We came to the Knox for food and to listen to the band on Saturday night. The band was clearly playing for a larger venue. They had the sound system way to loud for a small room. You couldn’t have a conversation and it disrupted the meal. We had the pizza which was under cooked. The menus doesn’t offer much for non meat eaters but for simple bar food it’s not to bad. Please just try and have the bands play at a moderate sound level.

The inn is a nice place for a meal. Nothing too upscale, but very pleasant with good food, except for their pizza!! Food and service 4 stars. The rating of 2 stars is for the following issue: We have been there several times and tried going for dinner and dance on Friday night!!The band was so loud conversation was impossible and dancing was out of the question. Most of the people with us said their ears actually hurt from how loud music was and the pain continued for a while even after leaving! A couple of employees I talked to agreed the music was too loud! Where is the owner? Didn’t he hire Legal Tender - tune down the volume!!

I had a great meal at the Knox Trail Inn ... I always liked the place, but I see some improvements. I like the wide lay out, with everyone looking onto the performance space. I had the prime rib
and it was excellent. The place to be, if you happen to be in Otis!

My husband and I had dinner at the Knox Trail Inn in Otis, Massachusetts on Saturday, May 19, 2018 and on Friday, May 25, 2018, while vacationing at Otis Reservoir. The restaurant was located very convenient to Otis Reservoir, which was quite nice. We enjoyed our meals both times we dined at this restaurant. The food was high quality, nicely prepared and delicious. The portions were quite generous and the service was very good. Our entrees included New York Strip Steak, Pork Cops and Hamburgers. The beer was also reasonably priced. In addition, the atmosphere was very relaxing with comfortable seating. We recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back again when we are in the area.

The Knox Trail Inn came highly recommended by a friend since this restaurant has been recently renovated and reopened under new management. We stopped for lunch and were amazed at the size of the interior with a large room and the bar area at the far side and a separate dining room. It appeared newly remodeled and very clean.

We sat in the bar area where the bartender welcomed us and made us feel at home. She was very cheery and helpful with all of our questions. We enjoyed a delicious lunch that consisted of a grilled chicken sandwich, chili and then finished with their very huge (homemade potato chip) nachos! Wow....it was all wonderful.

There was live music later in the evening and the patrons were all friendly and welcoming. We were told to return for dinner and to participate in a Horseshoe Tournament on Saturday, May 5th with all proceeds going to Ed & Earnie's hometown First Responders. Lots of horseshoe pits in the back lawn. We would definitely return.
