Trackside Inn has decent food but I think it is a bit overpriced. It tends to be very crowded and for that reason is very loud. It is more of a Tavern than a restaurant. The bar is a very active place. I know a lot of people who really like it but it's not at the top of my list of places to patronize.
Kinchley's Tavern is most famous for its pizza. It is s very thin crust pizza so it just seems to melt in your mouth. The pizza is not cheap and they are small as pizza goes but they definitly worth an occasional visit. Make sure you bring cash - they do not accept credit cards.

Atkins Farms is more than just a farm stand. They have the usual seasonal fruits and vegetables but also have an excellent bakery, deli and salad bar. It's a great place to grab a quick breakfast or lunch to eat there or take out for a picnic in the beautiful Pioneer Valley.
