Great menu and service
Sunday brunch accepts reservations as well as dinner reservations are suggested.
Nice casual atmosphere-----menu changes seasonally----fresh local ingredients----
Great brunch items from eggs benedict, amazing beignets, loose leaf hot tea, cathead biscuits, chicken sausage and the list goes on!!!
Our breakfast was great! We all enjoyed our selections and our server Sidney was great. We always eat here when we are in town.
I've always loved The New Public House, but today disappointed a bit. I hope it was just an off day, but I won't know until the next time we go. Overall the food was good (minus the runny grits), but the service was just not great. We always felt like we were a second thought to our waitress who just didn't really seem to want to be there. She was distracted and spent little time out on the dining floor, but even without her being attentive, we were never without anything we needed. The servers in general seemed to be running all over the place, even though the restaurant wasn't super busy, so things just seemed unsettled and it wasn't the relaxing dining environment it's been in the past. Again, we'll return, but maybe not for a special occasion in case there has been a shift in the overall service of the place. It just wasn't the Easter Brunch we were hoping for.
Our service was excellent and the food was terrific!
Great family dinner on a Wednesday night. Love this restaurant. One of our favorites since buying a home nearby.
Way to noisy! Looking for quite dinner but could hardly hear my wife over the noise!
We ordered cocktails with our appetizer. Evidently bar was backed up and no drinks arrived. Otherwise, the food was very good and well presented. The staff was very friendly and efficient.
The interior design was very nicely done, food was great. Service was friendly and prompt.
We had a delightful dinner on Saturday night and were surprised at the ease of obtaining a reservation. Drinks, appetizers, main courses and dessert were well presented and delicious. Lots of variety. Ambiance was cozy and fun.
Consistent with great service and amazing food. Even the bread and butter is amazing.
My husband and I really enjoyed our meal. We had an early reservation and were alone in our little area most of the time, which was nice. The ambiance is rustic and I don't think I'd call it romantic but it was very cozy. The food was delicious, especially the meatloaf and the mashed sweet potatoes, and our server was excellent. She recommended the wine I ordered and it was very nice. The menu has lots of choices so I can definitely recommend this restaurant for both couples and families.
Sunday brunch. New item - Chesapeake Seafood Omelet. Lobster, scallops, shrimp, spinach, cheese omelet with side of breakfast potatoes - rich, healthy portion. Also, seafood enchiladas with two eggs served over a bed of red beans. Wow! Excellent and for a big boy appetite. Love the new menu additions. One of our local favorites.
The food was very good! Loved the bartenders and the managers! Our sever for dinner was horrible to say the least.
Good all-round restaurant; everything from burgers and hot dogs to upscale Southern cuisine. Nice interior. Average bar. Family friendly. Near center of town. Casual dining. Recommended.
The staff was great. Love the menu. Wine list is not the best but did enjoy their cocktail and beer selections.
Really nice place. Clean and quaint. Wait staff seem to be informed college types, working hard to please and make you feel welcome. Gumbo was excellent. Wednesday is half off wine!!
Wonderful Sunday Brunch during Winterfest weekend in Blowing Rock. This place is so charming!!! Food was excellent and our waiter (Fish) was so pleasant and helpful. Definitely want to go back!!!!!!
Food was great, service was pretty rough.
We are always well taken care of when we dine at The New. I let them know in the reservation that I would be having a business meal and that they may want to seat us away from other tables as to not disturb them. We were seated in a cozy separate room with a fireplace. It was wonderful. Food is always lovely as well as the staff!
Excellent food, service, & atmosphere!! Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!!
Our favorite location for New Year's Eve each year. But book it early in the year or you may find that there are no reservations available.
Great fun and wine at a very good price point for a special Mom and daughter night out.
Good food and menu but dining is crowded and loud especially in the front rooms. The front dining room is at the front door and directly across from the bar. Very cold and noisy.
Had a wonderful time, waiter was super nice and efficient
Food was very good, Very happy they had open table during a busy ski weeekend. Other places had 1-2 hour waits
We were able to spend an enjoyable snowy evening with the team at the New Public House. The food was quite good and the server was very attentive. They had some interesting menu items that were good on the palate. We tried their nachos and were happy happy. Their mainstay is the meatloaf which was delightful. All in all a very good meal!
The food was fantastic! The service was great, quaint and quiet.
Great find....I had only been here for local's night which brought me back and I was not disappointed. Great menu, friendly staff and good atmosphere! I will definitely be adding this to my go-to list of great spots in Blowing Rock!
Disappointing and not nearly as good as in the past. Seems like menu has been "dumbed down."
We wanted to love this since we have a home in the area. The food was solid but not outstanding. Our server was attentive but overall the restaurant was not what we had hoped. Smoke from the kitchen greeted us as we arrived- just one example. There are no personal seats in the room.
Cute place with friendly, welcoming staff
Visiting on vacation from Florida.
Great follow up and a potential miscommunication. That’s The New we thought we knew!
All was very good except for the service. Our waitress had another table that was a large group. Our group of 4 (2 couples) were an after thought. Very disappointing.
My husband and I had dinner at the New Public House while visiting Blowing Rock. We started with the Chicken Livers, and I ordered the crawfish enchiladas and my husband had the lamb burger. Everything was prepared perfectly and was delicious! Service and cocktail list was good as well. We will return.
The new lunch menu is mostly burgers. First experience was good so we returned with out of town guest. Not so great second time. Burgers were over cooked and dry. We all order medium rare except for one rare. The rare was delivered to the wrong person and might have passed for medium, others were well done or more. The fries also disappointed being tepid. We love the night menu and always come about once a week so this was a disappointment.
Consistently great food. Service is top notch. Local’s Night (Thursdays) has some great wine and beer deals - even if you’re not a “local”!
Great menu (I had a lamb burger) and service! Bar area is cozy while waiting for your table.
Menu is different so check it out before you dine.
Great service. Loud atmosphere. Food comes out very quickly. Good spot for a decent dinner in town.
