I ordered the New York Sirloin Strip Steak which had veins of fat and gristle throughout. It was very hard and chewy and not tender, but clearly a cheap piece of meat. The vegetables which they labeled "greens" turned out to be overcooked spinach and was very soggy. Even the twice baked potatoes weren't that great. My husband's salmon was... More

Our B&B hosts recommended the Public House. It didn't disappoint. We had starters of spicy chicken wings with dry rub and coconut shrimp both of which were excellent. Mains of a special jambalaya and Caesar salad were also good. Fair choice of locally sourced draft beers on offer and a well informed waitress to guide you through the selection.

The Hinesburgh Public House delivered on an exquisite dining experience. The seafood special was the Seafood Cioppino which was a dish full of fresh seafood including scallops, crab, mussles, clams, haddock and halibut in a tasty tomato fennel broth. Highly recommended this dish for seafood lovers.

Afraid we'd be forced to endure the usual dark, gloomy, pub-foody scene but finding nothing else shy of a drive to Burlington, we sought out "The Public House" from our remote farm B & B in the middle of nowhere. Surprise! Nothing like the local pub in either fare or atmosphere. Nice bright atmosphere with high ceilings and a fairly... More

I've been here a few times. They had a special of a Shelburne Farms rib eye. It was okay but I've had better. It was a pretty small cut for $28. It came with a baked potato and a few sautéed onions. I consider the onions a garnish and not a vegetable. It does not come with a side salad... More

The ever changing menu is one of my favorite things about here! They always keep the menu exciting and showcase the local meats and produce that is in season. The staff is amazing and will always go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Be sure to ask what Rookie's Root beer flavors they have on tap... More

Third visit here,this time on my way back from Burlington, late afternoon/early Friday evening. A large group of family and friends had arrived just ahead of me. I was welcomed warmly and the service was very efficient. I ordered a garbanzo bean wrap which was generously proportioned and very enjoyable. Have eaten here when it's been very busy but the...
