My wife and I really enjoy the Publyk House. We discovered the restaurant during our trip to Manchester Center two years ago and stop by each time we are here. We have always been able to get a table on the porch overlooking the mountains. The food is wonderful, she enjoys the Shrimp Scampi and I usually have the steak... More

A group of four somewhat picky eaters. We all found something to eat and each really liked it. Salad bar was great. Maple butter? YUM! Pets are allowed on the outside deck. Staff is great!

Let me start by saying that I have eaten here on other occasions and I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. But was very underwhelmed by the brunch. I had emailed them directly with questions regarding the brunch to determine if it was menu or buffet style. They responded telling me all the items that would be available on the... More

Very good food (and we loved the salad bar), courteous and pleasant server, generous drinks, "night out" atmosphere in the main dining rooms. But: our party of four arrived at 7:15 on a chilly Saturday night. There were numerous tables empty in the main dining areas but the hostess showed us to a table in the bar. One of our... More

It's been many years since my last visit to the beautiful barn overlooking Bennington. When we arrived, we were seated straight way as we had reservations. Ambience was pleasant with the exception of the setting sun (a bit like going to your eye doctor and starring into the bright light for 2 hours). We started with the bread (honey wheat)... More

I went into this restaurant with some of my companions. We enjoyed the food very much, and I enjoyed a burger. The service was very good, and we overall thought it was a great restaurant. The music was also very good, and involved instruments like fiddle, and guitar, and bodhran.

On a whim - and because it was my birthday - we went to Vermont for the afternoon and stopped at the Publyk House at 5:15 for dinner. (They open at 5:00.) We had never been there before and did not make a reservation because we weren't sure when we'd get there. We told the hostess, "Two for dinner" and... More
