Food was okay at best - my son was served the buffalo chicken dish and even after mentioning he had a shellfish allergy he found lobster. Good job! Luckily he saw it before he ate.

Good food, friendly service despite us having a tremendous group. While things took a while (what do you expect when you have 25 people in your group) the food arrived hot, the staff kept patient and friendly. They have a side room they gave us all to ourselves (with the reservation).

Food is terrible, and as everyone else says it is overpriced. If you want to save yourself some money and disappointment, drive into town, or just down the block. It really is just convenient for the people that are staying at the lodge and that about sums it up.

I had the blacked salmon (perfect! ) over the Harvard salad entree - very good and plentiful. Pom-akazi drink (good). Hazelnut drink (good). He got the candied bacon burger (ok). Too stuffed for dessert, but very interested in the Apple crisp and Brownie sundae. Would come again if staying at the resort.

My husband and I were staying at the Jiminy Peak resort and were extremely excited to find a brewery within walking distance of where we were staying. Unfortunately, it was nothing like what we imagined. The restaurant was part of a hotel and was definitely not the pub/tavern atmosphere that we were excited for. The food was VERY expensive and...

We visited the first night of our vacation. Having arrived late in the day and not knowing the area this was close by and being a chain restaurant we figured it was probably OK. Located in the Jiminy peak resort it is actually on the 3rd floor of the hotel. We did not have reservations but there were very few... More

If you are staying at Jiminy Peak Resort, you don't have much to choose from for dining. There is Powder Hounds and John Harvards. Food was OK. Service was a little haphazard. Beer was OK (but not worth going back for).

My husband and I are staying in The Berkshires at the Vacation village and chose this place for dinner, it was a bit odd to go to the third floor for a restaurant, and our server was a bit arrogant she wasn't very busy but didn't even ask if I wanted another drink, our dinner was good we ordered the...

place was not crowded, but the wait staff and cook still couldn't get the drinks or food right. Over cooked food! Wrong drinks. Long wait!
