For what you will pay for a meal here - which will be nothing special - you are better off going to the Boathouse or Trafford's. Both are cleaner and the food is substantially better. Ambiance here is near zero. Bathrooms are dirty. Restaurant is dirty. Food is ok but average. We left $200 here and it was not worth... More

Growing up in Bristol, I remember when this restaurant by the bay first opened. We started with appetizers - clams casino and a stuffed quahog. I found the stuffie small and spicy. I didn't love it and would not order it again. The clams casino were topped with long strips of bacon that were not as crispy as they could... More

I've only done take-out at Quitos, but we've enjoyed the quality of food each time. Unfortunately, they messed up our order, which was annoying and not cheap, but I still recommend the food. You can't go wrong with the fried scallops, shrimp, calamari, or lobster roll. Their coleslaw is also delicious! Enjoy a meal at the beautiful Colt State Park.... More

I love Quito's but tonight was very disappointing. It was busy but not crazy busy so we got a table for two pretty quickly. Staff members were friendly. I ordered the Pan Seared Cod which can be delicious. My wife ordered chicken salad. Both arrived cold; some parts of my fish were warm and one end cold. This is always... More

We live in the East Bay of RI. My husband and I just started going here this summer. The seafood is amazing. Friend scallops are delicious and plentiful. I have had the crab cakes milanese salad. Delicious. The portions are very generous. Yes it is a bit pricey, but the quality of the food is worth it. Be prepared to... More

Had to wait just a few minutes at 1:30 on a beautiful Saturday, but they gave us the best seat on the outside deck - had some of the best coconut shrimp I have had on the Mainland (best ever was in a little bar dive on St. Maarteen. The view was absolutely beautiful as is the whole town. Wife... More

Calamari $12. Way too much batter on the calamari. Could be the worst we ever had. Came with sauce and peppers. Rest of meal was good. Nothing spectacular. Very busy overlooking the bay.

Our go to place for a great seafood lunch. The chowders delicious and brimming with clams and the seafood chowder is simply the best anywhere. Pasta dishes with seafood are absolutely tops. The fish sandwich here is done perfectly and the portion is more than generous. Never been disappointed. Servers are capable and friendly. Michael

Both of us had their pan seared scallops. plenty of them with their cole slaw and potatoes. Out of this world. Can't wait to drive back down from Boston for real seafood.
