Public House Downtown
If you are going to an event at Memorial Auditorium, a quick service venue for dinner is Public House Downtown. Lobster pizza was cheesey with small bites of lobster and my three small fish tacos had delicious mango salsa and spicy sauce. The coffee ice cream sandwich was so yummy that I will return for just dessert. Prices are normal for downtown and with a brisk walk you will arrive at your destination on time.
Nice brunch with my bf. Food was delicious and service excellent.
Food was great and had something for everyone. Service was almost non existent. Had to watch our food sit on counter for some time and some of it was quite delayed. Struggled to make a show even with almost 2 hours for meal.
Excellent location - just a short walk from the memorial auditorium where we saw a performance after dinner. Service was surprisingly very fast, and the food was awesome!
The lobster pizza was scrumptious! As were the buffalo wings, onion rings and fries! I will definitely becoming back to try other items including desserts. As for the cocktails....since the cocktail I got was thick on the syrup, I passed on trying other mixed drinks. I'll be sticking with a beer or wine next time. Otherwise, this place is worth visiting.
My wife and I went to the Public House on New Year's Eve. Public House is a casual place with a sports bar vibe. We found the service and the food to be both very good. I had the the spicy shrimp and chicken stir fry and my wife had the fried chicken and ribs combo. The food was well prepared, well presented and the portions were ample without being too much. Service was very good and all the staff were friendly. We would recommend Public House and would go back.
It's our first time here with coworkers and the food, service, quality, and ambiance was great. Will definitely recommend to friends and come back the next time we're in the area.
Went for brunch on a Saturday, it was full, but not too full. They had football on, which I didn't come for, but it was nice to have a noise level so that me and my friends can talk medium level and no one would really notice. The server was so nice and came just the right number of times to check on us. The food was great!! I had the prosciutto pizza and it was amazing. I want to come back for happy hour.
The salad was not as flavorful as it has been in the past.
The food was great and the portions were large. The food came out in a timely manner.
Some of our Food was cold, Mimosas were premise and 95% OJ... had to send it back
Doesn’t seem like they were ready for a large lunch crowd, took almost an hour and a half to get ordered, food to come, and get the check. The waitress was hustling, but this isn’t the first time I’ve had a mediocre experience.
Food was awful.
Got seated right away but no one came around with water or anything for some time, had to wait a lot for server between server visits to our table. But everyone was very nice and good food. Maybe just an off night. We’d definitely go back.
We ordered the Brandi Fried Chicken, Buffalo Chicken Wings and the Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
The one notable item is the Brandi Fried Chicken had a fishy odor that gave me the impression that the chicken was fried in the same oil as their fish.
Drunk dude yelling about John McCain the whole time
Greasy and uninteresting. Pub food at its mediocre best
First time visit, service was average, food choices were good so we will try it again
Came here for brunch...but the place seems better suited to happy hour. Food was adequate. Service was fine. Coffee was terrible, (and priced as though it were some kind of rare pour-over). The cocktails and salad at the table next to us looked incredible ... I think we just came for the wrong meal.
The service here was second to none. Our waitress had a great personality and the food was excellent. Wish we lived in the area. I would eat here often. Wish we had this place close to us in Illinois
Must try the fresh made pretzel ..it is huge a d best tasting pretzel I've ever had. Try it with the mustard sauce and caramel. The skirt steak salad was excellent...very fresh and steak flavorful and cooked just right. Server was friendly ...
Stopped at the Public House on our way to see The Drowsy Chaperone. Enjoyed the food and beer. Nice place for a TGIF!
Food was good. Good place to eat
This place is hands down one of the best places in Sacramento.
this place was great for and evening dinner. The portions were big and the beer choices were amazing.
This was our first time visiting Public House and we did so as recommended by Music Circus. We were not disappointed. The service was prompt and courteous, and the food was outstanding, prepared exactly as requested. We will certainly return to try more menu items and choose from their extensive beer selections.
This was our first time here and the food was great....in fact, their fries are amazing! The service was really poor, however. When i arrived to meet my friend, I was asked immediately if I was ready to order. I asked for a couple of minutes to look our waitress left and did not come back for nearly 30 minutes. We had to ask for more water. The food came out a short time later, piping hot and quite good. After briefly stopping by to see how every thing was, we didn't see our server again. We had to flag someone down to bring containers for leftovers and the rest of the dishes were never picked up. We were brought our check, made a request for more water and that the dishes be removed and were ignored. My friend asked to have separate checks but they never came and we decided to split up the one check ourselves. The server took the card and brought it back. She looked like she couldn't be bothered. I have not experienced this lack of service in many many years. Overall, the atmosphere was great, the food was terrific, but I couldn't recommend this place for anyone that expects good service. Too bad they don't take this seriously enough to train their staff better.
We had a nice meal...just happened to choose a night when there was an NBA finals game on and it was very noisy.
We thought the variety of food was excellent. If you are looking for a romantic night with a special friend, this is not for you; however, if you want a fun “pizza night” with an interesting menu, this place is spot. Try the French fries. The are perfect. Next time I want to try the lobster pizza with fontina cheese.
Very extensive menu that translated over to some delicious food. Noise level was very loud and it was difficult to hear each other at the table when trying to talk, but it was also busy. Would not have been as big of an issue of slower. The quality of the service was very good, however it was sporadic. There was long stretches of time in-between check ins from the staff where you’d not be able to order another drink/refill or ask for an item to go with the food. Staff were very friendly, though, when checking in.
Service was excellent. Food was good. I had an issue with my Eggs Benedict, twice. First the chefs had to remake it because they didn't put the sauce on the side & apparently rushed it. Rushed, not prioritized. One of the two eggs was severely undercooked, light pale yellow yolk with uncooked white. The other was a little better deeper orangier yolk. I brought this to the manager's attention so the chefs could be informed of the undercooked eggs. She ended up bringing me 2 more perfectly poached eggs (which was unexpected). They totally fixed the problem & even comped my entree. I will definitely go back.
We enjoyed the Firestone PH before the PINK concert. It was wonderful. I highly recommend the pizzas. The service was excellent and they accommodated us by allowing us to add 2 persons to our table and seat us outside. They have heaters outside which was perfect when the wind picked up. The friendly,welcoming atmosphere was perfect.
Food and service was great. My breakfast potatoes were cold, but the rest of my meal was warm enough.
Very attentive waitress. Table ready right at time of reservation. No waiting.
We made a reservation for 6 pm (Happy Hour ends at 6) and the waitress gave us the happy hour menu, so our server honored. Half price on many menu items and libations. Great service, food and just 2 blocks from the Community Center theatre. Perfect!
Firestone has a good Happy Hour menu and is a fun and lively place. My group had dinner off of the Happy Hour menu (pizzas, natcho tots) and all found the food and drinks excellent. My 3 stars for the service was not due to the quality of our server (he was very pleasant and as attentive as he could manage to be); rather, it was because the place was seriously understaffed for as busy as Firestone was that night. Food was slow getting out, and the few servers who were there were running themselves ragged trying to take care of customers. More staff was needed to keep up. But I would definitely go back.
Not bad! Good food, good time. Can be a bit loud. Would go back
Happy hour specials are amazing! Everything was delicious! We had the giant pretZel, fish and chips appetizer(which is the size of a meal), a pizza and 2 cocktails all for $35
Best happy hour in town
Great atmosphere if you like a sports bar theme. Food was delicious.
