I have been to Evelyn's quite a few times...always good food, nice pleasant waiters & hostesses. We sit outside next to the Nanaquaket Lake. Pleasant view. Excellent fried scallops. The only place I will eat them !!!! Try their Wicked Chicken Sandwich...daughter gets it very time...Their clam fritters and the chowder is also very good. Not a very large room... More

The food quality is terrible for what you pay for. The portions are very small. The prices are outrageous! We will never go back.

It was a goal of mine to find Evelyn's Drive-In and visit it when in this area, which is quite a haul from my house -- about 3 hours. Last Friday, I visited and enticed a friend to join me - which was her first time as well. We sat in the serviced area outside overlooking the lake. What a... More

Small, simple restaurant with good food, great view and cold drinks. Perfect for those days after the beach. Make sure to order the grilled scallops and shrimp.

Evelyn's has been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives; Phantom Gourmet; and more, so it has gained popularity. Before you go to Evelyn's you should realize that you are, in part, paying for the amazing view of the lake. Although not expensive, some prices are higher than those at similar restaurants. There is a take-out window and picnic tables, or... More

Stopped by here for lunch on Tuesday, August 26th with my daughter, son in law and sister. Found the prices way out of line compared to many of the seafood places I have visited in my last two weeks here in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Given, the setting along the river is beautiful but the food was just plain awful... More

Ordered at the take out window so we could sit at the shaded picnic tables. Full service dining is offered on the patio. Had wonderful RI clam chowder with a lobster salad. The clear broth based chowder was seasoned perfectly and had diced potatoes along with clams. Not a grain of sand in the cup. The lobster was obviously old... More

TOTAL RIPOFF. Went to Evelyn't for the first time this season, and the owners should be ashamed of themselves. They are known for lobster rolls with all tail meat. The draw back is that you have to cut the lobster and mix it with the mayo yourself, so it isn't cold like most lobster rolls.Last season the price was in... More

This is not our first trip here. Our daughter rents a place in the summer in Little Compton so we usually make a trip here. It has been featured on Chronicle (Boston Ch 5). They have a pick-up window, outside or inside dinning. Although the outside has a great view we prefer the A/C. We were there for lunch. I... More

My husband and I were in Newport for the Jazz Festival and we searched on Phantom Gourmet for places to eat, assuming anything in downtown Newport would be too crowded. This was a short ride (11 miles) from our hotel, and easy to get to. The food came out FAST and was very good. We had the clamcakes and seafood... More
