For the second time this scenario has occurred , we visited to enjoy a Band and have lunch. We sat along the back wall at a table for four. This place is always understaffed so the wait for service is unbearable. Eventually people we knew sat at adjacent tables along the wall along with other people we didn't know. When... More

Sunday afternoon blues couldn't be better. Crab benedict couldn't have been less appealing. It was cold when it arrived, waitress took it and gave me the same plate back. Now it was not only the wrong temperature, the eggs were hard boiled, hollandaise had no flavor. One good part of my crab benedict: Canadian bacon. GO figure.

We were vacationing and were told, by locals, to try this bar/restaurant. We enjoyed our soup and lobster roll. Lynn was friendly and helpful.

The Ganny, as the locals call it is a great place for pub fare. The bartender, Denise definately serves the best Rum Punches! The food is consistently good.

Stopped in for a late lunch on my way to an appointment. The atmosphere was of a place waiting for the sun to go down so it could wake up. We sat at a table at a window and enjoyed looking at all the musically related items. The patrons scattered around were locals well known to the waitress. Easy conversation... More

We go there every time we visit Jamestown. The live Blues is Excellent. The burgers are big. It looks like a biker bar on the outside but it's not. It isn't fancy. But it's a good time place.

Food was of standard quality. Was here for lunch, but seems to be more of a bar/live music place. Meal was slow to arrive, and only one wait person for the dining area; she was understandably irritable. Enjoyed a mixed drink. My young son and I split the nachos appetizer as our meal.

This place is noted for its live music and bar scene. We went for lunch on Saturday and were very disappointed. It was hot outside so we decided to try the Narragansett Cafe which had AC. Not a good choice. There were three people at the bar and two people at a table. We should have known to seek elsewhere.... More

Had a quick burger at the bar for lunch and had to come back for a beer after work. Love the music and the burger (and the beer!)

Stopped by Jamestown for Independence Day for something to do. Hit the cafe just at Noon for a bite. We were the first ones in, but by the time we finished, the place was filling up nicely, and for good reason. The food was solidly good. We began with some very good stuffies (lots of Quahog bits and lots of... More
