The kobe beef burger was fantastic! I will return just for the hamburger! The drinks and atmosphere are great too! If you're looking for great food & live music in downtown Temecula, visit Public House.

Good food costs more money. Period. When you go to restaurants that are cheaply priced, generally speaking they are feeding you cheep ingredients, not quality local sourced produce and organic products. PUBlic house represents the foodie revolution going on around the world right now, where...More

Having lived in Temecula for 20 years I'm all about Old Town. Public House has always missed the mark. The food is to expensive for what you get, which wouldn't bug me if the servers weren't so pretentious. Probably a younger crowd joint which is...More

The outdoor patio is very small. I'm not sure what the rule is, but I think it might not accommodate a dog well.

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!
