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

My wife and I are both hop heads, and after reading about this place on Beer Advocate, we had to try it, as it is rated world class in terms of their attention to quality craft beer and food. It was a summer Friday night, and we had to wait a bit. The place was packed, but the staff were... More

This restaurant is an institution in the area and is quite pricey. They used to have a less expensive tap room menu that seems to have been done away with. Classic New England Favorites are all available to fill a craving but the quality seems to be slipping in the interest of pre-prepared cost savings. Great atmosphere and staff still.... More

We've been here 3 times so far with our daughter who lives nearby. Great place to eat and enjoy the large selection of beer. Staff are always very friendly and service is very good. Outside seating is also available.

The food was very good, and the beer list was the largest I have ever seen! The waiter was very helpful in choosing one that I would like and answering questions my husband and father in law had! It was a tad dark in the dining room for my liking, but other than that we had a nice time!

My husband, my adult son and I visited this establishment on a Sunday in the middle of the afternoon. There were lots of people, but it was not full and we were able to get a table by the window easily. There were also tables outside available, although all were taken by the time we were leaving. My son brought... More

The staff is extremely strict about managing who gets seated and when. Even though that's typical of most Boston restaurants, the staff at Publick House is almost rude about it. We went there to get drinks with a small group of friends, and ran into another friend of ours who already had a table and was finishing dinner. So we... More
