This place has been doing great since they opened. Amazing service and staff, really tasty food, local brews, and has been putting on some of the better music in the Valley all summer.

The atmosphere is great! Love the decor when you walk in. My experience stopped there though. Twice now I've visited and sat at the bar only to be ignored for quite some time before finally being ackn...owledged. Hey bartender, no matter how busy you are, you need to acknowledge your guests. I get that you're busy and don't mind waiting but I don't appreciate being ignored. Next, I think it's absolutely ridiculous that you have to order your food at the cash register rather than at your table with your server. This is not trendy or cool. It's a nuisance. I highly doubt that in doing so it's saving anyone any time or money and surely not making your customers very happy. The food is good. Not great but good however somewhat overpriced. Their beer however... Their beer is great. I've not been fond of many of the local breweries in the Gunnison Valley but Irwin has done a great job! So far I've liked every one I've tried. Fix the food thing and fix the service and this place will be great. See More

High quality, local ingredients. They're affiliated with Irwin Brewing Co. in Crested Butte and have a bunch of their beers on tap. They also have a couple of cask beers, perfect if you want a beer wh...en it's chilly outside. See More

Welcoming staff, great food (fried chicken! BBQ beef sandwich!), stage in the cellar reminds you of a great private party you had in college.

Beautiful place with terrific staff, be sure to get the Shishito peppers... Not too hot at all. And, the Jamison / espresso vanilla bean float.

We ate at Public House last week and it was fresh and delicious. Another great addition to Elk Avenue and our list of restaurants to frequent. Next time I'll have to have the burger and Shishito pep...pers again!! See More

Just what Crested Butte needed. A beautiful venue, good food & beer, and a terrific staff! The choice of musical acts brought in is excellent!

Awesome food. Friendly staff. Best place in town to have a drink and eat an elk burger with bacon. Also has the best green chili I've ever had

As far as live music goes, this is one of the best venues on the planet. Friendly crew, unique food, and home brewed beer too... Can't miss it.
