Our goal is to offer the perfect neighborhood tavern...

Owner Matthew Desarli has been working to create the perfect neighborhood tavern since acquiring Tavern 12 in November of 2013. Matthew brings years of culinary experience as a former culinary arts major, and personal chef to celebrities such as Robert Downey Jr. He has crafted his comfort food inspired menu from the belief that everything should be served with fresh ingredients at reasonable prices.
In addition to amazing food Tavern 12 offers an impressive beer and spirits selection, 28 tv’s with surround sound, weekly karaoke, game nights, and other events. Upon walking in you’ll be greeted by friendly servers and the perfect atmosphere to unwind after a long day, enjoy a meal, and catch the game.

Great food and a perfect atmosphere!

We are your friendly neighborhood tavern with amazing beers on draft and a fresh and delicious menu.

  • review rating 5  Great sports bar atmosphere and very friendly staff! Wish signature cocktails were advertised their size but they were made very well. Just came for drinks as we're from out of town and already ate elsewhere but glad we found this place! Would definitely come back!

    review rating 1  The waitresses were really good and did a great job unfortunately for them the kitchen is clueless when it comes to any kind of culinary skills. The food is aweful. I would not eat there again if you paid me. And to make matters worse it was kereok night. People get a life...and hey here's an idea. Turn the volume down!! OMG!! For that reason I'm out...

    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 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.
