Lunch at the Morgan House Inn in Lee, MA

0505141429aIn an old inn sitting right on the main street through Lee, Massachusetts is the tavern at Morgan House Inn. It’s small, with four or so tables in the front enclosed porch, as well as a few in the bar area. The bar only seats 8-10. There is a much larger area that they open for dinner. We had calamari, fried perfectly,

was really an excellent salad.  This was a very good lunch.  We would certainly come back here, and probably will next time we drive by on our way to Albany or Cooperstown.  Built in 1853, the inn maintains many great original details.

We liked the tavern at the Morgan House Inn.  It serves good food in a cozy environment.  While we can’t comment on dinner,  based on lunch it can’t be bad.

Morgan House Inn is a good option for a casual lunch if you’re on the Mass Pike near Lee at lunchtime.  It’s also an inn, so they offer rooms if you’re heading out to Tanglewood or the museums in Lenox and Stockbridge.
