Combination of staff, food and ambiance were terrific for a family birthday party. Great food and very good local beers

We had heard it was good for burgers, and found the menu a bit limited. Although the individual prices didn't seem out of the ordinary, the bill seemed high for a mid week dinner for 4 ($150+). We had one soup and salad, two steaks, one chicken echinladas, a bottle of wine and two drinks and one dessert. Everyone enjoyed their food. Service was slow from the time we sat down to the end. We'd probably go back for lunch just to try it again but I wasn't all that thrilled, given that there are lots of better restaurants in Southern Chittenden County.

It was bitter cold outside but very comfortable temperature when inside. Our server ,Chelsea, was very attentive and friendly, took our orders promptly and made sure that we had everything we ordered. she also checked back to see if we wanted anything more or that we were enjoying what we ordered. It was a special occasion and the experience was great!

Wonderfully varied menu that offers something for everyone from foodies to casual diners. Ambiance is great, bar scene is active with almost entirely artisan brews, ciders, and kombucha.

They work with local farmers and source great vegetable, beef, lamb and poultry. Very cool resto option. We're going back.

I so appreciate having a venue for good food and good jazz on a Sunday night, what could be
better? I drove in from Moretown and it was well worth the drive to see friends and enjoy Jody and her talented band.
I enjoyed my burger, cooked perfectly--medium rare...
The service was slow and that might have had to do with the great turnout for the music and dining! When I made the reservation I don't recall indicating that I wanted dinner, that might help the management plan for number of meals.....there might not have been enough wait staff, but aside from was a lovely experience, Jody's sound system was great---perfect for the venue and adjustable....that is always an issue for performers...the sound. The space they performed in was perfect, it seemed and with her mixer, she was able to make adjustments as the space filled with people.....thank you so much for your dedication to jazz, community, and good food!!

We've frequented here and have always enjoyed the experience, but New Years Eve didn't impress. Our server was awesome ; however, several items that came out of the kitchen were overcooked and they were really really slow. We ate early and the restaurant was far from full. Disappointing.

Besides the food, one of the best things about HPH is the acoustics: conversation is easy even when the place is hopping! Other highlights: each item on the relatively short and frequently changing menu is yummy, prices reasonable; excellent beer and cider list BUT, most excellently, they take non-drinkers seriously and offer an excellent, artisanal root-beer on tap and several other quality tonics and soft drinks for the designated driver; the desserts tend toward retro-comfort food: chocolate cake with chocolate icing, apple cake, moon-pies.

Been going to HPH since it opened. They change the menu up often enough to keep things interesting, but still have a great foundation in local ingredients, especially the excellent grass fed beef from Paul List. There's always a selection of beers that come from the central tier of VT (think southern Chittenden county and south), which can be refreshing if you eat and drink in Burlington a lot.

We expected a great meal from the Public House based on the brunches. However, our dinner was only good. We both started with the butternut squash bisque. Good, thick soup but seemed starchy (?) I had the chickpea burger. It was too crumbly and could have used mayo or aioli or something. I loved the kale side though. My spouse had the short ribs. He thought they were fine but with the fat & bone, there wasn't as much meat as initially expected. We would try it again since we know they have very good hamburgers
