Fabulous local restaurant. Server was knowledgeable about GF/Celiac issues and they had a good menu. I got the redwine pot roast that was really good and their creamy grits are to die for. Love their patio/porch and the inside was so pretty. Husband got grilled pork which was great too.

I recently had dinner here with several friends and it was wonderful. Ours was a rather large party and we were seated very quickly. We all shared fried pickles and pimento cheese. Our waitress recommended the pot roast so I ordered that. It was very flavorful and extremely tender. I was told it cooks for 18 hours! It was served... More

Love the food, the service, and the atmosphere of Public House. Highly recommend for local tastes, incredible flavor combinations, and overall wonderful service and attention. Public House is always our go-to for week day & weekend meals. On nice weather days, try out their patio - relaxing atmosphere here!

Great resturant and very elegant decor inside. Service was fast and efficient. Started with a real good pitcher of bloody Mary's. Then we ordered 2 starters and 4 small plates. The food was wonderful and each dish was special. The quail was good but the chicken livers were surprisingly good even though they were fried. The scallops and baby squash... More

We are in Chattanooga for Christmas break and decided to dine here at Public House. We had just arrived from Miami and had no reservations but based on reviews decided to try it. When we first arrived, the gentleman at the front was not very helpful and actually rude. As he left a young lady came up to us and... More
