Mac and cheese if you have an affinity for it. Delicious. Service was slow and I don't know if they just didn't like our table or if that's normal. Great place for beer lovers.

I've been here twice and can't wait to go back. Just outstanding all around. From the atmosphere to the service to the food. Highly recommended their fries and their grilled chicken sandwich. If your looking to beat the crowds get there early or else you'll be looking at an hour+ wait. You won't regret eating here!

Visited The Publick House after work with some colleagues. The extensive beer list was a fantastic find: there are beers from all corners of the globe available. Our server was well versed in their stock and was able to provide very good recommendations we all enjoyed as we stretched our palettes. The food was good, average pub fare. My one... More

Visited here most recently on a Monday night for dinner & beers at the bar. Our server was very personable--gracious but still "fun." Beer selection is stellar, and the staff is knowledgable without being obnoxious about it. Food is great--mac&cheese is AWESOME (it wins Boston awards, and they are well-deserved), and the veggie burger has an indian-inspired spice base and... More

Enjoy a Belgian draft, or two, or ten! The draft selection is always outstanding. They have good, hardy bar food as well. Try the moules, excellent!!

Better to go early unless you want a crowded scene. Beer choices definitely the best in town, food options pretty mediocre.

I usually visit this restaurant a couple of times a year. The inside is a little on the dark side and can be noisy, but appeals to the younger crowd. I like to visit the restaurant in the summer to get one of the outside tables on Beacon Street, but there were not any available the night I was there.... More

Casual, tavern atmosphere with a great list of beers. Menu ranges from salads and sandwiches to standard steak/chop type items, along with mussels, fish and chips and mac and cheese. Friendly staff, solidly good food. The mussels and the seafood stew were particularly good.
