This restaurant is situated in an ideal location where you have mountains on every side. The views are spectacular and the outdoor deck is a great place to eat in the warmer months. They have heaters out there so they likely allow outdoor dining all the way thru end of October. Publyk's is a very large restaurant but they do... More

I had the prime rib special. It was great. It came with the salad bar, which has a large variety of vegetables and some pasta type salads as well. We sat inside as it was starting to get chilly. I understand from others that the views are spectacular, particularly on an evening with a great sunset. We missed that part.... More

We checked into the Harwood Hill Motel and saw the Publyk House Restaurant right next door. We walked over and thoroughly enjoyed our evening of delicious food, nice atmosphere, helpful servers and awesome views. We had the baked cod and mashed potatoes, excellent, the beers were good as well.

This is what was left on my plate after I took the noodles and shrimp and put into a to go box. Need to work on this receipt or execution. Gotta say the bread and sweet butter are not good with anything but it self ??? So don't bother hoping to eat it with your salad?

Many restaurants fall apart when a larger than normal party need to be taken care of. This was not the case at the Publyk House. We had a group of about 30 and worked with Kevin. We told him what we would like and our wishes were carried out completely. I personally have contacted everyone who attended and there were... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the motel staff and was not disappointed. The food was delicious, the salad bar has plenty of options. The staff was excellent and provided some really good options. After dinner we sat on the patio and listened to live music. If you are close by you definitely want to stop here... More

I asked one of the managers at The Publyk House if they could host a post wedding breakfast for our guests the day after our son's wedding. It was Labor Day and we were finding it difficult to locate a restaurant in the area that would be open at that time of day and that served breakfast. The Publyk House... More

We almost didn't go to the Publyk House as it's a bit out of town but well worth the trip. Our food was served promptly and was excellent. We sat outside and the view was spectacular. Service was friendly and efficient.

We had been encouraged to go here by others in Bennington and told that the setting was spectacular. That is true ONLY if you sit outside - if you sit indoors, it is a pretty standard Chillis/Applebees/sportsbar decor. The food is nothing to rave about - the complementary bread and maple spread is delicious but the baked brie that we... More
