The food here is really great, atmosphere casual and fun, service fine. You can sit outside on picnic tables with your dog (!) or go inside for a cozy atmosphere. Mussels and frites are a great bet here.

The Publick House was the perfect setting for a romantic date with my boyfriend. We loved the cozy feeling of the restaurant and the sweet candle-lit tables. I have a lot of food allergies so I was nervous, but they were so accommodating. I ordered...More
