“This is our favorite restaurant! Get there early, 5pm, or arrive later, because you can be waiting up to an hour for a table, but it’s worth it. The food is amazingly delicious and the service is the best. ”

“This is a great little pub that has fresh, seasonable, mostly organic-focused food and a nice selection of their own beers. It has a nice vibe, casual and I’m serious when I say I have never had a bad meal there! I have been there (not kidding) over a hundred times and still enjoy going. Very reasonable prices.”

“Incredible food, cocktails and atmosphere, the Alva Stone is tucked away in the historic Bookmill, where you can dine by a waterfall and enjoy a truly delcious meal. Go for a stroll around the Bookmill, grab a coffee or beer at Lady Killgrew's, then head to the Alva Stone for a lovely dinner. This is one of our favorite places in the region, Alva Stone at the Bookmill in Montague is only a 20 min (scenic) drive away, along lovely country roads. ”
