My friend and I were heading down Route 7 after a day spent at Bromley Mountain, and stopped at the Publyck House more or less because it was along our route. Shaped like an old barn and nestled along the hillside with the Green Mountains spreading out behind it, the atmosphere was terrific. We opted to sit inside, but there... More

Made a reservation for our group to sit on the porch, and we were given the best table! Save room for dessert -- a variety of homemade ice cream flavors.

My wife and stumbled upon this restaurant after visiting Bennington. Vt. On the way back to our campground in Arlington. If you eat here ask for a window seat. You have nice view of the Bennington revolutionary war monument which is the second highest man made monument in the us. Food is above average. And has relaxed atmosphere.

We visit the Publyk House at least 3 times a summer and have never been disappointed. The salad is always fresh and crisp. The meats prepared to perfection and the service delightful. We are summer visitors to Bennington and have been eating at the Publyk House since the 70's.

The specials are always terrific - Frank, their chef, is... More

Elizabeth, our server was friendly but more importantly knowledge about the menu... More

My wife and I went to the Publyk House in Bennington last evening for dinner. We had a great meal including a very nice salad bar. The bread and maple butter are wonderful. Our waitress was friendly and very professional. Attentive but not annoying! We ate on the deck and enjoyed the sunset and view! We will certainly go again!

The Publyk House has a great salad bar (including a lot of veggies not usually included) and their location can't be beat. One looks out over the green hills and can also see the Bennington Monument in the distance. Friendly service.
