We had an early lunch. My husband had the pastrami sandwich and I had the burger with Mt. Tam cheese. It was perfectly cooked although I was surprised that it was a frozen patty. I kind of expected something house made but nevertheless it was very good. The fries were excellent. I think the service could have been a bit more attentive. Once we received our food our waiter never came back to check on anything until it was time to present the check. Not that we needed anything but it would have been nice for him to check in. All in all it was a good experience and we would go back again.

I love fried chicken and mashed potatoes, the bacon maple gravy served with the fried chicken is so delicious. The sergers is usually spot on, tonight was no different, our waitress was attentive and quick.

I am not sure why, but the food has not been consistent the last few times I have been here, and service has been very poor/slow.

I’ve always been impressed with breakfast so was excited to try out dinner. Sadly, I was not as impressed as I had hoped.

The outside patio is the BEST: quieter, lovely, garden-like. Our waiter was outstanding. Food was very good and nicely presented. Beers...too bitter and hoppy for our taste.

we were looking for a spot that would be appealing to both meat eaters and vegetarians, this was a great spot. Our friends really enjoyed the vegetarian options. The food was amazing

It was a unique menu, lots of interesting items to choose from.

I was only hoping the Brussel sprout hash was made hash style, the Brussel sprouts became over whelming with very little bacon.

Tasted fine.

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.
