This has become one of our favorite little places to go for pub food and beer! The fish and chips is a favorite and I had a really good Philly steak sandwich the other night. It was very flavorful and I'll definitely get it again. They have a good selection of beers on tap and in bottles. It gets kind... More

The public house is nice, clean, and has good service in the heart of downtown Peoria Heights. They have a neat bar with an average draft beer selection. We did not eat on this visit, but have eaten in the past and the food is good. Great place to stop in and have a drink and meal.

It struck me as a very customer-friendly restaurant, with an excellent menu and superb service. Alexa was one of the best servers I met in restaurants -- she was very friendly and unpretentious, amiable, helpful and attentive. Salmon I ordered is another thing to remember -- if you are not into the 'pub food', it is definitely worth trying. I... More

This visit was for Sunday Brunch and our first to the restaurant. The brunch menu was innovative with an interesting selection of eggs, sandwiches, Benedict dishes and pancakes. We sat down at 12:20, ordered at 12:35 and received a slow trickle of our ordered food at 1:15. The food was tasty and deserves a second try, but kitchen management needs... More

We received our drinks but 45 minutes later, no food. "There was a massive carry out order right before your order was placed." Well what about all the tables surrounding us that came after and received their food and had time to eat it? Being forgotten and then lied to makes for one unhappy customer. Not likely to be back.... More

Originally went when it was Sullivan's Irish and enjoyed it. Now that it is an English style pub - this Irishman still enjoys it. Pretty decent food, can be noisy so hard to carry on a decent conversation below shouting level when crowded (which is most times). Good beer choices - offers a unique experience to Peoria as a true... More

I was on business and asked some locals wherected to eat and Publik House was on the top of the list. Wonderful and lively atmosphere on a Monday night. The wait staff was terrific explaining every detail responding to my questions. The Bloody Mary was one of the best I have ever had, food delicious and reasonable. I would definitely... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday night and sat out on the sidewalk. Service was prompt and nice. The burgers we had were tasty and I had parmesan truffle fries which were excellent.

We have been to The Publik House twice. Our first visit was for Sunday brunch. The food was much better than average pub food. There was a good selection of drinks and beer.

My daughter and I were in town visiting family and we all went out for dinner. My daughter is vegetarian and liked the menu. We ate inside and the decor and vibe is very cool. The irish nachos are insane. We asked if the candied bacon (omg) could be placed on one side of the nachos and it was an... More
