“Nice atmosphere, good local brew on-tap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Traveling to atlanta for a conference at Georgia Tech. With a local friend, we stopped by the publik for a few beers. Nice atmosphere, and good bartender. While it seems that ATL likes the IPAs we had a really nice stout, called a Breakout Stout, from Jailhouse brewery. They even kept the kitchen open a few minutes after the time for us. We had the wings that were strikingly average

“Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Our service both times we went was great. The food was so delicious. The salmon BLT was excellent & I don't usually order seafood when I dine out.

“Don't go when the FOX has an event”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Recently dined at Publik. Unfortunately, we chose a Saturday night when the Fox Theater was having an event. The place was packed which put a tremendous strain on both the wait staff and kitchen help. Our calamari came out cold, the salad dressing was watery, and our entrees were similarly cold. While the food was not bad, it wasn't anything terrific and given the pricing was a poor value. Our family of four's bill was $120.00 and that didnt include any alcoholic drinks nor dessert.

In all fairness, we went to eat as a family and did not partake of the bar scene, so I can not comment on that.

“Great Burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We stayed at the Georgian Terrace and noticed how Publik was always packed with locals. So on our last day, we stopped for lunch before we went to the airport.

I had a fabulous burger and bloody mary. The food was delicious and I thought the price fair. Staff were friendly, and seated us in an area that accommodated our luggage.

“The food was as bad as it gets, the bar was excellent as wa the service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

My wife and I ate dinner at Publik before the Fox Jerry Sienfeld show. The atmosphere is very good, the beer and wine was good, but the food was so bad we couldn't eat it. We had burgers, fries and Calamari for appetizer. The saice radted like watery ketchup. Absolutely terrible. We returned our burgers and they brought back the same ones now burnt to a crisp, with torn up rolls. The service was very friendly. No offer to take anything off our bill. At least the beer was good.
