First and foremost, you better want to eat seafood. There was only one meat dish ($45 veal) and one veggie option. Stripper was quite good, but others were somewhat disappointed. The swordfish slice was very ragged-looking and not very attractive. We discovered the furry underside of the table. Our server said it was to deaden the noise; good thing since... More

Our second visit in four days was on a Monday; inside diningrooms were closed, patio only. Arrived 5:30 and by the time we left, diners were waiting outside and at the bar area, so quite busy. Appetizer of Spring Soup - brilliant almost unreal color, puree of interesting combination of vegetables, extremely fresh and flavorful. I would order it again... More

We had dinner out for the first time in a few years in town due to the fact we had a smaller group. This was recommended by our neighbors and now locals since they bought a house on island. The menu is an eclectic group of meats, seafood and pizza since they put in a brick oven at the back... More

Sunday lunch. Ordered pizzas, mixed green salad and scallops. Start with the pizza- one word to describe it was wet. As in the there was so much watery sauce it turned the pizza to mush. The salad with gorgonzola had, for some unknown reason, been liberally sprinkled with coarse salt. Like eating a pretzel, except it was salad. The scallops... More

Finest restaurant on the island and certainly one of the finest in the state. We loved our lunch on their patio and later had a splendid meal in their main dining room. Their wait staff is dynamite, wine list exceptional, and the chef extremely talented and personable. Go there for the amazing pasta with clams, octopus, and whatever specials they... More

Family members brought me to this restaurant in June when I returned to my childhood playground – Jamestown. Upon arrival, I was immediately impressed with their excellent signage and beautiful interior. It had a hip and modern feel to it. They serve locally harvested food which I applaud and appreciate. Although it was a very expensive entree, I just had... More

Very fresh look in the dining room with a pleasant out door dining option. Service was excellent. Kale soup was very favor full and spicy( our waitress warned us of spiciness). Main course bass was excellent, perfectly cooked. A very extensive and interesting wine list competitively priced. Food prices on the high side but the quality justified it. Would definitely... More

FiSH is a great find. We thought the entrée prices would mean a lot of plate, but not so. It is finer dining without the pretense and just the right amount of pomp. There is a dress code. The local seafood is delicious with a Rhode Island flair and prepared with root vegetables grown in the restaurant garden. The fish... More

We picked the restaurant because others had given it high marks, and because our walk up and down Narragansett Avenue in Jamestown revealed that it is one of the few that has a nice outside patio. The food was very good - we had a shark special and a scrod special - just the right sized portions and served with... More

We haven't been here since it became "Jamestown Fish" a few years ago, but we will definitely be back. They have a nice outdoor seating area and a bar in back with a fire pit which we sat around while we waited for a table. The outdoor menu is smaller (maybe just bar food really) so we opted for sitting... More
