    Apparently, both OpenTable and the The Vig are NOT in synch with each other. When we arrived, the Vig was CLOSED!! Oh well, took my business elsewhere and we are NOT coming back.

    There didn't seem to be enough waitstaff or cooks. Once seated, water was brought quickly but a mixed drink took about 15 mins or more to arrive after the waitress came back by and asked "You haven't gotten your Sangria yet?" Food order took even longer. One table nearby got up and left because they got tired of waiting for their food. Their food finally showed up after we had already been there an hour. Close to 45 mins for a pulled pork sandwich to arrive. The other half of our order - a Steak & Cheese sandwich was wrong and delivered as something called a Smashed Double Stack Burger, or something like that. By this point, at around an hour, we did not have time for it to be sent back and corrected. The food was actually good. Took about 10 mins for the waitress to return with my card after she took it. Due to amount of time everything took, would likely not go back unless just going for a drink at the bar.

    Didn’t really have a host or hostess. The person who seated us didn’t know how to access my reservation. Took a while for someone to come give us menus and take our drink order. In general the staff seemed very unorganized. Food was average.

    Unfortunately, we weren’t able to even sit for our reservation bc The Vig didn’t even look into our reservation. We made reservations for 6:15, bc we were heading to the PC game. We knew they were going to be packed, but they seemed short staffed and no actual host at the stand to checkin. We waited about 7-10 min. before getting up to the stand. There was a couple two ppl in front of us who didn’t have reservations and were sat right away. After putting in our name, we were told about 10 min., but the ppl behind us were told 45 min. We waited about 25 min., and ended up leaving bc we would have never made the game. In the future, they need to be organized and hold the reservations ppl have made in advance. We weren’t the only one who walked out before being sat.

    I never complain about en experience. But tonight was absolutely embarrassing for this place. After being seated for one hour my family was served one round of beverages and got our overcooked appetizer. Our food Never came out after waiting over an hour. This was nobody’s fault except ownership and management. We left before our meal came out. The poor waitress was alone with 15 plus tables. Two tables got food in the hour we were there. When I approached the waitress for my check she informed me that the manager had left for the night. What? How is that even possible? I felt so bad for the staff. I was skeptical going here after reviews ….never again will I step foot in this place. My family went next door to eat at the amp. I hope this place shuts down soon! STAY AWAY.

    It was one of worst experiences ever, not only for me but everyone in attendance. Or food took about 90 minutes to be served, I believe we were the 2nd table to be served. We came early so we didn’t have to rush to the game. By the time we got our food we had to gobble it down in five minutes or be late for the game, I had indigestion all night. Ever table after us were told they couldn’t be served, but still had to pay for there drinks. The waitress was a saint offering to pay for everyone. I felt so bad that I gave her an extra large tip thinking it she will probably lose money because of ridiculously terrible management and poor planning. It’s almost as bad as the parking in their lot they don’t have a clue there either. Emily , thank you so much for providing us with the best service you could, I hope you find a better place to work because they do not deserve you, good luck. Unfortunately I will never set foot in the Vig again.

    very understaffed place, especially on Game Day. Took over an hour to get our food (Salad, soup and Quesedilla). Outside of a perfect location for pre-game meal at the AMP, there is no reason to go here until they get more staff. Our waitress, Emily was excellent. She was overwhelmed for sure but definitely tried her best. Blame management for the poor service.

    Great spot if you’re looking just for bar atmosphere -  in regard to food/restaurant service was poor and food was not good at all - would not recommend unless you’re looking for a pregame/event (the AMP) place to have a drink with friends

    Service was great! I am in the restaurant business myself, and I thought the FOH teamwork was excellent. The food and it's pricing was great! The only reason I am giving The Vig a 4/5 is just something small: our steak was not cooked to temp (undercooked) and the meal was not very hot (got very cold very quick!). Overall, it was extremely delicious and I would recommend this place 100% ! Definitely coming back! Thanks for your service!

    Had never been here previously, mostly because I feel the name is an offensive recollection of a part of Federal Hill we’d like to forget However, the location and presumed ambiance was right so.... Four adults, two children going to PC game at Civic Center. Walking an issue. Parking in Hilton garage was free for diners. Short hop to entrance of Dunken Donuts center, Took reservation on Open Table. Billed as retro sports bar. Why not. Reservation not available when we arrived but was able to show my Open Table confirmation and they found us the perfect table with the perfect young waiter, Tyler D. Who took great care of us. Menu not exciting, dinner wise, but as a sports bar, the apps, salads and hand helped were great. Wine list adequate and limited choices by the glass but what they had was good at a fair price. Out of current character, the draft choices of hundreds of mongrel beers were not available but there was something for everyone. We all enjoyed our food, wine and beer and the incredible play list from 60s to 80s. I guess that’s where “ retro “came in. Great place for a beer and bite before or after an event at the Civic Center. Better make a reservation, though. The place is packed at those times. Appeared to be separate, but connected, dining area for the hotels breakfast buffet. Rest rooms were traditional M&F in the hotel lobby. This could be my Big East stop for this season.

    The bar and waitstaff are excellent, they offer prompt and courteous service. The Kennebec Potato Chips with onion dip are a great starter. My wife had the salmon and I had the french onion burger and both game out great. The Vig is an outstanding restaurant, and I know that I'll be back many times in the future.

    While the good was okay as we ordered a burger and the flat iron steak. My boyfriend wanted to upgrade his fries to the poutine and was told no but she brought him the potato fries instead and we were up charged for those. Once the food was served we never saw our server again. We had to ask for our check after waiting awhile after our meals were complete. My boyfriend said the burger was good and my steak was cooked perfectly. It was a shame that the service was not up to par. We only visit Rhode Island once a year so unfortunately we will not be returning to The Vig on our next trip. It is in a great location but .....

    Bar service was outstanding. Ate lunch, dinner and breakfast. Burger and appetizer were great at lunch at the Vig. Dinner service and food were not as good as lunch. Pot roast was yummie but potato and vegetables were very hard. Breakfast service was very good, bacon to greasy, eggs over cooked. Was attending an event at Dunkin donut center and location could not have been better

    Our party of 9 dined at The Vig following graduation. Staying as guest at the hotel, this couldn't have been more convenient. The food was good...typical pub-style fare. Looking at the dining areas, they didn't seem incredibly busy, yet there was an extremely long wait to get our food, and one of the meals (burger and fries) arrived cold, as if it had been sitting there for a while. Perhaps the kitchen was understaffed... Our waiter (I think his name was Jeff) was a consummate professional- always perceptively there when we needed something. Jeff and the manager offered outstanding customer service and had the burger and fries re-made. Again, the outstanding service made up for everything and we had a pleasant time enjoying the company of family, friends and our new graduate!
