Lee/Lennox/Becket/Chester/Otis Recommendations

Wanting to start a thread on the better dining experiences in the towns of Lee/Lennox/Becket/Chester/Otis. I tend to like pub-style, casual places with a varied menu, but do enjoy the occcasional "night out" with something higher up the chain. I like the Pioneer Grill a lot, when it is open, and aside from that I have had a hard time finding places I look forward to going. Went to the Locker Room Sports Bar once and the food was OK, went to Salmon Run Fish House -had high hopes dashed by so-so service and food, though I read a lot of favorable reviews about their food and service so maybe it's just me? The Arizona Pizza place is OK, better than a TGIF or Ruby Tuesdays but maybe not by much. Didn't see anythign in Otis and the places in Lennox seem uninviting - am I missing some jewel? So, please use this thread to introduce _your_ experiences in the area. I would love to hear about options that do not involve driving 40 minutes into Great Barrington, or into Pittsfield.

    In Lee the best restaurant is Chez Nous but that is not really casual. In Lenox Nudel can be very good and is different from the usual. Otis/Becket not much out there although there is always Dream Away Lodge in Becket, food is pretty good but it's more about the atmosphere.

    Don't know where you're starting from but if you are in Lee Stockbridge/W. Stockbridge is only 5-10 minutes away with some more options and even G. Barrington is really only 15-20 minutes from Lee not 40.

      Dreamaway Lodge in Becket; food good, not great, but fun atmosphere and live music.

      I like Frankie's in Lenox for Italian food; good food, carefully but not fussily prepared.

        I, too, am very fond of Frankie's, my favorite place in Lenox. If you are willing to travel to GB, I really like Route 7 Grill, a farm-to-table place on Main Street, just outside of town. I also like Chez Nous in Lee, a step up but not all that fancy.
