I’ve been to the Rolla location of Public House on multiple occasions and love the atmosphere (even though I’m not really a beer drinker, shhhh). In spite of my fondness for the original location (and the fact that a close friend is one of the owners) I somehow hadn’t managed to make it to the St. James location. So, a friend’s birthday along with another friend commenting that we really needed a night out seemed like the perfect opportunity to check it out. I was not disappointed!
As I shamefully admitted above I’m not really a beer drinker but an ample wine list, along with other liquor, means that’s not an issue. The birthday girl enjoyed her sampler of craft beers while the rest of had some great local wine.
In addition to drinks we also had some great food. Sausage and cheese platters, artisan sandwiches, hummus, and raspberry cheesecake bites are a few of the delicious goodies on the menu.
The atmosphere was just as fun as the Rolla location. It’s relaxed, upscale but casual, and quiet enough to have good conversations while still feeling lively and fun. This was my first visit to this location but it definitely won’t be my last!
