Aidan's is a wonderful place for so many occasions. During the day the lunch and drink menus are great for a sandwich, appetizer or burger, at night the dinner specials are reasonable and yummy. The second floor is a blast, able to host large parties and then turns into a cool spot to hang out once dinner is done being... More

Aidan's has been one of the most consistently good eating establishments for many years. It has often characterized by their offerings of traditional Irish food and spirits, but their efforts have reached much further into Rhode Island tradition than most others (including most seafood restaurants). Their Rhode Island clam chowder hits the mark ...as close as it can get. RI... More

I have been here several times now and it's a nice place! Staff is super nice, seated for lunch right away, and food was server fairly quick. Love mixing the two chowders, and the craft pumpkin beer.. A big thumbs up!

We rode the East Bay Bicycle Path (nice scenery along the way) from Providence to Bristol on a Friday and rode around town looking for a lunch spot. This place was crowded and lively, so we decided to stop. They had both indoor and outdoor seating. We were greeted warmly when we walked in the door. The menu is pretty... More

Love love this place. Outside tiki bar looking out at the harbor. Cold beer and great burgers. It's a definite stop when in Bristol.

Aidans is quite inconsistant. We like to stay around town so we find ourselves at Aidans at least twice per month. After this last time I'm going to take a break for a while. Service is far from attentive, food is just okay- servers don't seem to care. Pricing is inconsistent- some times i go in and lemonade and soft... More

The service was good. Prices are fair. The food was nothing special however. The 'black and brown' grilled pork chops sounded tasty but lacked flavor. The accompanying mashed potatoes were too thin and seemed watered down.

Party of 3 for dinner-started with the Pot Sticker appetizers-delicious sauce-6 on the plate, so enough to share. Dinner was the best chicken pot pie I have had in a long time. The crust was flaky and buttery. Other entree was the chicken with mushrooms in a Bailey Irish Creme sauce, delicious also-never had a sauce like that before and... More

This was a nice discovery in Bristol R.I. during our 2014 New England vacation. My wife and I ate dinner here and we both had a delicious meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage. The pub offers many choices on the menu but we were not so hungry for a big meal. We actually split the Corned Beef and Cabbage and... More
