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 PB&J Burger, Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad and the infamous Bacon Cheddar Tots, which are a must try! “Recess” (aka Happy Hour) is held daily (in most locations) and boasts items such as Ahi Tuna Poke, Crispy Naked Wings, and Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower. Our bar features a vast selection of seasonal artisanal cocktails and sommelier selected wines.
