We had dinner there while in Vermont for some leaf peeping. The meal was excellent and they had a gluten free selection. It was the best GF pasta I ever had. The chef was even willing to share the brand of pasta.

Convenient to nearby hotel. Nice setting. Good service. Overpriced compared to other places around VT.

We had two meals there on foliage tour. Large menu and a lot of choices. Unusually good salad bar. My brother in law really enjoyed the turkey dinner, which looked classic. I had salmon and scallops, and both were nicely prepared. Old fashioned desserts were great, although I was stuffed. Portions are generous and prices what you would expect. We... More

An excellent salad bar and service are merely precursors to the turkey dinner, a rarity in this area. The turkey was fresh and roasted in house, and the stuffing was comforting and savory. We ate more than we should have from the large portions, but only because the food was so good. The place is vast and attracts quite a... More

We recently traveled to Bennington, VT to see fall colors. Shortly after our late afternoon arrival, the host of our B&B recommended The Publyk House for dinner. We traveled there immediately as we were famished after a day on the road. We had never been there and did not know they preferred reservations. We arrived around 6 pm and there... More

We had dinner here on a Fall colors trip. The food was good, but not great. Wine selection was poor. The bar looked like the place to be, with appetizers. Maybe we will try that next time.

Always a good meal and great service. Had the pumpkin ravioli and was excellent. Then followed by "Julie and John" entertainment. Always a great performance

We have wanted to stop and eat here before but never got the chance until this trip. The dinner was well worth the wait. I had the filet and my husband had the salmon and both were fantastic. The salad bar is one of the best I have seen. Everything was delicious and we will certainly return on our next... More

Had dinner from a local recommendation. Beautiful place, awesome views. Good to make reservations. Nice large selection of food and a very remarkable salad bar. If u like lobster bisque- go for it! It's great! Service is great as well?

Thank Debanny
