So glad you liked the quesadilla! Our chicken is the most popular; however, my favorite is the pork. Our quesadillas come with salsa and sour cream but you can add guacamole with an upcharge. Hope to see you again

We went after skiing and had a really nice meal. There is a decent variety for everyone to like. I recommend making a reservation because it gets busy and is small. The servers were pleasant and the atmosphere is nice. It can get a bit...More

We stayed at the Roxbury and got in a little later in the evening time. This restaurant was perfectly located across the street. The food was delicious and service was great. The Ribs are awesome and the gnocchi was delish. Definitely would go back!

Nice little place if you find yourself in Roxbury (and if you're lucky, you'll be staying at the Roxbury Hotel next door.) Food is good; though it was better when it had a simpler menu. Service is friendly. Your best bet is the pub menu...More

Had a great salmon dinner there. Just steps from our motel, the Roxbury, which was very convenient. The wait staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was casual.

My family and I ate at the Public numerous times while we stayed at The Roxbury next door. The food and service were always excellent. We got something different every time we went and it was all great. If your in Roxbury eat at Public.

Enjoyed the food at the Public Lounge. Not a big restaurant and as a result it is quite noisy. If you want to hold a conversation while eating,this is not the place, however, the food was very good.
