This a decent enough chain-style brewpub. Pretty reminiscent of a Rock Bottom from an ambiance perspective. I didnít try the food, but the beers ranged from boring to quite nice. Really enjoyed the Vanilla Bean and Clove Stout. The regular line-up was less exciting. Bartender was friendly enough. Very conveniently located to our hotel, which was a major plus.

Classic pub fare and their own beers, very much like Trinity with slightly better food.

This has been here a while and for some reason I hadnít been yet. Overall, not bad, kind of a chain-y feel, but overall it was an OK experience. Will be back.

A clean, well positioned brew pub serving good beer. We came in as the kitchen was closing but had eaten elsewhere anyway. The beers were fresh and served quickly. There were relatively few people in here late on a Thursday night.

Talkin bout the ghetto. The funky funky ghetto. Dank pub in the heart of city. Dangerously close to the train station and engulfed by interestingly clothed street walking cheetahs.

Aug 27, 2012: Large place below street level in the center of downtown. Small patio. Staff were friendly and efficient, didnít try the food, but it looked good as it went by. The big disappointment was the beer. The IPA was OK, but they can keep the rest. Second visit, April 20, 2014: beers are much improved, especially the specials and cask. Flights of five are seven bucks, and the others are available for a buck fifty each, nine beers total. Several of their beers have names "borrowed" from other breweries; maybe they should name their next beer "Cease & Desist."

Very well located brewpub in center Providence. Seems to be a University student hangout place but it sure isnít a dive bar. To the contrary, the place is very modern, feels a bit like a chain, not your neighbourhood tavern. Nice patio where you have a view on downtown buildings. They had 7 beers on tap, I skipped over what seemed like entry level beers and had a pint of Simcoe IPA (good) and a the Coffee Bean Porter (surprisingly very good and original). Two beers is probably too small of a sample to judge the entire lineup but I was very happy with the quality of my two beers. We ate at Trinity (the other brewpub in town) but from what I saw of the food, it looked very nice and went far beyond the usual basic pub fare. I preferred Trinity but Union Station was really worth a stop for me.

Smallish place, very dark lighting and dark woods. This is located in a very nice area of Providence. Go during Waterfire. Trust me. The bartender was a tad bit patronizing but was pretty friendly and helpful. I did not try the food but the menu did look good. The sampler was a little pricy, but not too bad. I kinda feared the beers here since its a chain, and I was pleasantly surprised. Good stuff. Parking was easy but I bet it gets real tough late in the afternoon. Very close to the main bus terminal so thatís an option and I imagine that you could just part at the mall too. Overall I quite enjoyed stopping here.

Nice place, though few beers to choose from. Food is above average pub fare, with a very good pot pie and meatloaf.

A bit of a stale corporate feel here. So, if youíre looking for a place to hang this ainít it-not yet anyway. The beer selection is enjoyable, the food is pretty good. It is worth checking out every now and then.
