Always Good!

We live in Chattanooga and eat at Public House a lot. It's never disappointed. Well, okay. It did this past weekend. But in a good way. I love their trout and their squash casserole. They buy local and did not have either on our last visit which was 4 days ago. Service is always friendly... read more

Good diversity in this menu. The salads are very nicely done. Seating outside offers a street view on the quieter side of the downtown area. The micro-brew menu is also very good -featuring many local Chattanooga brewery offerings. The lunch specials vary daily and are diverse enough that you can have something new every day.

The place is very elegant and the service was good. It has some craft beer options on tap which was also nice. The wife had a mini filet and salad which she considered an ideal portion size. I ordered the strip steak which came with a large portion of creamed corn. Not sure I’d ever had that as a pairing... More

The fried chicken is always a good bet at Public House. The beats are a little tart and do not have the earthy taste that is typical. They also sprinkle goat cheese over the warm beets. The macaroni-n-cheese sux…don’t even go there, trust me. Tip: If the restaurant is full and there is a wait, check out seating in the... More

The service was really good. The food was outstanding and worth the price. The place needs reservations because it is always booked. located in the warehouse center and is worth it.

Excellent service, excellent value for the price, and the food quality surpassed our expectations. Think of upscale dining in a place where you can be dressed casually if you like and no one will bat an eye. Furthermore, children are treated well at this restaurant which keeps parents wanting to come back.

Who knew you could find a great hip place serving fried chicken, trout, burgers, steak, mac and cheese, biscuits with honey butter coupled with great salads and interesting appetizers in downtown Chattanooga. Food is fresh and locally sourced. Good wine list and cocktails. Kale salad was too vinegary. Service was knowledgeable and friendly though it was a little rushed. Decor... More

Great restaurant with upscale dining and great wine selections. Ate here with a large group of coworkers a few months back. Very fresh menu options, great appetizers and wonderful service. Highly recommend if you are looking for a fine dining experience in downtown Chattanooga, TN.

The Public House's ambition is to serve high quality food in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere....and the concept really delivers. We had a part of 8 for a birthday celebration, so I had a chance to experience a lot of the menu in one setting. For appetizers, be sure to check out the Deviled Eggs, the Fried Sweet Potato Pancakes... More

The sides all sounded so good that I got a veggie plate. The corn was wonderful, as was the quinoa. The squash was a bit bland and the mushrooms too vinegary. My friends ordered the pot roast, heirloom tomatoes, and quail - all of which were delicious. We had the smoke trout pecan spread as an appetizer and it was... More
