    55555 by Adam A.

  • Lindsay W.Burnt end brisket Mac n chz

    33333 by Lindsay W.

    33333 by Jessica T.

  • Jessica T.Custom order Mac n Cheese. Order it, Eat it & keep it coming. Obvs you need truffle oil. Other than that go nuts!

    55555 by Jessica T.

  • Jessica T.Make a reservation for a table with a tap. Minimum 6 people. Pay what you drink. Plus the food is really delish! And the DJ is the best in the city. I recommend the table with Jameson. 'Twas HUGE!

    55555 by Jessica T.

  • Jessica T.Perfect birthday spot! Request a sparkler for your special birthday person. Warning: be sure your camera is ready, because a sparkler will not stay lit forever.

    55555 by elizabeth f.

  • Michael B.Monica is the worst bartender in Chicago. In all my years in the industry I've never seen someone so anti customer service oriented.

    33333 by Michael B.

  • UntappdTons of great drafts and a wide open space. Two bars at the front and back of the house. On a Friday and Saturday - lines can be out the door and onto the street.

    55555 by Untappd

  • GeorgeIt's a bar.

    55555 by George

  • Sheila C.I didn't eat the food. I just went for the music and the dancing. I realized that if you're a not tall, white and busty girl, the bouncers will make you wait outside for an hour.

    33333 by Sheila C.

  • ChristieGood food. Bad service. Baaaaaaad.

    33333 by Christie

  • Johanna C.Ask for a Jarrett Payton All-American Wheat Ale!

    55555 by Eric W.

  • David S.The urinals are too low for tall people.

    55555 by David S.

  • Collin V.Chorizo mussels with a Matilda Belgium beer

    55555 by Collin V.

  • Christopher W.Any place that offers beer hoppy enough to be represented by two rabbits banging is good-to-go in my book.

    55555 by Christopher W.

  • ManbqueTons of TV's and 72oz beers. Watch a game and have a HUGE beer.

    55555 by Manbque

  • Time Out ChicagoPublic House has taken all the trappings of a typical sports bar—TVs everywhere, cheese curds and beer—and yuppified them. A hefty beer list boasts American craft ales and specialty Belgians.

    55555 by Time Out Chicago

  • KitchenboyIf available, get the kobe beef brisket. Yum!

    55555 by Kitchenboy

  • Chris G.Well..there was a feather in our fries..that was gross

    55555 by Jennifer S.

  • Josh H.Mussels and two loaves of bread.

    55555 by Josh H.

  • Andrew J.Pour your own has a lot less novelty than you'd think. Holographic keyboards? Didn't see any. Also a little douchey.

    33333 by Andrew J.

  • Samir P.This place is horrible!!! No crowd contol. Snooty waitresses! Do not go!

    11111 by Samir P.

  • Sue J.Try Jarrett Paytons new beer!

    55555 by Sue J.

  • Jason E.Beef Brisket sliders are a NO GO! Their advertised "wall taps" are only for private parties. Staff is not knowledgable but they have a decent beer selection.

    55555 by Jason E.

  • Motorola M.We'd love to go everywhere during Restaurant Week but can't. Show us what you think we should eat the next time we're at Public House w/a picture of your dish. Tweet it to us @motorola. Happy eating!

    55555 by Motorola M.

  • Time Out ChicagoTap your own beer or spirit at the table or sip a cocktail meant to resemble a beer (such as the Port of Call, a Jameson-port-Rum-Patron concoction with a whipped cream head that’s a play on Guinness)

    55555 by Time Out Chicago

  • Michael C.Salt salt a dash of salt, a pound of salt, salt salt salt on everything.....but I loved it.

    55555 by Michael C.

  • ThrillistPH is taking their pour-it-yourself brew up a level by adding in-table liquor taps to the mix (plus an eight-tap, serve-yourself "walltender"), and keeps the booze flowing through the decor.

    55555 by Thrillist

  • Jim DevineMake sure u start with the pretzels and cheese app. The dry rub fries are amazing!

    55555 by Jim Devine

  • Gilt CitySmoked chicken wings, with your choice of white or spicy barbecue sauce. Smoked veggie and goat cheese dip, with grilled flatbread. Smoked beet salad, smoked Kobe brisket…we could go on all day.

  • Aaron S.Super dead now, but still crappy service.

    22222 by Aaron S.
