Consistently very good food, great menu and atmosphere with wonderful views to match. The new room has great views and has warm, inviting atmosphere for catered events. Servers are congenial and caring.

My husband enjoyed his steak medallions, but I found my turkey dinner to be a huge let down. The turkey tasted.....strange. The service was good, however.

What a fantastic dinner! Salad bar is amazing with so many great options. Dinner menu options were also great. I had the salmon and it was delicious. We also had a martini with stuffed olives, yum! Although the service could have been a little better, the food and environment will make this a new favorite!

Had great dinner with colleague, very varied and unusual menu, beautifully cooked and presented dinner with extensive drinks offering. Setting is gorgeous, decor amazing, staff extremely bubbly and clearly loved her job! Can't wait to return.

First time going and probably the last. Had an issue and tried speaking with the "manager" who wouldn't even look at me when I was trying to explain the situation with one of her workers. She told me I was drunk and needed to leave and kept over talking me when I was only trying to resolve the situation. I've... More

Our management handled the situation fairly and professionally, especially during your loud, intoxicated, profanity filled rant. You are not welcome at our establishment. More

My purpose to be at the Publyk House was to hear the Julie Shea Band. Didn't realize you needed reservations. We decided to stay and eat so had the salad bar (it was after 8:30 so didn't want a large meal) which was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, our waitress was welcoming, friendly, and very attentive. Enjoyed... More

We returned since our last visit was incredible. This time only a 4. The prime rib wasn't as perfect. We ate at the bar since the restaurant was packed with long wait for a table. So glad we did. Rachel was our bar hostess was fabulous. Big deal you sit on a bar stool for the same meal. Rachel was... More
