The Square Peg
51 Miller St, Warren, RI 02885, United States
Review №1

A beautiful sunny warm afternoon spent preparing evergreen branches for the Warren Volunteer Gardeners. Hungry and thirsty, stopped with my dog Zoe for an outdoor dining spot. My server Brendan prepared an ice cold Harpoon (in a frosted mug that I requested!) and ordered a bacon cheeseburger for me. He even brought Zoe a dog bowl of cold water. We enjoyed the meal and afternoon sun. Square Peg is a wonderful spot to have a beverage and something to eat( their bang bang shrimp tacos are also on my A list) whether with a friend or by yourself. Visit and see for yourself!

Good bar with both outdoor and indoor seating. Have been there many times and thought the food was always really good. These days everyone seems to close pretty early by about 9 because of covid-19. Worth hanging out and a friendly bar.

This place is in my top 3 restaurants... I've never had anything I didn't fully enjoy... Staff is awesome as well...I highly recommend

Review №4

The food is incredible. Four of us had totally different dishes, all excellent. I had Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos. Prices are very reasonable to boot, draught beer is super fresh....

Review №5

Been here several times for dinner. ALWAYS delicious food. Apple Cider Mules are heaven, and my fiance loves the Old Fashioned's they make.

Review №6

Great little ambiance here (with he exception of one religious photo that seems out of place) the staff is great, the food is great and the margaritas are top notch.

Review №7

The food here was astounding. Our waitress was kinda snarky which is the reason for only four stars.

Review №8

Nice local spot in a home from the 1790s with delicious upgrades to American classics. The fish tacos were fresh and crispy with just the right toppings. The lobster BLT is a must-have if it's on the specials board. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting - good tunes, good location, great food

Review №9

This was a nice environment, I sat outside and had a lobster roll and a drink. Staff were very polite and kept a solid social distance. However I did notice that one person who was waiting on me did not keep their masks over their nose and mouth at the same time. I know it's a pain in the butt, but this is how we show appreciation to each other in these troubling times. Aside from that, my visit was excellent.

Review №10

We love Square Peg and come regularly. We've never had anything we didn't love. From the bang bang shrimp to the specialty salmon burger, everything is AWESOME! The drinks are also great.

Review №11

Delicious food and great service!! I love the bang bang shrimp- my favorite food item!!! I came here recently for a girls night and we had a great dinner with some drinks- our server Lizzy was awesome!

Review №12

This place was so good we went back two nights in a row for appetizers and drinks! The seasonal cocktails are FANTASTIC (do yourself a favor and get the apple cider margarita with the cinnamon sugar rim), and the appetizers are larger portions so they're perfect for sharing.

Review №13

Have been about six times the last few months. Food and service are terrible. Ambiance is great.

Review №14

Awesome place. Great layout and decor. Two small separate bars. Great drinks and food. Fantastic corner location.

Review №15

There is just so much right about this place, from the atmosphere, to the food, to the people who work there, all of it is 5 stars. If you go plan to wait a little bit to get seated (didn't I just say it was good) and have a drink at the bar while you wait. My favorite thing NOT on the menu is to take the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer and put it on a salad. (you're welcome). Favorite thing on the menu is a toss up between the burger and the Bang Bang shrimp Tacos. Go already.

Review №16

In the new Covid World, most restaurant's service has declined significantly. My favorite restaurants of old with the best service have struggled to keep to the level of service I've loved about them.The Square Peg had exceptional service from the time I walked through the door, all the way through my visit. My bartender, Senai, was attentive and seemed to know every time I had a thought of ordering another dish or drink. 11/10 for service.I tried their House Lager: delicious. The Bang Bang shrimp had amazing flavor and texture. The Ahi Tuna Tacos had a rainbow of flavor.I highly recommend giving this venue a try. If you do, I'm sure you'll make the decision to become a regular here, just as I did, just now.

Delicious food. Great service

Laura was awesome today! Thank you for everything!

