Johnny and I sat at the bar which was a treat given Johnny's 11. We ordered classic "purple Pub" wings, the Big Blue burger and a custom burger. I thought the wings were great! And I'm from Wing City. The burgers were great too! Excellent service from Jon. Thank you!!

I love salads and i was pleasantly surprised to find delicious offerings here - unique and fresh! Bad thing - only potato offering is fried, no baked potatoes.

I've reviewed this location many times. It is the only place we eat at for lunch when visiting museums in the vicinity of this location. The quality of the food is great; the service has always been wonderful; and their lunch menu has a good variety of food choices. Our waitress this visit was Ashley and she was just great,... More

Husband and I shared a late lunch. Tried the turkey chili which was on the bland side but was good for no heartburn afterwards and the beef barley which was the soup of the day (also on the bland side). The shared cobb salad with grilled chicken and ranch dressing was nicely chilled and excellent in our estimation. The seasonal... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch at the Purple Pub before visiting the Clark art museum. It couldn't have been better. She had a tasty pesto chicken sandwich and I had a baby kale salad, and our waiter mentioned I could get it with salmon. I'm so glad I did, the salmon was the perfect match to the spicy... More

The Purple Pub has been remodeled completely since its days as the old Spring Street town bar. Now it has great IPA's, multiple TV's, and a nice menu.

Had dinner here on Saturday night. Lucky to get a table at 6:30, but it got quieter by the time we left. Lots of TVs to watch the college football games. Service was very good, prices are reasonable. We shared the "Mount Greylock" fries (french fries with cheese sauce and lots of bacon), I had the Cubano sandwich, my wife... More

Nice pub and nice crowd where you get exactly what you expect in this college town pub near Williams College ein North Adams. Can't wait to go back when it is warmer to enjoy the outdoor seating.

The Purple Pub has been the place to gather in Williamstown since 1973, serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Whether you're looking for traditional pub food or delicious entrees, we have you covered. Patrons can drink and dine at the large mahogany bar or in the comfort of the semi-private dining room. Come watch the game on one of our large screen televisions or enjoy a romantic dinner with someone special. Don't forget to try one of our 14 draft beers (we have bottled beer too), served in a frosted glass.
