We had a delicious meal at federal tap house! I really enjoyed their fall sangria. Highly recommend the French onion soup and the Baked Cod. My only complaint was that dinner was brought out while we were still eating our soup. Other than that the waiter and food were fantastic!

Kind service staff. Had to wait almost thirty minutes over our reservation time for one of the two tables that could accommodate our party, which was frustrating, but staff was kind and apologetic. Waiter was very nice and attentive, good value overall and will return.

Been there a few times. My friend ordered a beer and the waiter brought blueberries in his bare hand. That’s a big no no. Shook my head when the waiter asked if he wanted blueberries. Bottom line the waiter barehanded food...No...No!. Other than that it was great.

Went for brunch and bottomless mimosas/Bloody Mary’s. Our server Shakira was really nice and attentive to our mimosa refills! So even with the 1 hour and 30 minute limit, we definitely felt that we got our money’s worth. The food was also DELICIOUS! All 3 of us got different breakfast items (breakfast flatbread, French toast and avocado toast) and they were all great. Looking forward to returning!

We sat outside here and it was a great experience! Our waitress was awesome and made some food recommendations for us since it was our first visit and we were undecided. We got some amazing grilled cheese sandwiches - so good that we are still talking about them a month later! We also had the fall sangria which was great as well.

If you are looking for a casual place to eat in Federal Hill that is not Italian, this is your place. The food isn't fancy, typical pub fare, but this is a pub so it's a perfect fit. We love apps, so Appy hour ($5 apps) was right up our alley. We enjoyed the ambiance even with Covid restrictions in place, so I assume it's even more fun when those are finally lifted. It gets 5 stars from us because we were looking for a low key, casual and fun place to eat, and it delivered.

Within 5 minutes of sitting down, the power went out. We sat, and had a few drinks while we waited for the electricity to be restored. Once it did, food was excellent. While in the dark, on of the drinks got knocked over, and sever immediate brought a replacement. When we got the bill, we were charged for the spilled drink. I thought that was a bit tacky!

Stopped for brunch today while in town visiting. Service was fabulous. Food was delicious. I got bottomless mimosas ($15!) and never once did I need to flag the waitress down. She kept the drinks constantly flowing. Hubby got western omelette & I got the Caesar salad wrap. The entire Federal Hill section was awesome & we’re so glad we stopped.

This is the second time I have been to the Federal tap House in Providence this is a great location with great service and has a mean bottomless mimosa for only $15 as long as you buy something off the brunch menu.

I was a little nervous about eating on the Hill while the pandemic was happening but I felt super safe while at the Taphouse. They had seating well spaced, the staff was masked and our table was nice and clean. Our server was great! Personable and knowledgeable. Our food was amazing! So so good. The poutine tater tots were to die for and my fish tacos were LOADED! So tasty! The drinks were well priced and delicious. 100% recommend Taphouse. Absolutely great!

Staff doesn’t communicate with each other. Waited 30 min to order. Had to ask 3 times for water. “Oh, I thought the other person brought it to you.”....Only 3 tables outside. I don’t know how they kept forgetting about us....

We were traveling and spent a night in Providence and lucked out by reserving a table at the Federal Taphouse. Service was great, we felt very safe from a COVID perspective and the food and beer choice is awesome. My husband loved the grill cheese (seriously how do they make it that good?) and my burger was excellent. The manager was kind enough to stop by to check on us and we ended up having a terrific conversation. If you are looking for a casual restaurant with good food, drinks and people- this is worth your time. And best of all, their music track was incredible but not too loud.

Our waiter, Pat, was the ONLY Server for the entire restaurant. He was great, but should not have been the only server there. Also, our outside table was not nearly large enough for four people. My husband went inside to see if we could switch, -- nobody even helped him and he said the restaurant was extremely dirty. The value for food was good because we were there for "Appy Hour", but we will not go there again. Restaurant manager: please do more to accommodate your patrons as far as cleanliness and number of available servers on each shift.

Had the Taco Tuesday special, my wife and I split 6 Taco special. We had 2 each of the chicken, steak and pork. They were a great size, lots of extra stuff in each one. They were delicious. The special came with chips and freshly made salsa. Also had the fried pickles as a app, they were one of the best fried pickles I have eaten.. They were batter lightly but still crunchy so you could taste the pickle. The sauce was good. Would highly recommend the Tacos.

Great birthday celebration. Four of us went for dinner and ended up ordering a bunch of wings and appetizers to share along with a lot of drinks. The food was fantastic and the server was nice. We were pretty loud but no one seemed annoyed and the server kept laughing along with us. Defiantly recommend. The menu is very pub food style with a huge beer list.

Our waitress Kelly was top notch! Everything she recommended (poutine, oysters, burrito bowl, steak tips) was sensational. The hot and dirty martini was the best I have ever had. I highly recommend going for drinks and food with friends.

Excellent service, our server Patrick was very attentive. We arrived in time for ‘Appy Hour’, where all apps were $5-$6. Excellent value. Good location, lots of action on Atwells St. Food was surprisingly delicious and plentiful. Def recommend.
