This week, we’ll highlight one of the newest additions to Greenville’s gastronomic scene.

Public House is known for serving farm to table southern food at an affordable value. Their menu is varied from rabbit to catfish, from sandwiches to popcorn. They also offer a great selection of craft beers, cocktails, and wine options. They have a viewing window located in an area in the dining room where you can see them curing meats. The restaurant’s interior is warm and rustic with a nice bar area separated from the main dining area. Bacon Bros. Public House is a best place for a fun, relaxed dining experience with friends and family.
