Went to Aidan's to grab a bit and watch some of the March Madness and was able to watch both the hockey and basketball games upstairs. Great atmosphere, certainly busy, but enjoyed being able to eat, drink and watch the games all at once...Service was great despite the crowds.

An institution in Bristol near the harbor. Pub atmosphere with great ambiance and an interior filled with wood and brass. Aidan's serves seafood, Irish pub fare, burgers, and sandwiches. The food is always excellent. However, what I enjoy the most at Aiden's is the stuffies. Don't know what a stuffy, or stuffed quohog is? I suggest you find out because... More

A local town spot. If you dont know anyone forget about the Welcome mat. Food is disgusting. We all had different food...We all got sick. If you just want a beer than you are in luck. Looks like a good place... Looks are deceiving.

This is a down to earth local place. It is popular with local Roger Williams University students. It can be loud. Sometimes there is live Irish music. Good variety of beer. Good burger. Affordable. You can see the water from the patio where there is a wood stove.

It was what I expected, good selection of draft beers and good Irish pub food. Well worth the visit. Service was very good, especiallyon a busy Saturday night.
