    On Valentine's Day, my wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Public House, where we were delighted by their meatloaf and drunken mushrooms. The meatloaf was simply divine, tender, and bursting with flavor, while the mushrooms, soaked in a rich and savory sauce, were the perfect complement. The cozy atmosphere and the warm, attentive service made our lunch even more special. It was a simple yet unforgettable meal that made our celebration truly memorable. Thank you Public House!

    Sometimes the hostess and a person we thought might be a manager aren't on the same page, but I think they've fixed that. It was great.

    I absolutely love this place but last night to us the vibe was off. We came for a special occasion me giving birth and the hostess was rude because we were early which we didn’t mind waiting that’s why we got there early. She forgot to check us in and then asked us what our name was again. I get the same two things every time and last night it was just ok. Usually I’m bragging about how good it was. I got moscato wine and it tasted like it’s been sitting out for a long time. I will never stop going here because I enjoy it for date night so much. Just wasnt to impressed.

    First time at this well established Amarillo eatery. The food was top notch. Server suggested the chicken chipotle pasta. I substituted shrimp for chicken and it was outstanding. The mushroom soup was top notch. Not impressed with the carrot cake - but the server warned us it was from a distributor, not fresh baked. Only distraction is the level of ambient noise in a concrete floor, high ceiling, and open environment - everything seemed to reverberate.

    Ordered Mac n cheese with crab. Either the crab or cheese had spoiled. Service was terrible. Took an hour to get our food. I sent mine back ordered porterhouse and mushroom soup sounded yummy. They must have dropped a whole salt shaker into the soup!

    Arrived at 6:25 for reservation at 6:45 . No one at hostess stand. Then two people appeared. Half the tables were empty. We were asked to wait for the waitperson to catch up. We were seated at 6:53 at one of the tables that was empty when we walked in. Waitress showed up at 7:05. While we were waiting to be seated we noticed 3 parties came in and waited for someone to appear at the hostess stand. One couple waited for at least 5 minutes before they were greeted. Ordered the goat cheese and grilled chicken with candied pecan salad. Waited a half hour. Lots of spinach, good tasting chicken which was not at all hot when it arrived at the table. The strawberries were deliciously ripe. There were 4 candied pecan halves and about 2-3 tsp of goat cheese. This place was extraordinarily ordinary. The music coming from the bar was loud and obnoxious. Atmosphere was a cross between industrial and 1970’s office space. This place obviously has a problem with service. It has potential to be so much better. People rate this as one of the best restaurants in Amarillo— reason enough for me to not want to return.

    This is the best steak house in Amarillo! The food was as good or better than anything I have ever had in DFW. The medium-rare filet was perfect. Our only problem was that they had booked a large party and severely overloaded their kitchen and wait staff. It took us an hour to get our dinner. Our server made a heroic effort to save our evening, but she could not overcome the slow kitchen and workload. Still, I will visit the Public House every time I am in Amarillo.

    This was our first visit to Public House, and the first chance to see why the parking lot is always full. We were welcomed upon entry, seated fairly quickly and led to our table for two next to the wine room, which was really in the aisle. The ceiling fan under the light over the table was quite distracting, especially for reading the menu and just generally sitting across from each other. Our waiter arrived quickly, greeted us and told us the special. He returned shortly to take our order, and offered samples when my wife was undecided about a wine choice (though they were out of one of the tap wines). The wait for our meals was typical, the presentation quite basic. My wife's salmon was very good as were her sides. I had the schnitzel special with a tasty mushroom gravy. However, the bed of mash potatoes it laid on was lukewarm at best. If my iced tea was brewed, it was time for a new batch - it tasted like a bad powdered mix. The atmosphere was LOUD, due in part to the setup and decor, not just because of noisy diners. Several diners/drinkers near us should have been cut off as they were obviously tipsy as they weaved past us towards the restroom. Overall, the food was good-to-very good; same for the service. The atmosphere was lacking, and apparently if you want a restaurant with more PRIVATE ambiance, you should choose a place other than the PUBLIC House. We enjoyed our dinner, but aren't necessarily in a hurry to return, and will give this an ambivalent recommendation for others.

    Very nice restaurant, food selection, taste and portion size are all excellent! Varied menu with something everyone should enjoy. If there's only one "knock" I have to say it would be our waitress, honestly we felt rushed... She was very pleasant and quick to serve, it simply felt like she was eager to clear the table for additional diners. We would definitely go back again and certainly recommend this restaurant.

    We just moved to the area six months ago from California. It was our second visit to Amarillo and first time to Public House. We had a wonderful server who was very knowledgeable about the food and drink. The food and drinks were amazing!!! We were very impressed because the manager was there on a Monday night, and he stopped and talked to every table in the restaurant. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Amarillo!!!
