Southampton Publick House brews and cooks. Go for very good beers and ales, and tasty, straightforward American fare that's a cut above the usual bar chow.
This used to be Herb McCarthy's Bowden Square, heady with Scotch and visits from celebrities. Now, come to the venerable address for potato-and-pale ale soup, shrimp cocktail, wraps and salads, burgers, marinated sirloin, baby back ribs and fish-and-chips.
At brunch, there's eggs Benedict, Belgian wafles, corned beef hash and the like. Wash everything down with the house brews and seasonal specialties.
The house sampler is a flight of 4-oz. tastes. Among the top brews are the Belgian-style Saison, Double White Ale, and Imperial Baltic Porter.
The food is about what you'd expect, with hamburgers, prime rib, baby back ribs, steaks, and grilled seafood leading the way.
Go with a group. --Peter M. Gianotti
The Bar Scene
It's a wide building, with the bar running along the back wall. There's a dining area, plus a section called "the taproom,” where live performances take place. Outside, a large sheltered deck area has plenty of tables for warm-weather revelry.
Munich-style Southampton Golden Lager, brewed locally, is on tap.
