This place is in a great location for those staying at Palazzo or Venetian, or attending a conference in the convention center. It was clearly built to feed the convention goers need for alcohol - be it beer, wine, or cocktails. Pleasantly there is a strong focus on quality draft beers here and during my several visits this place was crowded at noon, mid afternoon and evening. The bartender told me there has not been one slow day since opening earlier this year.

The decor is modern, with a bar in front and dining tables in the back. The taps are easily viewable, and there were two cask ale offerings also above the bar. There were 24 draft offerings and a large amount of bottles that were visable from the bar stool. There was a good mix of beer styles from Stone, Deschutes, Lagunitas, Lost Coast, Ballast Point, Firestone, Green Flash, Big Dogs, and Tenaya Creek to name a few. A nice beer menu makes it easy to make a selection as it was broken up by style.

The food we had were just some appetizers, but they were pretty good. I found service to be very attentive and despite the big crowds on some visits, they were constantly hustling to fill orders. The bartenders also knew the beers and didn't hesitate to give you an opinion either.

For those that complain about prices - this place is all about location and it is clear that it is focused on making as much money as possible from the conventioneers, not creating a cool low cost beer bar for the general public. I can't knock them for that especially since the bar stools and dining tables were gerenally full on my visits. But I would still come here for a pint or two if I wasn't here at a convention.

Recently spent a week in Vegas and was looking forward to trying this place. Unfortunately, I walked away disappointed. Great looking place, pretty good selection but the service was awful. Bartenders were unfriendly and seemed uninterested in helping us out. Definitely, my least favorite beer bar that we checked out.

Was attending IBM Impact Conference in 2013 and had a great time at Public House. The atmosphere is great - it's inside the Venetian kind of smack dab in the middle and every time I walked by during breaks from the conference at the end of the day, it was always happening.

Quality - very nice place, upscale but not pretentious

Service - was on point, sat at the bar while I waited for my buddy, bartender shot the breeze while I was watching some NBA playoffs that I threw down a bet for

Selection - unbelievable selection, I had to decide between Parabola and Sucaba,haha. Also had some Sublimely self righteous on cask which was sweet

Food - was awesome, split a few apps with my buddy

Value - was definitely pricey but I was on the corporate dime so that was sweet. i mean what do you expect at a top notch casino/hotel in Vegas

Nice place which I would absolutely visit again.

Beer selection was more than solid. They had parabola on draft which I unfortunately missed out on - long story. They had a few other Firestone selections on tap and were getting something from FW on cask but the bartender wasn't sure what. I thought the prices were reasonable given the location; I had a sculpin on draft for $10, DFH 90 was $11. The food was very good and not terribly priced, again, given the location. All in all a nice place with real good food and one of the best beer selections on the strip. Side note - paid $15 for a Lagunitas IPA at some random "pub" in Caesars WTF ... didn't know the price until after it was poured for me.

Been here several times over the past few years including a few last week while on business trip.

Solid tap list that rotates fairly frequently. Most drafts from $7 - $12 which is not atypical for the strip.

Good bottle list, but some of them are crazy expensive. I would have loved to crack open a Parabola but not at $54.

Food was quite tasty. The lamb meatball sand which was a personal favorite.

Bar staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

One of my favorite stops any time I'm in the Venetian.

In Vegas for work. Checked in and headed over to public house. Easy to find. Great bottle list and lots of quality drafts. Bartender was friendly and funny. Didn't try the food. Expect $10+ a brew which is expensive but in line with Vegas pricing. Recommended.

Cheers.

In the Venetian/Palazzo Restaurant Row.

Generally a very good selection; a great selection for the Strip. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. On two recent visits the bartenders offered several tasters while I reviewed the tap list.

Ordering from an iPad is fun at first, but the novelty wears off. It does provide more information than the wait staff might know.

The food is upscale, good, and pricey, but you pay a premium on the Strip. Beverages also have inflated prices.
