This place was recommended to us by our hotel valet (CJ at The Edwin). The food was delicious! The scallops were the best we've ever had, and recommended by our server Sophie. We also had the pimento cheese appetizer, which came with fried pickles unbeknownst to us. A scoop of pimento cheese on a fried pickle slice will change your life! Also had the filet and wedge, and cut the filet with a fork. This place will definitely be a repeat! We were celebrating my birthday, and there was a nice card at our table when they seated us.
Always amazing food!
Excellent local restaurant in downtown Chattanooga.
As always...Public House was wonderful!
It was great to celebrate another event at Public House! We have frequented the restaurant for several years. The food is always good.
We have never had a bad meal or poor service at Public House. I’m always confident to take people there for Lunch Dinner or just cocktails.
Great food and environment. Really nice place and it was awesome.
Always great food and a great experience when we go to Public House!! Favorite restaurant!
The staff is always so friendly and accommodating!
Had a great meal and our waiter Matt H was great.
We had a lovely time sitting outside and enjoying the craft cocktails. The food was excellent, the pot roast a particular favorite, and it was accompanied by outstanding service. One of my favorite places in Chattanooga. I highly recommend this this place!
This was our first experience with Public House, but it will not be our last. Great comfort food with a flair. Everything we put in our mouths: proteins, veggies, beverages, and dessert was 5 star. Servers were professional, friendly, and attentive. Again, we will be back!
We understand COVID-19 has created many challenges for restaurants. However, if we are willing to come out & support local restaurants, they need to be ready to provide a positive dining-out experience. This includes properly training servers (it's not ok to reach across guests, 2 of 5 orders served were incorrect), proper sanitation procedures (our table was way too close to other diners, our server pulling on her face mask/touching her face, dirty glassware) and ensuring quality of food (shrimp that smelled so fishy it was not edible). Public House is one of our favorites and was our "go-to" place but unfortunately, we won't be returning until the kinks of re-opening are worked out.
My husband, in-laws and I went for my birthday and had a great time. We were seated right at the time of our reservation, had great service and the food was delicious. My in-laws are very picky eaters and they loved their meals. Desserts were also fantastic.
Celebrating my son’s graduation. Our experience was great.
Fantastic as always!!
First time visiting Chattanooga, here for my birthday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the whole dining experience this evening!
First time out to a restaurant since restrictions started to ease and was pleasantly surprised how the staff made the experience easy and normal. And the food was good too!
The food is consistently delicious. We ALWAYS dine here when we’re in town
Great food and service! We will definitely dine there again.
This was a restaurant we were excited to visit in Chattanooga. however in the end we were a little disappointed with both the menu and the ambience of the place. just didn't feel right I felt like I was at a glorified meat at 3:00 to be honest. Although the food was very good it was still simple and somewhat plain but maybe that's what they do. We enjoyed the experience and will probably go back but I don't think it's nearly as good as it should be.
In general it was a very nice experience . Our waiter was super nice but struggled a bit with the wine selection, brought us the wrong wine. Also we ordered a side of collard greens, in stead of collards we got Brussels sprouts. Twice. I guess the kitchen did know the difference between the two.
We ate then
Anyway and had nice laugh. Don’t worry, we will be back. Love the place.
Wonderful food and service!
Fantastic place. A true upscale offering with a casual atmosphere. A hidden gem in Downtown Chattanooga.
Was a bit too noisy for us...
But everything else was great! Appreciated our waiter's recommendations and help!
Heard about how great Public House was from several of my friends who dine there semi-regularly. I went in with high expectations, and left with those expecations filled. Great experience. Red wine braised roast beef and potatoes with gravy was fantastic. Service was perfect and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Will be back for sure!
I loved the menu's focus on seasonal veggies and local proteins and all of our meals were absolutely delicious. The service was some of the best I've ever had. It was quite loud on a Saturday night at dinner time, but not obnoxiously so. We'll definitely go back!
Food was terrific. The greens salad was fresh and delicious. The fried chicken was a light and sweet batter. The white meat was most importantly.....moist.
As usual, the food was excellent. Our server made knowledgeable recommendations when asked about both drinks and entrees. We were a little early for our reservation but were able to be seated immediately.
The restaurant has a great interior design and ambiance, the food was good, and the service was attentive. At no fault, to the restaurant, my date and I felt overwhelmed by the high noise level of the other guests and found it a little hard to talk. Otherwise, it was a great dining experience.
The food was outstanding and the service was great....great value for what we paid
Very nice cozy vibe great service friendly staff and delicious food !! It a very nice area of Chattanooga also!
The food was amazing and we loved our waitress Evelyn
The pimento cheese starter is a must. I had the fish of the day. They knocked it out of the ballpark. The whiskey selection was spot on. Incredible value overall.
We celebrated our anniversary at Public House during a trip to Chattanooga! Excellent service, great vibe, and incredible food. Our experience was personalized and the manager had a handwritten note and some discounts for us to celebrate the anniversary!
Our portions were all generous and delicious: smoked trout appetizer wedge salads, fried chicken and pot roast! And our server paced our meal perfectly. All food was served to us at the exact correct temp- hot food was really hot and cold was definitely cold. Great attention to detail by both the kitchen and front of house staff.
Great food— hubby loved the duck confit, I thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp and grits. Wedge salad was delicious. Loved being able to pop over to The Social for post dinner drinks. Will return when back in Chattanooga.
Great culinary experience. Very broad menu that allowed you to venture outside the box. There were some some classics on the menu that were executed perfectly.
Loved our server! Food was great! We had a drink at the bar afterwords. Loved the atmosphere.
