About Public House - Chattanooga

Several years ago, I decided that my future in the restaurant business would most likely not remain in the realm of fine dining and gourmands, but would rather lean towards the style of restaurant that I found myself frequenting most often - places that provided consistency and quality at a price that was fair for the quality of the food and experience. Public House plays to the comforts of good, solid food, while applying the principles of premium food products to a more casual setting. You will find all the fish is delivered from Foley’s in Boston, high quality steaks and a rotating selection of vegetable sides that are true to the region and season. You’ll also find a really good hamburger and fish sandwich, along with fun snacks and small plates that pair well with cocktails, beer and wine.
Welcome,

Everything we tried at Public House was delicious. There were several options that I don't think I would have been able to get anywhere else in the city. It was a nice experience.

One of my best experiences at a restaurant since I moved to Chattanooga. Our food server was exceptional. My wife and daughter enjoyed themselves immensely, and we all left very satisfied. Highly recommend.

Decided to eat at Public House for my birthday and they had a card awaiting my arrival. The drinks were outstanding and my Filet was perfect. The waitstaff was extremely nice and even sat and talked with us for quite a while. Definitely my favorite restaurant in Chattanooga, will definitely be returning.

The filet is wonderful and the waitress we had was extremely attentive. I loved the fact that the hostess knew from past reservations that we liked a bigger table and we were seated at a perfect table. If I had to mention one area for improvement is the noise level, it is very difficult to have a conversation, their is just a lot of chatter and no buffer to absorb the noise. We have a friend with a hearing aid and can't go to Public House due to this issue. We love Public House!

My mom, my grandma, my sister and I were wanting a nice dinner before seeing a show at the Tivoli theater. Public House definitely delivered! It’s a beautiful restaurant with delicious, fresh made food. The fried chicken and pot roast were divine. We had excellent service as well. I will definitely be back.

There were six people in our party. We had early dinner reservations on a Saturday night and were seated promptly. Each person ordered something different. Notable entrees - crab cakes, salmon and shrimp & grits. The key lime pie was tasty and the Public Knowledge signature drink was good, too. Overall a very good experience. I would recommend this establishment.
