“Nice little neighborhood place”
Reviewed August 13, 2007

The Coddington Brewery is a nice alternative to the parade of chain restaurants that are just down the street on the main drag (West Main) in Middletown, RI. With reasonable prices (especially in the pricy Newport area), friendly service, pleasant ambience, clean restrooms and a kitchen willing to make adustments to meet dietary restrictions (leave off the sauce please), our family had several pleasant dinners there. The food was very good. Fish courses were cooked just right, pasta, chicken parm and pizza were tasty, vegetables and the salads were fresh. Not only would we go back there, we did.

“Corporate bland.”
Reviewed August 4, 2007

I was sorely disappointed with this place after a recent visit. Where to even begin!
1. Atmosphere: A complete lack of it. This is basically a restaurant with a bar in the corner, and the vibe of a chain establishment is strong. No real identity here, and the place reeks of plastic/new carpet.
2. Bartenders: Lame. Some 75 year old with no personality who got cranky when he had to draw up a couple of sample trays. Offered no comment on any of the beers.
3. Food: Appeared to be standard food-service issue, average selection.
4. The Beer: Varied from passable to practically undrinkable. Watermelon Ale--should be illegal. What an awful concept. Blueberry Ale--I had to force myself to finish it. A weak ale masked with sickly fruit flavor. IPA unremarkable. Altbier quaffable, but far from transcendent. Porter actually passable. Stout bland, inoffensive. As a matter of fact, all the beers were just....boring. This place is obviously geared to wimps who want to pretend that they are drinking micros. Add to that, the final insult--I actually saw someone drinking a Budweiser in here. 'Nuff said.
