Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent food, wait staff, and surroundings. Highly recommend for an afternoon lunch."

  • "All doors were locked at 12:10. Although we could see people eating inside and we had a reservation."

  • "Our family had a birthday party at the Franklin Institute one Sunday afternoon. It was a nice day and a group of us decided to go out afterwards. We had 14 in our party and the Public House had no problem fitting us in and handling us with excellent service. We were able to watch the NCAA while the kids continued their fun. It was great for everyone!"

  • "Fast and easy but had to sit by the door... very cold"

  • "I took 3 visiting Chinese co-workers here, and we enjoyed our meal very much. The waitress was helpful, and assisted my co-workers in navigating the menu as their English skills are limited. The price was reasonable for the location too; it came out to about $50 per person with tip which is pretty good for an upscale restaurant in Center City."

  • "Good (not great) local spot for lunch and bar activity. The staff is very friendly. Public House somehow never get to the Very Good or Outstanding ratings in my book."

  • "We selected Public House from the Restaurant Week website. It was pretty dead for dinner on a Sunday night, although having not looked at the location prior, it's not in a very hopping area either I would say. The menu looked good online, but turned out to be just ok and wasn't really worth the $35 restaurant week pricing. My dessert tasted like it had came frozen in a plastic bag. Overall given the number of great restaurants in Philly, it was pretty sub-par and we will most likely not return."

  • "The location was very convenient and the building is great. It was restaurant week and there $35 menu was great. My husband's meal was fantastic. Unfortunately my delivered meal wasn't what I had ordered so, while good, it wasn't what I had hoped for. Service was very slow. I'd recommend and would visit again - knowing what to expect."

  • "Don't know if there is a new chef or something else going on but portions were a lot smaller than the more than adequate meal that we were used to at the Public House. The quality was still there but not the size in fact the burger looked to be about half the size of what it once was. Very disappointed but stuck because it is the closest restaurant to my office for a lunch meeting. I was a frequent diner but will not walk the additional block or two for something more substantial."

  • "I didn't go to Public House expecting anything spectacular, but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find a nicer looking spot than I anticipated. Food was fine; it's basically elevated pub food--I had a very good burger, but others noted that their dishes were drowning in sauce or butter, and a few had issues with ingredients that weren't listed on the menu. Nothing unmanageable, but when you hate peppers and find that the bean salad is full of red peppers, it detracts from the dish. We were a large group and went for an early dinner, but as we left I saw that they had stanchions set up and a guy with an earpiece out front. My guess is this place is full of college students by 9-10pm on the weekends."

  • "We went to the Public House because it was on the recommendations list for the Philadelphia Marathon and fixed price carbo-load meals. The food was terrific. It was pretty quiet the night before. The next day we went back for lunch post-Marathon and it was super energetic. It was tough to get a seat at the bar, but we did and had a terrific lunch. They don't have an incredible beer selection, but the food and atmosphere make up for it."

  • "Lunch was good. Although very convenient to my office, it's not my go-to place for meals. The service is generally very good as it was on this particular visit, but the food is average at best."
