Our waitress was amazing. Very attentive and on top of everything. The ambiance is super laid back, can definitely wear jeans and hang with the family. The food was amazing, so many varieties which is awesome when It came down to multiple tastes. I would go again and again!

We were visiting our son at Providence College for the day. Made a reservation for dinner after the basketball game...the manager was so accommodating regarding leaving our car at the valet. We we got to the restaurant, our table was ready! Our waiter, Dylan, was super nice and very accommodating as well!! The food was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience!! We will definitely be back!!!

Food and service were excellent. The short ribs were the perfect food for a cold winter day. The interior could use some improvement especially the ladies room.

We had SO much fun brunching pre-Super Bowl. Bottomless mimosas is a great value :) and I really liked the bloody Mary’s which is rare for me. Cheers!

I had stopped in one evening for an early (4:00 PM) business dinner with a client and as such the dinner crowd had yet to arrive. We ate at the bar and our service and meal were great. I was able to observe the restaurant come to life as the evening crowd rolled in. I was impressed and made a mental note that I needed to bring my wife back to experience the cozy yet vibrant atmosphere. My wife and I returned with another couple based on what I had shared. We were not disappointed. Our waitress was tremendous. She walked us through some questions we had about the menu and offered some input on specials for that night. She was attentive, responsive and sociable throughout the evening. After we were done, there was complete consensus among my wife and our friends that coming here had been a great choice. We will definitely be returning.

Last minute business dinner for an employees last day, and the choice turned out fantastic. All three entrees in my group exceeded expectations. Ahi tuna nachos appetizer was exceptional. That is one app that will get me back sooner rather than later. Service was very good. Will be returning again in the next few weeks to try some other items on the menu.

We have visited the taphouse several times and the service and food are consistently very good. The menu had changed a bit since our last visit, but we found a couple of new items to try and enjoyed everything very much. A favorite was the mozzarella sticks. We're not sure what the secret ingredients are, but they were very good! The staff is very good about handling food allergies. Two of us had burgers and really enjoyed them and the chicken wings were excellent. Good beer choices and fun atmosphere. Lively but not so loud that we couldn't enjoy our conversation. Our waitress was terrific and the busboy was exceptional in going above and beyond to make sure that we had what we needed and was quick to help us when we spilled some water. It was a small but kind gesture and he smiled and chatted as he changed the paper on the table.

Great food and beer selections!! It did take about 20 minutes to get our oysters because they said they didn't shuck them 'that late' when it was 7pm, but once they came out everything was awesome!!

Food was ok, The fries are frozen. Requested hi top table when making reservations, but we were seated near the kitchen in a half empty restaurant. Our server was polite and enthusiastic she knew the food and beer menus well.

We ended up at Federal Taphouse after not being able to get a table at another restaurant, and I'm glad it worked out that way. Our waitress was great, the bottomless mimosas were delicious and I especially loved the smokey bacon on the side of my french toast.

Our waitress was super friendly, made us feel very welcome and comfortable! Even though we are from out of state, she even said I looked familiar! Just had that great neighborhood feel to it. The food was FANTASTIC. We had the buffalo chicken dip as an appetizer. I had the carne asada tacos and my husband had the bbq pulled pork grilled cheese sandwich. So incredibly good, everything was very fresh, french fries were phenomenal! I had a "tiny tini" of the Anne Bonnie martini, it was delicious and the perfect size for a late afternoon/early evening meal. Pretty quick walk from the Hilton. Would certainly recommend and hope to visit again ourselves!

Great food and atmosphere! Staff are friendly and service was pretty good. The blueberry lemonade drink was refreshing and delicious! The potstickers were better than the fried pickles for appetizers. My friend enjoyed the Tuesday taco special and the buffalo chicken wrap was perfect! Beignets for dessert were the perfect end to a wonderful meal!
