I usually only eat here for lunch - daily specials are offered, but I usually opt for the grilled chicken tenders. They are so juicy and savory. Mac and cheese, baked squash, grilled asparagus, heirloom tomatoes...you just can't go wrong here.

We chose this place because of it's rating on TripAdvisor, the menu selection, and the parking options. Right next store is a multi level parking garage. If you take your parking ticket, the restaurant will validate it and parking will be free. Also it seems that after a certain time of night the parking booths are not manned. I point... More

We walked here from our hotel near the waterfront to find a very quaint place booming with activity. Great casual yet refined ambience. Fantastic and attentive service throughout. Hubby went with the duck confit with Mac and cheese while I went for the comfort of the Pot Roast w/mashed potatoes. Superb!

Showed up at 6pm with a party of 10 and no reservations. They accommodated us in a private area off the bar. Very good food and a hip place to go.

This place is awesome. The food and drinks were amazing. The food was wonderful. We ordered the pimento cheese and fried pickle appetizer. It was delicious. Dinner consisted of fried chicken with Mac and cheese, pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy, seared sea scallops wire butternut squash, and vegetable shrimp pirlou. We ordered the praline caramel carrot cake. The... More

Ask for Leo! The veggie plate was delicious, as was the pot roast. Great food and ambiance—and cocktail menu.

We had mqny choices available to us for diiner with pur granddaughter in Chattanooga, but we chose the best. We arrived around 5:00 pm and the staff was getting organized for the evening meal. Even with that the staff was friendly and seated us right away. Magan, our knowledgeable server, greeted us quickly and explained the menu in such a... More

A friend and I we're in Chattanooga and plans were changed. Accidentally, ended up at Public House. The cocktails, Sangria and the grapefruit martini, were well made, delicious leading to a rare 2nd one. The food was well prepared, good portions for lunch. I had the petite filet and wedge salad. The atmosphere on the patio, welcoming on a warm... More

Cindy was our server. Friendly knowledgable and helpful. She knew her wines and was very accommodating of my dietary issues. My mothers Cabernet was fantastic (Justin something or other...whatever I don't know wine). Her trout was "perhaps the best piece of fish I have ever put in my mouth." We are from south Louisiana so that's high praise. I had... More

In the Warehouse Row portion of Chattanooga, this is a nice find. Close to our hotel, which did influence our choice as we like to walk, it would have been worth a Uber to get here. Intriguing combinations which all seemed to work! Only complaint was the tap water, much like our hotel it had a "earthy", read dirty, taste... More
