This is a pub. Beer and burgers and brunch and lunch, with a few touches to bring it above just another brew pub. This is truly American style not a British or Irish pub. Great for lunch or brunch. Our 4th time dinning here for lunch and/or brunch. Good food and reasonable prices, Try it.

Burger and fries were great and not over cooked or greasy, but overall prices were just too high. Parking is awful, service mediocre.

We enjoyed returning to this favorite spot. We chose to sit outside, even though it was cool and breezy. Staff were pretty good about tending to the outdoor tables, including managing umbrellas for the sun and heaters for the cool evening. This is good solid pub food, with some quirky dishes, served in hearty portions. But I am not sure we will be back.
We were surprised to see a notice in the menu announcing that they are SORRY to have to add a 3% surcharge to all bills because Petaluma's living wage ordinance has increased their labor costs. We are PROUD of that ordinance and support a living wage for all workers, and it was very disappointing to read that. Why not just raise your prices 3%, if that's what it costs to cover the additional labor cost, and not complain about it in a way that seems designed to place blame on your employees and reduce their tips? Why not be supportive of a living wage for your employees? Maybe that's why this is one of the local restaurants "hiring for all positions."

The food choices were excellent. I had the Reuben sandwich and it was delicious. The service was excellent. I felt very safe eating inside as the tables were spaced far apart. It was a great lunch!

Overall amazing amazing experience, servers were very friendly. The butter milk chicken was delicious as well as the chocolate pots. Was really excited for the loaded potatoes but I do not recommend, they were a big disappointment especially for the price

Food was a little expensive, but the food was fair. The service was good with no complains. The seating was at a small table for 4 people but our guest were already seated when we arrived, to much a hassle to move. In all a fair experience.,

The food was delicious and arrived timely and hot.
Our seats were outside in an addition that isn’t shown on their website and is next to the parking lot and street noise. It was freezing due to the windy conditions even though they had a heat lamp. Had to go to the car for a blanket.
Id go back but def wouldn’t want this section of the outdoor area

food is always good - this time average, too many potatoes with breakfasts. Initial biscuits are the best though! Service average this time as well - not as attentive as other times.

Mother’s Day reservation for 5. We were supposed to be outside in their garden patio area. It was a beautiful day so we were very disappointed when they seated us indoors and said we’d have to wait an hour for outside table. Food was ok. We ordered french toast with buttermilk fried chicken. Fr. Toast was underdone and chicken was in nuggets that were way over fried. Eggs Benedict was good except for hollandaise sauce which tasted artificial. Menu said biscuits with butter and jam came with our food but we had to ask for them and give an exact count of how many we needed. They were the best thing we had! So delicious! Our server was was very pleasant and helpful and overall things were ok. We love this restaurant and often do take-out over past year. Hope this is not a trend.

Pub Republic is a solid choice. The Food is always excellent, service is attentive and nice. We sat on the back patio, which was fine. I think it would be nice if it was spruced up a bit, does not have any ambiance. Just my opinion. Otherwise very happy with our dinner.

The server must’ve been brand new. But she had no clue what she was doing. Only visited our table 2 times and when we would call her over by asking someone else for help. Had to have 3 other people help us in order to get taken care of. She forgot to order sausage for my husbands breakfast and didn’t bring the entire table our biscuits until we were done eating. It made the entire experience awful. I’d go back for the food if that waitress was gone.

Nice outdoor eating area. Comfortable and safe. Reuben sandwich was good--I would have like more sauerkraut but good. Lots of beers to choose from. Some traffic noise but did not drown out conversation.

The food was so great at Pub Republic we returned the next day before we left Petaluma for lunch again! Best vegan burger I've had anywhere ever! The outside patio next to park offers perfect ambiance. The service by Luis was fabulous ... he actually remembered us on the 2nd day ... made us feel like welcome locals. Love this place and next time we visit wine country for sure we'll dine here again ... wish it were sooner than later!

The chairs need to be replaced. Very concerning. Our Waiter needs a bus person to refill our water glasses. We didn’t understand why after the entire beer was poured into the glass the empty bottle was put on the table each time. We waited an hour for our food.

Really good food and large portions but the service was really frustrating. They forgot our drink orders twice and on one occasion brought everyone’s order with the exception of one person. We asked three times for the place settings and they kept forgetting. It’s a shame because the outdoor dining was lovely, as was the food, but the service makes it difficult for us to ever want to return.

I love this place but while I understand that we are in a pandemic; the lack of salt and pepper and an invisible server is crazy. Our reservation was for 11:45 and it was close to 1:00 p.m. before we received our order. Again out server was missing in action and not very helpful when he did show up. I have had a previous Awesome experience and it was all do to the server and his helpful attitude and checking in to insure we had what we needed.
