Small funky place, tiny bar facing the kitchen and its whirlwind of activity. Came here for dinner, and the food was spectacular. Beer selection was small but very well chosen, with a bunch of unique stuff (Saison Pipaix on tap!??!!). Definitely worth going out of your way to try.

My last stop during my visit to Providence, and it was well worth it. Small neighborhood restaurant with funky decor. I particularly liked the roadside motel style neon "office" sign in the kitchen and the beer menu being presented on wood planks. Cool music playing. The place does get pretty busy, even on a Monday morning. Small bar, outside patio area and tables inside. The servers did very well despite being stretched way too thin. There were some delays in service but they were doing their best. My sirloin eggs benedict was excellent. Lots of great beers on tap as well as an excellent bottle list with some rarities. I found prices to be OK. Plenty of parking on the street if you donít mind walking a block or so. I will definitely be back next time Iím in Providence.

This place is awesome, but nobody should go here because I donít want to be crowded at the bar. I enjoyed the draft selection, sans the Allagash lineup. Food was fantastic, the ice cream especially. I though their bottle prices were astronomical, but they werenít anything I hadnít seen or had before, so that list wasnít particularly enticing. Focusing on the drafts is the way to go here. Come early, come often.

Stopped in for a drink with my buddies. Trendy and nice looking place. The beer menu has nothing I canít find in a decent beer store in any other state, but this is honestly the best selection youíll find of bottles anywhere in RI. Very pricey. Iíd honestly skip this place in favor of Union Station and Trinity unless beer bars with a pretty much exhaustive list of the high end import bottles available in RI is your thing and money isnt an issue. Service is excellent.

A cool restaurant. Sort of small, but the food was great and the beer list was pretty good. They had some good Belgians on draft. The service was really good, and they knew their beers. A little expensive for the alcohol though. Worth trying if in the area.

This is the best place in Providence to eat and drink, if youíre into beer and out with people who appreciate beer. Theyíre list may not be the largest (~15 drafts and 40-50 bottles), but only features three crappy macro beers (Narragansett, some corny cervesa, and Sea Dog blue berry wheat). The rest of the list features often hard-to-find limited releases and a quality, eclectic selection. A ton of Belgian beers, hearty micros, and recently, a lot of sour stuff.
The food rarely disappoints.The dishes are focused on the use of house made and local ingredients, which comes across in the freshness of the dishes. Loads of veggie and vegan options for all you body conscious consumers and local hipsters.
I have only been served by knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic staff members. The decor is ever-changing, with a few staple ironic visual motifs, like a random-pattern mosaic bathroom floor with two glass cabinets filled with star wars action figurines (hysterical!). Thereís even a 13inch TV in the bathroom that plays old cartoons and nostalgic TV series.
Just go. Itís worth it; especially at the prices they charge.

Very cool small restaurant with a surprisingly extensive and excellent beer list. Dimly lit and eccentric, though clientele seems varied. Great food both for brunch and for dinner - inventive, creative, loads of vegetarian options, house ketchup and pickles, plenty of sides to choose from with your entree. Prices for food are very reasonable (nothing over 20, lots of lighter fare around 10). Beer prices are maybe 10-20% above retail, so generally good. Service is spotty (food comes out very slowly) but seems knowledgeable (at least moderately) regarding beer selection. Nice mix of local craft, larger regional American microbrews, Germans, and Belgians - great Belgian selection. Some ridiculous draught selections - DFH 120 and WWS. for instance. Good amount of larger bottles to share (including Rodenbach GC). Occasional beer dinners with local distributors. Easy to miss from the street, even from the sidewalk. Definitely worth a visit.
