We have eaten here a few times when looking for a different experience than the usual upscale Las Olas restaurants. Very convenient location in the "bar" district of Himmareshee, with some outdoor seating, tho its almost in the street. Many craft beers to choose from with a very knowledgeable/helpful wait staff. The lobster nachos are far and away the best thing on the menu. Have had them 3 times and they were a little different each time but always great. The rest of the food is good also.

Place is pretty cool inside! This location has flopped too many times to remember. It seems this new restaurant plans on sticking around! Comfort food mostly makes up the menu. The salads seems to be the only healthy options. We really went there for the draft beer. I think they had over 50 or something. So happy to see a place that didn't only have budweiser and miller lite. Young professionals and not kids like a lot of other places in the downtown area. Definitely plan on going back!

Yes, Lobster Nacho's. They were sooooo good! In fact everything we had was great. The menu is built to suit any taste. The portions aren't huge by McDonalds sizes, but just enough. It was a nice open air setting which was a plus for northerners wanting to embrace the warm southern air. The wait staff were all very nice and knowledgeable about the menu. The area is right off of a busy waterway, so it makes for a nice stroll after lunch or dinner. I would definitely return here.

The only saving grace to last night's visit to Public House was our waitress, Christa. My wife and I plus two friends decided to try this new bar in Himmarsrshee, we have lived here for more than 35 years and have seen the various transformations.

Upon arrival at 7:15, we were greeted by a polite young hostess and were asked if we were on our way to the Performing Arts Center for a show, very important if you are in a hurry, we were not. At first we thought that there would be six in our party and were asked to wait for a few minutes, no problem as we were the first to arrive. It turned out that there would only be four, so we moved to a hi-top in one of the open doorways, very pleasant.

As I said, our waitress, Christa, was excellent and handled all of the problems extremely well. These started when we started ordering, when multiple items were off the menu because they had run out of ingredients, items like arugula, bacon for the pulled pork sandwich and more... and this was before 8:00 p.m. on a Saturday, Our comment was that they needed someone new to do the ordering.

We ordered numerous appetizers, the tuna tartar was very good as were the fish tacos and lobster nachos. The lamb popsicles could not be discerned as lamb to being so fatty and smothered with a very heavy sauce. The calamari was cold and blah. I ordered a burger medium rare that was so dry and overdone, the must have forgotten that it was on the grill and the fries were cold. When I mentioned this to the waitress, she went to the kitchen who had told her that I would find the center pink......NOT!!

When our check arrived, the burger had been taken off, (no kidding?) but I noticed that the drinks that the ladies had ordered were $13 each! When my wife checked the drink menu, they were listed at $11. The waitress went to the manager who adjusted the check. The biggest disappointment was the fact that I am sure that the manager was aware of our experience of lack of items, poorly cooked food and to top it off being overcharged, he did not take the time to come to our table to speak to us!

It was not busy and if he had taken the time to try and make things right, he probably would have four future customers instead of four customers that love to eat out and tell our friends that will not be going back to Public House in a hurry.
