Went on a Friday evening, place was packed. Has a small bar and a few tables. Mainly services American fair, but has a couple Korean inspired dishes. Service was great. Prices were fair to pretty cheap for Providence - think $10-15 for an entree. However, the food wasn't very good. It had little flavor. I tried the Korean pulled pork... More

I expected more of my burger. Perhaps it was a bad choice or it was just not matching my taste. The service was excellent. The place is small and it gets full easily (it was a Monday and we couldn't find a table. We sat on the bar). I recommend it, but go early or you won't find a table.

Whether it is a good Patriots, Bruins or Sox night, or you're out with friends - Ivy is a great spot to get a good beer, some fries, and kick back.

This is a local gem. So much so that I hate to give it a great review, because I want to be able to get in the door. Food is excellent from burgers, and sandwiches to Korean specialties. Bar is cozy and the service is always warm and inviting.

The Ivy is a great place to eat some top-notch food. They serve the usual tavern fare, but also include items that I think should be readily available in Rhode Island. New Bedford scallops (when in season and affordable), mussels, oysters. Nice beer selection that rotates regularly.

On the recommendation of a friend I stopped by this local pub to check out it's lunch fare. The bibimbap was as good as I've had in authentic Korean restaurants. With friendly service and local convenience, definitely a place I will recommend to others!

Great place for an informal dinner. It certainly has a neighborhood feel to it but it is for sure welcoming to everyone, even out-of-towners.. Fish and chips is outstanding and so is the bulgogi. Yes - I know a New England tavern with the best Bulgogi in town...

Start off with an order of their unbelievable onion rings. They come with an amazing chipotle mayo dip. I swear you can put this sauce on a sneaker and it will be delicious. Have a cold beer. There are many to choose from. Draft or bottle. Our favorite burger is the Golden Burger. Bacon , cheese BBQ sauce and onion... More

We actually came here for drinks before we went right next door to eat at a more formal place, Pizzico. Drinks were priced reasonable and service was very good. Noticed they had typical pub food in burgers, fries and soups which we will come back for at another time. Atmosphere was very comfortable and customers ranged from people in their... More

This place offers not only the usual tavern fare -- burgers, beer, etc. -- but also Korean food, of all things. Whether you're looking for fish and chips or bibimbap, you'll find it here. I've been pleased with my meal each time I've eaten here.
