We regularly come here for fries and beer and dinner on occasion esp when we want to take our friends from out of town for great food and show them the best of what Temecula has to offer. I love this place! The food is top notch with a seasonal menu that keeps the menu from being stale. They always... More

Ordered dill and goat cheese appetizer was tangy and delicious. Fries were crispy on outside and tender soft potato on inside. Hubby had Kobe black and red burger was juicy and delicious. I ordered Honey that's pretty corny salad and added petite New York steak with honey chipotle vinaigrette. Not for the faint of heart. Very spicy. I love spice... More

Our server was very knowledgeable. We started with the goat cheese toast with honey and a green salad. It was great. I had the salmon special and it was lovely. Another person at the table had the Scallops and we also had the hamburger. Everyone was very happy with their meal. Our server offered us dessert and named the choices.... More

Had the Kobe burger and asked for medium. It was served medium rare. My daughter had an unexpected allergic reaction to either the fish or the tarragon infused vegetables and management never offered to bring a different dish. The one food worth visiting the restaurant is their Public fries. Don't ask for catsup. You won't need it.

Came here on a Saturday after wine tasting. We didn't have to wait to sit inside, the patio was a little busy. The staff was very friendly. The food was good, we ordered a bunch of appetizers. The Mac and cheese was amazing. The goat cheese today was good, as well as the brussel sprouts. The only thing I did... More

We took our daughter here because she chose it for her anniversary dinner. She said it was a unique restaurant with really good and reasonably priced food. She was right on all accounts. We set outside on the patio and it was simply delightful. The atmosphere was pleasant and our server excellent. All their entries are unique so we chose... More

We were happy to have a new option for food and drinks. Environment is a little more formal/classy. The food menu is also a little toward the fine dining side. They have some signature cocktails and some good beers on tap. Seating is a bit minimal and parking can be a task on busy days. A few outdoor tables have... More

Have eaten here many times. There is a varied menu of vegetarian fare or dishes with meat, chicken or fish. I tried the mushroom burger with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions ( I requested them). The dressing on the burger was out of this world. The atmosphere is pleasant and casual. Outdoor seating is available. Excellent staff.

Another incredible find. We went during brunch. Our waiter, Caleb, was great and walked us through the menu. Bottomless mimosas and some really cool Bloody Mary's started things out. My wife's eggs Benedict was perfect as was my curried chicken salad sandwich. I also had their homemade cream soda. Outside dining available year around and musters make it very comfortable... More

Description
PUBlic House roosts in the heart of Old Town Temecula among rustic, nostalgic buildings. Since 2009, we have served the finest fare in a truly unique restored home from the 1950s. PUBlic House is discreet at first glance. As you walk up to our hosts you only just hear the life music and busy, joyful activity tucked out back awaiting you. This aspect of PUBlic House always makes dining an intimate rendezvous. Whether you are having a sweet heart-to-heart in the patio garden or catching up with friends on the balcony, PUBlic House romances with charm.

Our customers describe PUBlic House as "Chill" and "Funky Cool". It's true, Fridays through Sundays you will rock the rhythm of live music 'til the wee hours. Staff say Sundays are especially relaxing due to the clientele vibe and live acoustic music. Throughout the year, PUBlic House's patio garden remains relaxing with the hum of friends and family dining on fine food and drink that uncommonly delight them. You enjoy dining in many different seasons. So, in steamy summers the balcony and patio garden sparkle with mist. In winters we get it toasty with outdoor heaters and warm, rich menu items. Welcome to the family!
