Summary: A unique feast of seafood and pork dishes.

At The Publican, guests are welcomed into a lively space that captures the essence of a European beer hall with a menu that celebrates beer, pork, and fish. The atmosphere is electric, with communal tables and a bustling vibe, perfect for indulging in fresh oysters, seafood towers, and a daily-changing menu featuring global flavors. Each dish proudly states its origin, from Florida cobia to Michigan lettuce, and the beer selection is vast, with over 100 varieties. The Publican stands as a modern homage to public houses of old, where the conversation is as flowing as the beer and the pork belly is as memorable as the setting.
