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,
Nathan Lindley

    Excellent meals-pork tenderloin, shrimp and grits, trout…and TN whiskey chocolate cheesecake were exceptional. Very good service. I can’t imagine anything but a wonderful experience at The Public House. (Park in Warehouse Row Garage and have your parking ticket validated, for free parking.)

    We had a nice intro with Mikala and good server, Rhyianna. Started at table 19 and wound up at 64. The trout was very good. Would prefer to have the option of grits. Pat’s potroast was good. Beets and goat cheese was plentiful. Keep your plates heated!

    Our waitress Shanna was so so great and helpful and friendly! She gave us great recommendations for dinner and for Chattanooga. Loved that she chatted with us a bit about what we were up to and what she was up to. We had a party of 8 and all of us said she was one of the coolest waitresses we’ve ever had! And of course the food was fantastic. We all had a difficult time deciding what to get because it all sounded so good. Ultimately none of us regretted what we got but we were all itching to get a bite of everyone else’s plate. We were too full for dessert at the restaurant but decided to get some to go because dinner was just so good. Overall just a great experience!

    Never been to Chattanooga. The Public House gave us an incredible first impression. We are foodies. This food was high end comfort, gourmet home cooked. Service like a swanky exclusive place. Clientele at surrounding tables ranging from dressed up to casual. The sounds while dining were pleasant and did not drown out our ability to have a conversation.

    We were treated very graciously. Our table wasn't ready at our reservation time and the hostess invited us to the lounge and bought us wine. We got our table within 15 minutes after arriving. The ambiance, service and food were wonderful. We had beef filet, quail, mac and cheese, and trout. The wine list was large. Each meal was cooked to perfection. Wished we lived in Chattanooga so we could go back frequently.
