“Love the chicken chowder”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

A great place for lunch on a cold winter day. The chicken chowder was delicious. The salad was great. My husband had the pimento cheese burger and loved it. Wished we lived here!

“Elegant Southern Cuisine”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

The Public House is an elegant restaurant serving Southern cuisine . As a vegetarian the options were somewhat limited. The veggie plate was delicious and quite ample. I opted for the trout special. The portion was big with good flavour. I will definitely visit again.

“Great Food and Reasonable Price”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Great location in the Warehouse Row. Very nice setting with varied menu. Our server Magan did an outstanding job. She was so knowledgable about the menu and ingredients. My wife has allergies so this was very helpful;

I had the homemade pimento cheese with sour dough bread and fried pickles. My wife had a cheeseburger with fries. This was a good value with ambience.

“Wow!!!! Amazing!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Wow!!!! What an amazing find! Sad is that we are not locally from here and will probably never be back.

The restaurant was a little hard to find since we are not locally from here so not familiar with the surroundings. The atmosphere and the decoration was refreshing. We were indecisive on all the great selections of "small dish" ie...appetizers, that our party of six decided to order five small dishes:

Pork belly
Breast of Quail
Fried Chicken Liver
Beef Carpaccio

Cheese Platter with 3 selections of cheeses.

We decided on 2 dinner main plates:

Duck Confetti
Shrimp with Grits

Quinoa Salad


Chocolate Cookies Banana Pudding
Chocolate Cheesecake

Wow!!!! What an amazing experience! The server were so patient and indulgent with us. Every bite was tastefully prepared. Even the side were thoughtfully prepared and full of flavors.

Only down side......they will bring a basket of rolls (very very good) only if you know to ask them for it. Even then, we didn't get an offer for seconds on rolls.

We are here in Chattanooga for 2 nights. We are actually considering going back to the same restaurant tomorrow night so we can try other items.

“Appetizer dinner”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Wife and i had a fancy meal here, and surprised our waiter when we didnt order a main course. Same main courses at every restaurant, but for fun we ordered 6 different small plates and appetizers and shared. Pork belly, cheese plate, deviled eggs to name a few. Spent less than 2 main courses and got tons of variety! walking distance from the hotel made this a prime spot!
