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.

We were treated to a delightful and delicious lunch at the Public House! I love trying new things and loved the trout, squash casserole, and beets with goat cheese-yum!
I even took a picture and sent to my daughters with my recommendation and put the picture on Facebook

Good food, but needs more seasonings. My Filet was good, just lacked seasoning. I suggest they get a better wine list in the "Red's". Our Server was great, and didn't rush us.

About 5.40 they turned the music up and then people had to talk over it. Salad was nice size but sides served with entre could have less starch, less fat, more green. Dessert choices needed a fruit dish.

Very nice bartender, Kevin was helpful. Mac and cheese, some of the best I've ever eaten. And you could taste the freshness of the trout, so good.

This is one of the best restaurants in Chattanooga. It’s not overpriced and I feel you can eat on the healthier side if you wish. Great vegetable offerings and the wedge salad is a don’t miss. Steak selections are great and we have had scallops and fish dishes. They know how to make a cocktail and have great cappuccinos. Eat outside if the weather is good!

Great date night!! We ordered the deviled eggs and pimento cheese appetizers - best I’ve had. I ordered my favorite entree - the pork Tenderloin, creamy grits and apple chutney. Can’t wait to go back!

Public House is a fantastic restaurant, one of our favorites. I will say the portions seem smaller than they used to be. The outdoor seating cannot be beat on a summer evening.

Good food. Service Ok but not great. Noisy. Overall the food is very good. While not a place for a special occasion, still a good place to eat.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening thanks in most part due to our knowledgeable Server, Matthew, who was very helpful with his suggestions. My picky husband said their pot roast was excellent. I can't remember when I ever had such a perfectly prepared trout and that is high praise from this trout fan. If you are a cocktail person prepare yourself for some delightful house specialties. It's all "special" at The Public House.

First time visiting. The scallop appetizer /small plate was delicious!! Scallops were tender and the succotash was very flavorful. We only ordered a burger and crab cake sandwich but both were tasty. Will definitely return again.

The food was great! The only thing is the shrimp and grits were very small and for $18 I expected more food. Our waiter was good & the drinks were delicious!
