Irvine, the host of Restaurant: Impossible and other Food Network programs, puts his celebrity chef spin on American pub cuisine at the 9,000-square-foot restaurant featuring 275 seats.
The menu, the same served at lunch and dinner, gives fans a look into Irvine’s travels with a focus on comfort foods. Beer-battered fish and chips come with Kennebec fries while other options include bourbon maple salmon, dry-rubbed Spatchcock half chicken, St. Louis rIbs by the half and full rack, steak Frits, and Shepherds pie with lamb. Burgers, sandwiches, sharable dishes, and apps make the menu as well. For dessert, English banoffee pie with espresso ice cream is the way to go.
The restaurant closed in March 2020 after the state ordered all nonessential businesses, including restaurants and casinos, to shut down to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Tropicana reopened last September.
Robert Irvine’s Public House will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