Review №19

I really wanted to like this place, I really did. It has a concise menu, great location, good ambience. The owners probably put a lot of effort into this place. But man... both the food and the service were miserable.Starting with the service, I came on a Friday afternoon around 2:00. It was not busy and it was definitely not lunch rush. There was one other small party in addition to mine. The service was so incredibly slow and inattentive that I wanted to just leave. It took forever for our server to introduce herself and afterword she disappeared-- not taking our order until 30+ minutes after we'd been seated. I get it if you are slammed during dinner service or other parties are speaking with you... but we were pretty much the only people here.The food took a really long time to come out. Two guests ordered tacos, another guest and myself ordered burgers (both medium). I ordered the PBR burger, medium. It came out VERY well done. Not a glimmer of pink, 100% grey, dry, need a drink of water mealy overdone well done. Customers who usually order well done would have been like "man, they overcooked this, its really dry".It came with a side of fries. All of them were broken up into tiny pieces, the longest fries being 2-3 cm long. It was a plate entirely of the last remnants of broken frozen fries. Its fine to use a frozen product, but at least take a look at what is going out. Its frustrating having ketchup and not being able to use it because I was served just the bits.I paid $12.75 for a burger and fries and I honest to God wouldn't have served that to anyone. I paid it and didn't want to make a scene, but honestly... Not only that, it took nearly 2 hours to get lunch! It's now a week later and I'm still mad enough to take the time out of my day to write this. Definitely not worth coming back.

Review №20

Awesome as usual. Sidewalk dining on a perfect day. The fish tacos are the best. Waitstaff always friendly.

Review №21

Nice to have the local watering hole open for bar and dining room service ! Nice to see all the staff .. food and martini fabulous as always.

Review №22

Visited for the first time this afternoon..impressed! The food is very good. We had the fisherman's stew and the shrimp tacos with a couple of diet Cokes. It was very good! Surprisingly, our tab was only $27 including tax. The entrees were a good size too!Wish the parking situation was better..sought out their parking lot on Narragansett St and it was full as was the street parking in the area.Also, the service could be better. We waited a while for our food and after we were finally served, the waitress never came back to check on us. The waitress for the next table seemed more attentive to those diners. Maybe it was just an off day for her?Wish the menu was more expansive..Will definitely give them another try!

Review №23

Absolutely disgusted. I don't know how this place is so highly rated. We ordered burgers and a grilled cheese, they did not even ask how we would like our burgers. They came back completely pink and undercooked, it was worse than if you were to go onto the field and bite the cow right then and there. The fries not only looked like they had been sitting under a warmer for a few hours but they were cold and completely greasy and disgusting. The grilled cheese was seriously butter on two slices of bread, not cooked at all. A microwave could cook a grilled cheese better than they did.

Review №24

The menus is small and love it. You can chose something quickly for a great delicious price. Their shrimp taco was amazing and very well cooked and seasoned. I was here visiting family and my neice picked this place to eat, as and I was not disappointed at all.

Review №25

The Square Peg is a reliable place to eat. The food is consistantly good, reasonably priced, with a comfortable rustic atmosphere. The menu is not extensive, but what they serve is fresh and well cooked

Review №26

This place is Amazing. Right on Water street in Warren. The food was delicious and the service was grade A. I would recommend this place to anyone in the Bristol, Warren, Barrington area or visiting the East Bay. Can not wait to go back and try a micheloda.

Review №27

The staff are all quite friendly and even though it was quite busy and we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. We were able to wait in the bar area and have a drink while we waited. All their cocktails are great (we've tried a different one each time we've been here). Definitely one of the best burgers I've ever had. This isn't the huge lump of beef you get at some places. Bigger is not always better. If you are that hungry just order 2 they are worth eating! Rotating menu of high quality beers so you can always find something fun and new to try if you like craft beers. The only thing that can be disappointing is that there is only the one bathroom but that's not really something they can help.

Review №28

I was just expecting some ordinary street taco's and I'm no aficionado but square pegs taco's took me right back to Mexico City.

Review №29

Really great simple American fare! Service was speedy and made sure orders were correct. Cocktails we were original and yummy. We had the Paloma. Will be back for sure.

Review №30

More so a 3.5 I had the chili, and the fired pickles. The chili has no tomatoes in it, so it was just okay. The fried pickles were amazing, and I had some of the bomb shrimp and it was delicious

Review №31

Stopped here on our way to Martha's vineyard. We were pleasently surprised. I enjoyed the fish tacos, my wife loved her burger, and my daughter thought the Mac and cheese was great. The staff is friendly and attentive. Parking can be tricky. The place is small and could fill up quickly. They do have a kid's menu.

Review №32

The best fries. Great tacos.

