Overall, our experience at The Public was really good! Our waitress Gabby was so sweet and had some great recommendations for us. She always had our drinks filled and kept us entertained! The food was good. Everyone enjoyed their food. The watermelon sangria was really good. I tried my mom's shrimp & grits, while she really liked it, I felt it was a bit underseasoned. I was also kind of turned off by the big mint leaves on my plate of salad.... I figured they would chiffonade and distribute it evenly, but there's no way I would even taste mint unless I ate the entire leaf, and luckily I know what mint looks like, because I would imagine that someone who didn't would eat it thinking it was part of their salad. Bleh.
