I've never Blown Away by the food at Public House, but it's good enough that I've been multiple times now. It's a cool place and I would recommend it but it's not the best in Monroe.

We checked on your sight to see this local eatery to receive great reviews and a varied menu. The local beverages were cold and the food was deliscious! My husband recommends the PBJ Burger!!! Great service rounded out a nice dinner. Well done!!!

Very good and fairly reasonable. There are some some of the usual expected items on the menu, but also some unusual items. I had the strawberry champagne soup- excellent! Try something new- you'll like it! Wait staff attentive and helpful.

The food is Fresh and well-prepared. I wish the menu was a little bigger, would love to see a pork chop dish or maybe a pasta. The staff is super friendly and helpful.
