20 RR Public House has a very unique menu covering all price ranges. I had a burger with blue cheese and mushrooms, my husband had the chicken wings. Both were excellent! Great friendly service in a pleasant atmosphere. I def recommend this place!

Stopped here after walking Housatonic Riverwalk. Ordered the poutine which was the best I ever had. The fries were fresh, crisp and well seasoned, the Guiness gravy was excellent, just the right consistency, not too thick, neither soupy and excellent flavor, lots of cheddar cheese curds. The helping was more than generous The waitstaff was friendly. Service was speedy and... More

Staff was pleasant and seated us right away great atmosphere. My wife and I enjoyed The Salmon and a Burger with fresh cut Fries. Finished off with Mango sorbet and black raspberry ice cream!

My husband and I like to order appetizers and salads and share them for a light meal. We ordered the Garlic Plate, The Goat Cheese and Beet Salad, The Tempeh with buffalo wing sauce but the Shirachi flavour and a side of french fries. OMG....we were soooo happy with everything that came to the table. The salad was fresh and... More

My mother, husband, and I stopped here for lunch while we were exploring the area. We ordered the poutine as an appetizer, and it was amazing; however, our entrees were not impressive at all. My mother and I both ordered the lobster rolls, and the herbs in the lobster salad were far too heavy. Neither of us could even taste... More

I stopped in while exploring during the late afternoon and after a few minutes decided we would come back for dinner. Great setting on a charming side street, and a dedicated manager with lots of restaurant experience. It may be a "pub" but has a nice selection of wines by the glass, ask for recommendations. Food is high end pub... More

The missus and be were in Great Barrington running errands when we decided to pop in somewhere for a late lunch. Never having been in 20 Railroad Public House, we decided to give them a try. The interior was dark and cool, with lots of dark wood. A welcome relief on a hot day. There were few diners, and a... More

We were here within the first month of their opening. We had a great time so we decided to return. We were in the mood for a burger for lunch. The burgers were cooked as asked and they were fantastic. The fries were also excellent. We did not get any appetizers. But we saw a plate of wings go by... More

20 railroad public house is a nice place for lunch or dinner. They have salads sandwiches and burgers. For dinner they have a nice selection of specials. And their ingredients are all sourced from local farms. Being a public house means they have a full bar. The service was good for a Saturday night. Go and enjoy the food.
