Found out about this place on trip review and decided to give it a try, We were not disappointed. They have an ample salad bar and a varied menu. In addition they have a well stocked bar and good collection of craft beers. I would recommend going in the summer and eating on the back deck the view must be... More

Everything about our visit was great. We started in the tavern while we waited for our out of town friend. We chose The Publyk House because we knew the salad bar was incredible and the food is great. Our dinners were excellent.

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

I eat here when I pass through Bennington, maybe 3 times a year. I had the baked cod, which I have had before and enjoyed. Unfortunately, on this visit, the sauce was bland and the dish over-salted. In fairness, I eat very little salt, and this is a recurring problem when I dine out. The server, Chloe, was a bit... More

Nice place for a family dinner. The menu provides plenty of choices and everyone liked what they ordered. The portions were huge and in some cases way too much. The Lobster Mac & Cheese is excellent.

Pros - looks like a nice view if its warm enough for al fesco. Inexpensive. Friendly. A decent and hearty meal. The apple crisp was the best part of the meal :-) Cons - stuck in the '70s with a standard chain-type salad bar (think of gut-stuffing sides like pasta salad) and "fresh baked" bread that is more like brown-toned...
