Steak and Potatoes!

A business owner suggested the Publyk House and I'm so glad she did because this was one of the best meals I've ever eaten on the road. The steak was cooked to specification and perfectly at that. The potatoes and vegetables were perfectly made as well. Thank you for a terrific meal, Publyk House!

We love the Publyk House. Always a great dinning experience. A salad bar that is out of this world... fresh and clean with a bountiful selection. Specials throughout the week including a half price bottle of wine night. The bar does not disappoint either. Meals are generous and deliciously full of flavor. During the warmer months you can sit out... More

After driving 3 hours from New Hampshire, we were looking forward to celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary with a nice dinner. After reading the reviews, and seeing that it's one of the best places in Bennington, I figured we'd give it a try. We had never been to Bennington before. We had a reservation for 7:00, and it looked like... More

Kevin is - hands down - one of the best in the industry. I went there for a birthday girls night out. Kevin made going out in below zero temps well worth it. The food was wonderful - I highly recommend the lobster mac-n-cheese. (the bountiful salad bar never disappoints either) He kept our champagne glasses full, timed the courses... More

I was told this was one of the best in Bennington so I made the 45min ride there to bring my girlfriend out for Valentine's day. Well that person was wrong. I understand it was valentines day and they were probably busier than usual. First off our boring, lame, inattentive, and not so personable waiter acted like we weren't even... More

Excellent food and service! Stopped in after day at Stratton Mountain based on reviews. Rustic, country decor, fires roaring and comfort food. Portions were large and each entree came with access to the salad bar. Before the meal each table gets fresh bread and maple butter. Will definitely return and recommend!

Recommended by the manager at the hotel we were staying and we were very happy with our dinners. Quaint atmosphere of a converted barn, friendly staff, good food and local craft beers on tap. This all adds up to a very good dining experience. If you are in Bennington, skip the chain restaurants and check this place out. You will... More
