Girl at front gave our table to another Greg. So our table was not available. Then she tried to put us near an open door. Nope! Manager solved it but hostess was not nice and could not do her job well.

The hostess was not as friendly and welcoming as one would expect. Curt and abrupt. Seated at a table where the air was cold as they had the doors open with a draft. We did ask to have doors closed snd they did oblige to close the exterior doors however the interior doors remained open. The crab Rangoon appetizer was not the flavor expected. Very unwelcoming taste Ali g with the sauce. The hamburgers were on the small side and blue cheese added was barely visible. The martinis were marginal in taste. Had a better experience at the Wrentham location compared to the Cranston location. Would we repeat? Probably not here.

Great food and service and I love the overall vibe of the tavern. Dozens of beers on tap, huge selection of wines, and great cocktails. The food is also delicious and their healthier options are actually substantial.

The food just wasn’t good. I had salmon.... very bland. My other friends had a burger and the Mediterranean wrap... not good. The wings had no flavor. The steak tips were good.

Sunday brunch was excellent! Best steak tips and eggs around town. Laurel was flawless with her service, between advising on brunch specials and attention to detail, not to mention also informing us about the rewards club! All in all very enjoyable, will definitely be there again soon and highly recommend to my friends!

I’ve been there many times and really this place, but on this occasion there computers were down. They couldn’t take food or drink orders. We sat around waiting for the system to come back online but after a while of waiting we left. Then we had to try and find somewhere else to go, which wasn’t easy since we didn’t have a reservation for anywhere else. I’ll go back, but if there’s another screwup like that, that’ll be it for me

Sunday Brunch with family. Unfortunately, several menu items were unavailable (kitchen ran out of sausage and French toast that day). Food arrived lukewarm and one meal was prepared wrong, had to be returned to kitchen. Very noisy for Sunday brunch and moderately high prices.

Cavernous and a bit of a machine, but reliable for a quick bite after shopping, with a strong selection of draft beers.

Reserved table 2 weeks in advance on open table and asked to be seated by window. Granted it's not a guarantee but why bother to make a reservation at 12:00 pm for lunch unless you want a specific table?
Also asked to put a candle in a dessert as we were celebrating a birthday. The hostess was reminded of this on 4/24/21 when I arrived and she agreed that this request would be accommodated, yet it did not happen.
Although the food was good and recommended, I was highly dissapointed in the service of the hostess and management of this establishment. Don't expect to have any special attention, even when it's requested in writing and verbally.

Tasty food, service was a bit slow, but we weren’t in a rush so it wasn’t terrible. But if we were in a time limited situation it might have been frustrating. Maybe they’re having the same trouble with hiring as many other places. But our server was pleasant and friendly and attentive otherwise.

Fifth time eating here. It is now one of my favorite places to dine. We drive about 40 minutes to dine here! Food is amazing. Ingredients are always fresh and the portions are huge! The ambiance is very inviting, There is a great bar area in the center of the restaurant with ample seating. Plenty of inside tables/booths, as well as an outside area and an inside area that opens up to the outside. Always super friendly staff. Our server Sophia was super friendly and professional!!! We had a great dining experience. We’ll be back again soon!!!
