We dine at this neighborhood bar/restaurant a couple times each month, and are always satisfied with our meals and service. Our last visit was to sample the Wed evening special of Chicken and Biscuits. Our servings were huge: a large biscuit, lots of white meat chicken, mashed potatoes, long perfectly cooked carrots, and tasty gravy. We could have easily shared... More

Have not been to this bar/restaurant in years, thought I would try a liitle dinner here, I ordered the buffalo chicken quesidila (sp?) really good, actually the best I have ever had, a lot of restaurants make this greasy, this was perfect! My friend had the same and she loved it too. I got my husband the cod fish sandwich... More

Great add to the Southside! Creative menu items and specials. I've had excellent salads and wings. On the downside, it can be a little noisy. -probably from the beautiful exposed old brick walls. Well worth the visit!

Had lunch here on our way to Florida. Nice choice on the menu, very pleasant service and the only glitch was the kitchen staff did forget part of my order. This was corrected and it was a very nice meal

Liked it when it was Southside Yannis but really like the the new menu under South City Publik House. The cheesey grists are great. I love the spicy shrimp, really enjoyed the meditteranean platter, too.

We went on on Monday for lunch. Food was great. Burgers and Speidies with perfect (requested well done) fries. Service was spot on. Only thing weird - flat tasting Diet Coke. Changed out for water - probably a better choice anyway. Note, for this part of town, parking is actually pretty good. Go - enjoy!

Such a nice South Side gem! With some renovations and a name change, also comes a new menu and some live entertainment! Every other Thursday you can here some amazing Jazz music (featuring Miles Ahead, led by Mike Carbone- sax player in Splash and head of the Jazz program at Binghamton University). The gaggle of TVs behind the bar are... More

I was a regular when this restaurant was under different ownership and I was happy to see that the cozy interior remained the same but the menu changed. Everything looked delish but I chose the roasted vegetable napoleon which was fantastic! It came with 2 sides and I chose cheddar grits (OMG so good) and sautéed spinach. The craft beers... More

My family ate here for dinner for the first time. The atmosphere inside is very cozy. The staff was very friendly and on point. This is what I like best about this place...the portions and prices are just right. Not too big or priced too high. We ate chicken chili, shrimp po boy, chicken spiedie cheesesteak and Mexican chicken melt.... More

Six of us decided to try this "new name" same restaurant for dinner. Two stars for the very nice bartender & waitress. The food however was awful. The shrimp appetizer was in some kind of greyish colored watery stuff with one tiny piece of soggy bread. The jalepeno's were obviously from a jar. Two of the diners got the pork... More

Suzanne C, Manager at South City Publick House, responded to this review

Though I'm happy to hear the service was a hit, we're obviously disappointed that the food missed the mark. We work hard to serve up some great dishes, and it's frustrating that didn't translate into an awesome experience for you. We hope you let us know while you were in that the food wasn't meeting expectations, as we love to... More
