Classic "Rhode Island" restaurant

This is the classic Rhode Island restaurant in that the menu is vast, the portions are generous, the wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable, the food is excellent and the prices are about 10 years behind the national chains. What more can you ask for? Special orders don't upset them - they... read more

My wife and I used to frequent Cowesett Inn back when we were dating and as newlyweds in the late 80's. We moved to Pennsylvania and had not returned for several years. We had family from out of town visit the area for a funeral so rather than take them to a chain we decided to give them a taste... More

this is a very place.very clean and with a great wait staff. They do go out of their way to make sure everything is just right. The veal is very good and the kids have always enjoyed the pasta dishes. They also serve some very nice sandwiches if you do not want a large meal. The food is always hot... More

Had some good veal parm and my hubby had great baked stuffed shrimp. We sat at the bar as we usually do and the bartender Joe was very helpful. Have to mention that the bar stools are very comfy too. We thought the prices were reasonable also. Only drawback was the lighting, as it is kind of dark with the... More

The Cowesett Inn has been around forever, and serves good food with fine service and very reasonable prices. I've never had anything bad there, though most of the food is pretty heavy, and I've never had anything terrific, either. Nice bar.

That's about all I can say. Some standards, fish and chips, shepards pie, they do well. Other dishes are not that good. The drink order and bread comes quick unfortunately the entry appears while you are still eating the salad. Wife and I are going out to dinner right now and CI is not in the decision mix.

During the 70's when I lived in Rhode Island Cowesett Inn was our Friday night restaurant. It was not as large as it is today thus causing the Friday night line for a seat out the door but we always waited. It was my pleasure to visit this restaurant last weekend on a trip through Rhode Island. My husband and... More

Surprised to find Cowesett Inn...a West Warwick restaurant....on their list. We hadn't been to Cowesett Inn in a few years.....!!! The menu sounded terrific.....lots of choices for entree and dessert....at $17.77 a person decided to give it a try. The offer exceeded our expectations. The four of us really loved our meals and huge portions. Three of us had the... More

It's been several years since we've been there. Used to be a very busy place. Not so much anymore. Interior is very dated and worn. Men's room is a disgrace with rust and broken partitions and general deteriorated appearance. The waitress was friendly and service OK but more of a "diner " approach to service than a quality restaurant. The... More
