Foursquare Tips

  • Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Knowledge and beer. Test yourself on both against Brown's best and brightest at this big tavern's popular trivia night.
  • Great beer selection. Darts and pool tables. Best bar in Providence!
  • It might take a while for you to get it, but the Cajun Chicken and Chips is an awesome snack. Order it now so that you'll have it when you actually get hungry.
  • Worst bar service. Too crowded. Never to return. Awful.
  • Smells like a toilet. But that's ok
  • Solid beer selection at good prices, love the atmosphere here...has true pub feel. I could sit in thus place all night (actually, I have)
  • Don't feed the hipsters.
  • Stone Levitation Ale on draft is amazing!
  • Mmm cheese plate! Afternoons with a great beer and cheese on the patio is what I love about this place.
  • Ask for the owner, Maurice, and tell him that Paige and Kevin said "Hello!"
  • Two dart boards
  • Rated by esquire as the least enjoyable bar in the Americas. Take the 10 day challenge
  • Don't believe the hype, not a fun bar. Where people go who don't know about the GCB
  • Good bar if you like good beer and decent people. Only bar in Providence where you can always find parking.
  • Good atmosphere. Drinks aren't too expensive. I'll be back.
  • Great beer selection. Hummus and vegan chili are excellent. Ample parking.
  • Good, not GREAT beer selection but what's the point? You have to fight to get one, and forget it if you're not wearing a sweater best. Places blows unless it's quiet.
  • 5/18/12 Stone Self Righteous Cask. So good.
  • Try the bottle of SOS
  • One of the best Jack n Cokes around. I know that sounds funny, but a lot of places add a bit too much coke for my liking!
