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,

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at Public House! David was an excellent waiter; very knowledgeable and personable. We got the trout and the pot roast. The food was so fresh and delicious. Southern comfort food with a modern twist. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Chattanooga.

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.

The food and service were excellent! We went there for our anniversary and because the tables are close together and other parties were very loud, it was difficult to have conversation.

We have been there many times and always love the food, the waiters we get,and our time there. This was a birthday gathering and they handed us a sweet card when we got there.
We didn't stay for dessert but have had their Carrot Cake in the past and love it.

Great food and great atmosphere. The service was very good. It was busy when we went for lunch so the server was a little slow to get around to us a couple of times. My wife enjoyed lunch so much we cut our dinner short at another restaurant to come back here for drinks and dessert. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in Chattanooga.

Wonderful restaurant. Started off with the wedge salad and then pork tenderloin with grits. I’m from the south, and I can say that their grits were creamy dreamy deliciousness. And the peanut pie was to amazing. A most to check out while in Chattanooga.

The best meal while in Chattanooga.... I had the pork tenderloin which was absolutely amazing. The minty lemonade was easy to sip down and in quickly requested another. Wonderful food and I would have visited again if we had been in town another night.

Always an excellent meal lunch or dinner! The fried chicken, roast beef, crab cake sandwich,
and the steak with creamy horseradish sauce are our family favorites. Creme Brûlée is
excellent and enough for two people to share.

We rec'd a gift certificate as an anniversary gift. We finally made the time to go there for dinner. It exceeded ALL expectations. Our reservation time was spot on, the staff fabulous ad the food so tasty. Cannot wait to return and bring out of town guests. If you haven't gone to The Public House, make your reservations (it was packed on the Saturday night we went). BRAVO!