Review №33

This restaurant is exactly what Warren needs, a cozy gastro pub with a great beer and cocktail list and above average menu of interesting bar food. If only they could figure out timing! Every time I have visited we have waited over an hour for food with apologies that the kitchen is small, it's the lunch rush, other people came in the same time as us, they only have one chef in. Of course problems happen and people should be flexible and patient but if it's a recurring problem, then it's a systemic issue— not triage. then you need to plan better— restaurants will always have a lunch rush and every workplace has people call out— have a backup plan. After yet another way too long wait Of over an hour with just my beer, i actually had to just cancel my order and leave my other guests at the table in order not to be late for an appointment. how embarrassing! Figure it out square peg— this is the business you're in.

Review №34

I was in town from NY visiting a friend who brought me to the Square Peg. I could tell it was a local hot spot as the place was still packed for a lunch crowd at 1:30. We waited a minute for a table but were sat quickly. The staff was extremely friendly! I ordered the PBR Burger and the food came out quickly relevant to how packed it was, The flavors of the burger were incredible! Hands down one of the best burgers in town. I have a standing invite to Warren and i intend to be back!!!

Review №35

Didn't expect it to that crowed at 2pm...but I would have sat at the bar watching the bartender mix always the Street Taco's were fantastic...spicy but not overly so...the selection of beers on tap was a nice mix of local IPAs and Guinness. Service is fast...friendly and knowledgeable...two years running...still my favorite local restaurant/bar!

Review №36

On a busy Saturday night, we were surprisingly seated within 20 minutes. Great cocktails while waiting. Hands down the best mozzarella sticks you will ever have in your life.

Review №37

Awesome place. A real neighborhood establishment. The food and service are great. There's a real sense that it's the center of a community. It can get busy but there's usually room to squeeze in somewhere. Try the fish tacos.

Review №38

Love the quaint atmosphere. Food is so DELICIOUS,as well as the presentation. A comfortable relaxing place. Desserts are all homemade and out of this world. ALWAYS satisfied when I frequent this establishment. One of the best places that my daughter and son-in-law introduced me to.

Review №39

Great food at family prices. New lounging area is a nice addition

Review №40

Great spot. Very friendly service and food was awesome. Not from the area but will definitely try to get back.

Review №41

The food, the atmosphere, the service...all fantastic. Will be returning.

Review №42

Just few improvements. Need to turn up the heat. People @ the bar extremely loud. Not the best place to relax. Entrance is very deceiving. Went to three doors before finding the right one. Need major improvement to restrooms. Not handicapped accessible @ all. Not sure how managed to around this but bldg codes are not up to today's standard. Food ok. Waitress came back several times but never p/u dirty dishes till arriving w/check. For my taste just o.k.Ement

Review №43

The fish stew with a cabernet sauvignon pairing was perfect on a chilly evening!

Review №44

Love this place! Although it's tiny, the food is amazing and the drinks are delish. Come down when it's warm and the ceiling to floor windows will be open that creates an outdoor vibe. Always a great place to stop in!

Review №45

Amazing staff and food.

Review №46

The fish tacos and lobster roll were first rate. Nice crisp lightly salted fries that are perfect with the on tap beers.

Review №47

Bang bang shrimp and fish tacos are awesome!

Review №48

Awesome foods. Comfy, fun place. Always someone to chat with if you want. Friendly, great bartenders.

Review №49

The waitress was super friendly. Food was delicious. What more could you ask for?

Review №50

Awesome lobster roll and fish sandwich. Burgers are good, too! Great servers and the atmosphere is very welcoming.

Review №51

Excellent Fish Taco with a side Caesar salad. Tap ale was also superb. Service capable and kind. You get what you pay for and the cost is reasonable. What more can one expect?

Review №52

Delicious burgers and fries. Cool atmosphere.

Review №53

Our favorite restaurant. Sets the standard for excellent staff and service, good, consistent food, and just a fun place to be. Good variety of craft beers which are routinely changed up. Our favorites are the steak sandwich, Rueben, PBR and French onion burgers, and the famous fish tacos.

Review №54

Cozy neighborhood spot. The burgers, fish tacos, and the Riverside Reuben are terrific. Good service, but be prepared to wait for a table: it is a busy spot

Review №55

Everything's is fresh and delicious here. Had the P.B.R burger. was awesome

Review №56

Food is good. Service can be slow or kitchen might be too small, either way it can take a while to get your order. Tried to go on a Sunday and it was closed? We've been by other times and left because the wait was too long. I think they have outgrown their space and should be open on Sundays.*update* it's been better /easier to get a seat with their new expansion. Don't use the bathroom in the new section. The lock is strange and people can open the door slightly while you are doing your business.

