Ate here for dinner and lunch. Both times are seated ahead of the wait time we were told. Food came fast. Menu is not super large and there was not a separate menu for lunch vs dinner. Would go again.

Fish tacos are a breaded fish finger in a tortilla with some bland condiments. Music too load to have a conversation. Don't bother.

Bar service was good one night but not up to scratch the next. Meals a large and filling. Very popular and service to midnight.

Dropped in for happy hour and they offered 1/2 off on apps and beer for $3.00 draft. Had wings and they were very good. Would definitely drop in for happy hour again.

As its name implies, The Public House shows off a pub atmosphere. The food, however, is elevated well above pub food. The menu is varied and the wine list varied. More than a bar.

Visiting Maryland from Colorado, you have to have some crab cakes, right? These did not disappoint. The food was creative and excellently prepared. We were there for Sunday Brunch / Lunch so the atmosphere was subdued, but we had walked past it the night before and it seemed very lively. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in... More

Ate here after a long day in DC. It was close to our hotel and it looked appealling from the outside. there is a nice menu selection. I wasn't that hungry so I just had buffalo wings. They were actually pretty good and I would order it again.
