    Elevated gastropub fare. Exceeded my expectations. Great bar menu with well made drinks and an impressive draft beer selection. Highly recommended.

    The place is cute! The service was excellent!!! And most importantly, the food was tasty! My only complaint was that they added a service charge to my bill. Going out is a treat, one I budget for, so an extra almost 5 bucks added to my lunch for one was a not so pleasant surprise.

    Great food and service. Big windows open at night and it was cold inside the restaurant. Much more comfortable when closed. Great value. Highly recommend restaurant.

    We decided to try Public house because due to the Hurricane, all other restaurants were closed. We were immediately greeted by the kindest sweetest host, who sat us, answered a bunch of our questions, recommended some food items and got us water to drink. Stephen our server came over, took our order (we were so hungry from driving around) and immediately got our drinks and food out to us. The pretzel was AMAZING, and piping hot. My hubby got the cubano sandwich, loved it, and I got the chicken tortilla soup and a salad. Food was SO good, Service was some of the best we have had in a very long time so we really appreciated it. Thanks Stephen and host girl (did not catch her name unfortunately). We will definitely come back soon

    The service is always fantastic here. We normally come for business and have a medium to large size party. They are always able to accommodate and the service is always fantastic. Food is great and drink choices, as well.

    We had our usual salads are were not disappointed. Post-pandemic this place seems to have changed into a more casual and moderately price local hangout, and it is a welcome change for the better.

    This is a strip mall gem meaning once you're inside you forget you're in a suburban strip mall. The food is really good and if you order bottomless mimosas they bring you the full bottle which is so nice. Great service and a great brunch.

    Everything we had was delicious. I had the pastrami sandwich, which was very good. The side salad that came with it was phenomenal with caramelized walnuts. The cinnamon donut dessert was delicious and tasted freshly deep-fried. The service was great. The venue is a little loud. The booth seats were fashionable and comfortable.

    Food was great, our server was super friendly and helpful. It did take a while to order and get food but since we were a group of 5 I totally understand. They made sure to keep the mimosas flowing during the lull. Definitely plan to come back. Quality food for a reasonable price!

    We came for Mother’s Day brunch expecting a little more special touches, but there were zero. The staff is a joke, they couldn’t even muster a “Happy Mother’s Day” to my Mom Our waitress couldn’t explain any of the drinks on the menu; The food was bad: my son’s pancake was hard, like it was made a week ago the breakfast potatoes were mostly onions & peppers, maybe 1 square of potato. We will not be returning here.

    As a carbcounter, I like that there are many options that can be easily modified on the menu. My favorite item is the buffalo chicken wings. They taste amazing, and aren't breaded. Very nice, chill spot. Good drink menu. Friendly service. There is a comforting, local vibe about this place that I like. Will definitely be back.

    Our experience was cool except for the family who let their group of 4 young boys run around the restaurant climbing tables, yelling and wrestling while we tried to enjoy our meal seated at at outdoor table. The drinks were tasty, food was good but the service was awesome. Crystal was our server and she was awesome, very attentive and gave us suggestions on what to try. We will definitely revisit this place.
