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!

We love Union Station, but we usually go for the bar food - burgers, tenders, beer. This time we decided to try out their Providence restaurant week menu, and wowza it was incredible! We got full pours of beer with our courses, and they were perfectly paired with the burrata salad, fish sliders, and cherry chocolate cake. We also had the fried mozzarella appetizer, and it was so fresh! I mean the beer alone was worth coming here for, but whoever their chef is now better never leave. They are a gem! So delicious and an excellent value.

It's been many years since my last visit to Union Station. I gave it another shot after a bad experience. I am glad I did. The beer, service and food were all very good.

Made reservations for 3pm. Info on website re parking was ambiguous. Parked in lot anyway, took a chance.
Arrived at USB to see signs re masks or show vaccine cards. NO ONE at host area to check either.
USB was not very busy as we expected on NYEve/Covid.
Sat at bar, chatted with some nice out-of-towners.
First 2 bartenders not impressive re customer service, third one was more attentive.
2 home-brewed beers @$10 per, 2 9-oz Meomi wine @ $17 per glass, mac n' cheese/chicken and a burger.
Total $106
Happy to give USB some business during Covid times.
Feeling taken advantage of re price of beer and wine.
Visited USB many times but not motivated to return.

I have been to union station many times and loved it. Well I didn’t love it this time. We got there at 6pm and didn’t receive our food until 715. They service was horrible . The waitress was not even sorry about the service . She said all I do is take the order I don’t make it. Also a man who appeared to be the manger delivered the food . No apologies and then argued with my husband about the time we waited . I know restaurants are short handed but when there’s a problem you need to take care of it

Food was not very good, they forgot to bring FOUR meals for our party of 12 (brought them when we were done with our meals, then took TWO off the bill as a gesture), and didn’t seat the party how they had promised over the phone…but the music they played was perfect so at least the experience wasn’t awful.

Food was great! They've added a few new entrees which was nice. Think they need to offer a few more, healthier sandwich options, ie eliminate one of the fried chicken sandwiches and add a grilled chicken option. Beers are delicious! Definitley need to refurbish the tabletops-very sticky and reupholster the booths- cushions are ripped. Service was good.

Short of help, short on service. 25 minutes before saw first service. 1.25 hours to get food. 10 minutes to eat before leaving for PPAC. All other restaurants in area permanently closed. Very disappointed.

Disappointed in the food. A bit embarrassing since this is where we decide to eat after picking up our friends from the airport. Wasn't a good way to start the visit.

Simply amazing. The food was perfectly cooked (mushroom onion burger) the fries were hot and fresh, the macaroni and cheese was creamy and delicious. And it came out a lot faster than I thought for such a busy place.
Now the best part, the beer. The cinnamon wage was by far the best pumpkin beer I've ever had. Period. Sorry Shipyard. Sorry Sam Adams. Youve been dethroned. The Kennedy Pilsner was perfectly flavorful and smooth and cranston thug life was a delicious IPA you could drink every day. No too heavy, not too light. Just right.
Our server (Annie?) was pleasant, professional and very personable. It was fun talking beer with her. I actually felt like she wanted us to enjoy ourselves. That's a feeling I have not had from a place in a long time. The restaurant itself is well decorated. Its an older building but with an industrial modern touch. And clean! Everything was clean! Even the bathroom was clean! I was not expecting that from a brewery. If I could give them 6 stars I would. It was simply amazing!

Fun place. Service was great when they came by. We did need to seek them out either at the bar or walking several times. Did seem like they were attentive to other tables. Food okay, drinks great and lots of TVs for the games.
