Amazing beer selection, great service!

If you like a variety of beer then this is your place! The waiter was helpful in choosing the types of beer we were interested in. The mac and cheese was super. You can pick the toppings that you want. We did get there early (5:30) on a Friday night. It did start to get crowded when we were leaving.... More

My wife and I visit frequently. The beer menu is amazing and the waitstaff seem pretty knowledgeable about the offerings. (Wife prefers chardonnay but they have wine as well as beer). She likes the customizable mac and cheeese and I go for the best fish and chips of any place I know. The only downside is that it gets very... More

Excellent beer menu and incredible and innovative food. I had the fried green BLT the first time I came here, a favorite of mine below the mason dixon line, and a fantastic local beer. The last time I came with a purpose. I was running a half marathon in the morning and I was ready to carbo-load. The mac and... More

As weary tourists, we stumbled into Publick House, got great recommendations from our waiter and had one of our best meals while visiting Boston. The mussels and the seafood stew were amazing and we soaked up every drop with their delicious bread. I'm glad we arrived early as it filled up fast and got rather loud. It looked like a... More

We drove here from Cambridge during rush hour and just after a Red Sox game had finished. Maybe not the best choice of timing, but it was worth the trip. There was a decent food menu, but the reason I had been brought here was because of their beer menu, and that was excellent. A wide variety of styles of... More

Went here right off a rough flight so I wish I had a better appetite but regardless it was good and I'd definitely go back, with a bigger appetite. We started with the French fries which came with 2 dipping sauces, both very good. I had the mac n cheese with lobster which was really good and immensely rich, I... More
