    The place is really cool. Lots of TV's, pool tables, shuffleboard and I heard there are karaoke rooms as well. The coolest part is personal TV's at each booth. We had gone to watch the USA vs Colombia soccer game. And it was awesome to have a TV to watch while we drank and ate right at our booth.

    Loved the warehouse atmosphere. The calamari appetizer was crispy with a little hit red pepper and a tartar sauce like dipping sauce. Great homemade chips with pub cheese. Edamame has spicy sriracha sauce..delicious! Riesling was sweet and priced right. I will be back!

    We went for dinner and drinks pre show at the PPAC. Plenty of parking in the area and a fun feel to the place. Our server, Greg, was fun, engaging and very knowledgeable of the beer and menu items. The food was creative and very well prepared. Portions were generous and an over all great value.

    It was very loud. The service was fair. Some ordered appetizers as their meal and they were brought out with the soups and salads instead of with everyone else's dinner. Food was ok - nothing spectacular. The chowder was great. The nachos had fake cheese on them. I probably would not return.

    I went to G Pub with 16 friends for the start of a bachelor party. The food was great and inexpensive. They had a good beer selection. We spent most of out time playing shuffleboard and pool. I was surprised the place wasn't busy at all. I would definitely go back the next time I am on PROV.

    G Pub atmosphere was friendly and comfortable- with volume. There were interesting drinks and food selections on the menu. Neither lived up to their description or price. Take a few dollars off per item- or make them a bit bigger- and then I could see eating there in a pinch. Was that really pastrami? The waiters were quite nice and accommodating but could have used a bit more basic training-. You do not clear dishes while other people in the party are still eating nor while customer is still eating- for one example.

    I must start by saying I really like the ProvG Pub. But my third trip there was a bit frustrating. They were clearly understaffed for a lunch rush. The waitresses blamed the kitchen for being overloaded. The noise level was a little higher than usual. When the food came, it was very good, just what I ordered, and served hot or cold, as applicable. But to do business in Downcity, you have to know your key audience and their eating habbits or you will become a relic quickly.

    Had never tried G Pub but had heard good things. Was very impressed with design of he restaurant. Our server ROCKED IT! She pretty much gave us a virtual tour of the rest of the renovated Providence Gas Company building. The way she described everything we could picture what it would look like. Food sounded impressive from the menu and from our server's description. We had high expectations and were a little let down. Perhaps they're still getting the kinks out in the kitchen. We all said we would go back for the atmosphere and the service for cocktails (which were very cool...wine on tap!) but the food wouldn't bring us back - it also wouldn't keep us away.

    Went to dinner on Friday night as it was recommended by one of my neighbors. Mad a reservation for 8:00 PM as it was an option to do so. When my fiance and I arrived it was not very busy which was kind of surprising to me as it was a Friday night. The hostess was very nice and when I told her I had a reservation for 8:00 PM she knew who I was right away. Our waitress seemed new so she was not very attentive but was pleasant. This was our first experience with a Gastropub so we didn't really know what to expect. The food was excellent but the portion sizes were not overwhelming to say the least and a lot of it was a la carte. It had subway tiles on the walls which made it echo but it was not too bad. Overall not a bad experience.

    G Pub is a great place to go whether you are out for a drink or looking for a great meal (or both of course). The atmosphere is modern upscale/industrial looking. There are games like pool and shuffleboard, which is a plus; however these games can add to the high noise level. Overall I've enjoyed myself at G Pub!

    We had a lovely time at G pub this past Friday night, everything was amazing. The atmosphere was very loud and energetic as we walked in but again, it was a Friday night. Our waitress was lovely, very upbeat and attentive. We started off with Pulled Pork Nachos which were delicious and messy, as nachos should be. For entrées we had the Meat & Potatoes and the Cowboy Steak. The Meat & Potatoes was a solid dish, the sides were excellent. Cowboy Steak was just as excellent, cheddar cheese grits? YES PLEASE. We ended the evening with two desserts, because why not. The white trash trifle was delightful and the fudged it was a dream come true. We will without a doubt be back.

    The decor of the place is great. There was a little bit of a scramble finding our reservation but eventually we got a table next to the bar which was fine. Our waitress was fantastic--super friendly and great service. Our food was so-so--and kind of cold even though it was supposed to be hot. This place is great for big groups--people can roam around and they seem to accomodate big groups really well. Wish the food was more special and we would go back.

    I had a 715 reservation. The table that they were planning to put our party was just being served their dinner at 715, so the earliest we would get to our table was probably 745.. They had a few other tables that were open, and had been unoccupied for a good hour, and would have accommodated my group, but they refused to sit us at any of the other open tables, as they were "reserved". I would have understood if the place was packed and there were no open seats, but to see open tables since 6pm and be told they can only sit u at this one specific table was not appreciated. We ended up leaving and going to Bar Louie for dinner and to watch the Friars game.

    SenorChubChub
    Dined on 3/15/2014
    When you enter G Pub through its unassuming facade, a single glass paned door, you don't really expect much. Then you descend down into a super, beautiful industrial space with features that quietly reveal themselves i.e. backlit wood panels, the grain of wood on the booth tables, the fact that the chefs are big, bearded fellows (never trust a skinny cook.) The food is deconstructed, pub faire and the insanely low prices of said food will make you expect lesser quality, fret not you get pristine quality for the dough you are dishing out. The one draw back is that the beer menu does not impress me much, I am admittedly a giant beer snob but there is a precedent for amazing food paired with complex, hard-to-find beer on draft.

    Made a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes for a table when there were SEVERAL empty. Watched 3 people "bus" a table or stand around and talk with a few napkins in hand. No one seems to work with a sense of urgency, but they have lots of excuses. Once seated it took forever for a waitress to come and take our orders. And the wait was extremely long for bar food..nachos and sandwiches. The bar itself was busy but the restaurant area was not. However once the food finally arrived it was fantastic. Hopefully they work out the staff kinks because we would actually like to go back.
