This place is just a small dive right on the water. It's cool looking. The food is probably slightly over priced but it is certainly decent. The atmosphere is relaxing. I found it pretty enjoyable.

Good food, fresh, on a patio overlooking the water. Your basic seafood joint, full bar, friendly service, and much more than just fried food.

Excellent menu choices, service and a nice view of Nanaquaket Pond. This time, as I have a few times before, I had the fried clam platter. It is a classic New England presentation and there are plenty. It is nice that the regular servers remember how I like my Budweiser in a glass with a lemon. One suggestion - Don't... More

The view was fantastic, really great setting overlooking the water. Food was a solid "B". I enjoyed my grilled fish on a salad, my SIL loved her grilled shrimp. Enjoyed our visit.

What a rip off. We decided to try Evylin's after driving past for years and hearing this was the place to go from reviews. Well, this is clearly an overpriced, low quality seafood tourist trap and any local New Englander thinking this is good seafood at a good price is clearly misguided. As the title says, the only plus we... More

Saw this place on Diners, Drive-In's, and Dives....we were close enough to drive down and try it...glad we did. Really liked the RI clam chowder...flavorful, but much more broths than the creamy NE chowder...nice change of pace. Best thing is the clam fritters. Doughy, crispy crust...dip in the chowder broth and enjoy. Could eat a million of them. A bit... More

Sat down and ordered two large fried clam dinners. Should have ordered the regular portion! That's a lot of food. Took some home. The clams could not have been fresher. Fried, yet still tasting of the sea. Very light batter, and fried to perfection remaining moist and plump. Came with french fries and slaw. The slaw was perfect, at least... More

Great location, friendly, staff, food is adequate, nothing special. They ran out of fries the night we were there - odd timing for the summer season.

I had lived in Tiverton way back in the 1980s, and during that time had stopped in quite regularly. Since moving away, I had eaten here while visiting friends. but, it had been almost 20 years. The ambiance is still the same. Which means very good. But,I do think it is now playing to its reputation. I ordered a fried... More

We drive by this place daily to get to where we stay in RI every year for the last 10 years. After watching DD&D's decided to try. Ordered a small order of fried clam strips to try, and two cheeseburger meals. The clam strips were good, I've had comparable at other RI restaurants but we did finish the order. The... More
