My husband and I recently got married in Roxbury this past July. We had a lot of family and friends coming in from out of town, so we wanted to treat them to drinks the night before the wedding and breakfast the day after. We had eaten at Public before, but never thought they would do everything they did for... More

Do go to Public for great appetizers and drinks. Nice to relax and enjoy friends. We came on a Friday evening for dinner. A rehearsal dinner was underway and just after we ordered the place filled up. Service was perfect, food came out piping hot and delicious. We were joined by friends who pushed two tables together. Their dinners were... More

This isn't the first time we have been here. I think the pictures are deceiving. The outside and especially inside scream to be updated, especially when located next to the Roxbury. The locals give the impression that they aren't fond of strangers but are harmless. That been said...the food is surprisingly good!! We have not had a bad meal here.

We tried this small, friendly restaurant near the Roxbury Motel. My wife enjoyed the chicken soup and a very large shrimp cocktail, and I had the ahi tuna, nicely prepared. We had house wine, which was also very good, and a chocolate lava cake for desert.

I was in town for a wedding, and after a long, rainy weekend this was the perfect antidote. Stopped in for some light fare and drinks. Service was warm and friendly. Great local hangout.

We went to Public Lounge to meet up with my very good friend who had just bought a house in the area. Had been to Roxbury many time but had never stopped by. Food was VERY good! We started with the caprese and bruschetta, both tasty. Hubby had the cod almandine, which he declared to be one of the best... More

We went there with some friends and were surprised to find such a good home style menu. The crab meat on guacamole and tacos was a perfect start. The freshly made bread served aside was hot and yummy. Cod as the main course and good vegetables like my mum made it. We ate it all up so we were to... More
