This restaurant is just outside of Bryant University. I found the food to be typical pub fare with its choice of meals and burgers 🍔 and all the other delectable delights. The atmosphere is comfortable and the food is good. What more can one ask for in this type of restaurant. A good stop ✋ for a good meal. Enjoy!

This restaurant has been around a long time and usually ignored. It is a homey type place with good old standard comfort food. Not a dining out type of place but good food and good portions for the price. Looks kind of old but clean and neat. Service is very good and efficient.

From the appetizer to the dessert the food was so good, we would definitely go back. Our waitress was fantastic, actually one of the best waitresses we have had. Very quaint little restaurant.

A great stop for families visiting Bryant or a close get away for students. This restaurant provided local flavor at a reasonable price. We have visited each time we visit our son and have always come away satisfied and happy with our choice. Clam chowder is as good as it gets and the fish and chips are the best.

Nice pub, friendly service. Great selection of beer and nice finger food. Burgers are very good. Others had different dishes which they said was very good.

I ate here a few weeks ago and had the fried clams. They were excellent! I also had the chicken wings and tastes a few other appetizers. The restaurant needs some updating but the food was very good.

Whenever we go see my daughter in Providence we always go out of the way to have dinner at this little spot we found a couple years ago. Great food with awesome service... If you're ever up in the area it is definitely a must-go place!!!

They are located literally at the opening of Bryant University. This was our second visit and it was just as good as the first. We started with Buffalo wings. They were just what you would expect from a pub. I had the French dip sandwich which was really good. The roll was nice and crispy and the roast beef was... More

We had a great experience. We had a party of 6 and everybody enjoyed their meals. Their Calamari Giovanni was yummy and very crispy. We had the fajitas, blakened swordfish and chicken parm for our entrees. I had never been but my boyfriend had been there years ago. I will definitely go back again

Hubbyhad chicken parm and it was quite good, and BIG. I had the swordfish grilled special, quite good, I was surprised. A VERY casual place, but good for the money. We wanted casual so it suited us. A step above diner, so you get what you may expect. But our food was very good.

Thank sfrisino
