Nice Pub-Style Restaurant

Nice pub-style restaurant. It is busy and rather loud, but the food is good, the prices are good, and the beer selection is extensive. Comfortable enough for the whole family.

5 pages of beers available and food creations that were like typical pub food (fried and greasy) but with unique combinations and flavors. worth checking out. The place was on the noisy side, but unfortunately most places are getting that way too.

I have been here a couple times and have enjoyed the beer selection and other foods which are very good, but their mac and cheese is the best of any restaurant I have ever visited. My favorite is loaded with caramelized onions and bacon. Most every time we are close we talk about visiting again.

Love, love, loved the atmosphere. Friendly service, cold beer, and an excellent menu. We started out with the frites and paid extra to have all 6 dipping sauces. I liked the frites, but the "build your own" mac and cheese was to die for. I had the braised short ribs with jalapenos and my friend had a fried egg, bacon,... More

Not fancy. Not elegant. But perfect for what it is planned for. A place to cool off. Relax. Eat wholesome food and chill out.

Ate here with my husbands family on a sunday. They serve the lunch menu until 4 and the draw here was the mussels which are only served on the dinner menu. The burgers looked good from watching others eat them at the bar, lots of topping choices so you can make it custom. The frites are excellent, we started with... More

Tasty food - but if you are into quieter places, this one's not for you. Good service, fun place. The pastrami sandwich (a Reuben in Massachusetts!) was delicious, The beer choices were well explained by our server.

If you are looking to visit the great beer bars of Boston, The Publick House has to top your list. Yes, it gets noisy. Yes, it can get crowded. The thing about this place is that they really know about the beer they serve. We have visited twice over the past couple of months and both times our servers were... More
