Other than the Inn, can anyone suggest a more moderate restaurant for a family with 2 teenage boys?
If you just head south a bit on Rt.91 into Northampton or Amherst there are plenty of choices. Downtown Northampton has lots of pizza, pubs, Mexican, etc. Downtown Amherst has a Bertuccis and lots of other local restaurants. Both are college towns so prices are reasonable at the vast majority.
5 miles north of Deerfield is Greenfield, where there are many choices. Hope and Olive [www.hopeandolive.com] has good food in a nice setting; popular among the prep school families. Although, it tends to get real busy. We also like the Greenfield Grill [thegreenfieldgrille.com]; basic, a table is almost always available due to the restaurant's size, and popular with the local families.
Another option: Green Fields Market. A small organic grocery [kind of like a mini WholeFoods]. They have a hot buffet and substantial ala carte menu.
thank you.. helpful for our next visit...
