We have a house across the bay in Newport so we have plenty of fine restaurants to choose from. It was great to go over the bridge to Jamestown and dine indoors at Jamestown Fish. Great atmosphere, in a bright and attractive setting with very good service. Our fish was great. May have been a fairly limited menu but everything... More

Enjoyed a really great dinner here on our stay in Jamestown. Extremely fresh seafood in a nice atmosphere-can't go wrong in choosing this restaurant.

While the atmosphere was very nice, I found the menu choices limited and overpriced. It took almost an hour between the time we ordered dinner and the time it was served, although the restaurant was not crowded.

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
