I had heard good things about this place and the other reviews also suggested a solid place.
As expected, the food was good, even better than good. There is a limited menu that focuses on burgers and the burgers do not disapoint. The draft selection was limited, as advertised, 4 drafts and one cask. The selections were good for such a small list - Old Speckled Hen, Widmer Black IPA, Breckenridge Boch, Newport Storm 12, and Gritty Black Fly Stout on cask. The service was pleasant and quick.
Then came the bill and the whole thing changed. $7.00 for a Breckenridge 14 0z draft and get this, $9.50 for a 14 oz cask Gritty. I asked if there was an error as the prices were "silly." No such luck. The response was that these were "expensive" beers.
Buyer beware. Of course, they do not list beer prices. Maybe ownership will reconsider this folly.

Located on the edge of Brown University's campus, the the name of the locale quickly spells out their focus: Harry's Bar & Burger. Their food menu is composed mostly of a melange of burger specialties, with a few other bar food options.
This place stuck out for one main reason: they offer beer boots! 58 ounces of very good beer. After drinking so much of it, I do not even remember what they poured (it's a couple of months after the fact, too). If you're looking for a challenge, grab yourself a boot at this place. Give yourself more than an hour to finish; you'll need it.
The staff was exceptionally friendly.

Went with a few guys after work to have some sliders, a few beers and to play shuffle board. The sliders were great and the sweet potato fries were excellent. They have 4 beers on tap and 1 cask. The bartender wasn't sure what was on cask and thought it had been on for quite a while. They had Mayflower Thanksgiving, Heavy Seas Winter Storm, Old Speckled Hen and one more that slips my mind. I stuck with the Thanksgiving and the Winter Storm because they were just tapped this week.
They seem to rotate their taps quite frequently evidenced by all the tap handles on display around the bar and the first floor dining room.
We will definitely be back for some end of the work day beers and burgers.

burgers, good beer and not much else but really do you need more?
they have hot dogs as well as chili etc but that's about it except for some kick ass burgers which they serve as 2 sliders.
The beer list is pretty awesome for such a small place 5 on tap which they are quick to let you sample plus another 50+ bottles along with a great friendly staff.
Only bad part is a very small bar which fills up fast but they do have dinning in back as well as up stairs and lets not forget shuffle board down stairs!!!
