I have been to Parente's a few times over the years, the food remains the same. It is near Bryant College and is a go to for students and visiting parents.

Place has dirty carpet, dust and food splatter on window sills. We had to ask for a clean menu(had food stuck over it). My knife has sticky substance on it. Cole slaw was floating in mayo. Fish was soggy and mushy, Chowder was tasty and very tomato soup like. The fried clams were actually good. They are in need of... More

THE FOLLOWING HOTEL REVIEW INCLUDES A NOTE ABOUT PARENTE'S ___________________________________________________________ Excellent management service. As I have stayed at this newly renamed Holiday Inn many times, this trip I carefully reviewed the helpfulness of the management, as well as the condition and cleanliness of my room, as there has been a change in ownership. As I am a bit older, this... More

Convenient pub food close to Bryant University. Family owned business that has been around for decades. Good place to grab a quick meal and a few drinks. Service is good, the drinks are tasty.

I had a quick lunch with a colleague here, it is convenient to the Fidelity campus. Service was good and the food was average. I would eat there again. I had a hamburger with fries and a salad. The hamburger did not seem to be pre-formed but handmade.

The food is good and the prices are good. It is not fancy and the decor leaves alot to be desired but it serves it's purpose. My wife has a Delmonico Steak that was very good. The server was attentive and friendly. I would visit again.

If you are looking for a place that delivers quick, decent pub food you found it. Their nachos, buffalo tenders and fish n' chips are among our favorites. Their service and meal delivery is so quick it makes it a great place for business lunches. They have a fun bar atmosphere with plenty of tables and free popcorn.

It was the only place open late - seems the town shuts down at 10pm on Friday nights. Very, very loud, mostly drinkers and party goers. Food and service were ok, poor decor, no ambiance. It's mostly a sports bar.

This was my first time eating at this restaurant and it was worth the stop. The service was great, food done just right and plenty of it, and the beer was nice and cold. I normally get to this part of the country a few times a year and will make this a regular stop.
