Excellent bartender and good food

Just purchased a new home and went to PJ's for a celebration lunch. Good selection of beer (although more draft IPAs would be appreciated) and the food was good. I had the salmon BLT and my girlfriend had the caesar salad. Would go again.

Pour Judgment is what we exercised when we decided to eat here. The menu that is listed here on TA is not the menu that is available at the restaurant. Not even close. We ordered burgers and both orders were wrong. The bacon cheeseburger came with no bacon and the wrong cheese. The cheeseburger that I requested medium rare came... More

This is one of the best burgers I've ever had! We enjoyed two seats at the bar... ate, drank, and played cards all afternoon! And everyone pretty much knows everyone else!

My favorite place in Newport by far. Great staff, superb rotating beer selection, and fantastic pub food. It can get crowded, so come early.

Met John, the bar manager at the Chile Cook Off this weekend. After a great sampling of chile, a casual conversation with john and witnessing a great list of beers and ciders on draft, we made Pour Judgement a stop during our 2 day visit. Upon entering the gastropub you cant help but notice the cool vibe which is achieved... More

Pour Judgement is proof positive that great food does not have to be complicated or trendy. Of particular note are the burgers and home-made fries with gouda dip. The Buffalo chicken empanadas were fantastic. Best draft beer selection in Newport. This is a place not to be missed.

Came in for dinner on a Friday night. Long wait for a table but we were able to sit at the bar after only a few minute wait. Really nice craft beer selection and the food was excellent. Little neck app was the next we have had in RI and the burger was excellent. Can't wait to go back!

My wife, son, and I decided to try this place for lunch after stopping for a beer over the summer. The atmosphere is unique with an eclectic mix of decorations and memorabilia adorning the walls. Additionally, the dark and cozy ambiance, and very long mahogany bar made this place quite inviting. The grass fed burgers and fries were excellent. The... More

Get the Black Bean Burger, it is unlike any burger you'll find or eat anywhere! It's amazing! And the beer selection is wonderful.

To me, a bar is like a barber shop. I should be able to talk about whatever I want with the person in the chair next to me. If the person cutting my hair wants to chime in, great; so long as they don't inhibit the conversation. I know the second I mention Fox News most people will write me... More
