If you live in Chattanooga and have never eaten lunch at Public House, you're missing something great! My wife and I have eaten here many times for both lunch and dinner, and we have greatly enjoyed every visit. But today, when I took my brother here for lunch (his first visit to Public House), I was reminded of something I... More

The food at Public House was out of this world. The homemade desserts made coming back night after night a must. A must eat at in Chattanooga.

This restaurant gets good reviews, has a wonderful looking menu, and is kind of a Husk wannabe, so we gave it a try. We liked the dining space and decor....light, minimalist, high ceilings, with several rooms winding in from the door, plus a outdoor space for when the weather is nice. The menu has starters, a bunch of great sounding... More

A family member was visiting from Texas. This is an elegant restaurant. The shrimp & grits special was ordered by three of us...the other two ordered the trout. Each dish was excellent.Parking tickets were stamped by restaurant(Warehouse Row parking lot).

The Public House is unpretentious as a full service restaurant with a very good menu. The atmosphere is such that a coat-and-tie or blue jeans and a collared shirt would not be out of place. The food is good and fairly priced and the service is friendly and reasonably efficient. It is located a bit out of the downtown area... More

we have to agree with the previous 'foodie' experience. The food is rather bland. we went for my wife's birthday celebration. her mac and cheese was so cold you could not cut through the cheese topping. the squash puree had no seasoning. pot roast was a very small serving, less than three ounces. the fried chicken was done correctly, so...

I enjoyed my meal with a friend during my stay in Chattanooga. The restaurant is a part of the indoor mall in downtown area. The decoration is elegant with the restaurant attached to their bar (the Social). The food was good, I had the Duck Confit and a cocktail. The staffs are friendly and I observed the big party next...

Easily the best lunch I have ever had. Had pot roast with beets and collard greens. We also had the chicken livers. Everything was absolutely amazing in taste and presentation. Even my sons chicken fingers were amazing in their presentation. The kids menu was written as a three course meal where the kid could choose their courses. So classy and... More

The last time we were in Chattanooga for the Enchanted Garden of Lights we didn't do our restaurant research and regretted it. This time I found Public House and made sure we arrived in good time for a Saturday lunch. The three in our party were very pleased. All the food was wonderfully prepared and presented and the vegetable sides... More
