Ill start with the best part of this place, the location. Too bad your only other option is the Ocean House. The pries are high and the food is only average-good. Tip: eat in downtown Westerly and go to Watch Hill for dessert.

The Olympia Tea Room is a great spot to have lunch or an afternoon cocktail with appetizers with beautiful views of Little Narragansett Bay. The food is good. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. Try to get an outside table and enjoy the sunset if possible.

Great little restaurant in the villiage of Watch Hill. Across from Little Narraganset Bay with views of some very impressive yachts that might be docked. Always crowded at dinner time in the summer-- be there by 5:00 pm and you'll be sure of a table. Villiage closes down after Columbus Day so no problem getting a table through the Winter... More

We were happy to find out that The Olympia Tea Room was open last night. We traveled to Watch Hill for dinner only to find the restaurant that we wanted to eat at was closed for the season. At Olympia, the menu is diverse and the wine menu is extensive. I was a little surprised to find the beer list... More

I went with a large family group, and we still had been able to snag a great outdoor table. (Yes, with reservations - but I had had my own reservations about the feasability of this, if you follow me!) Get the linguine with clams, either as an entree or as a starter (what a nice touch). And thank you for... More

Were here for dinner on a late September Friday night. Waited about 15 minutes for a table. Always love the atmosphere here: casual, friendly crowd, historic, dark wood, owner Marcia Felber's paintings adorn the walls. (I am in LOVE with the cat painting on the wall near the bar). The butternut squash bruschetta app was delicious and we both had... More

Service and food were very good, being Watch Hill with snobs galore and parking a commodity did not take away from a pleasant experience.

Stopped in to the Olympia Tea Room on Sept. 12, 2014 for a late lunch. They had a brand new menu for Fall and was pleasantly surprised by how great everything was. Very well made cocktails; had salads for starters- very fresh and nicely dressed. We split the fish and chips which can be ho-hum, but not here. So good!!... More

We come here whenever we come to Rhode Island. The room is beautiful, the booths easily big enough for 3 or 4... Lots of locals, with the owner floating around and greeting all of us, even though it wasn't a weekend. My husband had the special half lobster with beans, corn and brussels sprouts... Gorgeous on the plate, fabulously good!... More
