We received our drinks but 45 minutes later, no food. "There was a massive carry out order right before your order was placed." Well what about all the tables surrounding us that came after and received their food and had time to eat it? Being forgotten and then lied to makes for one unhappy customer. Not likely to be back.... More

Originally went when it was Sullivan's Irish and enjoyed it. Now that it is an English style pub - this Irishman still enjoys it. Pretty decent food, can be noisy so hard to carry on a decent conversation below shouting level when crowded (which is most times). Good beer choices - offers a unique experience to Peoria as a true... More

I was on business and asked some locals wherected to eat and Publik House was on the top of the list. Wonderful and lively atmosphere on a Monday night. The wait staff was terrific explaining every detail responding to my questions. The Bloody Mary was one of the best I have ever had, food delicious and reasonable. I would definitely... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday night and sat out on the sidewalk. Service was prompt and nice. The burgers we had were tasty and I had parmesan truffle fries which were excellent.

We have been to The Publik House twice. Our first visit was for Sunday brunch. The food was much better than average pub food. There was a good selection of drinks and beer.

My daughter and I were in town visiting family and we all went out for dinner. My daughter is vegetarian and liked the menu. We ate inside and the decor and vibe is very cool. The irish nachos are insane. We asked if the candied bacon (omg) could be placed on one side of the nachos and it was an... More

Went out for a Sunday drive, the original restaurant we were going to stop at for brunch was closed so we drove around looking for somewhere to eat in an unfamiliar area. We drove past the Publik House and noticed all the people eating outside. We turned around to check it out and were not disappointed. The place is TINY... More

Nice atmosphere, more like a bar or pub than a restaurant. Very good food was served (fish and chips were delicious) and also good beer on tap made the evening perfect!

Each time I'm in Peoria I have to go to this place. The atmosphere is absolutely relaxing with an excellent service. Great selection of different beer The food is excellent too. I tried different dishes and was never disappointed! My favorites are the fish and chips, bison burger and the PHPP. I will definitely come back.
