The menu is something I've not seen before - great side plates and appetizers. Definitely a place to stop in and try. The cocktail menu is pretty sweet also. The mixologists have great ideas too for cocktails.

yummy food but very rich. sandwiches are good but the mac n cheese has too much blue cheese in it which makes it too rich. bloody marys are fabulous with a strip if bacon in the glass. there are no breakfast items on the menu, just lunch.

This place makes a great Kobe beef burger. They change their menu sometimes, which keeps it interesting, but they always have some variation of their burger. They cook it just right with all great toppings. Fun place to come for a quality burger and a nice cold beer.

You have to sit on the patio! Great atmosphere and loved the fire pits. The place was recommended by the hotel I was staying at and when I heard public house I thought it was a chain with bar food but they said they had good wine so we tried it. The prices were amazing $10 for a great 8oz... More

We saw good reviews for this restaurant so we decided to try it. At first we were a little dismayed at the prices for the food but the food turned out be be some of the most awesome that we have ever had. Good selections of draft beer and you can sit inside or outside.

The kobe beef burger was fantastic! I will return just for the hamburger! The drinks and atmosphere are great too! If you're looking for great food & live music in downtown Temecula, visit Public House.

This is a wonderful, fun place in Old Town. I have never had anything here that wasn't good but the Reuben is fantastic.

Good food costs more money. Period. When you go to restaurants that are cheaply priced, generally speaking they are feeding you cheep ingredients, not quality local sourced produce and organic products. PUBlic house represents the foodie revolution going on around the world right now, where people demand better when they eat out. Their menu changes twice a year, once in... More

Having lived in Temecula for 20 years I'm all about Old Town. Public House has always missed the mark. The food is to expensive for what you get, which wouldn't bug me if the servers weren't so pretentious. Probably a younger crowd joint which is a shame because it's the 50 something's that have money to spend. Other choices in... More

Loved this place................... when we finally found it! Was aware of it from Trip, but did not have the details with me and after driving up and down Temecula Old Town main street, as opposed to 'Main Street' several times, and looking for it up the side roads, I still could not find it. Parked the car and had a... More
