Track 84 has a decent selection of beers, especially belgians, but it is good relative to the RI area. I live in CT and I'll just drive to the Publik House when I really want something interesting.
Its a dive bar, which isn't a bad thing, just be aware. Food selection is basic sandwiches, made by the same person handling your dirty money...and without gloves..oh well.
prices are decent, but overall, I feel the place is slightly overrated. Its a good bar, but I wouldn't tell folks from out of state to go.
The major gripe I have with this place is the glassware. On 2 occasions, I got glasses that smelled like wet dog, one of which had lipstick on it. However, I give much credit to the owner. After my original post, he requested feedback to better improve their process and service. In that respect, I have modified some ratings. That kind of attention is very rare.

I'd been meaning to stop in for a while now and I finally got my chance before a flight home.
Track 84 is hidden away down a quiet, residential street. I've been by that street hundreds of times but I'd have never known about it if not for BA. The interior is worn and simple but that works for me. They have a long bar, some tables and an open area with a couple of dart boards. The decor includes a good collection of license plates and beer bottles. The crowd is very mixed. When I was there, it was mostly guys drinking Miller & Bud.
They had about 16-20 on tap and at least 25-30 more in bottles. The tap selection was very good with some excellent Belgians. I had a Delerium Tremens, Southern Tier IPA and Blanche de Brussels. They were good but I thought the Tremens was served with much more foam (and much less beer) than it should have. The only other concern I had was that they didn't have a beer list (on paper or on the wall) where I could really review the tap selection before making my choice. I was instead instructed to take a walk down the bar to see the taps. The service was otherwise OK. I think the guy that runs the place was there but he had another guy pouring the beer while I was in.
This place seems to be on the right "track" though and I will definitely try it again. Having grown up in RI, I know there's not a big supply of well crafted beer. This is a very welcome addition.

This is a small home town bar that is on a dead end street...and given the name, guess what it's near? Train tracks! The have a pool table, some arcade games, and a tv...
The bartenders are alright...sometimes it seemed as though we were disturbing her, but she was always willing to let you taste and figure out what you want with no rush.
The night that I went there was Stone Smoked Porter, Brooklyn Chocolate Stout, and Titan Great Divide, and many others. It wasn't until the end of the night that I realized the fridge with 22 bombers of more beer goodness! Some other time, I will have to tap in to that....
The food is relatively non-existant. You can get samwiches (though that seemed like a chore) and chips. That's it... meh - offset that with fun beers to try and really, it's more than a wash for me.
Overall, it seems like a dive bar...looks like one on the outside, looks like one on the inside...BUT that's kind of the charm, and it's a dive bar that has some kick ass beer!

I have to say that this place has the selection, glassware and all the makings of a wonderful beer bar. The food I saw posted, but I didn't eat anything. I was there for the wonderful tap beers they had to offer.
I started with Oak Aged Siberian Night Imperial Stout. The surroundings aren't awful, but the price is right on. They have tasting trays you can order and interesting people sitting at the bar who are also interested in beer in a big way made for good conversation and chatter. I then tried the Harpoon Imperial IPA which was wonderful. Again, the glassware each beer was served in was a pleasant surprise. I chatted with a fellow over that and a 90 minute IPA he was sipping. We discussed IPAs and different offerings we had enjoyed. Good little brain swap as we both mentioned beers each other hadn't tried. Next up was the Victory Stom King Stout. I had tried this from a bottle, but never on tap. It was somewhat better on tap in my opinion.
Overall, the atmosphere isn't what it really could be, but the service, glassware, selection, price and interesting patrons made up for it. I'll visit again soon.

Stopped by last Friday after hearing many good things. The outside of the bar, like others have said gives you no idea about the goodies that lie within. Inside there are dart boards and other games, a long bar with a separate parallel set of stools behind it with their own long table. The atmosphere when I went was almost exclusively locals and felt semi-divey. The selection was very very good with several things I have not seen on tap locally before. I have a Nebraska Hop God, but a lot of style were represented. The prices were very reasonable. The Hop God was only $5. Service was both friendly and knowledgable. If I am in the area, my first stop is Julian's but this is a close second. I love the homey/local atmosphere and that alone is worth a stop.

Track 84 is an old neighborhood dive bar. According to the friendly bartender, the longtime owner died and his son, a beer nut, took over and began improving the selection greatly.
This is really now one of the best 4 or 5 beer bars in the state. A truly great selection of beers. When me and a friend stopped in, they had hooker imperial porter, hooker pale ale and 3 three floyds beers ON TAP! Their bottle selection is just killer. Mostly focuses on american microbrews... all kinds of stuff from middle ages, southern tier, long trail, southampton, 3 floyds, dogfish head, victory, etc. Probably about 6 beers on tap and another 30 or so microbrews in bottle.
The vibe whe we went was mediocre, but the patriots were playing, so maybe people weren't up for going out that night. There is a pool table and a few TVs. Bartender wasn't SUPER educated about beer, but she was able to help us a little bit and very friendly.
Defnitely worth stopping in and checking this place out!

Took a drive on a Saturday night to check it out. Very quiet for a Saturday at 9 PM...only about 5-6 people. There was a drunk guy next to me at the bar talking about being drunk and such. Six beers on tap from Three Floyds, Middle Ages, Thomas Hooker, etc. Impressive bottle menu up on the wall...the bartender said the owner was still perfecting it - Black Sun Stout, Oak Aged Yeti, Fresh Hop...good stuff. Prices are damn decent too...under $2 for a 10oz. pour of most draughts. $3 for pints of Alpha King...oh yes.
This place will improve with time. More draught lines are in the future of this bar and a better atmosphere would make it a better but still...$3 for a pint of Alpha King?

This bar is located on a residential side street right near the airport. It is about a 10-15 minute drive from downtown Providence. When I was there, on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, the bar was populated by an after-work crowd. The ages of the people varied as did what they were drinking, but it was definitely the kind of local bar where people knew each other. I was also drastically younger than the vast majority of the patrons. For these reasons, I couldn't help feeling slightly out of place.
There was a large selection of bottled beers posted on a chalkboard above the bar. There was no tap list, and the only way to deduce what was on tap was to ask the bartender or look at the taps themselves. I settled on a pint of midas tough, although there were many very good beers represented, including from the breweries Smuttynose, Southern Tier, and Victory. I stayed for one beer, because I was going to an event at the arena in downtown Providence.
My assessment of this bar is that the beer is on par with other great New England beer bars, but I enjoy the overall experience at others much more.

I was suprised to see so few when I was there, especially on a Sat. According to the barender the place is busy on random days. I tend to prefer quieter places. You always have a place to sit. The atmoshere wasn't bad at all. There was a pool table which is always good. On tap there were six brews, The unfortunate bud and bud lite...alpha king -3 floyds, THooker IPA, middle ages Wailing wench, and flying dog ipa. Alpha king on tap is excellent. Nice microbrew bottle selection as well. They were out of Three floyds Black sun when we asked so we had a very good oak aged yeti instead. Very reasonable also. Nice place and it sounds like the owner is trying to introduce more good beers and expand the tap selection.
There definitely needs to be more places that serve quality brews like here..
