Very good dinner with family and friends. Prime rib is quite good and queen cut is huge. Salad bar is very nice and has a wide variety of options.

After a day of travel, the deck of the Publyk House at sunset was the perfect place to be. Relaxing atmosphere, excellent food worth the price and attentive servers made our evening.

Great day to sit out on the deck overlooking the mountain side enjoying a good meal with great friends. The food was very good and the waitress Rhonda was outstanding with a sense of humor. 5*s

What a difference a year makes. Invited two other couples to join us at our favorite Bennington restaurant. Have always enjoyed eating here (see previous reviews) this visit was a disaster. We were seated in the "new room" and the noise was incredible - it...More
