  • review rating 5  I've had stents implanted and am on a very rigid diet that surpasses vegan. Victoria, our waitresses was very knowledgeable about about their food and took great interest in making certain that their cook staff understood exactly what I could and couldn't have. The chef took the time to come to our table and speak with me just to confirm what I could not have. They could not have been more accommodating. Fantastic people and great food. This was our first time here and we will be back with our friends.

    review rating 2  A definate sports bar not what i am looking for. For a place where almost no one orders food the kitchen takes forever for just a salad and wings

    review rating 2  20 minutes to get a stuffed quahog that was cold in the middle. The place wasnt busy and the service was not good. I planned on eating there and left after my 20 minute quahog.I ordered a Tito's and cranberry. The bartender uncharged me for a tall I did not order. I wont be back.

  • review rating 2  Warwick lacks environments designed for getting together for the big game. Tavern 12 is one of those exceptions, which usually draws a big crowd. The waitresses and bartenders are friendly and quick to stop by and refill a drink and make sure you have what you need. Sometimes the crowd of regulars can have one too many and get a little out of hand making it a bit uncomfortable for those trying to enjoy a game. My low score is mainly because of the food quality. The burgers are the only thing that seem hand crafted. Everything else from the wings to the fries and chicken parm sub seems like they came out of a freezer from Sam's club or BJs. I could be wrong but either way that's what the dishes I've had look and taste like.

    review rating 5  This is a great place for karaoke on Friday nights. Modern karaoke system makes everyone a star! And the adult beverages help to make each singer sound better and better. A nice hometown bar!
