“Wine tasting trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Ate at the Public House on a recent wine tasting trip. They were able to seat our party of 10 with little to no wait (on a Thursday night). Drink menu is great, dining menu is limited but what we had was deemed excellent by all party members. Great people watching on the main street shopping area downtown. Worth a visit!

“Very good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

The menu is limited, but the flavors of the dishes they present are excellent! Tons of flavor in the meat dishes; the pan seared halibut was incredible-perfectly cooked. Nice selection of crafted beers as well. Very comfortable in very nicely finished space.

“A NEW FIND IN AN OLD HAUNT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Prior to retirement, we would frequently visit Walla Walla for wine tasting. As someone raised in California, my husband says Walla Walla wines are untouchable anywhere in terms of flavor and quality. We decided to try a new place--to us--for dinner while there and read good things about Public House 124. All were true. We had a great meal, great wine, and great bartender--Matthew. A few locals were at the bar and we all struck up a lively conversation. This is one of the places you could stay all night. It has that comfortable of a feeling. In Walla Walla, you can spend a fortune on a meal and have to get dressed up to have it, or you can go casual and have good food, good drinks, and good company. That's what we like.

“Great mixed drinks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

I have yet to eat a real meal here. Have only had late night bites, off a very limited menu. Really went in for some cocktails with my girl friends. The bartender makes amazing cocktails! Very unique and tasty! A little on the spendy side tho at $10/$11 per drink. I have gotten the same one every time I have gone bc it is soooo good, so why deviate? ;) it's the Public House margarita made with cucumber. Delicious and refreshing. Wouldn't mind a little more tequila, however. My sister got a drink that was unfortunately undrinkable. At the price, we should've sent it back, but didn't. It was a ginger pomegranate Cosmo of some sort, which sounded delicious, but tasted like a mix between a fire ball and cough syrup. So I wouldn't recommend that one. But the girls I have gone with have always enjoyed their choice in cocktail so I wouldn't judge solely based on the one bad drink. We had some fries and the kraut kreuggar to nibble on, and both were good snacks. I enjoy the drinks and the atmosphere at PH124, so I do continue to go back.

“Best martini's in Walla Walla!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

One of our top three spots in Walla Walla! The best cocktails in the area and excellent pub food! The truffle fries ROCK and the cocktails are the absolute best! Matt and Jim will make you feel right at home! Only fresh squeezed juices in the cocktails and local ingredients used in preparing your meal, even fresh morel mushrooms, in season! You are in for a treat! Don't miss Public House 124.
