We found Public while looking for another restaurant that we remembered from a previous trip through town. Excellent find. And excellent fries! It also seemed family friendly as there was a family there -- I wouldn't have guessed that as the bar is central to the room, but there is a side room as well that noone was in. We ate there at 3 in the afternoon and it's always nice to find somewhere open between lunch and dinnertimes. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was I thought it odd that there were 4 groups of diners at 3 in the afternoon, and they sat us all next to each other instead of being able to enjoy the space - maybe not important to others, but I really didn't enjoy hearing the woman next to me explain her special diet to her friend, when if they were only one table over (we arrived first), I would not have had to hear it. But, the sandwiches were excellent! I loved the idea of pineapple on my ham and brie panini.

Very diverse menu - something for everyone.
We enjoyed the excellent beer list (with a dozen on tap!).
Very comfortable dining room(s), within 3 blocks of Mass MOCA.

Interesting beers and some cool wines. Nice array of small, medium and large plates. Accommodating for requests. The muscle dish was fabulous. The homemade fries are addicting. Would come back again.

In an historic building in North Adams, this restaurant specializes in local brews. The menu was somewhat limited, but they were very accommodating to allergies. Food was fresh, well-prepared. The only downside was the awful noise. It got worse as the evening wore on.
