    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 4  Best Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings I've ever had !! Chicken soup recipe changed somewhat & is a little too peppery tasting for me . Everything else we've ever had was delicious ! Staff is super friendly ! Can't wait for them to reopen ! Miss you all !

    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!

    review rating 5  A great stop after leaving the airport. We had the nachos and a few drinks while winding down after a long flight with love entertainment playing the best of the 80s music.

    review rating 5  I’ve been contracted through many bars and clubs throughout the Warwick / Providence area and can confidently say this is one of the best i’ve stepped foot in. Staff is excellent, food is great, vibes are always right, and Matt is the most hands on owner i have ever worked with. Highly recommend.

  • 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.

  • 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...
