I was here twice once for lunch and once late night after dinner for Karaoke night (Tuesdays). I had a Steak Salad which was good, the steak was juicy and tender which was unexpected. The service was fair, and friendly. The atmosphere is like a Public House, nothing really noteworthy. Could be cleaner. Prices are moderate and good selection of... More

Traveling alone for business I sat at the bar and visited with other travelers. The bar staff was friendly and accommodating. Chose off the Happy Hour menu which was $8 an appetizer and several dollars off beer. Ordered the curried mussels and the peel and east shrimp thinking they would be small. More than enough to make a dinner out... More

They need to change the name or up the game. Public house implies something they couldn't deliver. Worse, the front desk waiter left/walked away, and left me hanging after I asked, then another lady had to go find out only to come back later and say they couldn't do it. I wouldn't come back based on the tepid service even... More

Busy bar. Went for weekend lunch. Waited 15 minutes to be served at the bar - there were plenty of staff but they were not serving customers, instead busying themselves with menial tasks like collecting glasses. When we did eventually get served it took a further 25 minutes for the food to arrive. Food was acceptable, but nothing to write... More

Stopped in at the Public House for an off-site lunch during a conference. Outdoor seating was very pleasant. Prices and options were very good for a quick, yet tasty lunch.

Stopped in here on our walk around the harbor for drinks. All of the drinks were good from rum punch to margaritas to mixed drinks and beer. Also had a couple shots that were huge. Our server was good too!! Would come back in again.

Bottomless mimosas! Do I need to say more? The food is really good too. I had the best crab cake Benedict that I have ever had for my entree. The food was really good. The atmosphere was upbeat and fun. It is on the pricey side, $30 for mimosas and breakfast but worth it!

We sat at the bar with friends. The bartenders were nice and served us great drinks. It's a little pricy but worth it. I had chicken and waffles and my husband had a breakfast special. We both enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere.

We arrived for dinner at 6PM and surprising were promptly seated after a friendly welcome. We were away from the bar and by a window which enabled us to have a conversation and people watch. Our waitress was very pleasant and patient with us as we had a hard time deciding the many inviting menu items. As it was the... More
