    The menu has good variety. Salmon always is excellent. Beware that the 'thick' bacon in the BLT is more like pork belly. Delicious, but impossible to bite through in a sandwich.

    Such a charming restaurant with old colonial feel. The ambiance was beautiful with the table setting first rate. Menu selection spot on and prices reasonable considering you’re eating at an upscale Inn in the middle of the Berkshire’s. Service was outstanding and a special shot out to our server Dorothy. Definitely would go back and if you have time at the end of the dinner go downstairs to the Lion’s Den for a night cap. Overall an outstanding dining experience!

    Without a doubt one of the best burgers I have ever had. The fries were great but the burger stole the show. Dessert was good, we split a chocolate cake with ice cream and espresso to pour on top of it. MMMMMMMM

    The Red Lion Inn was a premier place to eat in Berkshire County when the Fitzpatricks were alive, but times change. Now it’s fine, still a lovely setting with great service, but not the superb food we remember.

    I had lived in the area my entire life and had never been but decided to take my wife for her birthday. Walking in it felt like a pleasant step back in time. Fireplace roaring and a nice lobby leading into a large dining area. Staff was friendly and the food was amazing. We'll definitely be back.

    Truly great menu and excellent service. The only negative comment was that the apple pie for dessert, while warm and tasty on the outside, was still cold on the inside. Other than that, we had a great lunch and experience at the Red Lion.

    We had a wonderful experience at the restaurant. As hotel guests, we spent a delightful hour in front of the fireplace in the lobby, prior to our reservation time. John, the host, was professional, friendly and very helpful. He was able to seat us a bit earlier than our reservation. Our server, Kathy, was efficient, attentive, and friendly. The clam chowder was excellent: think and delicious. The Caesar salad had just the right amount of dressing. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the bouillabaisse. Cod was fresh, but not my favorite part of the meal. I'm glad I saved room for dessert. The brown sugar cake with coffee ice cream and a sauce was sublime. Thanks for making our evening so special. Happy 2023 to the restaurant staff.

    It really is a nice place to have a relaxing dinner where the service is good and the ambiance is lovely. We both had the turkey entree and was okay. The turkey was a little fatty which I have not experienced with turkey before and my potatoes and stuffing were cold. The dessert, brown sugar cake was not good. It is a very nice historical setting but the food could be better.

    My husband and I went to the Red Lion Inn on NYE and had dinner in the dining room. It was our first time and the ambiance when we arrived in the main waiting area was awesome for NYE! The live band playing music was so upbeat and made the evening. We were able to walk around and see the Inn while having a cocktail. Exploring the different rooms and eclectic decor was very nice. We enjoyed the NYE fixed menu and our service from our waiter, Matt, was perfect! He was so nice. Our drinks were delicious too! It really was a nice way to spend NYE away from home. We would definitely do it again!

    Two items on the menu were not available. I would have liked one of them. No roll with salad. Was offered rolls after salad was eaten. Wife’s sweet potatoes were undercooked. My meal was very good but way overpriced. Wine and alcoholic beverages were overpriced.

    I was last at the Red Lion for dinner just before the pandemic, and it was a huge disappointment. It had been a go-to for us for years. Decided to give it a shot for lunch yesterday. Wow, what an improvement! Excellent service, and the food was outstanding - crisp wedge salad, savory and substantial chicken pot pie, moist warm brown sugar cake. Glad it's back to its old standard of excellence.
