My wife and I went to Public House for lunch recently while on vacation in area. The location is Warehouse Row area which is collection of shops and restaurants. The service was excellent.

Wife and I walked over from Chattanooga hotel. Picked this place based on reviews and locations and were not disappointed. Wife's cocktail was heavily poured, bisque entrees were flavorful. I had shrimp and grits , she had scallops, both very good. Finished with peanut butter pie and left happy and satisfied.

We met another couple for dinner at 5:30 on a weeknight. We were greeted warmly at the front door and promptly shown to our table. Our server was friendly and attentive. I opted for the vegetable plate (choice of 4 side items), and it was difficult picking just 4, as so many sounded wonderful! The serving sizes were large, and... More

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a great dinner yesterday. It was her first time and my second. She really enjoyed the building and the ambiance. The service was very attentive and the food was delicious. I like that they have small plate dinners because sometimes restaurants can overload your plate. The pork belly was very good. My girlfriend loved her... More

This place is just great. The food was amazingly delicious. I definitely ate too much. But when there's appetizers that melt in your mouth like the pork belly, and sides you must devour in its entirety like the crab bisque, what's a fella to do? My wife and I had several appetizers and cocktails plus entrees and a dessert and... More

Haven't been here in a while. When I have, 2-3 times, the food was always very good. It is owned by one of Chattanooga's restaurant entrepreneur families. They always do it right. The same owner has il primo in north chat. Definitely a good bet if you're downtown.

Dined here on a Friday night in mid November with another couple. Great service, Ghost is one of the best servers anywhere. Nice menu and everything made from scratch. Pot roast was fantastic! Will definitely return.

Food was absolutely delicious. Outdoor seating was nice. We went with another couple and we all were pleased. Two of us had fried chicken, one burger and one soup/salad. The sides were delicious also, tasted very homemade. Service was very good but a tad slow during busy lunch hour but worth the wait.

Thank Nick V
