Best seafood casual seafood choice in Narragansett

Casual and not pretentious. Great, fresh seafood seems like it came right off the boats docked nearby. Prices have increased, but the high quality selections make it worth the money. Fun location - bring the family. Be prepared to wait I. Line during the busy season.

We a party of 8, mostly kids. Food I'd say was just ok. Lobster Roll was the most expensive that I've seen here in town $19.95!!! but yet I got it because it was the first place that we went out on this trip and I didn't know any better. It was just ok at best and I didn't like... More

The lobster is the most tender and delicious I have ever had. Have been going year after year. Prices really went up this year. It is a very casual dining experience and the outside seating is nice but with the price increase, I may rethink visiting next year. For self serve and cafeteria trays, most restaurants will be a couple... More

If you need a spot to relax while waiting for the Block Island Ferry, Champlins is it. Seafood is ordered from a line, grab a drink, and head for the deck. Seafood is fresh and reasonable. A dark and stormy is also highly recommended. Downstairs is a coffee shop/bakery and a seafood market. So early birds can also make the... More

Went to this restaurant for lunch and would not recommend. I have visited nearly every restaurant in Narragansett and this was not a good visit. Food was fair-service was terrible. There is no table service you must order at window and wait-we waited 30 minutes for a cheeseburger and fries and the restaurant was not busy. I also ordered clam... More

Whenever we visit family in RI, we go to Champlin's. It's authentic and delicious. They have such great food with a great view!! We've never been let down, even in the dead of winter. Of course, high season summer, when the menu triples in size and you can sit outside is the very best! Try the scallop roll! ♡

Make sure you stop at this amazing seafood place, everything is Caught right across the bay. This is the only ones places left where the fish haven't had time to be frozen. Watch the fisher boats coming in and out all day from the bar deck. And , the most important, ask for one of Kerry's mudslides...

This place is so well located, just on the Galilee breakaway with a really terrific view of the water. The food is fresh and well done, but the deep fat fryer is king here. They do have a big plus with a full bar (well, mostly full-don't ask for anything too exotic). You can get the full range of seafood... More

Went here last week with my hubby and son. There's always a line on the weekends, but it moves quickly. Staff is very friendly. Fish is fresh and delicious. The outdoor tables are great, can't beat the view. The prices are very reasonable, too!

We've been here a couple of times over the years. They serve very fresh seafood. You order at the window and come and get it when your number is called. Generally long lines on weekends. The line move pretty slowly. There's just one person taking orders at the order window. I wish they would do something about that. You can... More
