The menu, the decor, the salad bar... everything about this place is dated. The food was good but not memorable. If you want the same comfort food you've been enjoying for decades, this is the place to go as the food is fine, such as it is. They were very kind to let us in at 8 on the dot,... 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.

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
