On Valentine's Day, my wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Public House, where we were delighted by their meatloaf and drunken mushrooms. The meatloaf was simply divine, tender, and bursting with flavor, while the mushrooms, soaked in a rich and savory sauce, were the perfect complement. The cozy atmosphere and the warm, attentive service made our lunch even more special. It was a simple yet unforgettable meal that made our celebration truly memorable. Thank you Public House!

This place is a hidden GEM! This was the first time I was able to get my husband in there and he was blown away. To hear they may be closing is DEVASTATING. I don’t know how people are not filling this place every hour on the hour. It is unlike any other restaurant in town. The food and the atmosphere feel more like an upscale Dallas experience.

We love Triple J Chophouse and Brew Co! The atmosphere is just perfect: Lubbock at its best. The employees are friendly and knowledgeable. The minor situation with the steak (it was too salty) was corrected immediately. Our waiter was so great to make our experience superior. He kept the drink refills coming and was attentive without being clingy. From the manager to the busboys, every employee greeted us and thanked us did coming in. It was a perfect night! I always take my out of town guests to Triple J and they love it like we do. It’s just quintessential Lubbock food and hospitality.

We were seated immediately even though I made online reservations for 15 minutes later. The food was delicious! The gift shop was way too crowded. Too many people and not enough space to comfortably look around. Overall, we would recommend others to stop here.
