Great seafood at reasonable prices. One of my favorite places to eat. Ocean breezes and casual dining. Great place to meet up with family and friends.

It's nice her as it is a small beach area. If you're a local, you get a entrance fee discount. It gets very crowded in the middle of summer, but it's worth it. They have a few places to eat around the beach area too.

This was a beautiful and tranquil place to relax. The restaurants in the area - and right on the beach! - are fabulous!

Sit by the water and enjoy the water view while enjoying Iggy's clam cakes, chowda & doughboys. Good times!

Anne and I visited Oakland Beach by random selection, and are very happy we did. The 5 feet of snow of this winter had stopped falling, and a thaw had begun, but it was still below freezing on the day we visited. Even so, we are very glad we went, and are pretty excited for warmer weather when we can... More

Two RI favorites are clam cakes and Manhattan style chowder. Iggy’s Manhattan clam chowder was excellent but a "little salty" while the clam cakes were also excellent, though greasy. To be fair, clam cakes are always greasy since they are deep fried. Please note that Clam cakes taste great right out of the deep fryer, but "kind of suck" when... More

A lovely place to seat and relax and enjoy the ocean and the view in all seasons. If your hungry, there are a few good eating establishments or bring a lunch and sit on the lawn. Maybe enjoy one of the summer concerts.

View is simple yet peaceful and still. Quiet relaxing view of the bay. The rest is shanty, unkept houses with junk in yards. No attraction to go there outside of Iggy's. Food as good as Narragansett's. We far surpass view,attractions and cleanliness. We should be open all year too.

First of all I cannot stand the Oakland Beach area. It used to be summer shacks that people made permanent housing. The beach is nothing special it is small and dirty. Every time it rains the beach is closed because of high bacteria. You have to be careful to check the department of health reports I consider the area a... More
