We go here regularly for the beer selection. The food is very good for a pub. The breakfast is a must try on the weekends. Whether you're watching a sporting event or just getting drinks after work, this place has an incredible selection of drafts and bottles at very good prices.

Have visited this place since first going there years ago when it was the East End cafe. This is truly a local joint, with local loyal clientele, down-home atmosphere with friendly waitresses, and a feel that you are in a tavern like the one in Cheers. Food is typical pub grub but a a step up in menu selections not generally found in locals and with pretty decent quality ingredients, preparation, and presentation. Which probably accounts for the fact that the cafe almost always has a full or nearly full house. They do a great job on with BBQ ribs! Although the place is not elegant, the food is very good, the beer selections on tap and bottled are extensive, and the service is welcoming, friendly, and efficient. Try it for a change of pace!

The draw is the extensive beer selection 150+, there is a good rotation of the beers with seasonal variation.

The food is your typical pub grub and if you are looking for a culinary experience besides the beer you will not find it here. Having that said the burgers are great, the pulled pork is awesome. I don't understand why they can't make a beer battered fish and chips. Talking about chips or fries these aren't the best.

If you love trying new beers this is a great place for you plenty of selection and they are always bringing in new beers to add to their list. The food wasn't great but it was good, i had the corned beef and cabbage and found the beef to be very dry. The service was phenomenal once the waiter learned that it was our first time there he made some suggestions, and helped my fiance pick out a good variety of beer for his "flight" (a selection of 4-6 beers that are served in smaller trial sized glasses). Don't let the parking lot fool you, we thought the place would be packed since the parking lot was but there was plenty of seat available both at the bar and at tables.
I will be going back for the beer, service, and also to give the food another try.

One of my favorite places in Rhode Island! Huge beer list and fantastic bar atmosphere. The service is super friendly and they have great entertainment. From trivia to brewery visits, it's always a fun time. They have a pretty big menu and the food is outstanding. I love the new semi-outdoor beer garden they added on, it's such a blast when the weather warms up! There's always ample parking and the prices are very fair.
