If you find yourself in the Fox Point neighborhood and are looking for a casual, fun, unpretentious place, The Point Tavern is just the spot. It is the quintessential neighborhood bar on Wickenden Street and it's actually located inside a residential house. The beer and wine list is small, but carefully curated and always filled with ever-changing selections. The kitchen also has a limited menu, but the pizza, sliders and quesadillas hit the spot with the right beer or wine.
The neighborhood of Federal Hill has plenty of good places to sidle up to the bar without breaking the bank. The E&O happens to be just one bar, where arcade games are still a quarter and local 'Gansett' is always served cold. For entertainment, E&O has a couple of pinball machines, a few TVs, some fun theme nights and always an eclectic mix of music. It is a small place, so get there early if you want a spot at the bar, otherwise you'll be shoulder-to-shoulder by the end of the night.
The Scurvy Dog is proud to serve strong drinks, loud music and eclectic eats in a relatively trend-free atmosphere. The Dog is located in historic Olneyville just west of downtown and though most are here for the potent beer and cocktails, the kitchen shouldn't be forgotten because it serves hot dogs and burgers with bizarre, tasty toppings. For instance, the 'Wiggety Waaah' comes with Nutella, bacon and Swiss cheese and the 'Red Light District' is made with raspberry jam and Swiss. When the weather allows, the back patio is a nice place to chill and take one of these fun-to-eat treats.
As far as the selection of craft beer goes, The Abbey manages to outdo every pub in town with its list of 92 different varieties. In addition to a massive selection of suds, the Abbey also has an amazing array of burgers, pizza and sandwiches alongside different entrees like meatloaf and pasta. Right below each menu item, there is a beer recommendation to pair your plate. A nice touch, just in case you are perplexed as what to choose when you see the beer list!
