Glad we stopped

We stopped by looking for something to eat. The parking lot was crowded so we thought we'd try it. Great place. My son didn't like his pasta. It was good but not for him. We sat outside with a great view and the service was great.

We were visiting Bennington, and the hotel recommended this. We're glad they did. The building has the feel like it has been there for a hundred years, but I think it is actually rather new. It's a charming facility with a great mountain view. As a restaurant It has everything: great salad bar, good dinner, good service, friendly staff. If... More

Came here after receiving a recommendation from the Vermont Visitor Center. Disappointing dinner. Meals were overpriced. Salad bar was sub par. Lobster Bisque soap didn't have any lobster in it. The soap was cold. Our waitress wasn't anywhere to be found. The bartender helped more than our waitress. Waitress's for adjacent tables were very attentive. Won't be back and don't... More

We had a great experience. Sit on the deck for sunset! Amazing views of the Green Mountains and The Bennington Monument. The service was great! We had the salad bar (a meal by itself) and two appetizers - the Bake Brie and the Mussels with a bottle of wine. YUM!

Having grown up with the original Publyk House it is so nice to see it is just what I always remembered every time I go there! We had a great dinner party for my birthday in March but even for a night out with friends it doesn't disappoint. Excellent food and the best salad bar around.

I have had several meals there during all the seasons. I have always found their food to be exceptional and their service above and beyond expectations. The atmosphere and decor are informal and cozy as well as appealing and unusual . Always neat and clean.

I was double billed for a dinner - once without a tip and then later dinner with a tip, Contact with the restaurant has not resulted in a credit. The food, while goo, was no better than other Bewnnington restaurants.

It is distressing indeed to hear that you have two charges on your credit card, however the management and owners of the Publyk House have not been contacted by you to try to figure out what the issue might be. We have never experienced anyone getting billed twice as our computer system does not have the ability to run a... More

We tried the restaurant and thought it was just okay. The bread is always a good indicator of the quality of the food to come, and the bread was tasteless. The view is probably lovely if you sit on the deck, but we couldn't see anything from the inside of the restaurant.

We are glad to hear that you were pleased with the service during your dining experience with us! We are surprised that you found the bread unsatisfying and we have shared your thoughts with our kitchen staff. Our customers love our home baked honey wheat bread and maple butter and typically rave about it and we are so sorry that... More

Publyk House is still our Saturday nite favorite. Just had a delicious dinner, Jamie, our server, who was courteous and checking back numerous times to make sure everything was okay. We have never encountered any problem with service, food choices or drink selection. Family and friends visiting us from N Y always want to return to the
