    I have been here many times with friends or family, and have had a good experience each time. So when my boss came into town, he asked me to make a reservation for lunch for the Corporate Office. I chose Pub Republic. Everyone loved it! I always have the Arugula salad with pistachios when I go there. It is delish!

    LOVE that beer. I just had it at the Stone Brewery in San Diego last week and when I saw it on the beer list I knew I had to go to this place. In addition to an awesome beer, my salmon was perfect! I asked for it as rare as possible and I got just that. It was even better than many of the salmon dishes I have had in Sonoma. Will definitely return here!

    We are so lucky to have Pub Republic in our neighborhood, the food is always really good and they kids are welcomed - they bring a snack of apples and carrots to the table, plus crayons and placemats they can color on. We don't have to sacrifice good food and service when we're dining with kids. On this particular visit, we had friends stopping in town for lunch as they drove back home to SoCal and we knew Pub Republic was the best choice since we had four adults and five kids aged 7 months to 6 years old. That's a real handful! The staff was great with the kids, the service was good, and everyone was really happy with their food. P.S. The Arugula & Pistachio Salad is soooo good and the Potato Nachos are a must!

    We found this spot while traveling for a soccer tournament. We had dinner one night and it was so good, we brought most of the team back the next day. It was a big group and they were able to seat all of us together. Service was a bit slow(only 1 waitress) but everyone pitched in to help from the hostess to bus boys. Food came quick for such a big group. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going through Petaluma.

    Stopped by passing through town on way home after a long weekend at the coast. The Brussel sprout taco was odd and totally awsome! Specialty hamburger was not so special and needed seasoning. Same with fries, fresh, crisp, and under seasoned. A bit of salt would go a long way in the kitchen. The place was only about 2/3 full, but service was slow and quite unremarkable. Bring your own parking place, had to drive around the plaza in which it's located several times looking for a place, even on a Sunday afternoon.

    Had sliders at the bar while waiting on my family to arrive for lunch. Sliders were juicy and flavorful and the bartender as well as the rest of the staff were friendly and welcoming. Restaurant had a lot to offer with a large menu selection of both food and drinks. Looking forward to coming back for the happy hour and trying some more food. Also had several gluten free options on the drink menu.

    This place has a pretty good happy hour (only on patio and inside stools), but you have to ask for the menu. The servers are a bit slow, don't usually know the specials, and never remember to ask if you want the happy hour menu (M-F 3-6). Some of the menu items are generic bar food, but others are real gems. The parmesan truffle fries and pub burger are great, but the fish and chips are a bit greasy and over priced. Overall the menu is kind of expensive, which is why I usually stick to happy hour menu items. They are great deals. I can bring my dog, sit at the patio enjoy a good beer and burger and the patio has a nice garden feel.

    The restaurant was not as packed as I had expected, which was a good thing. We were seated immediately. The service throughout was quick and attentive. However, none of us were very impressed with the food. My Pub Burger (1/3 lb with caramelized onions, garlic aioli, and swiss) was just plain boring - the aioli was more like mayonnaise and the meat didn't seem to be seasoned at all. The fries were tasty, tho. My husband's pulled pork, which he has liked in the past, was also not up to par. I don't know if kitchen dynamics are changing, but I will probably stick to going there for music and drinks, and skip the meal.

    We drove from Glen Ellen to eat here. We are pleased we did. Creative menu items, big servings and good beef used in the burger. We also had an order of calamari that was well prepared. Most pieces were tender and not heavy on the breading. Service was attentive without being over bearing. Did not try any beer this night. But next time will try the sampler.

    We always eat lunch or dinner here and have been wanting to try the brunch. It was delish just as expected even on a holiday. We had reservations which was nice and we were promptly seated. After ordering, they brought out warm biscuits with butter and jam that tasted from scratch. The menu is the epitome of classic California brunch with lots of options for everyone including kids. The food was amazing and we somehow managed to eat everything!

    Much more than your run of the mill Pub. Upon arrival, our dinner party of 8 was seated immediately, the wait staff was attentive throughout the evening. Pro's excellent value for the proportions served. The Arugula Pistachio Salad was out of this world. The salad burst with sweetness from the fruit and also had an earthiness flavor from the roasted pistachios. The Guinness Braised Beef Shephard's pie was another of the entrees that hit the mark. The beef was so tender and flavorful! Loved the Blood Mary, Honey Saison and Drakes Amber beers on tap. Can't wait to go back for another meal.

    Pub Republic has a great menu. Though my family certainly has their favorite items, we've never had anything on the menu we didn't like. The bar side can be a bit noisy, so if you're out for a quieter gathering, request the other room. I do wish their dessert menu would expand a bit.

    We had lunch on a Friday at Pub Republic. We were there just as it opened, so there were no crowds to contend with, though it did seem popular as time went on. The food was wonderful. Great burgers and a wonderful assortment of beers. The decor looks fabulously simple and clean. The bar is quite long and there is even a little patio. Will definitely return for more visits in the future. Thank you.

    This is a very casual restaurant. A really good beer selection, good food and good service. A really varied menu with lots of little plates and large plates if you are really hungry. We had brussel sprout tacos which were really good. The sprouts were grilled and served with avocado slices on tortillas. Delicious. Our friends had the Atlantic salmon and fish and chips respectively. They really enjoyed it. Our server was nice and attentive. Bonus: No corkage charge!

    Great setting, clean and wait staff freindly and attentive. Although, one of the bus boys had on way too much colonge. Thankfully, he only came by the table once. The bar was full and it looked like a great spot to have a drink. The food was good but not great. The fried chicken was a bit dry and the burger was overcooked. Like I said good but for the price, I would like better. Also had the pork belly taco for an appetizer. Cooked nice with good flavor but 12.99 for 2 medium sized tacos is overpriced.

    A nice meal at the new South Petaluma spot, Pub Republic. Still shaking out some kinks after opening, but very nice. They were out of their dark draft beers (by 6pm!), but had some canned beers to substitute. My dining partner enjoyed the beet salad, I had the Shepard's Pie. This is made with beef rather than lamb, but was still tasty. Looking forward to another visit after they get in the groove.

    This is a great place for high end pub food. We weren't sure what to expect because of the somewhat odd location, but it was truly delicious, the hosts and servers were extremely friendly and over all it was great! The only half complaint I have, is that we sat at this awkward table right at the very front that sort of wobbles- it was valentines day so I assume it was just an extra seat that isn't normally there (I wouldn't recommend that one table but highly recommend this restaurant!) I should also note that they handled the Valentines day rush beautifully!

    While looking for a great spot to do a valentine's dinner, I saw this place had great reviews. I booked it and was glad I did, it had delicious food that was a great price. I had the BBQ Pulled Pork, my wife had the Mahi Mahi and we split their mac & cheese & bacon. Despite the restaurant being packed, the service was still great, our server Ashley kept checking in with us to make sure everything was great and that we had refills. The owner then handed out roses to all the ladies. It was a real nice touch and made the evening a memorable one.
