I went here with a group of 30 for a business dinner. The food was decent, but I was not overly impressed, calling it average. What surprised all of us was how slow the service was, especially on the drinks. I have never been someplace where we actively needed seek out the waitstaff to refill our beers and wines, considering... More

Went for a quiet dinner with my daughter and was seated right next to the door in a near empty dinning room. After ordering a glass of wine and a coke our waiter disappeared and quickly return with my wine, but the coke was never delivered. After asking twice for the coke it was finally delivered and never refilled. I... More

We held a business dinner at Public House with some folks who were from New Orleans so they were used to good food. The restaurant didn't disappoint and delightfully surprised with great tasting dishes like the grilled broccoli. If you aren't normally a broccoli fan you will be after you try this dish! The wait staff was very attentive and... More

We came across this restaurant by chance on a short trip to Chattanooga and were very impressed with the service quality of food and value for money. We had been travelling around the southern states so had had our fill of gumbo, but the gumbo on offer at the Public House stood up with the best of them. We also... More

We loved our server David and even the server who brought my daughter's food was friendly. Wine was good and cheese plate delicious. Main entrées were great and my creme brule was delish.

We were able to sit outside on a beautiful summer evening that felt every bit like fall! A great atmosphere if you have kids on your dinner date because it gives them room to move and a view of Market street, which kept my son entertained. Good food. Would definitely go back!

We had out of town family visiting from Memphis and we like to show them Chattanooga at night and also during the day. We had been sight seeing all day and wanted somewhere we could sit and unwind. My oldest daughter suggested the Public House. We where about 20 minutes away and I was not sure if it was a... More

Reserved a table for 10. They put us in a private nook. Great space to visit with friends away from the crowd. Food was wonderful! Desserts- a bit of a miss. The banana pudding was unusual, Peanut butter pie was too rich for our taste. Could have served the entire table. but everything else was perfect. Wonderful server.

We only spent one night in downtown and we asked our bellman for his recommendations. We looked up the menu and quickly settled on PH. We were seated right away at 7:30. Menu is very much Farm to Table. We shared a wedge salad and an appetizer of the seared scallops. Scallops so fresh and tender that I'd order as... More
