Old bay is a good place in New Brunswick to grab a good beer and a bit to eat. The place is fairly classy but not over the top. They will always have good craft beer on tap. though nothing to go out of your way for. Only problem is that they are pricey. This is a bar that i gladly go to on any occasion.
place has a great selection of beers on tap always. when bands play itís a pretty good time. 2 levels make for a decent amount of room for the amount of people that frequent the place. because itís a college town it definately can get packed in and the cover charge is stupid but mostly worth it. service is pretty good considering how many people are standing at the bar on a weekend night. nice outside area to sit in during the summer as well. and has heaters during the colder months.
I love going to this place if I go to New Brunswick. Their beer selection is the best out of any bar Iíve been to in the area, and it changes constantly; They have great stuff on draft and bottled. The one time I ate there was during their Mardi Gras fest and I must say the food was not only authentic but very good as well. The bartenders always seem to know their stuff and work quickly to get your drinks. My only issue is the bar area downstairs is VERY tiny and it gets cramped easily. The saving grace here is the outdoor patio to get some air. Highly recommended.
Two words: ice cold craft beer and heavy frosted mugs. Ugh. They have a decent selection of regional craft beers, but prices are a nip high and the beers arenít served well. The food was mediocre-plus. I had Crawfish Etoufee where a few of the mud bugs were past their prime, which was unfortunate considering how good the base was. Meh.
my hang out for when i want to be close to RU but not remember the easton ave bars

Overpriced and bad service. I?ve been there twice, and both times the waiter was very rude. The food is pretty good for the style, but the service is not worth it. Especially at prices that are at least 50% higher than they should be.
Beer is good tho.
Nice place to stop for a beer. They donít make their own but have a large selection of mini brews on tap. The bar is set off from the dining room so action in one area is oblivious to patrons in the other. The bartender knew his beers and allowed small samples as we talked about the merits and quality of his selection. A bar patron, who joined into our conversations was enjoying a tempting plate of groceries. looked good to me.
