Incredible wedding that didn’t bust our budget.
The Public was one of the best choices we could have made. The staff was professional, adaptable, and hospitable. With all the changes to table arrangements and head counts they were there to help. The food was a hit with our guests and the open bar overcame the initial onslaught and ran efficiently the whole night. They took care of us and our guests and seemed both grateful that we had chosen them and eager to prove they were worthy of our choice.Sent on 06/26/2019
