Johnny's Bar and Grill

Reviewed By David P - Boston, Massachusetts

Absolutely and plainly bad. Food is not good, neither is the service. Waitstaff was straight up rude when we arrived, and seemed almost angry during ordering. Took a half hour even for appetizers to come out, with no explanation. The food itself also wasn't good. Medium-well burger was hockey puck dry, beef stew was served half-spilled out of the bowl, fries were both overcooked AND cold, which actually takes some skill to even achieve. Absolutely no reason to come here.

The Munich Haus Restaurant

Reviewed By Donna S - Agawam, Massachusetts

Friends invited us out for dinner at the Munich Haus. I had been there before, was familiar with the cuisine, and couldn't wait for an enjoyable experience. We were not disappointed.

Love the atmosphere, the friendly waitstaff, the fabulous ambiance, and of course the delicious food and drink.

I had a side salad, the scallops and spaetzle as my side. Wonderful meal. Everyone else enjoyed their meals and beers.

Can't wait to go back!

Donut Dip Incorporated

Reviewed By michaelkU4551EN

Donut Dip (with locations in West Springfield and East Longmeadow) is a great place to get real hand-made donuts. They often feature seasonal varieties, like Pumpkin donuts in the Fall. Coffee is great here, and this is a popular spot with both locals and tourists passing by.

Delaney’s Grill

Delaney's Grill is the place you go for steak in Western Massachusetts. Why? Because we are the best steakhouse in the region. We serve 100% Black Angus beef from cattle raised on small farms and fed an all-vegetarian diet to promote superior marbling and outstanding flavor. Our selection of cuts includes something for every steak lover, including an 8-ounce filet mignon, a 16-ounce Delmonico rib eye and a 12-ounce cut of our delicious roast prime rib. For the members of your party who aren't in a mood for steak, we offer a great selection of fish, pork, chicken, gluten free and vegetarian options. And our appetizers, including asparagus fries, perfectly fried calamari, and family style chop-chop salad never fail to delight. Don't forget about our infamous popovers!

My husband and I went with our friends to celebrate the holidays. We were seated immediately and had just "ok" service. The prices of the food was high and I felt the food was just ordinary, not spectacular as expected. My husband's lamb was undercooked and I had ask for salt and pepper for the table and water refills. Drinks were 12.00 a piece.

The décor is beautiful and very clean.

I will not go back.

Frontera Grill

Located In The Old Blue Sky Diner Location

Reviewed By Shamachi - Massachusetts

I absolutely adore everything about this restaurant. From the food, choices on the menu, the drinks and décor, it is amazing and very, very Mexican. Even a live mariachi band plays with some musicians and vocalists with some really great pipes! It is cool that they come around to play music for everyone, but in a small restaurant, it is so loud that you cannot hear a table conversation. I would suggest making a stage for them and allowing people to come up to them to hear the music and perhaps dance. The food is a tad pricey, but WELL worth it. It seems homemade and you get to take home seconds. Try the guacamole that is prepared tableside and order it with "toda"! Great job Frontera!!

The Mick

The Mick is the best place in the Valley to get together with friends, listen to live music and have a drink and a bite to eat. Come in Tuesday for Burger Night and see why The Mick has Western Massachusetts' perfect burger. Wednesday's Red, White and Brew special is you perfect mid-week pizza and beer fix. And every Thursday, our Mickaroni menu features all of you Italian favorites. Like incredible fish? Kick off the weekend with Thank Cod It's Friday (T.C.I.F), featuring the freshest, tastiest seafood around. We generally keep it casual in here, but Sunday nights can get a little heated with Western Mass's top Trivia Night. Bring your friends.

This bar restaurant located within in the Delaney house is ideal spot for a meal. We have been on a couple of Sunday nights where they have a trivia night going on. The MC does a nice job with the trivia contest without going overboard....MoreThank you for taking the time to review, We are happy to hear that you enjoy The Mick!

Bernie's Dining Depot

Reviewed By PaulinesChoice - Nashua, New Hampshire

Went 1:30 hour to closing time on a weekday night. Waitress was very nice and the place looked interesting and prices weren't bad. My friend loved the seafood plate. Unfortunately the restaurant was very dirty from carpet to walls and the chairs were so hard to maneuver. There was fruit flies around and my food a pot roast, was extremely dry. (They were out of their famous steak as advertised on menu). Not sure I would go back.

Cracker Barrel

Reviewed By 8BaByCaKeS8 - Bay Area Houston, Texas

It's always nice to be able to dine at at Cracker Barrel while traveling, because we're from the south. This experience was fantastic, our waitress was amazing. From personality to ordering. She also brought everything we asked for without having to be reminded. The $20 tip was more than deserved, made the end to a difficult day extremely relaxing. Would definitely go back:)

Great meal whether you come for breakfast or lunch. Mrs. Mitchell (Orla) is there to greet as well serve you. The meals are well-priced and the servings are plenty! Locals are always found visiting and enjoying the camaraderie of friends.
