This is one of my favorite places to go for dinner. They have an excellent selection of beer and wine and their food is wonderful. They have seating in a dining room, the bar and a patio.

So delicious! I love everything here but I had the Chicken Truffle Oil Hash. They were willing to sub cauliflower for potatoes and it was SO yummy. Their burgers are the best too. And don't forget the Truffle Fries.

Was happy to dine at Pub Republic last weekend with my family and a friend. Our waiter was fantastic. I can't remember his name but, a young guy with sandy blonde hair... really fabulous and helpful. He was available when we needed him and he attended to all our needs. I had an Ahi Burger with Wasabi Cream...yum. I especially loved the sweet potato fries that came with it. We also had burgers, fish n chips and a salad at the table. Everyone was happy. The food arrived pretty quickly too.

I go there for the Brussels Sprout tacos. Love them - they never disappoint me. Service was a bit uneven. Took a long time to get some of the drink orders. But food all came at about same time. I will keep coming back for the Brussels Sprout tacos!

The hostess made an odd comment that made my wife and I feel uncomfortable. Then was annoyed she had to move around our toddler to grab menus.
The food was fair. Our appetizer arrived after our entrees but we had to ask.

It is a nice place that welcomes dogs and that was one of the reasons why I had chosen this restaurant for dinner when my husband and I spent our weekend in Petaluma. The staff were friendly but we were surprised that the quality of the food, from presentation and appearance to freshness and taste, was very poor. My husband ordered fish and chip while I ordered a grass-fed ribeye steak. The fish was soggy while the fries did not taste fresh. There was a piece of lemon on the plate, and it looked pathetically dull in color and we both questioned how long had it been sitting out in the kitchen before it was placed onto our plate. My ribeye steak had a slight funny taste, and it was definitely not worth the price that we had to pay for such a horribly prepared meal.

Had dinner with friends today, very hot outside. We were seated in the bar and it was extremely warm even with the shade down. They have very high ceilings with fans but interior was still very hot, don't think they have air conditioning. Several couples left before placing orders due to the heat. Food was good but won't sit in the bar again on a hot day!

Service was very poor. Brand new server or perhaps someone who should find a different job? She was pleasant, but she must have made 20 trips to the table. At least 12 just to bring out 3 meals properly. My friends’ meals were both cold before my prosciutto asparagus eggs Benedict came out of the kitchen much later and it was not even hot - the poached eggs were nearly hard boiled (were they sitting under a food lamp the whole time?)
The flavor of all food ranged from fair to very good. They should however take Bloody Marys off the menu. Neither my friend nor I even drank 1/2 of ours. The flavor was poor and the most basic of all Bloody Marys: just vodka, tomato juice, 1 tiny baby dill pickle, 1 lemon square and then a whole bunch of cracked pepper. I’d give the place 1 star, but at least the service was pleasant. No one was rude, just poor at their jobs or having really off days.

Food was good. It’s been better. And those biscuits should definitely arrive warm so the butter melts. A little cooler than room temp just isn’t that good.

Bacon tomato avo scramble was my least favorite of all the fishes I’ve had there. Fairly tasteless. I’ll remember that for next time...

Food and drinks were tasty. SLOW service getting it to us. Menu said biscuit n jelly with all breakfast items. Our table got none. Not sure how long they have been in business, but there are some definite kinks to work out. Good luck. It’s a nice space. Hope they can improve!! Will try again after a few months.

I consider us regulars at Pub a Republic. Food didn’t have much flavor this visit and wasn’t that hot. Perhaps because it was a holiday. Our server however was exceptional!

My food was overcooked. Burnt grilled sandwich on marble rye. Kinda ruined the whole presentation and taste. Salad looked good, hamburger at our table looked amazing... I'd go again to try their cauliflower paprika tacos, heard great reviews about their brussel sprout tacos as well.

Great restaurant which we have been going to regularly. Enjoy the ambiance and convenience. Food is good quality especially Shepherds pie. Recent menu change significantly downgraded the steak offering. The Manhattan cut NY strip was removed and now it’s just a low end fatty cut that’s available. Disappointed

We waited about 50 minutes to get our food after ordering. Went in for a birthday family celebration for weekend brunch. Home fries were dry and overcooked. Monte Cristo was very small. Food was okay but not great. Eggs Benedict had the eggs fully cooked, no runny yolk. The waiter was nice enough to bring out two new poached eggs, but otherwise was unattentive. Took a long time to get even offered coffee refills, never offered more water. Would not go back.

Went to brunch there recently and my experience was not good. Our waitress took our order, We asked if we could have our biscuit and coffee. While we were waiting for her, we noticed the people close to us got there biscuit. So then came their meal. We are still sitting. I saw her and she was just standing there looking into space. She finally snapped out of it, and saw us and ran into the kitchen. She brought our coffee and biscuit. The biscuits were so cold the butter did not melt. We finally got our meal, which was just ok after all of that

A large selection of beers on tap and in bottle. 'Started with the killer sweet and sour mushroom soup which would rival some of the best concoctions from any Napa Valley Chef. Then went into a very nicely proportioned and balances Caesar Salad with chicken - 'Just enough of everything! Our waitress was very attentive, non-interrupting during conversation and was timely with presentation of meals. Great value and some of the best "Pub-Grub" around!

I feel if you’re paying $22 a plate it should come with a salad, I got the brisket but left hungry. I’ll go again though.

We were promptly seated upon arrival for our 6:15 Valentine's dinner reservation. After waiting a bit for initial service, we were well served through the ordering and serving of our food. After the dinner was delivered, we did not get any attention (water, etc) until being asked if we would like dessert. The food was well prepared and presented nicely. The red rose for each of the ladies was a nice touch.
