Public house is a great place for lunch or dinner. We often go there when we are on a schedule, because the waitstaff are very attentive and listen when you tell them you are headed to a downtown concert or movie. Our go-to dinner there is the small plate petite filet and wedge salad, a bargain at $17, and just... More

My wife and I stopped in at the Public House for dinner while on vacation and traveling through Tennessee. We ordered the house salad with blue cheese, the veggie platter (4 mouthwatering sides), and the pork tenderloin cooked to perfection. Excellent food, a great bottle of wine (several on special that evening), impeccable service, reasonable prices, and a relaxing atmosphere.... More

We walked to the Public House and it was worth every step. We were seated in the bar area. They had an interesting cocktail menu and the atmosphere is comfortable with an historic twist. I had an "Alec Eiffel" Cocktail and my husband had Terrapin Liquid Bliss Porter. My dinner was trout with Squash Casserole. My husband had Fried Chicken... More

I had the pork belly and a Maker's Old Fashioned. The weather was warm, but not hot, so I ate on the patio. It was delightful and the waiter was very helpful with suggestions. Then, for dessert, I had the Creme Brulee. I will be back for a second helping next spring!

My husband and I came here with our family for lunch after we got married, and it was the perfect location. Such a cute, open restaurant and the food is amazing. Will come here again for sure the next time we're in town.

Made a return visit here with friends from out of town. When we made the reservations we requested patio seating, not guaranteed, but we got it when we arrived, first come first serve. You must try their devil eggs appetizer topped with sugar bacon.....really good. We had a variety from the menu, shrimps and grits, trout and braised pot roast.... More

I expected a really good beer selection from a "Public House" (and I was not disappointed) but I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It was excellent and it was presented in a very nice way. I will definitely stop by here on future trips to Chattanooga. The restaurant is quite convenient to the Chattanoogan Hotel.

The Social pub was a great place to sit and drink. Our bartender was Josh, super knowledgeable about all the different liquors in the place and really friendly! The beer list was big enough for anyone to find a favorite and the drink list was very diverse. Great place, check it out!!

Our first stop on an american tour was in Chattanooga and n day one we were visiting downtown, using the free trolley bus service to get around. We spotted Warehouse row and mistakenly thinking that it would be a shopping mall of outlet stores decided to stop there for a late light lunch. The shops were not to our taste,... More
