All the dining variety you could need during a Berkshires vacation is served at two restaurants – one of them a Colonial-style tavern – at the Williams Inn on the Williams College campus. Start the day with a hearty appetite at the Continental breakfast in the main dining room. You may wish to close out a day of play or exploration in the Berkshire Mountains with dinner and drinks at the tavern. New England classics like pot roast and pan-seared Atlantic salmon and updated favorites are on the menu. Children traveling on a family vacation will find their own menu, including healthy side dishes to please Mom. Service is exception but dining is informal; you don’t need to dress up or fear an evening of stifling the kids.
