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

My girlfriend's and I enjoyed delivery, from the Public Lounge. While we stayed, at the Roxbury Motel, across the road. We had a fairly large order, and they were a tad busy, that evening. Although we waited, a while for our delivery. (We could've easily walked across the street.) Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. The potstickers, were the highlight, of... More

Food was great! There was a large variety which was good for our group with very different tastes. Pizza, panninis, burgers, salads and a large alcohol selection which was nice. The chicken lemongrass pot stickers were amazing. I need to find a recipe for these or another restaurant that makes them. 5 stars there, however, I think they can step... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your meal! The potstickers are one of our best sellers! I'miss sorry however, you were disappointed in our service. We split checks frequently so I don't understand why the waitstaff would have given you a hard time. As for her being pushy and acting like she didn't want to serve you I can guarantee you that...

We went on a weeknight and they were only serving pub food. We were staying at the Roxbury amd couldn't find anywhere else in town open. The food here was really good. We had a pizza and quesadilla. We did however wait a VERY long time. It seems if you are not a town regular you wait and wait. The... More

Spending a quiet weekend at the Roxbury Motel, this restaurant was certainly convenient and the food was good. It was a bit late at night and we ordered some appetizers, soups and salads, but the meals looked good and I'm sure they were good because our food was delicious. The atmosphere is casual and the service was good. I would... More
