This is one of our go to places on a Friday night for a casual, but always good meal. The menu is diverse, good salad, sandwich, burger and entree choices. Service is prompt and pleasant.

Not sure what happened to this place-it used to be good. Empty tables and long wait to get seated which did not make sense. Ordered a tower beer with friends and the waitress dropped off the glasses which were dirty and still wet. So we...More

We usually go here before or after a game at Brown University. The service is always quick and polite. Food is very good quality and the prices just right. I would highly recommend this restaurant for casual American Food.

Husband and I went in there for some drinks. Great atmosphere and really had a nice time. Drinks were a bit expensive but there weren't any specials or anything going on at the time. Would def come back!

Small resturant just off Theyer St in Providence RI. Nice to eat outside and people watch. Small menu but everything we had was good with good prices. Staff friendly and efficient. Better for adults. Big college area.

The location now home to Paragon and Viva was the site of the original Spats Restaurant & Pub. This historic eastside restaurant and traditional pub was home to students, families and friends. Andy and Solan Mitrellis created a relaxed and friendly ambience of good food, drink and a "great night out". It was not uncommon to see the Providence singers or the Cabot Street Theater actors unwinding after an evening of rehearsals. Before Providence‘s renaissance the word was, “I'll meet you at Spats". It was a small town back then and for many the "old" Spats brings back good memories of a time sense past.
