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

We eat here a lot and have many great meals. Service is wonderful. And this last week, I finally was served an absolutely super pork chop. Double thick, great sauce, cooked pink in center and very juicy. Overall awesome.. Still can taste the chop as I am writing this 5 days later.

My wife and I visited the Publick House on a Friday evening around 6:30. While we did not have reservations, we were seated within 5 minutes of arriving. We have gone to PH a number of times over the years. We still believe the food is a good value in the midcoast. The menu offers a variety of interesting choices.... More

I've been to Damarascotta often and have passed the Publick house many a time - it was great to finally try it out. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and Husband & I were in the mood for burgers - this place delivered Phenomenal burgers! Huge patties, fresh ingredients, juicy - the best burger I have ever had.

Came early on a weekday--our first visit. Thought we'd have a leisurely drink and then dinner. Excellent beer on tap selection. They were out out of one of their signature dishes, shepherds pie 😠, but we had the "duck and frites" and the "duck salad"--both excellent: fresh duck breast, greens and small fresh-cut fried potatoes. Not hurried, friendly and overall... More

On a recent business trip to Boothbay my colleagues and I were looking for a lunch before heading back to work. We asked for a recommendation and were directed to the Publick House in Newcastle. We were greeted and seated promptly. According to the hostess there had been recent renovations and the place looked clean and up to date. We... More
