More than a local pub
A newer restaurant that’s starting to gain popularity is the East Athens Craft Public House. It’s located in the Ansonborough retail section facing Gaines School Road. The restaurant has a friendly atmosphere and a snappy decor.
It’s a small restaurant and not too loud, making dinner with friends much nicer than feeling like you need to yell to be heard. We sometimes eat at the bar, since we enjoy watching the bartender make drinks and seeing food deliveries come out of the kitchen.
Craft Public House has been open for a couple of years and we’ve seen lots of changes in the menu during this time. It’s quickly becoming one of our favorite places for a relaxing dinner. We appreciate the consistent quality and variety on the menu.
East Athens Craft Public House is a welcome addition
The owner had a successful career at several other restaurants around Athens, including The Porterhouse Grill. The knowledge he gained from his previous experience has helped to make the Craft Public House an excellent option for dining. The menu has a wide variety of local beer and several specialty cocktails, along with a full bar. The best way to describe the Craft Public House is it’s an upscale pub. The customers range from young to older, and all seem to enjoy themselves.
Menu options included an award-winning cheese pub soup with cheddar, smoked gouda, and bacon. The pork belly small plate is cooked to perfection and the grilled endive salad with added chicken is delicious. If you’re in the mood for something a little different, this place is worth a try. Whether you choose duck, trout, or a great hamburger, the Craft Public House has it all.
At this location, the Craft Public House is very convenient for the Ansonborough, Cedar Creek, and Green Acres residents and just a short drive from Madison, Oglethorpe and Oconee Counties.
