We had a lovely dinner at the Public House. The place is very allergy friendly. The food was amazing and locally sourced. Nice clean restaurant. Our server, Tom, was attentive and very pleasant. It was worth the detour.

I believe they are closed on Sunday- try Food Works on North Side or Tupelo Honey is in the same building as Public House and open until 8 on Sunday.

Yes they do- just ask for a gluten free menu- it's the standard menu highlighted with gluten free meals- be sure to tell them you need gluten free or vegetarian
