“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

My family went for dinner to celebrate a birthday. We were all tired after a long day at the Garlic Fest in Bennington. From the minute we walked in we were greated with smiles, friendly chatter and excellent service. A good waitstaff can make or break a restaurant. Elizabeth, our server was friendly but more importantly knowledge about the menu items. Someone in our party had a food allergy and Elizabeth was helpful in offering to substitute items. She actually remembered what allergies we had mentioned which is a rare find. Just when we needed more drinks she appeared with them. They certainly seemed to have found good people to make this a friendly atmosphere. The salad bar is a nice way to start off the meal and had a large variety. The food was good even though the potatoes were cold. The prices were very reasonable and portion sizes were good. All in all it was a wonderful meal and a nice celebration for my mom. We will definately be back.

“Great food! Great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

My wife and I went to the Publyk House in Bennington last evening for dinner. We had a great meal including a very nice salad bar. The bread and maple butter are wonderful. Our waitress was friendly and very professional. Attentive but not annoying! We ate on the deck and enjoyed the sunset and view! We will certainly go again!

“Lovely views and food at the Publyk House.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

The Publyk House has a great salad bar (including a lot of veggies not usually included) and their location can't be beat. One looks out over the green hills and can also see the Bennington Monument in the distance. Friendly service.
