Fantastic time at Rendezvous in Turners Falls-Family Friendly!!!

  • 1

I just came back from family camping in Western Mass. My family needed good food and easy place to bring toddler in tow. I looked up recommendations on this place and we went there...twice! It will easily become my favorite stopover between Mass Moca or North Hampton. we were there during the day but it seems like it rocks out at night with food and music

It is a quirky hip bar with nice open space and friendly staff. For lunch we had buffalo panini and ham and cheese panini. Toddler snacked on quesadilla (bonus points for easy to handle toddler food!!!). the sandwiches were yummy and reasonably priced but the star of lunch was the to die for potato wedges!!!!! they came with our sandwiches and we fell in love! They are buttery, tasty and perfectly cooked. they are the best unfried potatoes EVER! I could seriously trek back out for more!

The next time we went for brunch with two more families before we headed back to boston. We then got a mix of lunch and brunch. The dumplings with mango dipping sauce-perfect and of course more potatoes with garlic aioli--yum. We then got waffles, chorizo paninis, grilled cheese and lost sailor ipa's. Everything was solid and the total check was easy to handle.

Other bonus points: the bartender put the disney channel on the one tv and the kids were calm (after a weekend of camping we were grateful:) there was also an old school ms pacman for the older kids and plenty of games for them to play with. the kids also got served food quickly and the adults didnt wait that long either.

The place has a nice chill vibe and was so nice to stumble into and so easy to get to when on rt 2.

  1. Sounds like an interesting place. Can it be real Serrano Ham for that price? And, are you related to the fluffernutter panini on the menu?
