This place keeps their taps and lines impeccably cleaned. With over 100 beers on tap this is no small task. The menu has been amped up and the food taken to another level. They are opening one in my town (Coventry) can't wait.
I've always loved the Dohertys on East Ave. in Pawtucket for their huge tap selection and divey atmosphere. This location is similar in tap selection, but the atmosphere here definitely gives off a chain restaurant kind of feel. Very TGI Fridays in decor. However, the beer selection is great, and the service was very good. The food was okay, typical pub grub.
My wife and I stopped in for a quick pint before heading to a friend's birthday party. I'd been to the Pawtucket location several times and didn't think this one was as craft beer oriented until I noticed it on the joint website.
They have quite a few taps but not many that you absolutely have to have. I went with a Jack's Abby Sour Barrel Project #3. It was worthwhile. My wife had an Alpine pale ale which was just OK.
The service is good and the atmosphere is interesting though a bit dark. I'm sure I'll stop in again to kill time before heading to the airport. Given the very limited RI beer scene, this is a solid option.
Kinda a weird place - totally trying to cater to the craft beer crowd with its expansive and excellent selection - but I don't get the sense that the waitress I had knew anything about craft beer. It really hurt the experience.
Food was pretty mediocre - kinda okay for a pub with a truck stop feel.
A bunch of us stopped in here after judging at the OSHC this past Saturday.
A hundred and something taps, well hell yeah thats the place for this group of beer geeks.
We tried to call ahead and warn them that a party of 12 or so would be descending upon them around 7, but alas reservations are something they just don't do. Walking through the front door you are greeted with a hostess station, take a right and you run into a wall with a window looking into the cooler full of kegs. I got a quick tour of the inside of the cooler with the manager, its very impressive and spotless. So we waited a while more and finally snagged a table, but our hands were still quite devoid of glasses of beer. Service started out slowly, but as the night progressed the waitstaff figured us out and all were content. Varied menu mostly pub inspired dishes, my beef on weck was quite good and the four way burgers out table made seemed to pleas everyone. Pricing seemed reasonable for the quality, I would probably go back if in the area.
