One of the best burgers EVER

This restaurant was recommended by a local and did not disappoint. The burger was cooked perfectly and lots of flavors. The Brussels sprout appetizer was recommended as well - I don't like Brussels sprouts but this was awesome. Grilled beautifully with balsamic sauce. Service was very friendly.

First time here and the cheerful hostess rightfully suggested the back patio. Quite a few tables amongst fire pits, a waterfall, and an outdoor bar. Space at one end suggested that live music played later. All servers were pleasant and after chatting with ours, she said that our chosen appetizer and entree could definitely be shared by the two of... More

I can only comment on the burger and the dessert as that is what I ate here. However, I have to say it was one of the best burgers I have ever had. Just done right, and the fries it came with were delicious as well. A bit pricey for a burger at $16.50 but damn good. Also had the... More

Although we visited the Public House a while ago I still remember how good the food was and entertainment was top notch.

This is listed as a "Gastropub" but was far better than others I've been to. The menu had a good variety and the portions were very satisfying (and I can eat!). I had a Kobe style beef burger (no fillers, all beef) which was served on a bun, with onions, horseradish, cheese and some other stuff. Delicious does not even... More

Located in old town Temecula, this restaurant is a gem for a casual dining. One of the best meals I have ever had. The portions are fit to share, from appetizers to main dish, so generous they are. We had the Romaine Edged Out salad - a perfect balance of citrus and sweet seasoning, and lightly grilled (never had something... More

The outdoor patio is a great place to dine. Food is great with a diverse menu. On weekends there can be bans playing so it's hard to get a seat.

My husband and I came here for dinner. We shared a ceasar salad. Which was very good and garlicky, and I had the wild mushroom pasta, which was excellent, and he had the kobe burger, also excellent. The flavors are well balanced, and leave you satisfied, and the portions are substantial.

Public House offers an eclectic blend of modern takes on traditional fare, as well as a great variety of ever-changing microbrews on tap. Local entertainment on evenings and weekends mixed with the always dependable climate of Temecula Wine Country, Public House is a great place to meet up with friends, or just show up and make some new ones!

We ordered a burger and pasta, which while admittedly delicious, took 90 minutes to arrive because our waitress misplaced our ticket and failed to correct the error despite us asking numerous times. The wait was as long as that sentence. They gave us half off, but a 2 1/2 hour sojourn was not the lunch I wanted. We shan't return.
