Love this restaurant

Great food, service and atmosphere. The first night my husband had the heavenly pot roast and I had a light scallop dish and salad. After we ordered, we noticed they also had fried chicken on the menu. My husband was dying for Southern fried chicken. So, we decided to return the next night. We... read more

Ate here for dinner with friends while visiting Chattanooga. Amazing food, drinks, atmosphere, and service. Overall a wonderful spot to enjoy a comforting, southern meal with a unique drink menu. Laid back atmosphere and attentive service. Glad to have stumbled upon this gem.

Our server, The Crimson Ghost, was not only knowledgeable and attentive but hilarious. Had a lovely time. Food was delicious and priced reasonably for the quality. Great ambiance. Will most definitely return. Especially to sit on the patio in spring. Worth your time

While at the Warehouse Row area, we decided to try the Public House for dinner. We don't usually dine early, but did that Saturday and we got here when the restaurant was just opening. We were excited to try the Public House because they specialize in using local ingredients and we like to try new things when we travel. We... More

My server, Catherine was cool, delightful and intelligent. Came around just often enough to cover my every need. Arrived just after the lunch rush and consequently they were out of the daily special and fried chicken. Ordered the pot roast which was FABULOUS, as was the house lemon vinaigrette. Don't care much for bread but the little muffin was a... More

We had read many reviews about Public House having the best fried chicken in Chattanooga. So we decided to try it on a Friday night date night. We had to pay to park. We called and made reservations so we were able to get right in. We were sat near a hallway that connected the bar to the kitchen and... More

There are few times i will call out managers on a review forum like this, the manager by the name of Lou or Louis(not quite sure) accidentally tripped a wait staff member during our very nice dinner, he then yelled "Oh Sh**" and made it a big joke that he tripped him, we were currently on our appetizers(the paminto cheese...

The burger had this really nice char in the outside while still being juicy. The fries were fresh and delicious.really nice atmosphere. Free parking in the garage behind the restaurant (on a Saturday night) was convenient but a little known secret. We sat in their "social area" since the front was full/reservation covered. Same menu available in the bar area... More
