This eatery is a very good one, always with excellent taste, variety and overall atmosphere. Went there about two months ago, and had the usual great food but they were VERY busy, and we were absolutely hurried through our meal. We ordered drinks, got them, and then ordered apps and the meal. The app came about three minutes later followed... More

I had notice this restaurant when I was at Bennington Tile and had been looking forward to an opportunity to visit. I read the reviews which are mostly positive. We did not have reservation for our party of six on a Sunday evening around 5:30. We asked for a table near the fireplace but the host sat us in the... More

This is a great place for pub fare and a good local scene. I am a part-time Vermonter, living there for seven years and continuing to go back often as my parents still live there. The tavern has a great feel with beautiful dark wood, friendly staff and great comfort food.

We went to dinner on New Year's Eve at the Publyk House and had a nice meal even though the restaurant was really busy. The salad bar is great and the service was good. Good selection and the meals were all good.

Food was good and plenty of it. Service was very good! It was cold at window table we were seated at. I would return in warmer weather if I was in area again but not in cold weather.

Wow, what a nice menu selection! It is a tad expensive so be prepared to spend $50-$100 on dinner for two. And they had gluten free cheese cake which the wife loved! Great service too. They must have had 3-4 parties, mostly birthday that night. Definitely a popular place for locals judging by all the VT plates in the parking... More
