    review rating 1  The worse place to visit in Rhode Islad. I visited on 12/13/19 with a few friends, opened a tab of my own and had 2 shots, 3 beers and got charged over $200 dollars on my debit card. Returned a few days later to speak to the owner "Matt" and said it was a tip. He did not refund my money back n created a scene and said that i approved it, when it was all a complete lie. Please be very careful if you end up at Tavern 12 because the owner is a thief just as much as all his employees.

    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 1  I suggested African Americans and Hispanic people do not go to this please, this place is very racist. They stare at you and they intimidate you it's almost like you don't belong there please please try not to go to this and please tell all your friends and followers also not to go to this place. It's 20/20 and I can't believe that there is still places that linger racism.
