon, stop by The Berkshire and let us show you just how much we love pig!

We went for Valentines Day with a group of friends. This was our first time sat Berkshire and I was intrigued by their menu.
It may have been because of the holiday, but we waited nearly an hour for our food.
I had the pork tenderloin and it was good. The meat wasn’t overdone and the flavour was good. My partner enjoyed the beet salad very much.
Our server was excellent and made sure drinks were always filled.

Tasty food, great bacon and tasty light pancakes. Unlimited Mimosas for $13. I will definitely go back for the stuffed wrapped jalapenos...so delicious. They were out of the avocado toast, no ripe avocado's on hand, so I will go back to try later.

This was my second time dining here and it was delightful. I had the pork tenderloin with pumpkin risotto and it was delicious. The portion was generous and I have a leftover for lunch!

Berkshire is a really nice restaurant for brunch. Has a very creative menu and all the things we ordered. It is noisy but not unbearable. Great location. Free parking. The whole complaint I had was OJ was not fresh squeezed, although priced that way. The green chili was a little too spicy. That should be noted on menu.

Food was very good; Cobb salad had a good quantity of various things, jalapeno poppers were delicious, and sliders (pork, beef) were delicious on fresh rolls and nicely priced. We appreciate that waitress turned down the music so we could hear each other better and have a conversation. Very enjoyable and not crowded for a 1 p.m. lunch. I do recommend this place!

We were a group of five, ordered a couple of appetizers and dinner. Only two in group ordered drinks. When the dinner came four were served and I was left without dinner. Usually when this happens the dinner arrives a minute late, but at The Berkshire I had to finally go up and ask about my meal. The restaurant was not busy, so I question both the kitchen and the server handling the table. It was awful. I was told it would be right out, and it came out after other guests were done eating. It was not cooked through and I had to send it back and instead ordered another app just to get something and not hold up the entire party longer. They were nice but not at all what I'd considered standard good service. Not attentive, not even seeming to know what was going on. The other food was so-so. Nothing great, not bad.

Everyone in our group was able to find something on the menu. Some people wanted a small bite, others seemed to be famished......Everyone left happy with a positive remark about Berkshire. Our server was great- attentive, but not overbearing; helpful, but not pushy and very laid back, allowing us to enjoy our guests. Due to the holiday, the vibe was even more special with the soft glow of the blue lights and animated ice-sickle type lights coming in through the windows. We would all recommend Berkshire!

Pretty good place until you look around at the other choices, then it's the best place within a mile. Great service. Food was too saucy on the appetizer I ordered and the daily special consisted of a fried chicken burger which came with a green salad and dressing. I would order differently next time.

The atmosphere is comfortable and the food is great. Kind of a gourmet spin on classic pub fair. The service was decent. My wife and I made reservations and had a pretty much a hassle free experience which is a big plus at the end of the week for any hard working couple. A nice chill date night with excellent food. I recommend the bacon four ways.

The Berkshire is a pig lovers dream!
Bacon, pork chops, pulled pork, just about anything you could ask for! The beet salad was great as well as the English pea risotto.
One of their appetizers was bacon wrapped bacon-- how can you go wrong with that?

The waitstaff were outstanding, the ambiance exceptional and the quality and variety of the meals wonderful. If it weren’t so far away we’d be back in a heartbeat. If you live nearby, don’t miss this place.

The overall product seems to have gone downhill, or we just had bad luck. My wife's breakfast was missing half the ingredients but did include a hair... other than that the host was probably the hardest working. The food runner seemed disinterested in helping customers or servers. He stood staring at another servers tip book for 5 minutes without bothering to help bus the table, or the dirty one next to it. Our server was good, but it was such a slow Sunday that he was waiting on tables on both sides of the restaurant, which slowed him down a bit.

This place is amazing. The bacon wrapped bacon was to die for and the cloudless chocolate cake was great. I had the risotto, and it was cooked to perfection, which not too many places know how to do. Our party has food allergies and I'm gluten free and the server did an amazing job accommodating us. All around great place and the prices were good.

I haven't been to The Berkshire in several years (mostly because I have been out of state), and it was every bit as good as I remembered! Our server, Marissa, was very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. The food was amazing! I had the Pulled Pork Benedict from the brunch menu, and I may be spoiled for any other Benedict, now. The pork was beautifully smoked and just fell apart. One of us had the lox and bagel because she noticed that The Berkshire smokes their own fish, and she said they really knew what they were about. My sister had the Berkshire Benedict which as was also excellent. I'll certainly be back!

We enjoyed this place. We were drawn here by the claim that they do everything-pork. So, of course, we obliged and got a bunch of things pork. The charcouterie board was delicious, the pork wings were good (though not spicy, as warned), great chicharrones, and good fried pickles. Service was OK, although the checking-in frequency could have been better. The biggest issue I had with the whole experience is the price. In our humble opinion, it was a bit too high.

Our group of four showed up at first booking on Saturday morning (9:00 AM) breakfast. While the waitress was attentive much of their focus was aimed at just getting the restaurant ready for customers. Why open if you're not ready to be open. While most of the food my family had was good, Berkshire has fallen into the same scheme as other restaurants in offering a minimal portion and potatoes as filler. Many of the group's plates were picked up with the potatoes untouched. I made the mistake of ordering the cheesy tots with green chili. Even with two eggs on top it was still a carb train wreck as 3/4 of the serving dish was tater tots, most of went back untouched. I know, the dish was called "cheesy tots", I just didn't recognize that at the Berkshire the accent was on "tots".

Iive in the Springs, but decided to take my two bacon loving kids for a pig fest for dinner. The Heritage Bacon 4 ways is delicious. I thought the pork chop was cooked just right, but my favorite thing was the Bread Pudding with crumbled bacon... Mmmmmm, so good! Miles, the server, was a delight as well.
