Stopped in for a late lunch on my way to an appointment. The atmosphere was of a place waiting for the sun to go down so it could wake up. We sat at a table at a window and enjoyed looking at all the musically related items. The patrons scattered around were locals well known to the waitress. Easy conversation... More

We go there every time we visit Jamestown. The live Blues is Excellent. The burgers are big. It looks like a biker bar on the outside but it's not. It isn't fancy. But it's a good time place.

Food was of standard quality. Was here for lunch, but seems to be more of a bar/live music place. Meal was slow to arrive, and only one wait person for the dining area; she was understandably irritable. Enjoyed a mixed drink. My young son and I split the nachos appetizer as our meal.

This place is noted for its live music and bar scene. We went for lunch on Saturday and were very disappointed. It was hot outside so we decided to try the Narragansett Cafe which had AC. Not a good choice. There were three people at the bar and two people at a table. We should have known to seek elsewhere.... More

Had a quick burger at the bar for lunch and had to come back for a beer after work. Love the music and the burger (and the beer!)

Stopped by Jamestown for Independence Day for something to do. Hit the cafe just at Noon for a bite. We were the first ones in, but by the time we finished, the place was filling up nicely, and for good reason. The food was solidly good. We began with some very good stuffies (lots of Quahog bits and lots of... More

Have tried many times to eat here and it has consistently been terrible food. The service is slow as well.

Three of us stopped in for lunch and a brew on a Friday afternoon. It wasn't very busy; seemed like all locals - a good sign in my book. Full bar, good draft beer choices. My reuben had lean corned beef and the rye bread was grilled perfectly. It couldn't have been any better. Grilled chicken wrap given two thumbs... More

I had nachos... Thought it's a safe bet, but the nachos were burnt. Worst nachos I've ever had in my life. My friend had fish burnt to a crisp and ordered soup that never came. She did get it taken off the bill though. We routinely ran out of drinks and it seems there was only one server for the... More

My hamburger was awesome however the open face steak sandwich was not well presented. Steak was good but it was on a piece of Texas toast It would have been better in a big roll. Chicken fingers were excellent
