"This was my first time eating at Public House. I wanted a place for me and the family to have brunch on my birthday. I usually celebrate out of the country or in New York, but this year had to stay close to home. Public House was AWESOME! My family loved it. My eight year-old son raved the food, which is surprising. All plates were empty. It was a great time."

"An unremarkable brunch. We were there early on a Saturday morning, so it was nice and quiet, but there is truly nothing special about the ambience or menu. We won't be back."

"My husband and I found a babysitter for the night and were able to get reservations for Public House. Despite being a little late, we were seated right away. The service was good - our waitress check in on us a couple of times throughout the meal, and the food was good. We shared the mixed grill plate. All in all was a welcomed night out."

"Great weekend meal. The joint was humping and it had energy and a great vibe. Service was on point, Makayla, was a charming and gracious server. She kept is on drinks and food, monitoring the table and keeping an eye on us.
Food was great! Wings were huge and the hummus was taste. Fish tacos were good but did not seem to match the rest as the fish looked processed and not what I saw going on in the balance of the plates.
Entrees were also great, burger, shrimp and grits and fried chicken.
Great job by all!"

"Food was not well seasoned. Was not a fan of the cheesesteak egg rolls. Waitress did not ask why the plate was barley touched. My husband liked his seafood pasta. My chicken sandwich was bland. No taste. Over priced for basic food. Will not go back."

"The food was not seasoned well. Overall we did not enjoy our food and will not be returning. The server was pleasant and the manager did allow us to send a dish back and select something else so they really did try..."

"Public House was not good, in fact it was the worst meal I have had in years. We had the Philly Cheesesteak Eggrolls for starters, which tasted like greasy flavorless meat in a fried shell. They were served with "house made spicy ketchup" which was also not good and the flavor didn't match with the appetizer at all. For our main course, I had the jambalaya and my girlfriend had the turkey sandwich. The jambalaya tasted like canned tomato sauce over rice with some un-marinated proteins thrown in, and the turkey sandwich almost had no flavor at all. I was very disappointed because we (my girlfriend and I) were excited for a night out in National Harbor for the first time. And, to make it worse, both of us got upset stomachs soon after the meal and had to call it an early night, and return home. I will NEVER patron this restaurant again."

"Hostess/check in process wasn't great. Two different members of our party waiting a while to be seated while servers / staff stood around nearby. Otherwise, good place for food and good waitstaff service."
