Thanks Maureen for down home service at this spectacular location for a belly busting seafood extravaganza. Get ready for leftovers (no problem the grub is great!). An easy place to enjoy a casual meal in a spectacular setting. Had the weather been warmer we'd have walked the whole length of the bay, just outside.

We went there with another couple. Three of us had the 11.95 special which included, clam chowder, two clam cakes, entree, and dessert. It was good, but nothing outstanding. For dessert, we ordered the brownie, but they only had one left. The only other choice for the dessert for the special was grape nut pudding. Two of us declined that... More

Great local seafood; apps, lunch or dinner by the bay. Summer entertainment on open-aired upper level for drinks & apps. "Stuffies" are a must try RI favorite!
