    22222 by Nail R

    22222 by Southern Y.

  • Caroline L.Friendly reminder :)

    55555 by Caroline L.

    55555 by Di J.

    33333 by Caitlin C.

    33333 by Jon G.


  • Boston.comThe Publick House has a well-curated tap list that features rare pours.The mac and cheese is a standout, and traditional Belgian fare pairs well with Belgium’s slightly sweet, slightly spicy beers.

    55555 by Boston.com


  • kiran k.serving brunch as of today!

    55555 by kiran k.


  • BU TodayThis bar and restaurant offers nearly 200 different types of beer and ale, many of them of Belgian and German origin and as hearty as the food they are served with. Just don't ask for a pitcher.

    55555 by BU Today


  • Rue La LaOne of the best selections of Belgian beer (draft and bottled) in the area. Get there early on weekends - it fills up fast, and food stops by 11PM. Our favorite brew? Delirium Tremens on tap.

    55555 by Rue La La


  • Kailey K.Skip the matchstick frites and ask for a bag of the steak fries and pick your sauces. Truffle ketchup, beer mustard and la choice mayo suggested. 3$ for the side of fries, such a hearty portion

    55555 by Kailey K.


  • Brian S.Try the pubini! Yum!

    55555 by Brian S.

    55555 by Lance P.


  • Sara F.HUGE beer menu! I think you could come here every day for six months and not try every beer. Try the Belgians.

    55555 by Sara F.


  • Edward K.Mac and Cheese is their quintessential classic. Extra good with scallops. Highly recommend the Delirium Nocturnum if you want a good Belgian

    55555 by Edward K.


  • DigBostonLike a promised land for craft beer fanatics, The Publick House has a droolworthy draft and bottle selection of Belgian and American beers. http://is.gd/5i5mdx

    55555 by DigBoston


  • HubScoutThe Moules Frites steamed mussels is better than anything you'd find at 4-star restaurant. I got the version w/ house-made fish stock - a perfect snack after an evening of craft beer sampling.

    55555 by HubScout

  • Caleb H.The beer haven for Washington Square and Boston alike. Mac & Cheese is famous. Truffle fries always hit the spot. If you like Coors, stay home.

    55555 by Caleb H.


  • Al S.The best thing about The Publick House is its extensive selection of rare (at least in the U.S.) Belgian beers, but the Monk Fries in a paper cone are a close second. Eat some with truffle ketchup.

    55555 by Al S.


  • RueBostonOne of the best selections of Belgian beer (on draft and in bottle) in the area. Get there early on weekends - it fills up fast, and food stops by 11PM. Our favorite brew? Delirium Tremens on tap.

    55555 by DancingQueen f.


  • Garrett L.Everything is good but the Mac and cheese is out of this world!

    55555 by Garrett L.

    33333 by sheri k.


  • The Ad ClubFood is Amazing, beer list is endless. One of the best bars in the city. Bill can add up quick, so if you're just interested in drinks try their sister bar American Craft down the street.

    55555 by The Ad Club


  • Jimmy C.Try the mac and cheese. Best you'll ever have.

    55555 by Jimmy C.


  • Josh W.Most flavorful steak I've had in years

    55555 by Josh W.


  • Erica A.cider lovers: try the dupont French cidre. Imported cider is a much more dry than commercial American brands.

    55555 by Erica A.


  • BostonTweetIf you like Guinness then try an O'Hara's at the Publick House. Look at the picture. How amazing do those triplets look?!

    55555 by BostonTweet


  • MazdaThe Publick House is home to The Monk’s Cell. In the door and up the ramp to you left is our exclusively Belgian Beer department, where all of the drafts are reserved for beers from Belgium.

    55555 by Mazda

  • Steve S.The mac & cheese is an absolute winner!

    55555 by Steve S.


  • Marcus L.Monk's Frites are great. Beer selection is excellent. Veggie Burger is good too, but get toppings (avocado, cheese, grilled onions) or it's super plain.

    55555 by Marcus L.


  • Ken M.Hands down best beer joint in town! Grab some fries with garlic dip too!!

    55555 by Ken M.


  • Rob S.The Lost Sailor Nitro IPA is exceptional. Perfect for a hot summer evening.

    55555 by Ash E.

    55555 by Lindsay E


  • Thaniya A.Let just say, I can't never order anything else other than Mac & Cheese. Who could resist 5 magical cheeses blend!!!! It's bloody delicious.

    55555 by Thaniya A.


  • James R.Go to Publick House and pick from the Outstanding beer menu. The Mac and Cheese with Andouille Sausage and Spinach was fantastic.

    55555 by James R.


  • Leah V.The best restaurant made mac-n-cheese you will ever have, never a dull beer moment. Go early weeknights. The weekend crowd causes an unfortunate wait and not much room to order while-you-wait drinks.

    55555 by Leah V.


  • John M.Go down the beer list. Drink special beers. Do not pass go. Do not pick up $200. Repeat as necessary.

    33333 by John M.


  • Angie KHad a regular burger with fries and it was delish. The mac and cheese is pretty awesome too. Kind of crowded usually but the beer selection is great enough to keep you entertained as you wait.

    55555 by Angie K


  • Adam MAlways has a good beer selection

    55555 by Adam M


  • BostonTweetIf you like Guinness then try the O'Hara's on draft! Same type of Irish Stout but with 100x more flavor than Guinness - and Guinness is/was my favorite beer.

    55555 by BostonTweet
