For almost 40 years Fitzwilly’s has been the go-to downtown Northampton destination for quality food and great service offered at moderate prices and in such a comfortable and friendly environment that you’ll think you never really left home.  Customers who frequent Fitzwilly’s are seldom referred to as “customers” very long.  Once they’ve visited this establishment a time or two and experience the real life “Cheers “ atmosphere within its walls, they too will quickly become better known as just good FRIENDS!​

Located on a side street only a couple blocks from downtown is one of Northampton's oldest  and most well known landmark restaurants.  Joe's Cafe' has been located at the same spot and in the same building for well over 70 years.  For decades generations of native Northampton residents have flocked to Joe's to devour this restaurant's incredible tasting thin crust pizza and other Italian dish delights as often as possible.  However, Joe's Cafe" is no longer that secret little old style Italian eatery as the word has spread far and wide about this legendary culinary gem.  You'll just as likely to be seated next to some frequent customers from New Jersey that stops by on their way to or from a Vermont ski destination as you will be seated next to a local regular.  People who go here once return here over and over again.  Joe's Cafe' is one of the main reasons great Italian food seems so addictive.  In 1974, Gerry Rainville and Jack Sullivan bought the café from brothers Joe and Tony Caruso. The two enjoyed a successful partnership for 37 years and when Gerry retired in 2011, Jack teamed up with his daughter, Meaghan, to carry on the tradition of Joe's Café: good food and fine service in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere.  Be sure to say hello to them when you stop by.

Johnny’s Bar and Grille is a warm and lively restaurant and bar where people can be themselves and relax in a comfortable setting. Situated in the town of South Hadley, MA across from Mt Holyoke College, Johnny’s offers some picturesque views and plenty of outdoor seating.

Johnny’s was named after Johnny Yee of the iconic Hu Ke Lau Restaurant, established in 1965.  Johnny was a legendary restaurateur who carved out a name for himself in the restaurant industry.

Using the term "great tasting fresh seafood served at reasonable prices" may almost seem like a contradiction in terms to most folks, especially if they've never dined at Webster's Seafood Restaurant.
But to those of us who have dined here we know those comments are spot on!  This 3rd generation eatery is one of the most popular spots in the Valley in which to grab a quick lunch or dinner consisting of superb seafood cooked with the skill of any high profile New York restaurant.  Their family style service helps save YOU a few bucks while assuring all patrons a piping HOT meal right out of the kitchen.

The "Toasted Owl Tavern" probably doesn't even realize it, but they offer an atmosphere and ambiance resembling only that of which you’d find in many of the better pubs and taverns found scattered all throughout Europe.  It's easy to experience this special charm the moment you walk through the door of this cleverly decorated establishment.   You'll quickly notice its large picturesque front window that subtly captures all the hustle and bustle of busy downtown Northampton, while allowing you an opportunity to just sit, relax and enjoy your favorite beverage or tasty selection from their huge light fare menu.

The White Hut is another one of those landmark dining spots that is known far and wide for it's absolutely fantastic food.  Although not a huge menu to chose from, The White Hut's award winning  hamburgers and hot dogs have caused many a driver to go completely out of their way just to sink their teeth into one of  their culinary gems.   And now with a second location in Amherst, those folks living further up the Valley can enjoy the same great tasting  burgers and dogs that their faithful customers in West Springfield and all over Hampden County have been feasting on for well over 60 years.  Just check on their logo to the left.  Bet you can't look at the homepage without your mouth beginning to water.   You'll be hearing a lot about the White Hut this season as they'll be sponsoring many prizes during this year's Safari Club Adventures.

The best way to describe Pics Pub is through the words of it's customers we've picked up in reviews online.  Who could possibly know more about this popular and friendly destination.  So, here's what a few have to say:  "Fantastic pub and restaurant. The owner, Pic, is a fantastic guy and a even better pizza maker".

"This has been Pics Pub for a year. Good selection on tap and good food. Nice ambiance, friendly owner and barkeeper, friendly regulars.  Nice little pub."

"Great neighborhood pub. Friendly, nice ambiance. Lots of room for the gathering of 30 people that I was with.  Many large flat screen TVs around the bar for excellent sports viewing. I didn't try the food but there was a big selection and the pizza looked delicious".
