“Good after golf environment”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Good, friendly service, fair prices, and you can depend on the food always being what you expected. Haven't had a bad meal there, yet. Waiters are very accommodating and food is served in a timely fashion.

“Go with what they know”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

I go to the area frequently and have enjoyed Ripe Tomato across the street. On a cold Monday in March, they were closed and decided to try the Publik House. The staff is beyond friendly and accommodating. Other guests were eating pizza and classic Italian like eggplant parm which looked good. There was a special; Haddock, so why not?

Why not is that this is not what they are famous for and what the other reviewers rave about. The fish was bland, the linguine with garlic sauce was missing the garlic and the broccoli was simply plain. Lesson learned, when in Rome, etc. etc.

On the plus side, a great value and the prices are excellent

“Cold Beer, Great Pizza”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

I have eaten here many times and it is one of the best! We have had everything from the pizza to the sandwiches and it is all great! You cannot stop here without getting the garlic bread with cheese, it's addicting! There are 6-8 pieces per order but we usually get 2 orders and bring it home. Don't forget to order a beer, the bottles are some of the coldest I have had. As far as the pizza goes you can get any kind that you would like. We all have our favorites so we usually each get a 4 cut and bring the leftovers home. Do not pass through town without stopping!

“Still the best pizza and more”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

The Publik House is a Malta icon. It has the best pizza around by far and has plenty of choices. However do not just love the pizza as I did for years, the whole menu is great. The lasagna as well as the turkey dinner are outstanding. Try the calzones, sandwiches, and salads, they just serve up nice food with good portions. When being in this small town you expect good food and a friendly atmosphere and The Publik House delivers just that. One thing though, there ius not alot of beef on the menu, not sure why?

“Good sandwiches, lots of atmosphere”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Stopped in after a long trip driving to Malta from Hagerstown, MD. Ordered sandwiches which were good. After seeing the pizzas, wished we had ordered one as they sure looked good.
