Always my favorite stop while in Watch Hill. Great drinks, nice portions, clean rest rooms, orderly and managed well. Wonderful lobster cocktail; delicious halibut. Had lunch and returned for dinner at the bar! Busy, friendly staff. Busy place, but timely and attentive. Tough parking during the season. Again, good management / ownership / staff maintenance. Great job, as always. P.

Stopped in for drinks and an appetizer on an absolutely beautiful summer day. Sangria, Tangeray & Tonic and calamari; all was delicious. We chose fried calamari served with both marinara and hot peppers on the side. We sat outside under the awning ( a nice respite from the sun) overlooking the Watch Hill Yacht club at Napatree Point. It was... More

This place is clearly popular and for good reason. The menu offers a wide variety of choices, you can sit inside or out, and everything was tasty.

We have eaten at the Olympia Tea Room twice once for lunch and once for an early dinner. We went to lunch two years ago expecting a tea room atmosphere. It turned out to be more like the neighborhood pub. Upon reading the history of the restaurant we came to the conclusion it had a name change during prohibition to... More

This restaurant has been in Watch Hill since ice was a nickel. Comfy, cozy, locals and tourists coexist.

Dining in the Southern Rhode Island/Connecticut vacation area is rich in competition. The Olympia Tea Room while serving good food is not one of the best. We found the food good not great, the environment dark and dated, and the cost very high. There are much better choices in the area.

This is a laid back restaurant where one can relax and enjoy a pleasant lunch or dinner. We had the mussels, lamb, tuna, lobster roll. All was very fresh and tastey with attentive service. If you like, you can sit outside and enjoy people watching and the little harbor.

This restaurant is the only one in town and that's the only reason it's still in business. The building is beautiful and historic, the views are great, but the food is disappointing. It could be a GREAT place because it is the only restaurant in town, but the food is overpriced and not worth the wait. The steak is decent... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. It has a full bar with quality wine choices. The presentation is as amazing as the flavors of the dish. The view of the sunset in the harbor can be breathtaking.

I guess I'm lucky as I didn't experience the long wait as in the summer - I had lunch here in early October, no waiting. Very nice staff and lunch was excellent - a good menu it was hard to choose. WIll definitely be back.
