The best burger of the vacation... Hamburger Taco to be exact... spicy & stacked high with accessories! The beer flight was a great addition. Super nice staff.... speedy service... pass on the crowds in Damariscotta and RUN here... enter through the side door... no door is allowed facing a church! Town law... TRUTH.

Delicious food, simply served. The best crab cakes I've had in a long time. The service was lovely, and the restaurant is a great place to visit with friends and family.

Our party had the Publick Burger, Chowder, Chili Cauliflower and House Salad. All of the food was excellent, particularly the Cauliflower and the burgers. An excellent local option for a good meal.

Sat on the front patio on the 4th of July. Great view of the local fireworks but kind of buggy. Good was good but extremely slow in coming.

We visited this restaurant on the way home from Damariscotta. We wound up sitting at a window-side table so had a great spot to watch what was going on outside. As it was early for dinner, we each wanted a lighter meal, and the Publick House was great for this because in addition to offering full meals they offer "Pub... More

This makes me sad. It's a beautiful property even though it was a rainy, blustery day in Newcastle. I wanted a fabulous meal. I walked from the willage center to the Publick House, the entrance was not clearly identified , so I walked around the entire building in the rain. OK, fine, I figured the rest would be great.

The restaurant was just okay. The food was good, but the service was execellent. There wasn't much ambiance or character to the room.

I travel to this area at least once per month in the Winter and weekly in the summer. Of all the restaurants, this one has the most consistent, excellent food. The food ranges from traditional pub food up to high level cuisine. It is obvious they take quality food ingredients and their experienced chef seriously. I eat there every time... More
