This is an OK place. A little boisterous for me, but depends on the timing. Food is always halfway decent, nothing particularly outstanding. They do have the sampler racks, but the beer selection is kind of pedestrian and I have never seen it change much. Used to be a regular stop when one of my kids was at URI, but wouldnít drive the hour and a half jus to go here. Waitstaff could be a little snotty at times. Since wife and I are older, we noticed it more than the average college kid. Donít love it, donít hate it.

69 Beers! A lot of cool good stuff on tap at a decent value, menu is consistently changing. Not out of this world but maybe the best restaurants with bar in Wakefield

Rambling building with lots of oak and memorabilia, nice selection with many standards of micro industry. Good food and sample racks available.

This is one of the local bars I frequent in RI frequently, though I do live 40 minutes away. They have what 69 (or something) beers on tap. They have quite a few regional brews and this is a very good place to introduce yourself to a variety of different beers. To the purist this is no Trinity or Union Station Brewhouse, but a notch below microbrew. The food is fabulous pub grub with brick oven pizza. They serve one of the best burgers in RI IMHO.

This is a great place to bring people, but not to go regularly if youíre looking to try the latest beers. They have a large selection, with some nice choices, but the list hardly ever changes and it can get a little frustrating for those trying to try something different.

While some may say this place has the "best beer selection in Rhode Island," it does not. It has a "largest beer selection in Rhode Island." Thereís a difference. The selections are mostly regional craft beer, but nothing special. Few if any small batch beers, no casks, and nothing that I couldnít find elsewhere. Avoid on weekends during the school year or risk being mobbed by URI students.
The food is reasonably good, and the sampler rack gives you an opportunity to have a few regional beers that might be new to you if youíre a visitor. But in my opinion, Iíd rather have the choice of 10 great beers than 69 mediocre beers.

Proper RI pub. 69 draught brews available and a great menu backed-up with a solid staff of professionals. Superb representation of beers, mainly local (new england), respectable regional, and a fairly nice international offering. I make it a priority with each visit to little Rhody. Good whiskey selection as well.

Arrived in Wakefield thirsty. Rambling place with a lot of beers on tap. Amusing and interesting bar area with various dining booths and tables. Dollar bills all over the tap room with a real dead tree left in the main dining area.? Plenty of brews on tap with regional, locals, a decent selection. Food was good and service was great. This must be a hopping place in summer so glad we came in the off season. Worth a visit. Liked the beauty in the eye of the beer holder shirt.. nice!

I was excited to come to Mews Tavern & Celtic Bar, as it was only about 3.5 miles from the house we rented. The place is easy to find on Main street. The narrow drive way opens to a spacious parking lot. The place is a browns wood tile old stables. The bar on the second floor is slanted so they could wash out the horse manure. Probably not some thing they advertize as one of the loacl Fisherman mentioned it to me. My father-in-law and I were one of the first people there at 12:00. We sat in the down stairs bar. The upstairs is a Celtic Bar. 69 Taps and not much I have never had. I started with the Brooklyn Sorachi Ace Saison. It seems all Beers are served in American Pint glasses. The food was average bar fare. The staff was friendly and courteous (especially after I had to perform the Heimlich maneuver on my father-in-law, no lie). I tried a sampler rack of 4, which turn out are 7 oz glasses. The Skinny glasses that winden towards the top that old guys drink Schlitz out of. The 7 oz. pour seemed like a great idea but I hate the glass and rack. The New England beers I tried were average at best except for the Peak Organic IPA. This like some other pseudo beer bars where the bar manager who picks these is over influenced by the beer reps instead of his or her own passion for the beer. Still a descent place that I would go to again.

This came across as an average, dark, dank, cold, sports bar. They serve all their beers in iced shaker pints that taste like the freezer! Gross. Too many TVs. Unfortunately, this is another example of a sports bar brutalizing craft beer. The bartender was nice, but Iím cold, so I have to leave.
Updated. I think I hate this place even more, because itís the only beer bar in a reasonable distance that serves good beer, but itís a completely wretched place. Beers are overpriced, the crowd is moronic, the waitstaff difficult, and the ambiance detestable. Ugh.
