The long awaited Cinder Bar Cross Keys location opened just over a month ago, and across the board patrons are Wow’d by the experience.  Unlike the national chain eateries along Berlin Cross-Keys Road, Cinder Bar promotes an experience where effort is put into making every aspect of the experience fresh, local and hand crafted.

Learning Center Day Care is the building going up behind the new Cinder Bar – Cross Keys, according to town Planning Board documents and their 2018 Town Fact Sheet.

The Cinder Bar – Cross Keys Facebook page made the official announcement this morning… they set an opening date for December 16th!  They have also been posting interior photos on the page, and the place looks AMAZING!   They really do have a great design team for the restaurants… hitting home runs in creating an “upscale casual” experience.

Williamstown is incredibly excited about Grindstone Restaurant opening on Main Street (this past weekend). This BYOB features artisan wood fired pizza and tapas-style appetizers. No individual food items here… it’s all about sharing! They are located across from 13th Child Brewery and a block from The Grand Theater. With these three businesses pulling in the people, Main Street is finally living up to it’s name! Owned by a Williamstown family… be sure to support local businesses. Closed Monday and Tuesday, so make plans for the rest of the week. See article for more details!
