Good local seafood joint

This is essentially a seafood stand that grew up into a bayside restaurant. Small and simple, but with great local staples and drinks. Nice view, pleasant spot.

Took over an hour to get our food after we ordered. When our group spoke with the manager she had a 'so what' attitude. My seared scallops were burnt and so was others seafood and meats. Potatoes were lukewarm. A real disappointment after eating there many times when it was very good.

Nice views of the water and good food! Had a Hibiscus Mojito and it was delicious. Also the clam cakes were great. We tried both types of chowder and liked the New England style best, but the Rhode Island style had a lot more clams. Would definitely go back again.

Went for dinner midweek. Nice place on the water, lovely views. Food is good but a bit pricey. My father got the wrong drink, and the wrong dinner. He ate it anyway. But wasn't what he ordered. Drinks were very expensive compared to other places in Bristol.

Really good and tasty chowder. Clam cakes are tasty and not greasy. Deck area is great in warm weather. Interior is small but has a rustic feel that works with their brand. Shellfish market as well.

Excellent view, waterfront. Food is the best. Love the fried clams. Small atmosphere, so get there early.

We try to go to Quito's a few times a year, and this visit was as good as every. Sitting on the patio in 80 degree weather, eating fresh seafood for dinner gets no better than this. The service and food are great and the prices are in line with most other seafood restaurants. The local can't be beat, give... More

The last time I visited, I had a lobster roll and some lobster bisque. Sooo delicious!! We sat outdoors, enjoying the ocean breeze. It was the perfect setting for a delicious lunch.

This is one of our favorite places to eat in RI. Best chowder and clamcakes, best lobster salad rolls, best special dishes! We love eating on the patio, and in the winter, eating inside is cozy and feels like home!
