Went here for a beer, and that's all we had. They had a decent tap selection, though nothing really special. They had a lot of New England beers (Wolaver's Brown Ale, Trinity IPA, Sam Adams). The bartender seemed to just not care. He spent most of his time chatting with what I assume were friends at the other end of the bar, completely ignoring us for a good 10 minutes while we sat at the bar. The place was pretty much empty for a Saturday night around 10:30-11 except for a few people at the bar and some older couples at tables. There was a jazz band playing. We didn't get any food. The atmosphere was a total turn off for us. I heard people rave about this place and talk about the good beer selection. I didn't think it was anything worth writing home about, just another average bar that had a slightly better than average beer selection. There are many other bars in Providence worth going to over this one. Maybe it's because it's so new that it was empty, but the bartender's apathy was a royal turn off.

Visited Everyman on 4/5/2009. Right off Pleasant Valley Parkway and convenient to 95 & Route 6/10. Located at the American Locomotive Works. Everyman definitely has a bistro quality to it - a decent sized wooden bar, a stage area for live music (the Waylanders performed a benefit concert this evening) and several wooden tables of varying size. Nice use of a converted mill space, and the wife really enjoyed the ambience. Nice menu of apps and hearty food (I had the fish & chips and she had the chicken pot pie). 18 taps and Old Thumper on the beer engine, as well as a small selection of cans and bottles. Tap list consisted of Victory Prima Pils, Narragansett lager, Cottrell Ale, DFH 60, Trinity IPA, Magic Hat & Sam Seasonals, Otter Creek, Bass, Guiness, Allagash White, Belfast Lobster Bay, PBR and Anchor Steam (can't remember the rest). Food was very good and prices were reasonable ($60 for 4 drinks, 2 dinners and dessert). The beer selection wasn't spectacular, but it was solid nonetheless. It's also rare that the wife and I find a place that is enjoyable for both of us, while having some decent tap offerings. Well worth your time.

Update: 5/2/09
Went back with the wife (she really digs this place) and noticed that the beer list is not the same as what's on tap. They also had Smutty Old Brown Dog, Wachusett Porter & Narragansett Porter on tap. If you visit, take a walk by the taps first; don't really on the menu.

The wife and I went on July 19th one week after the place opened and it was a great time. The taps were all craft selections, nothing high end but decent established craft beers. We had a few DFH 60s and some Prima Pils. The food selection is not huge but there is something for every palate. For an app we had the calamari and it was just right, not chewy and rubbery. Next was a few Po Boys of shrimp and chicken with a side of basmati rice that had just the right amount of spice. It is a new spot that I think will be the anchor spot for a huge development project in the American Locomotive Works on Valley St. They have a series of concerts on the lawn in front of the place every Thursday evening for the summer so some great beer, good food at good prices and free concerts ..I am sold. The owner Leah once owned the Custom House Tavern and actually was responsible for getting me into the craft beer scene in the late eighties. She told me that she wanted to truly commit to the beer end of the equation and it appears that the plan is working. This was the end of the first full week so attendance was light because the word hadn't been out too long. The bill for an app, 4 beers, and 2 entries was within $55 so as long as the items I mentioned remain the norm I will make myself a regular.

Went back for dinner with better half on 7/31 and the experience was just as good but what I wanted to mention is that we had four beers, an app and two entrees and the whole thing with tip was very affordable and that is hard to find in a lot of places today. Ciao for now.
