We used the "Jake" room for a small function @50 people and it was great. The food was excellent, make sure you get a tray of their pulled pork. The layout is good for a party of this size (they can handle 70 easily). Great management & crew.

My daughter has been going there for a while to cheer on her favorite team, so we chose it as the spot to throw her a surprise Birthday Party. The staff was great and allowed us to use a private area without an extra charge. We did order lots of food and drinks, but not being charged for the space... More

After a Providence College swimming and diving meet, we decided to come here for post meet drinks and apps. The location had ample parking during our visit and the interior was decorated well. The drinks came out very quick, followed by the quesadillas and nachos. Unfortunately, both did not have much flavor. We had to ask for some extra sauces... More

We visited the Ladder 133 after moving my boyfriend's sister in to Providence College. The waitress took our drink order and after a 10 minute wait brought our drinks. It was not busy in the restaurant with only 1 other table and a few people at the bar so the wait for drinks was a bad start to the meal.... More

Mary, After reading your review I am outraged that you recieved the kind of service you did. No one should have that kind of experience at our establishment. We take great pride in our customer service and quality of food . I do not have an excuse or explanation of why the waitress would give you the kind of service... More

We stopped in at Ladder 133 after reading some of the reviews on here. We weren't disappointed. The atmosphere is very cool with lots of famous sports posters, antique firehouse equipment, and TV's around the restaurant. You name the sport - they could probably find it for you on a TV within eye sight of your table. Our server couldn't... More

Stopped in before the PC hockey game and were so surprised at what a great place this is! The whole place was packed and yet it was comfortable and fun and the staff was excellent! We sat at the bar and ordered dinner. It was quick and the food was excellent. We always wanted to stop there on our way... More

We finally visited Ladder 133, and are we glad we did. The food was terrific and the prices can't be beat. We opted for two glasses of the house wine, very good and VERY generous for a modest price (OK, the red was from Slovakia, but it was quite nice). Food was great. Try the half pound build-your-own burger. naked... More
