Dining at The Old Inn on the Green is an extraordinary experience: fine wine, great food, the dining room illuminated by candles, the murmur of conversation from the other room. As Chef and Owner, Peter Platt is always firmly in charge, working to create innovative and memorable meals that are an event unto themselves. Over the past several years, the Old Inn has developed the tradition of serving a Prix Fixe menu - each Saturday evening a different four-course meal is prepared, and guests are offered a choice of two main courses as well as a choice of dessert. On other nights, the Inn offers a well rounded menu of a la carte items, with specials which change daily. The wine list is graced with a array of thoughtfully selected estate bottled wines from France, California and Italy. The dining rooms are lit entirely by candlelight and there are fireplaces in each room. Comfortably worn windsor chairs and mahogany tavern tables furnish the dining rooms.

This was our first time here and we chose the Inn because of the reviews . We were not disappointed. The food was excellent! There was a wedding rehearsal dinner in the next room and the tables were full. Our server was a little on edge, but she mellowed as the evening went on.
Cocktails and appetizers were quickly served and the foie gras, diver scallops, beets and cheese were all amazing. It was a nice touch that the chef sent out a "tasting plate" of items before the apps.
Our meals arrived and all of us were impressed with the presentation of the plates of food. The duck, lamb, pasta and crispy salmon were all incredible! It seems rare that four diners can all agree that the entire meal was fabulous! Highly recommended!

Absolutely amazing experience. We were given a wonderful large table for two, and felt that we had traveled back in time! Our meal was delicious and relaxed and elegant. Our server had perfect timing. In short, it was a memorable time and we would highly recommend a visit to this Historic Old Inn!

A more magical dining room cannot be imagined: entirely candle lit, old architectural details perfectly preserved, as quiet as if you're in a previous century. The staff are gentle and friendly, and the food is good. The wine list is exceptional, with very fine wines at high prices but also excellent bottles reasonably priced. I've been there about five times, including once overnight - also lovely, and there's nothing like it anywhere else: a unique experience worth the drive through gorgeous New England villages, woods and fields back through time.

The Old Inn has always been our go to choice for special occasions...birthday, anniversaries etc. This time I went with a friend because I didn’t feel like cooking but didn’t want to drive to far...as always the meal was scrumptious and the service impeccable but since it was a weeknight casual outing we stuck to the price fixe menu and the overall cost was very very reasonable! I will make an effort to go here more not just for special occasions or showing off the best of Berkshires to friends

The food and dining rooms are fantastic. I wish they would play soft music and make it a little brighter. If that light the fireplaces once it gets cold, it may be the coziest restaurant around. Would go back.

Fantastic. We had one welcome menu and two a la carte. All were excellent, perfectly prepared on Thursday night with a late 8:00 start. Atmospheric as promised. Very special evening. Of many epicurean meals in a week in the Berkshires, this was most memorable

On a warm, summer evening—en route from Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival to the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival—I stopped at the lovely Old Inn on the Green. I ordered from the Saturday Prix Fixe menu, starting with the exceptional Warm Vermont Bijou Chèvre on Toasted Brioche, followed by the Grilled Beef Tenderloin, and the Lemon Creme Tartlet (a cloud from heaven) for dessert, all for an extremely reasonable $78. As they've preserved the Inn's many historic qualities, there's no electric lighting in the dining room—it's entirely candle-lit, adding to the cozy ambiance. My server Ian was knowledgable, efficient, and attentive, and ensured my dining experience was exceptional.

We were really looking forward to our dinner at TOIOTG but overall were disappointed by the service, crowded dining room, and experience. The food was exceptional for 3 of 4 of us. One of our party was a vegetarian and when she asked the server for vegetarian options, she was told that the pasta was the only choice. When questioned, she admitted that the risotto could be done without the lobster but she did not offer any other options. We are not particularly annoying diners or ask for unusual levels of service but our waitress provided the level of service we would have expected in one of the local diners. The wait between the order for dessert and its arrival was easily 30 - 40 minutes. The waitress did apologize once and say that the kitchen was backed up but one of the adjoining tables that arrived 30 minutes after us and was served their main course significantly after us received their desserts prior to us. We were pleased to see that the restaurant was busy on a Saturday evening but did not expect that the chairs from one table would back into our chairs or that the waitress would keep bumping into one of our parties chairs as she passed. Food was wonderful...the rest was a disappointment.

This was a very special treat. The food was spectacular; the service , outstanding. The acoustics aren’t great if you happen to have a noisy group in your room, but all of that fades away when you relax into the ambiance and the service. Love it there!

The Old Inn on the Green is, in my opinion, the finest restaurant in the lower Berkshires, with a varied menu and a wonderfully authentic Colonial feel. Since the prices are more akin to Manhattan than Great Barrington, I save our trips for special occasions, but never come away disappointed. This time, our group had the duck and the steak, both outstanding. The service is superb, and we stayed for a lovely array of desserts as the last remaining diners that night. We will certainly return for our next special occasion.

Tasting menu was awesome — and not one where you go home hungry! Food came out perfectly timed. Most tender lamb ever. Sensational scallop. Special touches on everything. Super romantic ambience. Staff was above and beyond. It was snowing and James actually swept the path in front of me going out to my car. Really a wonderful time.

Three years ago our children gifted us an evening at the Inn on the Green for our 35th anniversary, with limo transportation and Crystal champagne included. It was such fun that we decided to repeat the experience each year. We have not been disappointed! In front of a low fire we dined on file bras, lobster risotto, lamb and duck, all of which was superb. Add in the amuse bouche, affogatto, and cheese plate and the entire experience, as ever, was charming and delicious!
