Food is good, atmosphere was a little, 'uh', but I think that had more to do with it being empty. We'll go back though...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the food and will be back. Winter time in Roxbury can be slow except for skiiers- it is our off season especially during the week. Its much more lively on Friday and Saturdays and throughout the week during the summertime. We look forward to seeing you again. More

Lots of vegetarian options. Always nice to be treated like an old friend when you go to a restaurant.

We stopped here on the first night of our "mini moon" that we were spending at the Roxbury Motel (walking distance). The staff was very friendly and we loved the dishes - pizza and soup as a starter, and then shrimp fra diavlo and ravioli. It was a great start to our weekend.

We dined at the Public Restaurant while staying at the Roxbury Hotel. The food was very good, so was the dessert. The waitresses were very nice. Only complaint, I wish rolls were warm.

After having dinner here each evening of our four day stay at The Roxbury next door...I can say, once again, that this place consistently has a great, relaxed, fun vibe with excellent drinks and great food! Perfectly cooked tender flat iron steaks, flavorful pasta dishes and amazing parmesan onion crostini ! Just can't get enough of that and still trying... More

We stayed at the Roxbury Motel and walked to the Public Lounge. The atmosphere is good and the drinks were generous. We met two groups, others staying at the Roxbury and locals. We found out what was going on in town, and there is way more than you would think, and the fellow travelers from the Roxbury turned out to... More

Reservations are highly recommended on the weekend. We had a party of 6 at 8 pm on Saturday with a reservation. Table was ready. Half the table ordered cocktails that were all named silly. None of us liked them. Two others got a beer and those were good. Food was average. Choices were limited. And slightly over priced. Very loud... More

Thank you so much for taking time and reviewing. We are aware that the restaurant gets very loud especially on weekends when we are full. We are in the process of "sound proofing" in order to help the noise levels. As for your table- I'm sorry you we're unhappy with where we seated you. That table is our largest and... More

We stayed at the Roxbury and headed over here one night for dinner. We made a reservation, and I'm glad we did; it's a smaller place and fills in very quickly. We had to wait a few minutes for our table, but since the bar serves such great cocktails we didn't mind. The service was attentive even though the dining... More
