Going Public – Zionsville Public House

Marcus White is a retired military officer who wanted to bring a neighborhood bar to Zionsville.

He opened The Pub at Anson in Zionsville nearly three years ago, and as of February, The Zionsville Public House is serving customers in the former Village Station location.

“We completely gutted the space, so it’s completely different than it was before,” White said. “I build bars that I want to hang out in. We just like a warm, inviting space for people to get together and eat some really good food.”

The Zionsville Public House has spacious decor, several TVs and rotating craft beers. There are also pool tables, darts and pull tabs, as well as a large outdoor space.

“I tend to find that my places draw a really regular crowd,” White said. “We’re there for the people who are there for us every day. A lot of the dishes are inspired by me traveling around the world as an Army officer. We’re a place where we cook food; we don’t reheat food.”

On the menu, customers can find a signature smash steak burger, gastropub items such as Argentinian steak frites and Venetian pizza, and the “Mess,” which is a steak, egg and potato bowl.

The Zionsville Public House does not have a phone or online ordering, so employees can focus on taking care of people who are in the restaurant. To-go food is available for customers who order in person.

“I’m intent on every guest that comes in having a great first experience,” White said. “You’re going to get nice decor and a place where you can meet some regulars, see some friendly faces, and feel like what a public house from the very origins of the English term was intended for – a place where neighborhoods get together.”

The Zionsville Public House is a 21-and-over restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The patio is dog friendly, and since the restaurant is located along the bike trail, there are plans to install a bike rack.

It is open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., and located at 10615 Zionsville Road.
