Located in the heart of Providence’s downtown district, our former train station-turned-brew pub features classic pub fare, exceptional craft beers from all around New England, and a select few of our own award-winning beers that are brewed on site.

Nestled inside a courtyard that is a popular place to dine in the warmer months, you will feel the pulse of Providence but experience the warmth and charm of a neighborhood establishment. Our high ceilings, exposed brick and dark wood throughout provide unique character and ambiance.


Whether you are a local Rhode Islander or visiting Providence for a convention, vacation, business meeting, sporting event or concert, we welcome you to USB!

Always a solid stop. New chef expanding the menu soon. Five of their beers on tap and a great selection of guest beers and wines.

Staff very friendly…food was decent, not great. Was there for early lunch so didn’t have any beers, which may be shortchanging the experience…

Fun, lively pub style brewery offering great food and service! 4 of us enjoyed several drinks and varied dinners on a Saturday night. We sat outside on the patio, which was cute. Excellent experience, I would definitely go back.

I realize with Covid that everyone is experiencing staff shortages and I hope this was the case. We received the wrong drink and then one entrée never arrived which ended up being fine because the appetizer portions were big and that was enough.
I would probably give them another chance when things settle down.

Excellent service, knowledgeable about their beer, atmosphere was fun and relaxed. The food we ordered was fine except the nachos, so get a different app! Other than that, great little place!

Came here for dinner and were seated outside. It took 25 minutes for a server to come to the table, and another 35-40 minutes to get food. Food was just ok, I got a salad with chicken and the chicken was very dry, unable to be cut with the plastic cutlery we were given. Don’t know if I would come back

The food was mediocre at best with a Mediterranean salad laced with mounds of hot peppers making it just about inedible.
Neither of the stalls in the women’s bathroom could be latched to stay closed.
The service was very good as was the beer.

Go for the beer, skip the food. Nachos, wings, etc are awful. Pretty bad when a beer joint can’t pull off basic bar food.

Great food (one of the best burgers I've had actually), and great beer selections. However the service was extremely slow. Took 5 minutes to order our beer,, but almost 30 minutes to order our food. Food came quick after ordered, but then took 30-40 minutes to get our check after we had to ask for it. So unless you have 2 hours to kill, I wouldn't recommend. However, if you do the food, beer, and good times with friends is worth it.

We were able to eat outside which was great, however the people at the table behind ours kept smoking - which was really inconsiderate. The food was delicious, and the beer was also very good. We are mug club members and love USB!

Our experience started off great until we got our food and drinks. It was extremely loud, and my wife who is young (23F) had trouble with the noise so much she got a giant migraine. The drinks were okay (a bit watered down) and the food was okay but the portions were extreme inconsistent. It was okay but we won’t be returning. The service however was great however!

The waitress was drunk. Messed up the order and drinks after being corrected and confirming twice. One person in the kitchen with no front house help. Would not return.

I have to say that my husband and I were very disappointed in our most recent visit. Service was horrible, had to flag down servers to ask for another drink, pepper, etc.. My meat was ordered med rare and half of the meat was extremely rare! not a big deal, I sent half it back to be seared a little more. There were no Kalamata olives on the mediterranean salad, which I didn't notice at first, when we flagged someone down to bring the check I mentioned it, I said "Are you out of Kalamata olives?" she said " I think so." It just seemed like a very unorganized atmosphere. Not very impressed.

Servers and bartender were great. With service industry being understaffed lately the hustle is real. Food and Beer were a wonderful welcome after running 26.2 miles that morning!

We had a reservation and weren’t seated for about 30 minutes. We ordered everything when we sat down because we were so hungry. We ordered a pitcher of white sangria, the waitress brought us the wrong one and said if we didn’t like it she’d replace it. We didn’t like it but she never came back to ask if it was okay or to replace it. The food took about an hour and a half to come out. We were expecting a 1:00 lunch, we didn’t end up leaving there until about 4.

Not much to review here. After 45 minutes, we hadn't receive any food. The waitress apologized and said that there was only one person in the kitchen. We walked out. Will not be back.

Long-time patrons but haven’t been a while. Good food. Very limited menu, hoping it will expand as capacity does. Really miss their pizza. Interior is dated by a few decades. Server was terrific and gave great recommendations. Would love to see Union Station be revived a bit as the economy comes back. Fingers crossed!

A really great place with a good menu, awesome drinks and great service. Very good: Our dining companions liked their entrees (Steak & Taters for him, Cubano for her), my entree (Teeve's Chicken Enchiladas) was great, the wings app (with House BBQ sauce) was very good. The meh: My girlfriend's salad with shrimp was disappointing - it was basically lettuce and shrimp, the Spinach & Artichoke Dip app was also disappointing - it tasted like cream cheese and not at all like spinach or artichoke. USB was also lacking in GF options - they had some but not many. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and proactive. While I think we'll be back, it would seal the deal if USB kicked up their GF options.

Had dinner with a couple of friends. Waitress was awesome. Food was good. Typical pub fare. Spent a lot of money for dinner, which is fine. What wasn’t good was after spending over $200 dollars. We paid $18 dollars for parking!!! We even went back in to see if something was wrong with our ticket, mind you there was 3 of us who parked. We were told it would be a $5 dollar charge because we ate at the Union Station Brewery. Total lie. Won’t be going there again.
