Classic Westerly

Great wine list, wonderful food, eclectic shops nearby this downtown mainstay. Old money beach vibe makes this a unique experience with classy service and food choices.

In a pinch, this place will do for dinner after the beach, but it's a little overpriced due to the fact that it's the only restaurant serving dinner on the main street in town. The menu has a little bit of everything. $14 for a yummy greek salad, but the large piece of boneless chicken added to it for an... More

Worth the stop in. Nice restaurant for a quick lunch or dinner. Right in the heart of Watch Hill. Good variety on the menu - everyone in the family found something they liked.

Spent the day at the Watch Hill beach and went searching for a place to grab a quick bite. We luckily got in before the lunch rush where the line was long to sit and eat. Everyone had a decent meal and they offered items for the kids. Wait staff were friendly but service wasn't the fastest.

Watch Hill is a very small town and Olympia is the only place to eat, literally. There is only 1 or 2 other places here. You will have a wait for a seat and once you get in the staff is ready to to assist. The beer is good with a few local craft brews and there is a small... More

Couldn't believe how slow the kitchen was for a simple lunch. Very expensive, as well. But with limited options, what can you expect? They are under no pressure to excel here. The food tastes fine, but nothing special. Strange decor choices.

Great bar with the best bartenders. Food is phenomenal with multiple selections. I had the Portuguese fish special which was spicy and cooked perfect. My girlfriend had the scallops cooked perfect and plenty when served with home made orzo. We always do a dinner at the bar when visiting during the summer.

Great Oysters and the special of Scallops with Rigatoni and Pancetta was superb. They knew how to make a great Manhattan. Dinner for 2, 6 courses and 2 drinks was $115. Very reasonable for such quality.

It's basically the only restaurant in Watchhill. It is usually packed. We were able to get right in for a late lunch on Saturday. The food was ok as was the service.