Review №57

Nice service and atmosphere. I enjoyed good choices for a beer sampler and burger.

Review №58

Pleasant surprise! I had an old bad impression of the food from its previous owner. Now (March 2019 )whoever is cooking knows what they're doing. Juiiiiiiicy French Onion burger with hearty side salad option and a delectable almond berry crumb cake really hit the spot. The menu is simple but very well executed at fair prices. Their hours are more convenient to nearby places so I was able to REDISCOVER the new cooking. Beer choices very interesting beyond the usual. One white wine is on tap. Peeking views of Barrington-Palmer Rivers through floor-to-ceiling windows circa cozy 1790s building adds an earthy colonial feeling. Guaranteed return to try the other comfort food choices. Now I know where to take any visiting family-friends.

Review №59

Fantastic burgets and margaritas!

Review №60

Had a appointment in the area then took my grandson to colt state park..not familiar with the area so googled restaurants for lunch..found The Square Peg.. so glad we was awesome!

Review №61

Great place!! The burgers are awesome.

Review №62

Incredible atmosphere, perfect drinks, and the bang bang tacos are one of the best dishes for sure

Review №63

The PBR burger my son loves.. I on the other hand have try alot of different dishes here. My latest, The Bang Bang Shrimp.. The restaurant and crew are great.. 5 star

Review №64

Awesome food. Must try the mozzarella sticks, best I've ever had, fresh knot out of a freezer

Review №65

It is a fun place for lunch. With a modest menu and reasonable prices.

Review №66

Scott's the man. Great guy. Food and drinks always amazing. A+++

Review №67

What a find!!! This place is a true gem! My wife and I have gone here numerous times ...and this place never disappoints. Starting with the atmosphere... To the food and drinks... I recommend the Chili...The chicken quesadilla... also... The french onion burger... Yummm! Finally an ice cold Captains Daughter Double IPA draft to wash it all down.

Review №68

Tasty sandwiches. Bartender makes amazing drinks. 10 of 10 would recommend.

Review №69

Lobster roll, chicken quesadilla were excellent! Sangria was refreshing!

Review №70


Review №71

This place was so cute & homey, we came for lunch on a Saturday and enjoyed the lobster roll, quesadilla, and some salads. The staff are so friendly and we really enjoyed it's New England vibes. We also got to try this pumpkin spiked milkshake dessert drink which was SO good!

Review №72

The bang bang tacos are awesome. Great atmosphere. Nice old town feel. Tough parking and can get really busy on the weekends.

Review №73

What a charming location. The old market area on water street in Warren. If you sit out on the front walk, you can see down to the boats and the water. The interior of the big old building from the 1800's has the feel of an old post tavern. Wooden floors and chairs tables, built in wooden window seat benches under the large windows in front and around the corner - you can see the water! from there too. High wainscoat and old Warren pics and maps on the walls. A bar along the back for eating chatting reading the newspapers. There is also a funky standup bar on the side of the building. Big glass paned doors open and the young crowd spills in front the sidewalk , sort of like a tailgate party pub.They have an amazing Reuben sandwich made with fish! Sumptuous salads with choices of meat or sea toppings. Narrow fries soft in the middle , crisp crunchy on the sides and ends.

Review №74

Great pub food with a rotating selection of interesting beers on tap. The fried pickles, street tacos, and PBR burger are personal favorites. There are even a couple outdoor tables for warm days.

Review №75

Nice and crowded..looks like local crowds favorite.Liked the outdoor sitting..though not much tables but perfect for a entertaining evening.Vegetarian Jalapeno burger was fantastic.

Review №76

This place is a hidden gem. If your not from the area i highly suggest you drive to water street in warren great apps amazing burgers and sandwiches. The street tacos i highly recommend.

Review №77


Review №78

Yes, yes, yes.... Hands down my fav-spot for great light fare... delicious and nicely served...lunch or dinner...its a treat and you'll dig the dessert offerings as well... Amy and Joel are a team of teams and this is well worth the stop... tell them Angelo sent well, drink up and enjoy all the aspects of a great business in action....

