What our customers say


The atmosphere at The Federal makes it a great spot to have dinner with friends. The food is delicious and unlike any other cuisine found in the Western MA area!



The Federal is a perfect place to meet family for dinner or friends for a drink. The menu changes seasonally so there is always something new to try which keeps me coming back. Not to mention their risotto balls are legendary!
