Description: PUBlic House roosts in the heart of Old Town Temecula among rustic...
PUBlic House roosts in the heart of Old Town Temecula among rustic, nostalgic buildings. Since 2009, we have served the finest fare in a truly unique restored home from the 1950s. PUBlic House is discreet at first glance. As you walk up to our hosts you only just hear the life music and busy, joyful activity tucked out back awaiting you. This aspect of PUBlic House always makes dining an intimate rendezvous. Whether you are having a sweet heart-to-heart in the patio garden or catching up with friends on the balcony, PUBlic House romances with charm. Our customers describe PUBlic House as "Chill" and "Funky Cool". It's true, Fridays through Sundays you will rock the rhythm of live music 'til the wee hours. Staff say Sundays are especially relaxing due to the clientele vibe and live acoustic music. Throughout the year, PUBlic House's patio garden remains relaxing with the hum of friends and family dining on fine food and drink that uncommonly delight them. You enjoy dining in many different seasons. So, in steamy summers the balcony and patio garden sparkle with mist. In winters we get it toasty with outdoor heaters and warm, rich menu items. Welcome to the family!

Fresh, Local Ingredients and Creative Food

We really enjoyed our dinner at Public House. They have creative food made with fresh, local ingredients. The staff was friendly and efficient, too. Portions are generous so go hungry!

We were part of a large group that made reservations for 11:00am, we had made clear we had to leave for our next destination by 12:30, but they did not seat us until 11:10am. We were seated with the sun shining on us because the roof louvres were slanted to the sun--when we asked to have them adjusted we were... More

One of our favorite restaurants! Great food, great service and a great bar! They have yet to disappoint us. Their service is always spot on and we love that most of their ingredients are local and they have local beverages! Our favorite dish is the Ruben but we always try new items as well.

Great restaurant! They have the best Reuben we have ever had. It's large and the corned beef is lean and piled on. Good selection of micro brews. Seating is outdoors or inside. Great atmosphere outside with fire pits and high back chairs and tables. We have been back many times and have never been disappointed.

My wife and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and we wanted to put ourselves near live but pleasantly soft music and reasonably priced food in an atmosphere that was unique, homey and friendly. Public House, set up in a re-purposed old home, was just the place for us. It was so homey and friendly, we almost adopted our... More

The food is soooo good! I love the specialty mac n cheese. They have some really good Belgian beers on tap too. Don't forget to try the rum creme brûlée. Sooo tasty!

The Pasta Di Nero was amazing, and the Whimm Mac N' Cheese was great too. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

The concierge at the hotel reccomended this restaurant and we bought her a bottle of wine to show our appreciation! Fabulous lunch and dinner menu which changes weekly. We were there for lunch and had a hard time deciding between the Kobi burger and the Reuben sandwich. Don't miss this sandwich! Share it with a friend as it is huge!... More
