My rating on the food is a little limited as I met two friends here in late afternoon but had already eaten lunch earlier. So I had only limited input as to the food choices and did not eat much, nor did I drink any...of the beer. The Ozark mushroom pizza was the highlight of the meal for me, with very flavorful mushrooms. The pretzels were somewhat underwhelming (and the first batch came out completely cold) and the kettle chips were no different from what I get out of a bag, in my estimation. I will give the restaurant credit in taking better than average pandemic precautions. The staff tending the bar wore masks, stayed behind the plastic partition, and they were scrupulous about putting on gloves before touching any food or beverage item. They don't refill water cups, but they will give you a new one. Most everything was served on disposable ware. Seating was limited to promote distancing. From what I could see, they did not require customers to wear masks.More

Stopped in for a happy hour Tuesday brew. The stouts and the IPAs are delicious and the wait staff is incredibly friendly as well as efficient. Great experience!

Great service, fast and friendly. Food was very tasty and the beer went down smooth. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to wind down at the end of the day, just a real fun time with a great ending!

Do not miss checking out all the Public House has to offer i you are coming through Rolla, MO! The staff is super friendly and welcoming, the art on the walls and in the restrooms has to be seen to be believed and the food...at Public House is magnificent!More

This place has the BEST beer! Both the Rolla and St. James locations have a fantastic atmosphere and offer different events at both locations such as live music and outdoor movies.

A good selection of their craft beers. Overall menu was good, but we would suggest adding burgers (which they have at their location in St. James). This was a Saturday night and they had live music, which happened to be bluegrass on this night--we were...good with that. Food quality is above average, but could be better. They have an area for patron to play games, which is really cool.More

Great patio. Shared with the winery next door. Bring your dog. Get the Smoked Trout Fritters. They were delicious.

The Reuben was okay. The sauce indistinguishable, sauerkraut bland and the corned beef was not slices but rather some sort of small square chips. Don’t order if you think you’ll be getting a real deli style Reuben. Pizza was okay. Crust was very thin and...crispy, almost like a cracker. Unremarkable. Had an IPA and that was very good and tasted true to the menu description. Service was friendly and prompt. Very nice atmosphere inside. Clean restrooms.More

Wow. This place is a real find. The food was excellent. We had the Tuscan Chicken Sandwich and the Marguerita pizza. This was not pub food - it was chef- inspired thin crust pizza and a panini with locally grown ingredients. To top it off...we tried the caramel waffle dessert! We were absolutely impressed. It was a wonderful experience.More

Stopped in Rolla on our trip to Arizona- this brew pub is east of Rolla in Saint James, about 20 from Rolla, where the original brewery is still open, but with a smaller menu. We really liked the atmosphere of this larger space and love...the locally sourced food!!!More
