We went for dinner. Needed a place where we could talk for hours over good food, and we were happily accommodated by the staff. The burgers were great!

Was staying in Roxbury for the night and went to Public Lounge on our fiends recommendation. Nice place, good food and an awesome dinner of ribs. The reason I felt compelled to write a review was how friendly and welcoming the wait staff was. We felt like we were regulars. Thanks for a great night

Very casual dining experience. Menu was varied to offer something for everyone. Good food, good prices. The atmosphere was friendly and restaurant seating in a wide open room makes for a loud place, which is just the way I like it!

There are limited dining places in Roxbury. This is the best choice with out driving. If you are staying at the Roxbury Motel it is just outside your resort. The food is good, the staff is friendly. Join the locals and have fun.

We are visiting from Australia and met our friends from Long Island at the Roxbury Motel for a ski weekend. We went across the street for a bite and were very well taken care of by Jill. I asked for Buffalo chicken wings not too well done and they came out perfect. The burgers were also cooked perfectly, as ordered.... More

We stayed next door at the Roxbury and loved that we could walk to dinner and liberations! It has a local bar feel with style and food way beyond bar food. The bar and wait staff consisted of two lovely women who made us feel welcome! We had cocktails and apps.....try the teriyaki beef sticks.....so good! This lounge is not... More

There is not much to do in this quaint little town, but the Public Lounge was lively and inviting. We were in Roxbury for a wedding and met up at the Public Lounge with friends for dinner the first night we were there. The staff was very friendly and the food was pretty good. I was not expecting too much,... More

I enjoyed dinner twice here during a recent visit to Roxbury. The first night, I had the chicken special with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The chicken was very good...a large portion, fresh and well-prepared with lots of capers, but it would have benefitted from more sauce. A tablespoon or two of sauce was spooned over the chicken, barely even enough... More

What a Fabulous casual restaurant in walking distance from The Roxbury Contemporary Catskill Lodging! As a family, everyone was pleased both evenings with their meals and the service. Reasonable prices, on the pub menu or higher in the evening on their dinner menu, but very well worth it. We will be returning there again.

Staff a little rude Little pricey Good food except misinformed that something contained nuts. Emergency room visit due to deadly allergy of walnuts.

Unfortunately the staff wasn't informed about any food allergies. It was a nut allergy and the food that was ordered was an alfredo pesto pasta. In 9 years we have never had anyone have an allergic reaction. I've apologized and the meal was refunded when management was informed of the situation. More
