We stopped in for a light dinner and drinks during happy hour. Ordered the steak bruschetta and didn't expect it to be three pieces of flat bread, each with a nice size piece of grilled steak on top - it was awesome! The quesadillas were really tasty too, just not nearly plated as nicely. The happy hour menu offers half... More

Basically an expensive sports bar. was there on a sunday afternoon. Good thing it was nice so we could sit out side as it was SO LOUD inside. Food $$$ and good but not excellent. Just had an appy (over $ 10 for 5 crab&corn huspuppies) and salad ($15 for Caesar - small amount in large bowl) as they only... More

Very crowded because several conferences in town. Sat at the bar and still took about 10 minutes to get a menu. Food was ok. Grits were terrible; cooks used spoiled milk.

The restaurant was able to seat us immediately due to the fact that it is just mediocre. Ordered a beef brisket sandwich that sounded very appetizing. It was essentially a French Dip but the meat was dry and I had to pull out multiple pieces of meat that were inedible due to the grisle. The side salad was served without... More

We ate dinner and lunch here while attending a nearby conference. The menu is varied, the food very fresh and good. The wait staff is efficient but not particularly friendly.

Decided to stop in for a late dinner and some drinks and was pleasantly surprised. Food was very good, drinks were reasonably priced and the service was excellent. The char-grilled wings and filet sliders are very good. Lots of screens if you want to watch the games. The only negative was the music being too loud at times.

Just ate there with a couple of friends (we are staying in the timeshare around the corner). Menu selection is pretty reasonable and varied, Service was excellent and friendly (Amanda R) and the prices (again except for beer) were reasonable. Would recommend - only downside, they were out of their own OPS - how can a bar run out of... More

Had a great time at the Public House. Great mature crowd no problems. I went on a Friday night in August. They had a Live DJ. That played very good music. The bartenders appeared to enjoy their jobs. They danced while making drinks and the drinks were Awesome. I didn't have not one JUICED down drink. They have their own... More
