I've been to Julian's a few times now. They have a very eclectic menu with some food options you wouldn't think of. It's very unique, but very good. The service is always excellent, and the atmosphere is very laid back and funky. The beer selection is outstanding. They have 9 taps and a good size bottle list. The taps are always rotating, though they seem to always have a few things on almost all the time. The past few times I've been, they had Maredsous Dubbel and Duchesse de Bourgogne. They have always had a stout, Siberian Night, Smuttynose Imperial Stout, Stone IRS. Tonight, they had Lindeman's Framboise, St. Bernardus Tripel, Stone Imperial Russian Stout, Smuttynose Maibock, Endurance Ale, Maredsous Dubbel, 60 Min IPA, Kasteel Brune, and one other I can't remember. They also have a rotating selection of special bottles and a list of bottles they always have. The waitstaff is pretty knowledgeable about the beer and the food. The prices are outstanding. I got a pint of Stone IRS for $6. The food is very reasonable and almost always excellent. If you like beer and an interesting menu, this place rocks. They have a good selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes in addition to meat dishes. If you're in Providence and haven't tried it, it's a must try place for dinner. I have also heard great things about their breakfast, though I have never gone.

Small-ish place, with a small bar and not too many tables. However, the atmosphere is nice - bar-like, certainly - and the accents in the restroom (Star Wars action figures? PEZ dispensers? Frankenstein on the TV???) give it a nice unique feel.

Some great stuff on tap, from several countries. Solid options I noticed were Pannepot, Delirium offerings, Gulden Drak, DirtWolf, and plenty more. Serving temperature was good (chilled but not over-cold), tulips were provided.

Service was friendly and quick. The owner came over to say hi (I'm not exactly a suit-and-tie kind of dude, so that was cool). Bartenders were friendly, quick to offer a new beer, and knowledgeable. My first beer ended up a surprise keg change, so I wasn't charged. No complaints here!

Selection was really, really nice. I've mentioned some of the tap choices; there were a surprising number of taps, I want to say about 20. Then, the bottle selection was excellent, as well, with a number of solid brews (including Cantillon Gueuze).

As for food, I enjoyed a portobello-topped burger, which was really, really excellent. Fries are not an automatic; all sides are extra. I didn't try anything else, but the menu looked very good, and if the rest of the food is anything like the burger, then I recommend it all!

Prices for both food and beer were a bit on the high side, but well within a reasonable range. This gets ticked up one rank because of the extra cost for sides; a burger, fries, and a single beer would have put me in the neighborhood of $21-25 (without tip, and without splurging on an expensive bottle, like that Cantillon).

Great little place. I highly recommend it if you're in the area.
