We walked into Scampi having not read any reviews: that was a mistake. My husband and I dine out frequently. We thought the prices were on the high side, but were hopeful the meals would be worth the price. After taking our orders, our waitress said she'd be out with the bread: it never happened, but we let that slide.... More

Have been going to Scampi for a couple of years. Food has always been very good & so has the service. Prices are reasonable. There was "nothing" done for the birthday person, would have been nice after spending a good $200.00 (dinner for 4). Maybe even a "Happy Birthday" when we were leaving.

We are locals that have been visiting Scampi for a few years. We had dinner here on Saturday late afternoon. Service was very good, the food not so much. My husband had the catch of the day, which was broiled haddock. The fish was flavorless but the worst part of the meal were the mashed potatoes, looked and tasted like... More

We drove six hours from Vermont to have a weekend in this great area and as it was our anniversary we were given a huge recommendation from friends to go to Scampis on the water in Portsmouth. The waitress couldn't be nicer but our special dinner Seafood Scampi was a disaster. Both lobsters were extremely tough and hard. The shrimp... More

We were excited to try Scampi. Unfortunately, our expectations where not met. Service was extremely slow - took 1 hour to get mussels and a salad. After waiting all that time to finally eat, Our dinners were not flavorful and not prepared with ingredients as expected. Mussels were the worst I've ever had. Ironically, The place is called Scampi, so... More

We were a large family party, and two guests were delayed by almost 2 hrs. The waitress was kind, patient and gracious. She took orders for apps, and meals for the kids, then took orders for the rest of the meal after we were all together. I loved the Lobster Club. I try to stay away from Gluten so put... More

Went with the family while visiting RI. Seafood was good. Atmosphere was very beachy. Had a nice outdoor patio w umbrellas for good weather. Food was good but spent a long time waiting.

The beef tips were soooo good. We were dine in guests for the celebration of my grandson's graduation. The service was very good and also the food. We had a marvelous first time experience of Rhode Island and what it has to offer. I would recommend it highly. The people were so gracious in the congratulatory remarks for my grandson.... More

I love seafood, hubby loves chops and steaks, great for both. Fresh seafood( I am picky), sauces are amazing. Great staff, indoor and outdoor seating, casual or fancy whatever you want it to be!

Their seafood is great. The service is also great. You can either dine in or out and you have a spectacular view of the ocean.
