Restaurants in Berlin

Whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it in Berlin. Some restaurants, like the Globe, recently purchased by Burley Oak Brewing and located in a 100-year-old building in historic Berlin, seem to have been around forever – and for good reason. At Rayne’s Reef Soda Fountain & Grill you can step back in time with a classic burger and milkshake. Other restaurants, like the relatively new Sterling Tavern and Boxcar on Main,  have only recently added new flavor to Main Street’s lineup and are keeping the community on its toes.

Berlin Events

There are many events throughout the year that attract thousands

ike many other towns, Berlin hosts its share of movie nights, fireworks and concerts in the park – but then there are other events that are totally, uniquely, sometimes weirdly, Berlin. Take, for example, the Bathtub Races, where local businesses and competitors have been turning ordinary “tubs” into decked-out racing vehicles since 1992. There’s also the annual Peach Festival, a staple of summer that includes pie-baking, pie-eating contests, various vendors and juicy peaches galore, and Shakespeare on Berlin, where the Brown Box Theatre Troupe takes drama to the streets.
