We normally have a very nice experience at Republic. I think the staff was overwhelmed with a crowd in the bar for the Kentucky Derby. Drinks and food took significantly longer than normal and we had to wait another 10 min for silverware after the food was brought to the table. Drinks were brought after food instead of before. It was just really slow. Hopefully just an off night.

It was Derby Day at Republic so we invited about 30 friends and combined the event with a retirement party. It was super fun and all of our guests had a wonderful time. Thanks!

It was pretty good overall. Thought that we would have been sat somewhere else other than the bar area with a reservation.

The steak frites is really tasty. And we all said we could make a meal out of the deviled eggs with candied bacon. So delicious! Good food, good drinks, and friendly service.

We subscribe to & have purchased meals via the weekend BBQ texts so, were very excited to eat at Republic TT. Not our first Rathbun restaurant and like the other’s, we enjoyed our lunch, appreciated the great service and loved the food.

We live near the restaurant and have been wanting to go for a long time. We had ordered takeout from them the night before. It was so wonderful that we decided to go and try some of the other items on the menu. Everything was just perfect for our culinary experience taste!

Easter brunch. We had the prix fixe menu and the selections were very good. We all chose different entree's and were pleased. The appetizers were very good. The dessert turnover was pretty bland - a dash of cinnamon/nutmeg or a drizzle of raspberry sauce/caramel would have really helped the presentation.

Atmosphere was amazing and the patio was so much fun! Our drinks were SO good as well as most of the food we got. I ordered the pork chop which I was under cooked. When I told the manager she immediately said she would take it off the bill and asked if we would like something else. We asked for the meatballs, which came out quickly and very hot. They were so good and overall we had a really great experience.

We love this spot and the food and service are always great. My only reason for a four star was that our first two wine choices were unavailable that evening. But it was also Tuesday which we forgot was half price wine night. That's such a great deal by the way!

The doors were locked and no one was there. We had invited friends to join us for lunch, made our reservations on Open Table, drove 6 miles and arrived to find the restaurant closed for lunch. So disappointing.

Nowhere on this website or otherwise does it tell you that there’s a limited menu available on Sundays. Only certain appetizers and sandwiches are available. I made a reservation for five people as we were celebrating my son’s 13th birthday. After we were seated and ordered two appetizers it was then our server told us that those items were not available and that we needed to look at the menu because they don’t offer the full menu on Sundays. I’d chosen this place for a nice dinner with the intention of ordering things like salmon, chicken fried ribeye, schnitzel, and filet mignon. Had I known that wouldn’t be possible I would have never chosen this restaurant. You guys might want to make it known that on Sundays only a VERY limited menu is offered on Sundays. (Why bother opening on Sundays when there’s two sandwich shops literally next door?!) Needless to say, we were all really annoyed and disappointed that this happened. We ended up leaving and went to Neighborhood Services, where the full menu is offered on Sundays! It was a lovely dinner and everyone was happy.

Republic’s food is absolutely fantastic. Chef Ray has once again displayed his expertise in the culinary arts. We would search for this man’s food from East to West coast if it came down to it and can’t wait to dine here again!!

Thank you, Ray!!!
