Milford
About the restaurant
The Rail Trail Flatbread Co., celebrated its grand opening on 12/12/23, marking not only a milestone in Milford's downtown revitalization but also a nod to the original Hudson location's success. Built in a meticulously renovated former bank that features a spacious restaurant and bar, outdoor patio, and upstairs events space, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere.

The Milford location reflects a two-and-a-half-year renovation effort, preserving historical elements like the century-old clock, vault door, and exposed brick walls. The open dining layout encourages interaction, adorned with family photos for a homey feel.

Though famous for flatbreads, Rail Trail boasts diverse offerings, each component is made in-house. Notable flatbreads include "Fig & Walnut" and "Mexican Street Corn," alongside the popular "Primo Pepperoni." Appetizers like "Hot Tots" and "Sesame Cauliflower" showcase Rail Trail's culinary creativity.

Great atmosphere; good basic American classics; too much to finish if you order the extra $12 two sides ( choice of soup : great New England clam chowder, salad or dessert. I wish we could have packed the extras but we had to travel on. Bartender Jim made excellent drinks, reasonably priced and potent. If we’re in the area, we will return.

The outdoor dining experience at 30 Boltwood is excellent and delightful. Since we are COVID-cautious we do not eat indoors, and having a comfortable, pleasant space outdoors is important to us. The food is quite good, though we were surprised that the kitchen had run out of the makings for eggs florentine by 1230 pm during Sunday brunch. The cheese board is large and varied enough to be a meal of its own, but we had it as an appetizer. My Turkish eggs were good; pleasantly spicy tempered by yogurt with solid chunks of sourdough toast to sop up the yolks.

This was my third visit to Dewey's, the second for brunch. We were a raucous group, and the servers were patient and lovely to us. Trey, the chef, came out personally to say hello and ask how one of the dishes was (and FYI: it was DELICIOUS). If I could eat here every week, I would do so. Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous ambiance.

We always have a great time at the Mercantile. It is where my wife and I had dinner after I proposed so it brings a lot of good memories.

Steak
Holyoke
About the restaurant
Everybody has their own idea about what makes a perfect steak. Yes, it always starts with a great cut of 100% Black Angus beef from cattle raised on small farms and fed an all-vegetarian diet to promote superior marbling and outstanding flavor. But which cut is best, the degree to which a steak is cooked, and what best complements a steak's flavor — well, that's all pretty personal. That's why we at Delaney's Grill and The Mick take the time to talk to every diner.

Beautiful night for dinner and cocktails on the patio with friends! The atmosphere was wonderful, food and drinks delicious and my short rib entree was enough for three people!! Our waiter was attentive and professional and the music/entertainment was awesome!!! I had only written, “Birthday” for occasion on our reservation and our waiter brought over a giant piece of cake to share with a candle and a Happy Birthday sign - unprompted!!! The only annoyance was the little gnat bugs that appeared and wanted to land on the food when the sun went down. Other than that, we can’t wait to go back!!!!

There's a good variety of pub food, with a lot of beers to pick from, several wines, and a bevy of cocktails. The food is good, the service is quick, and the prices are decent.