Review №79

Great food and service!

Review №80

Had a very tasty lunch there today.Nice people, nice place.

Review №81

Good food, cool location, attentive staff. Could have a better selection of local craft beers but still, a decent selection. Busy (popular) but I suppose that's a good thing.

Review №82

Some good food the chili seemed to have burned in the steam table probably would have been good if it wasn't burned and dried out a bit, drinks were great.

Review №83

This place has grown leaps and bound in the last few years. The addition of the indoor / outdoor bar on Water Street is great! It's small inside but comfortable, although it was a little warm when we went on a hot night. They're running $5 frozen drink specials in the summer and the night we were there it was a mudslide. It was smaller than I expected but packed a punch and was delicious. The street tacos with chicken were amazing as well as the fish reuben and fish tacos. The homemade tortilla chips were hot and great but the salsa was way too hot for me. Service is great.

Review №84

Very nice restaurant, perfect for a date! I had the california burger, a special of the day, that was really good. Also had a mixed drink which I forget but remembering loving. Service was incredible and it was really nice having the large open windows to get a breeze blowing through the inside. Only reason I rate 4/5 was because they advertise as having some seafood bites, which was why I went, but they only had a swordfish steak and fish tacos. Recommend this place for sure (just not if you want several seafood selections)

Review №85

Casual, tasty meal, app, 2 entrees, 2 drinks, tax and tip $50

Review №86

Our usual go-to family spot...stopped in around 4:30 to celebrate the end of school and ended up waiting almost an hour for food after ordering. All the other tables and the bar were getting their food at a good pace while we sat waiting. We were not a large party and the order was very simple, so we were flummoxed while we sat there and everyone around ate and finished- it was not terribly busy at that point of the evening. The waiter plopped down jug of water after 30 min without speaking, then sent over a beer refill later that we hadn't ordered...but he then came over and was super insistent that we had ordered it (it was very awkward having to state several times we hadn't ordered it)...we received no apologies or explanation on what had happened. I have to chalk it up to just being a very off-moment or night, but I think we will rethink our next family dinner out and will cross the street instead

Review №87

This place is great! Great service, great food and very cozy. Sat at the bar and had the fish tacos. Excellent!

Review №88

Best lobster rolls!

Review №89

Great food, great staff!

Review №90

Small but busy place in Warren. Not a big menu but the food is good.

Review №91

Visiting from SC and the food and service were fantastic!!

Review №92

Pleasant place and view of river, albeit limited. Nice people, prompt service. Good burgers, but somewhat greasy and not cooked to our request. I did enjoy the jalapeño burger. My wife did not care for the Sangria.

Review №93

Always perfection. Great food....very creative. Excellent wines and beers. Charming Ambience. Staff is top notch. Not to be missed when in Warren.

Review №94

Food was good, service was slow.

Review №95

Great food! We are from southern California, ordered the street tacos with high hopes, we were not disappointed! The tacos came with home made tortilla chips and salsa which had a unique twist! My husband ordered the French onion burger, he enjoyed. The fries were also yummy, similar to In and Out fries. It was a busy Friday night so the service was slow, but very friendly. We would definitely go back.

Review №96

Nice little bar in Warren, although it's pretty small. I went in the afternoon, and it was quiet, but apparently the place gets very crowded later in the evening. We had drinks, the bar service was kind of slow. Also had some apps-- the shrimp tacos were very good.

Review №97

Great atmosphere and staff... Food is delish and fresh - drinks are awesome. Great little place, kid friendly as well!

Review №98

Great food. Great service. Finally a bowl of chili that was actually a bowl. My wife loved her quesadilla. But yet again a Rhode Island business that does not carry any RI beer

Review №99

Saturday, in winter, at 1pm,and this place was full. Luckily we didn't wait for a table, but they did have to clear one for us. There were only two servers on, so it took a while to get lunch served, but the server was there to take our drink order promptly. When drinks arrived the lunch order was taken. Then we waited over 20 minutes to be served lunch. Small,busy place. These things happen. Lunch was delicious. I had the french onion burger, my dh had street tacos. It really was good. The place has an american pub feel. We'll be back. There's a reason this place was full at 1pm when we got there and still full at 2pm when we left.

Review №100

Very clean, staff was friendly prompt good at their job, but the good was A++. Couldn't ask for any better than that. Definitely worth the stop.
