The Public House

This is a great spot to meet up and hang out. Good size bar. Tons of tables. Nice patio. Tons of beers on tap. Amazing cocktails. The food is really good. Here's is the best part. The staff. Everyone here is friendly, and will make you feel at home. This place definitely deserves your patronage.
After a long day of travel to Charlotte, we wanted something easy (and close) for dinner. This was the closest thing still open (seems Charlotte closes rather early than what we are used to!) The place was packed, great vibe but definitely loud. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not what we were expecting. You need to order from the bar (wished we had been told that piece before sitting for 20+ minutes) BUT once we ordered -- service was great and we loved how friendly the service was. The food was very pub like with a few gems and we all enjoyed our dishes. The vegan option on focaccia bread was amazing - not at all what I was expecting it was so much better. A great spot if you're good with loud (people not so much the music), play darts and love to drink beer. And as I mentioned --. Great vibe overall. Oh! And forgot the pic but the fries are great!
I attended the the Panthers game with my family yesterday as we were walking back to the hotel we decided to give this place a shot. They wanted to sit outside..ok cool Oh you have to order at the bar because there is not any wait staff...what? Food is delivered by a runner who then pulls a disappearing act.. The menu is at best decent with some strange listings The family ordered...food came Appetizer sized portions.. I cook for a living so I look at plates a little differently.. Not impressed with what came out.. I ordered the cabbage rolls and they were horrible..chewy, stringy and lacking flavor of any kind.. They looked good but that is where the story ends.. I wanted to send them back but my brother said just forget it and don't worry about it. Let's not ruin the day.. Here's a pic of the rolls and I have the other pic of what I refused to swallow if need be. Never again...
Large selection of drafts. We are the chicken parm (nice spice level), the bao chicken (very good if you're partial to hot sauce) and the Mac and cheese (good basic Mac & cheese). I'd give 5 stars except the staff at the bar - you must go to the bar to order everything - totally ignored us while we were standing there.
Downtown pub with late night hours when most of the breweries are closed. Still offers food late too - excellent smash patty burgers at midnight? Yes please. Great selection of beer as well.
