    We decided to try this place for the first time because they offered a discount to the nearby theatre ticket holders. When we went to the area serving dinner, in a room adjacent to the noisy bar, we were surprised that this room was very noisy too. The metal ceiling, which looks great, is probably part of the problem, in addition to the bare walls. It seemed like all the people there were yelling! Not a romantic dinner, for sure. The food was just ok. We would not recommend this place, although the service was good, and we did get to the theatre in plenty of time.

    Really enjoyed this restaurant and would highly recommend. They sat us at the front window which was enjoyable, we got to people watch on a busy Saturday evening. The food was excellent! Fried calamari to start, sauce had a nice bite to it which made this dish different from other places. Onto the steak sandwich, cooked exactly as requested and General Tao's chicken, from the special's menu-delicious! Dessert was the Ring Ding which was out of this world good! Having that for my main course next time! Yum! Service wasn't exceptional but it wasn't bad either, he was sufficiently attentive. When leaving, we were shocked to find a PACKED bar area...you would never have known this from the sound level in the restaurant. Sound is well contained!

    We were 8 people. The plates came out 3 or 4 at a time. They were not even warm when they arrived. One of our group received his main course when everyone else was finished. The Mac and cheese appetizer was tasty, but cold. The lettuce wedge was very good. My chicken schnitzel was like a piece of leather. The accompanying vegetables were hard as a rock like they had been microwaved too long. My mashed potatoes were cold and hard around the edges. The molten chocolate cake with vanilla gelato was the hottest and most delicious part of the meal.

    I had never been to the Public House. This past Saturday evening my wife and I along with another couple were on our way to another local restaurant. When we arrived we were told it would be a 2 hour wait for dinner. I quickly looked up other resturants on Open Table and Public House popped up. With almost no wait. With great trepidation we decided to give it a shot. I must say the bar area was quite loud, however within 10 mins we were escorted to the dining area by a very polite hostess and the noise level there was very acceptable. The server was happy and prompt, the appetizers would have been enough for dinner and were delicious. The main course was amazing. The night could have been a bust however, we all left saying we would be back

    Great location-atmosphere is NYC style-Open rafters-bar on one side divided by what appears to be huge garage doors with a door within through which you enter the restaurant from the divided bar area(Outstanding design!!) we sat by the window (removable/retractable for outside eating area) The service was excellent-friendly/timely. My Burger was the Best (Cooked to order-perfectly) ordered additional topping of mushrooms -YUM!! Roasted chicken was cooked to perfection/Delicious-recommend/would revisit

    Located just feet from the Patchogue Theater, this is a great spot to eat before a show (or after if attending a matinee) The dining room is comfortable and interesting, the menu is varied with terrific choices where everyone can find something from tasty burgers to elegant entrees. The kids menu is simple (as most are) but our 8 and 9 year olds enjoyed their meals thoroughly. Drink menu was good as was the beer selection. Overall a great place to enjoy the up and coming Patchogue Main street scene!

    We were looking forward to trying a new restaurant for us, Public House 49. It didn't quite meet our expectations. Service was ok, but a patron should never be left with out a drink. The taste of the food wasn't bad, but it wasn't hot. I have a pet peeve with salad that has been premade. Our Caesar salad bowl was served in a very cold bowl and it was over dressed. I felt it was over priced also.

    Public House 49 is a great place to come for fun, good food and good drinks. It offers a varied menu and prices from reasonable to more upscale. We had the wings with sweet chili sauce which were great! The sauce was just enough and not too sweet. It could have been a little spicier, though. I had short ribs over polenta, which, while not quite hot enough, was still delicious. Like fancy comfort food. My date had the grilled cheese sandwich, a deceptively simple name for a meal that included field greens, great cheese, fresh tomatoes, and delicious toasted bread. The service was friendly and attentive, cheerful with a good sense of humor. I'll be back.

    Went for a pre-show dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Service was terrific, a good server with a great sense of humor. There were four of us, each with a different meal, all were prepared exactly as ordered. The service/delivery was well paced, we were relaxed, not rushed and made it to the theater exactly on time. Interestingly, with all restaurants in Patchogue, the show headliner was in the same restaurant Looking forward to going again.

    We had a 6 o'clock reservation. We had concert tickets for 8 o'clock. We informed our waiter. He said it was no problem. Our main courses arrived at the table at 7:30. The manager comped us one dessert for the table. We made the concert, but would have liked to be a but more relaxed. The food was good enough, but we were not happy with the service at all.

    Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. We were a group of 4. We started with wing pops - very good, margarita pizza - good, and the macaroni and cheese - excellent. Two of us got the short ribs - very good, one got the salmon - was excellent. And one got the chicken in cacciatore sauce it was better than average but compared to our other dishes it paled. Dessert - their version of a ring ding was delicious. This was my second visit and it was a first for the other couple - we would all come back.

    Loved the energetic feel and outdoor seating, the restaurant had an open feel and there was a nice breeze coming through...very trendy place with a good bar scene as well. Seating was very comfortable, I liked the semi round booth style seating. I ordered a burger and although I ordered it medium, it was well done, no pink in the middle at all. I would come here again but more so for the atmosphere than the food.
