“Nice, but Not Sure What Kind of Place It Is”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

As previous reviewers have noted, the transformation from Casey's is dramatic. We've been there twice, both times crowded, and finally decided that the place couldn't really decide what it was; a chophouse, or a sports bar with decent food. We had some variant of a steak both times, and the meat was excellent, and cooked as specified. The sides and condiments were fine, as was the service. The only real problem was the noise level. The basic design is a central sports bar and high-tops, with additional side rooms for dining. Modern restaurant design seems to promote crowd noise, and the sports bar design accentuates it. I suppose if my wife and I had been on a first date, it would be great: I'd have practically been nuzzling her neck to hear a word she said. If we were having a huge argument, it would have been great, too; at a normal distance from her, I couldn't hear a word she said. However, for us normal conversation was impossible. So I suppose we'll go back, but it will be maybe in the middle of a snowstorm on Tuesday, when there won't be so much of a mob scene. I suppose, in a way, this is a complement, but the evening would not be a good time to go if you're discussing business.

“So much more than a chophouse!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

A great local addition to limited South Kingstown/Narragansett restaurant choices. Those who have been to Casey's will not believe this was ever the same place. Great service, consistent food, nice wine list. Great atmosphere, especially in the 191 Room. Have been here to celebrate a friend's birthday, for business dinners, and for just a drink/app at the bar. All positive experiences.

“A Keeper for Sure !”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

It was a enjoyable evening as we decided to eat at the bar. Saturday night is always busy and with restaurant week added to this Event. The service was still outstanding. Food, drinks and desert was very good. A return visit is mandatory.

“Fantastic experience all around!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

The service throughout the entire evening was top notch. Our table crumbs were swept and our water and wine glasses were full at all times!The shrimp cocktail were top quality and the sauce contained just enough horseradish. At our waitress' suggestion, my husband and I each enjoyed a Prime Sirloin strip. The steaks were delicious and cooked to temperature perfectly (medium for me, medium/rare for him). The wine selection contained something for everyone's taste and budget. We will definitely return with friends!
