1764 Public House honors the history and resurgence of St. Louis and its Central West End neighborhood. Our breakfast menu, lunch menu and dinner menus feature modern twists on St. Louis and New Orleans favorites such as St. Louis-style pizza, seafood gumbo and gooey butter cake. At the bar, you will find unique cocktails, craft beers and an extensive wine selection.

As with every Gamlin Restaurant Group establishment, each dish at 1764 Public House is made from scratch using fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

Good service and cocktails, but the food was too salty and oily. I would not come back for brunch but might for happy hour.

WE TOOK OUR FRINED OUT FOR A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AND IT WORST SERVICE/EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD! APPETIZER CAME OUT WITH MEAL,9NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL) MY HUSBANDS FOOD WAS COLD AND NOT VERY GOOD- AND WE WERE UNBALE TO TELL ANYONE BECAUSE THE SERVER NEVER CAME TO THE TABLE TO CHECK ON US. WE LITERALLY HAD TO GET UP TWICE TO ASK FOR OUR BILL- WHICH WAS OVER $150, NOT BAD FOR 4 PEOPLE AND I CERTAINLY DO NOT MIND PAYING FOR A GOOD MEAL IN A GOOD RESTAURANT.

This experience was so-so. The noise, at first, was too annoying even though we were NOT sitting in the "sports bar" area. The service was good and attentive, however the food was mediocre and, given the many options in the Central West End, we are unlikely to recommend or return.

It was especially disturbing that I asked to have my parking stub validated, was told it was unnecessary and that I would not be charged, but then the machine in the garage demanded 3-bucks! Not a huge amount, but an aggravation that should not have happened.

After perusing the menu we decided on 2 dishes that included polenta. Our waitress informed us that those dishes weren't available as the restaurant was out of polenta. I asked if we could substitute a vegetable or mashed potatoes for the polenta and she told us it wasn't an option. Disappointed we decided on another dish, not one that interested either of us, and were then informed that the polenta had become available and our original choices could be ordered. I find the drink prices a bit high, although the food is outstanding. If it had not been Valentine's Day and we had ordered oysters; I believe we would have left the restaurant after being told that our dinner choices weren't available.

We found that our food entrees were very nearly too salty to eat. We could only eat part and did not care to take leftovers home. The salid was fresh but very bland. The French frys were good

The food selection is amazing. We were really excited to try it out! The service was quite slow including the initial drinks and food and it seemed like a couple of the dishes had been sitting for a bit. The pork steak had tough edges. Also, the beignets were overdone.

I think if these things were fixed it would be awesome. Definitely would come again.

This was overall disappointing. We were there early in the evening and the place was not busy. Bar-like atmosphere with the usual TVs. Beer selections were good and our server was great at giving recommendations. They have only the lousy O'Douls if you want NA, which is surprising given their other broad beer selection, when so many breweries, including some local, make great NA beers.

We order catfish and fries, shrimp cocktail and crawfish ravioli. The pimento cheese dip that arrived with the ravioli had been sitting long enough that a skim had formed on the top of the cheese, which then carried over into the ravioli themselves, which despite being slightly overbrown, were luke warm at best in the center. The shrimp cocktail sauce was good, with a nice kick, but the shrimp had clearly not just been shelled, they too had a bit of a rubbery edging as if refrigerated and pre-prepared. The catfish breading was a delicious flavor and the fries were the best part of the meal, but again all was lukewarm. I would have returned it had we not been trying to make a movie time. GIven the family of restaurants of which this is a member, I found the whole thing disappointing and expensive for the experience. Server, think her name was Ali, was stellar.

With all the restaurants in this neighborhood, I'd take a pass.

When we walked in the hostess told us we don’t take reservations, I don’t know why open table does this. Our server was great, but the menu was bar food at higher prices. Three dinners, three ice teas, and one desert not worth $74. Two were sandwiches and one jambalaya with a tea pot with the liquid, not a rue.

Nice location. I thought the prices were a little high for the type and quality of the food. It is a very noisy environment that has more of the feel of a diner than a pub in terms of decor. Overall, my group enjoyed it though.

We arrived on time for our reservation and were immediately seated. Our waitress quickly took our drink orders, but the waiting began from there. Drinks took too long but were good. Appetizers arrived within a reasonable amount of time and were good. Unfortunately, our meals took an additional hour-plus and arrived cool. Not sure what was happening but it was clear that something was not right with the restaurant operation. A manager was very apologetic and did not make us pay for anything. I would not recommend this restaurant.

I went with three colleagues from out of town for dinner. This place looked like it had the quintessential St Louis menu. Sadly, the food was the most disappointing part by far. I had a salad with grilled chicken which didn’t seem very fresh and the chicken was tough. One person got the jambalaya and it was way too salty for him to eat. The toasted ravs seemed frozen and cooked in the microwave, and the Saint Louis style pizza was definitely the star of the evening... it’s a little hard to ruin pizza. Also the wings were tough and the oysters were not great (tasted fishier than I like). That’s it for the bad. The outdoor area was really nice and my favorite part was the friendly service. The cocktails looked great but I didn’t have any.
