Hours: Lunch and Dinner (daily), Late Night, Weekend Brunch
The go-to spot for Mt. Pleasant beer geeks from way back, Coleman Public House has a big “On Tap” chalkboard with an ever-rotating list of American craft beers and Belgian brews that might include a Blanche de Bruxelles White next to a Westbrook West Coast IPA or a Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour beside a Smuttynose IPA. The food is equal to the brews. The half-pound Angus burgers are a big draw, and the dinner menu blends hearty pub fare like fish and chips with more ambitious plates like encrusted yellowfin tuna and braised beef short ribs with potato gratin. Creative munchies like mini lamb burgers, crab and corn fritters, and Asian-glazed baby back ribs make for fine bar snacks, and on weekends the brunch menu stacks up pancakes alongside big plates of huevos rancheros, biscuits and gravy, and steak and eggs. And now its sister property, Maybank Public House, is giving JI-ers the same solid food. —Robert Moss (Dish, Winter 2019)
