my favorite beach restaurant for years until today. the order taker was abrupt , didn't ask if we wanted drinks with our order and made us wait while at least 7 orders came up before ours. when the food came it was inedible. my chowder was tomato juice and potatoes, my son's $29.00 seafood platter was a smelly undercooked mess....

a short walk to the beach, a great place to grab lunch and some cocktails. We really enjoy going during the summer. The renovations over the last couple of years have added to the restaurant in many ways. Downstairs is a fish market, and a good place to grab some lobsters for dinner, or for lunch!

Champlin's has a beautiful location on the water--we took our seafood platters out on the deck and watched the boats and it was absolutely a great experience. Most of the food is fried--but it is fresh and delicious. We especially enjoyed the clam strips and lobster salad. Definitely worth a stop for a great lunch!

Champlin's is right on the water. Not near the water, across from the water, or the water is visible is you lean waaay to the right. If you took too many steps you'd be in the channel playing chicken with the Block Island Ferry as it goes by. The food is, for the most part, fried. Since fried food has... More

We visited this place after an absence of about 40 years. The good news is nothing has changed, the bad news is nothing has changed. The food is good for most items. The drinks are fair and the bar maid upstairs is excellent. The bad news is that it looks and feels like it has not been updated for 50... More

The chowder is delicious and full of clams and then the huge crispy clam cakes.......if you are not from RI, you will not know what these are but go to Champlins to try them. What a view from the upstairs deck: the sunset and during the day you have great views of the waterway with lobster/fishing boats coming in. A... More

Stopped for lunch on our way to Newport. The view was nice and enjoyed watching the boats coming in. The food was greasy. The salmon was soaked in way too much butter. Everything is fried or breaded. Had dinner the next day at Georges and loved it. Wish we had gone there twice. Nicer atmosphere and quality and choices of... More

Casual, self serve picnic tables inside and out with great views overlooking the water and ferries returning from Block Island and the amazing sunset. We had surprisingly well prepared gin & tonics and mojitos in plastic cups followed by clean and fresh shrimp and king crab legs served with grated horseradish and cocktail sauce from the raw bar. The dinners... More

Sit on the deck or in the dining area and enjoy the view of boats in the harbor - delightful. Oh...yes, of course there's food. We had whole lobsters with a side order of oysters...wonderful, just wonderful! The people taking our order were helpful and friendly which added so much to our experience. After dinner we walked on the sidewalk... More
