Came here for lunch with a friend on a Monday. Had a hamburger and fries that were really good. It wasn't too crowded and our server was nice. Good pub atmosphere.

We were walking around downtown Providence, loving the sights but getting hot and hungry and stopped in at the Congress Tavern. Great ambience, cool, huge draft beer choices and a great menu. The sandwiches are excellent and the chips homemade and delicious. Great stop!
