We ate at The Publyk House yesterday based on reviews here and the recommendation of our hotel front desk staff. The salad bar was small but fresh, tasty, and well-prepared. Bread was served with a very nice maple butter. My daughter had the bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken, which she loved (two huge chicken breast portions). I had the fish and chips.... More

We were incredibly disappointed in this restaurant and had an awful time. The waitress was extremely absent and made us wait a long time for both the food to arrive and later for the cheque. We were traveling with a young toddler and waited for 20 minutes to receive the cheque. After asking another staff member to find the waitress,... More

The Publyk House was a memorable restaurant for my husband and I over 25 years ago when we were dating and it is still a delicious place to eat out. The atmosphere is lovely and you can eat out on the deck with an amazing view of the Bennington Monument. My husband and I both had steak dinners that were... More

Based on Trip Advisor comments, we went to the Publyk House for dinner. The service was initially attentive and then the waitress seemed to forget about us an went down hill. After taking out dinner orders, we waited quite a bit of time for our dinners to come out. The meals were mediocre at best. I ordered a steak medium... More

We got a recommendation from hotel staff about place to eat dinner. We were very happy with the service and the meal. I ordered Lobster bisque and I thought it was salty to my taste. Our waitress overheard me ask my husband to try it to see if it was salty and immediately offered to get me something different if... More

Awsome from the amazing salad bar (best I've ever seen) to a surf and turf to die for. The homemade bread with the homemade maple butter. Service was excellent and the price was right on. I would suggest if your in the area make sure to go there.

I was very disappointed. I have heard good things about this restaurant but I was not happy with my visit. The waitress seemed annoyed and not very friendly. I was not happy that their bathroom does not have hot water, only cold water, to wash your hands. After my visit there I mentioned this to a few people that go... More

I loved this restaurant. The food, service, and atmosphere was wonderful. I can't wait to go back on a warm night and sit on the deck. Blake, the water boy was also very entertaining!

We drove in to Bennington Vt from Cambridge Ny last night to try something new and after a long day it was too hot to cook. We were very impressed with the decor service and food. We love that this restaurant had a big salad bar that we don't see much anymore. I had a blackened ribeye from the special... More
