I went to the Publick House last week for the first time in about a year. Before our move to Brooklyn two years ago, we lived in Brookline for many years, and went to the Publick House at least once a week. Shame on me for not writing a review earlier. The Publick House hasn't missed a beat since my last visit. The selection is still top notch - both bottles and drafts are plentiful and thoughtfully selected. The pours are always fresh, and served in the correct glassware. In addition to the Belgian-leaning selection, there is always a variety of great New England beers (including the ever-present selection of Allagash). For a top-notch beer bar, the food nearly matches the great quality/selection of the beer. The mussels are great (although I never stray from the Schlenkerla choice), and there is always an interesting selection of cheeses. The mac and cheese (with your choice of additions) is so good, I get it nearly every time....although the meatloaf is also delicious.

They draw a crowd every night of the week (although weekends are even busier). Like other extremely popular restaurants, occasionally the service can be a little slow (but that's the exception). However, I have always found the bartenders and servers to be friendly and knowledgeable.

Definitely a must for any visit to Boston...and with its sister restaurant, American Craft, just up the street, you could make a whole afternoon/night of the trip to Brookline.

Regarding the value, for Boston, I think it is relatively reasonable.
