The Public House is fantastic. Our server, Kristi, was spot on. The Tomato Neapolitan was amazing as were the Shrimp and Corn Fritters. The Pimento Cheese BLT WOW!! Loved the local feel as the servers and Bartenders knew everyone. We will be back fir sure!!

Came here about 1 years ago & didn’t really remember it. Met a friend for drinks & apps last week & loved it! Ended up getting the California burger and it was delicious! Great beer selection, comfortable bar area, great staff & free parking (minimal...parking available). Will def return!More

It's not directly on the water, but the Coleman Public House is within easy walking distance of Shem Creek and prices are reasonable compared to eateries found on the water. So if you don't need great views while you eat, stop in here and enjoy...some great food. I had some local seafood at a downtown restaurant the day before, so I opted for a burger here. My burger was big, juicy, and tasty - exactly how I like my burgers. As an added bonus, it was also less than a mile from my hotel. Highly recommended for a great spot for dinner and drinks in Mt. Pleasant.More

Consistent with many other reviews I read here before going, this place had unexpectedly goof food given its simple strip mall appearance. I had the arugula salad with salmon, and others in my family had burgers and entrees - all were delicious and attractively presented....Masks seemed to be worn inside but not outside (we ate outside).More

Following a visit to Patriots Point, we decided to have lunch before heading back to downtown Charleston. Coleman Public House, despite its underwhelming strip shopping center exterior, was a very good choice. The servers were very attentive and pleasant. We ordered a variety of appetizers...and meals, and none of it was unremarkable. In short order everyone was sampling each others food. My personal favorite was burger, along with the Aloha Fries; but every one at our table raved overt their choice.More

I ordered the Fish n Chips w/a Sycamore Mountain Candy IPA Draft beer (excellent). My wife ordered the California Burger (one of the best). Nice casual pub environment, clean, COVID protocols were in place (hand sanitizers on each table), plenty of seating inside and outside,...easy to get to with plenty of parking. Service was outstanding, all staff members were extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations. The food portions were good and delicious, we would return!More

We stopped here for lunch. We got the California burger. It was amazing. It may be the best burger I’ve ever had. We had a Cobb salad and the spinach and crab dip. Both of these were good. We couldn’t, however, find crab in the...spinach dip. We would go back for the burgers. Very nice staff.More

Great place to eat! We had our dog so we could eat out on their patio. It was also chilly and they turned on their heat lamps. They chicken gyro was great!
