I stopped in for a lunch on a weekday and was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the menu and the quality of the entrée I had. It was a hot day and I was seeking shaded outdoor dining and lots of lemonade and they had both, and really good service to boot.

Always an enjoyable dinning experience at a great waterfront location. The Seafood is awesome & has always been consistent & very good with each visit we have made. They serve the best mashed potatoes around!

My last night before I flew home from vacation and I wanted to try this place. They didn't take reservations for two, but would take it for 4 or more. My only knock on this place is because of this. We arrived early and still took a hour to be seated. They had three hostess girls working and were a... More

If you're looking for a great seafood restaurant at a decent price with a view to die for (if you're lucky enough to get a seat on their dockside patio) than enjoy the fruits of their labor! Located on the Bristol harbor this location alone will make you excited for food from the start. The menu which has typical bowls... More

Restaurant is right on the waterfront which has a great view and open deck. I decided on the Rhode Island chowder and the lobster roll. The chowder is the same as New England clam chowder except with a clear broth. It came right out piping hot and was good. The lobster roll was overflowing with meat and was not drown... More

We had fried calamari and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. Both were excellent. I had a lobster roll which was also excellent. The location is great with a water view.

This would have received 5 stars, however, our server seemed to be bothered by helping us or taking our order. The NE clam chowder was awesome! I loved it. My friend ordered the seafood stew, which was less than satisfactory. We would have shared this with our server had she come and checked on us. My rating is on MY... More

Traveling home from a visit to bustling Newport, we decided to stop at Quito's in Bristol- not our first stop. The outdoor deck area was busy so we ate inside. My husband ordered a local beer; I had one of the monthly cocktail specials. Both were perfect for the breezy warm summer day. We ordered Fried Calamari, Fish Tacos, and... More

I should have reviewed this restaurant a long time ago. Every summer we go eat there several times and everything is just delicious! Chowder, clam cakes, fish and chips, scallops,lobster. It's all good. There are lines at times but they do take reservations for a party of 6 plus. I wish I could take this restaurant back to Florida in... More

Weekday dinner at Quito's on a nice summer evening. The patio was packed so as not to wait, we ate inside. Still great water views. Since this is a seafood market, everything is fresh. I was concerned about the "smashed potatoes", but honestly they were very tasty and filled up a teenager. Had the Seafood Cassorole and you get a... More
