I finally got a chance to check out the Publick House this pats weekend. I knew it gets pretty busy these days, so we went in right about 4:30 (when table service starts). They keep their current tap selections written on a chalk board, and there was certainly a good selection when we were there. It was pretty quiet when we got there, but then again it was 4:30 on a Saturday. By 5pm every was full and it was reasonably loud.

The beer menu was excellent. 4 pages broken down by type, and ranging from local beers to belgian imports and beyond. They include the ABV of each beer, to let you know better what you're ordering. Also, draught beers over 8% are an 11oz pour. If I remember correctly, prices for draughts ranged from $5 - $9 or $10. The extensive bottle list started at $4.5 and went up from there, depending on the beer and the bottle size. Trappist beers started at $7 or $8.

The food menu also has decent variety, ranging from some traditional belgian dishes to your typical pub food (burgers, etc). I got the burger and it was huge. I only finished about half of it.

I was glad to finally check out this place, and I have to say that overall, it was a great decision. My friends live in Boston and frequent it more often, and said that it gets really busy every night of the week these days due to the increase in popularity. Prices were a little on the high side ($10.50 for a burger), but the size was humongous. I would've been fine with a smaller and less expensive burger. With the extensive beer list, its hard to beat. Just get there early.
