We celebrated a good friends birthday at Public House the other evening and I would have to say, the service and dinner were on point!! Every single lady at my table absolutely raved about how delicious their food was. The fact that we had the entire upstairs to ourselves made it so intimate, and Oscar was one of the better servers ... read more

Public House is a manassas hidden gem.... the food is upscale gastropub style - we just left there from having Sunday brunch (photos attached) - but you can get anything from poutine to mussels.... every dish I’ve had makes me come back and try something new - the goat cheese and spinach salad is surprisingly better then all the othe ... read more

Two of us ate lunch on a weekday. No waiting. We ate outdoors. Both meals were delicious. The wait staff was very friendly. Great beer selection.

Been here multiple times and had the fried chicken the first time and the public house burger and both were phenomenal. One of the best restaurants and atmospheres in the area.

Place is clean and the staff are friendly. Our orders came out great. My wife had the Reuben and I had the junction burger.

First off, order the Mac and cheese, it's amazing. It had onions and bacon for flavor.

I ordered two beers. I despise IPA, so If you are like me then try their Pilsner or their stout. It's super f

We always love coming to Public House. We moved away to Charleston, SC three years ago but every time we come back to town we make sure to stop in for a bite to eat. The beer and wine selection is fantastic and the food is always incredible. The bartenders and servers are always friendly and attentive. Interior is super clean.
Stevhe B. via yelp.com - Aug 20, 2020
Do you want your own Cheers bar? Look no further. Public house has great beer, good food, and rotates their specials at least monthly. Come here a few times and you'll be family. A nice smaller bar in the heart of historic Manassas. Come and stay awhile. Can't recommend enough.

The food was delicious! And the service was even better...they were quick and friendly. And when they had come out to clear my plate they realized that I hardly touch the mac and cheese (it had onions in it), they didn't hesitate to offer to take it off of my bill. Would definitely go back.

Hands down best bar/restaurant in this area. Amazing food, great staff, and they stay open late which is great for someone like me who is sick of fast food when I get off work late.

I love coming here for a late night bite, it's so great that the kitchen is open later then most. The food is always fresh, hot, and comes out in a timely manner. The employees are all very welcoming, but Kate and Juan are my favorites. Best place to get high quality food and hang out with friends.

As a 30 year+ manasses resident, I've had some great meals from local restaurants. Our meal tonight (5/17/20) had to be one of the best ever.

And I then I ordered a double decker melt that was amazing and filled the void and then some. Friendly atmosphere and delectable menu. Highly recommended.

Very good lunch with a friend. We both had burgers, two different types, with a salad. The burgers were cooked perfect and the buns were very fresh and not too think.

The food was good, the service not bad. Wine and beer choices are good. I had candied bacon, it was excellent. Salmon was dry. Over all, it all adds up, the appetizer list is interesting so you need to try it. Many choices.
