About Us


Public School is a chef-driven gastropub serving exclusively craft beer and delivers, “An Education in the Art of Food & Beer.” We use only the freshest quality ingredients, sourced from local Farmer’s Markets whenever possible. The eclectic, seasonal menu includes favorites such as the BBQ Bison Burger, Roasted Poblano with Quinoa and the infamous Bacon Cheddar Tots, which are a must try! “Recess” (aka Happy Hour) is held Monday through Friday (in most locations) and boasts items such as Ahi Tuna Poke, Crispy Naked Wings, and PB&J Sliders. Our bar features a vast selection of seasonal artisanal cocktails and sommelier selected wines.
