I might be a bit biased as Trinity is my favorite bar in the city, but I have spent many nights here recently. I can't recommend a better bar to sit, hang out, chat with the bartender or whoever might be sitting next to you, have a small group meeting, meet up with friends, whatever.

The beer is good and the food is excellent. I have rarely had a bad meal here. And for the prices, it's even better. Everyone that visits should try the Brewer's Burger and the cheesecake, along with the RI IPA or the Point Break Pale Ale. For a slightly more expensive (~$13) meal, try the sausage platter.

The music is never overbearing, making it perfect to have a conversation with someone sitting across the table from you or a couple seats over at the bar. The waitresses are super friendly and very helpful (and some even know the beers quite well).

If you're in providence for whatever reason, stop by, have a burger, have a beer, and keep it local.

Re-reviewing (3/28/2008): While I still like Trinity quite a bit, I am adjusting the scores based on my more recent visits. Trinity has become very hit or miss with the quality of both their food or beer. When they're on, they're on. But when they're not on... it can be pretty bad. I've never had anything inedible, but the beer can be nearly undrinkable. It can be watery or soapy in flavor and mouthfeel at times and the food is sometimes not cooked right. But, as I said, when they're on, everything is excellent. My previous review still holds true for the most part, I just wanted to update with more recent experiences.

Good selection of beers, nice ambiance, friendly wait staff. Menu has a lot of selections and the food we had was quite good.

This brewery is in downtown Providence has the "normal" bar feel. Nothing too out of the ordinary. The brewing area is behind the bar and easy to see. The brews are very good and unfiltered.

When I visited, there were 4 or so people at the bar and one table other than mine and it still took quite a while to get service. Once my order was placed it took a bit of time to get my brew.

On the food side of things, the fries were disgusting, oily/greasy, limp, and pretty much room temperature. The corned beef ruben on the other hand was probably the best I've ever had. So when it comes to food it would seem a hit or miss sort of thing, but be very wary of the fries.

All in all if you visit I would stick to the beer and probably sit at the bar where service is probably a bit quicker.
