Gastro Pub
G Pub is a modern gastropub with a speakeasy feel and a scratch kitchen that broadcasts every game, every night. Opened in 2014, G Pub features an eclectic mix of traditional pub food and drink favorites with an artisanal approach. Located in the basement of the Providence G, which was formerly the Providence Gas Building, the décor is based on the building’s original 1920’s framework. Rustic raw materials blend with modern touches, creating a warm and welcoming ambiance. Despite its historic past and decor, the G Pub offers all of the modern amenities one would expect in a pub today, including 17 LED TV’s, billiards, shuffleboard, air hockey and much more.
*We do have a sister restaurant, the Rooftop at the Providence G, if you would like to make reservations for the Rooftop, please visit: https://www.opentable.com/rooftop-at-providence-g?covers=2&dateTime=2017-07-20%2019%3A00

Nachos were delicious! The tuna wrap did not have much tuna in it, which was disappointing. The seasonal sangria was tasty, but very sweet.

There was some kind of "The Office" pub crawl going on causing the bar area to be overcrowded. The noise was so excessive that the waitstaff couldn't hear orders properly, which caused incorrect drinks to be delivered.

Every thing was great except for the fact the waitress messed up my husband's order. It took an additional 15 minutes for his food to come out after the rest of the tables. Which made my husband upset. I would have liked to see a manager come over and compensate something for it. That would have made the night 10 out 10. Instead I would say 6 out 10.

Drinks were very weak.
They closed over 30 minutes early.
Bartenders were chatting among themselves even though people were waiting to order drinks.
They decided to pull the tables apart literally yanking my elbow out from were it was resting.

Our meal at G Pub was delicious and exactly what we were looking for prior to seeing a show at PPAC. The lighting could have been a little brighter at that time of day (6p) and the music was a little loud - we were a group of 5 meeting to have conversation. Unfortunately due to the location of the speakers (quite a few, everywhere) it made it difficult to talk.

Nice sports bar overall, has pool table and foosball and tons of TVs. Beer selection good. Food wasn't very good however. Probably good place for beer and appetizers but wouldn't generally recommend for dinner.

Went for early dinner after a show; food was yummy. Wine was eh. I guess that’s my fault for ordering wine at a pub which specializes in beers. good prices; cool atmosphere.

Had to wait for our reservation, after being seated waited another 20 min before having to go back to the hostess to get a server. Server took our order, appetizers and dinner came out at the same time. Had to go back to the hostess to get our check as our server disappeared? Worst experience we have ever had at GPub.

Put the short rib grilled cheese back on the menu and maybe you’ll see us back.

This is the perfect place to go before a show at the PPAC. The bloody mary's are excellent. That was the best part. Decent nachos but needed more cheese. Service was friendly. My daughter had mac and cheese. Kind of blah. Grilled asparagus very good but small portion. Warm pretzel with cheese was just okay. Comfortable booths and we would go back again.

Arrived to find that they were a stop on an 80s themed pub crawl. The staff seemed surprised by this, but were doing their best to serve the people who had reservations, while being completely overwhelmed by a herd of people who looked way too old to be that hammered at 6:00 on a Saturday.

I think GPub did their best, but the place was a complete circus.

Went there with 2 other couples, all in our early 50's. Clearly, we were older then the mostly college crowd, however it was PC Parents weekend so we were fine. The food was great, mostly bar food but really good. Drinks were cold, service was good and they had foosball! What more do you need?

Bustling bar atmosphere with lively music and televisions plastering the walls. Kid friendly also. Food is very good and good value for money generally. Recommend for a laid-back dinner when you want better than chain restaurants for prices that are only a little bit higher.

Not our kind of place. We didn’t really mind it that much, but it is clearly a college drinking place. We didn’t think the food was much better than a chain restaurant. I didn’t eat dessert - they only had one! And it was chocolate which I just don’t do much of. The pretzels taste best with honey mustard that we asked for. The cheese dip had no real flavor. The service was stellar!

I've been to GPub a number of times, even on other PPAC event nights. But these guys were totally overwhelmed tonight. We waited an hour and 20 minutes for 2 burgers and a shrimp taco to arrive. Others who arrived after us were served before us. When our waiter stopped by with our appetizer (after 45 minutes) he said our food would be right out. 5 minutes when by. Then 10, then 20. I flagged down another server and she brought us the check. I told her, I'm happy to pay, but we would like our food first. She was stunned. The manager did come over and apologize a couple of times.

But this was a problem of their own doing. They knew it would be a crush before the show at PPAC, but they still took dozens of reservations all at the same time and put themselves in a position where they were bound to get behind and not be able to get back out of the weeds. We got our food and had to eat in < 10 minutes in order to arrive at the show on time. While it's convenient for PPAC I'm not coming back again when I have a show to catch.

We went for a pre-PPAC dinner. Loved that we could request a high-top table, which was available. Initially, when we got there, it was LOUD! The volume did quiet down some as we ate, but it's definitely "vibrant"! The food was good. My wife's salad with butternut squash and other goodies was excellent, albeit heavy on the greens and a tad light on the "other goodies". Not sure if it was really worth $15. Likewise, my burger, which I ordered medium-rare was more like medium-well. Not crisped, but definitely more done than an aficionado would prefer. The toppings and flavor were great, however! All in all, not a bad value for the PPAC neighborhood - we were out the door for under $100, including a full bottle of good wine, so no complaints there. The food was good, but we'll likely explore a bit more the next time we're in the neighborhood.

It was fine - slow service, we had minor requests that were forgotten. Our beers were also forgotten for almost 20 minutes. The server was apologetic which was fine but overall it was kind of overpriced for what it was and for what we got.

Overall the food was good, my husband and I split 3 appetizers and a main course for dinner and it was good portion sizing. The appetizers were delicious, staff was great and the atmosphere lively and enjoyable.

However, I’d watched a Phantom Gourmet episode on the restaurant and was looking forward to trying their chicken and waffles, which the chef described as “nothing you’ve ever tasted before” while they cut to him battering chicken wings, legs and thighs. So I was beyond disappointed when the chicken and waffles came out with four sad pieces of chicken tenders that had no crunch and no flavor. I wanted to cry, where was the delicious fried chicken I was expecting?? The chicken and waffles is nothing special and was my whole reason for choosing this restaurant, I felt like I was baited (by Phantom Gourmet episode) and then there was a massive switch.
