Great favorite place!
This is a great place for lunch. Service was great - the mussels to die for. Owner Keegan greated us at our table and chatted for several minutes to make us familiar with the menu. I loved sitting near the window and people watching. I will go back "often", that's how much I liked it.

Was positively surprised by
Was positively surprised by the lunch menu at Public House. The salads were all quite yummy. It is a bit pricey for a daily lunch spot.

Good food but odd policy
Showed a little early for an 11:45 reservation on a Monday. Reservation for 5 but only 3 of us were there at 11:40. There was no one at the restaurant when we arrived yet they would not seat us til the entire party arrived. An odd policy in an empty restaurant. I was entertaining clients and it was a bit embarrassing to have to stand around an empty restaurant for 10 minutes.
The food is excellent. The Half Chicken is outstanding. Great beer selection and lots of T.V.'s. I like this place. Really my only complaint is having to stand around an empty restaurant until entire party arrived.

Still a great spot!
While this place may have "peaked" in the "hot spot" cycle, with Siena Tavern & others sprouting up in the neighborhood, it is still a great, energetic & fun spot with excellent high end pub food. Highly recommended.

Now serving brunch!
Came here the first day they served brunch and was impressed with the meal! Everything was served in a good amount of time, all of our dishes tasted good, no delays! Spanish benedict is a fun spin on a typical benedict, although the masa could have been lighter (too heavy for the heavy brisket). Portions are generously sized! Bloody Maries mixed very well. Kobe brisket melted in your mouth, the waffles in the chicken and waffles dish were fantastic (dense and tasty, nothing basic about them!), and omelette also made perfectly to order.

The place is absolutely gorgeous and has an amazing beer selection as well as food selection. I didn't want to leave. Definitely one-of-a-kind and should be a recommendation for all out-of-towners.

Decided to meet up with a friend to do some business and drinking so we chose this place and it was a hit! First and foremost is always the quality of customer service. And they are great! Very polite, nice, and not too pushy. Next is the drinks. And the special beer was fantastic! Food is always a plus at a bar. And they did very well. The guacamole was very different with peaches and salads were very good. Great place!

Sunny Networking Lunch on Patio
I met a friend for a networking lunch and we ate outside on the patio. It was a nice lunch, we both had salads, and it was overall a good experience. The scenery and ambiance was open and nice, with a view of the Trump Tower. I had the grilled chicken Caesar salad, and I was not impressed with the chicken....It was cubed and not particularly flavorful. I've had much better chicken. But the rest of the experience was good, server was helpful and friendly.

Grab A Seat At The Bar
Public House has got Game. Big screens galore, great food and beer menu. Prompt, friendly service... I tried the mac n cheese and brisket sliders. They were filling enough and paired well with the Firestone IPA.

Great Service! High Energy!
Public House is less than a block away from House of Blues, at State and Kinzie. Great environment to pre-show dining in a high-energy, young and vibrant space. Great opportunities for seating for 8 at a booth fitted with beverage taps, and as many glasses as you could need. Be bold and order at least one mac and cheese 'creations'! I will definitely return as will my friends in our group. Reservations strongly recommended; if via Open Table, call Public House after confirmation to arrange for any special needs or services. The staff is great!
