    Great Food, Beautiful Grounds And Very Dog Friendly

    We dined on the patio for lunch. It was well shaded with umbrellas and trees. But if you wanted some sun you were able to find a warm spot too. The tables were spread out nicely. Not like some patios where you’re sitting on top of each other. I’ve dined outside before with our dog but this place takes the cake! They immediately poured him a bowl of water, asked his name and showed us the dog friendly menu, if we were interested. Of course our big guy got something. We ordered the Fido’s feast. A blend of chicken, turkey and hard boiled egg. Also came with 2 dog bones served on his own frisbee to take home. He devoured it. Our food was also spectacular. The grounds are gorgeous and wished we would have had time to walk around after we were done. Highly recommend with or without your pooch.

    Beautiful Patio

    We love taking our bulldog, Coco, to Public Landing. The patio is so nice, and the wait staff is beyond friendly. The food was superb. Coco enjoyed her food as well. We love that there is a ‘Dog Menu’, so they are not left out of the dining experience. We will most definitely be returning!

    Our (dog & family) favorite dog-friendly restaurant!

    Amazing outdoor patio with a HUGE dog menu (Yapatizers... Even bigger than the kids menu). Dog gets bottled water in a bowl, fancy food, and treats! The human menu is also delicious & diverse. Love the steaks! Waiters are attentive to all guests (furry & non) and remember their regulars. Can't recommend it enough!
