Nice little play on the river in Westerly. I had the fish and chips it was very good with a light batter, cold slaw, fries and tarter sauce. My wife had the fish of the day baked haddock, the fish was just right however the vegetables where a little over cooked, that is the only reason I couldn't give a... More

The food and service were amazing and great view! I will be a regular. Best Fish and Chips ever with a delicious fill tartar sauce.

If you want a traditional breakfast food with Johnny cakes this is the place to go. Nice clean luncheonette type. Friendly service. Good food. I especially like the sweet and white potato home fries.

I wanted to like this restaurant. The fish and chips were good; the rest- not so good. My boyfriend had fish that was bad and had to be sent back. The next time we went I had fried oysters, they came to the table barely cooked and even the waiter said- oh yes they aren't cooked so they had to... More

. A local diner with good food and a diner décor. We had Rhode Island clam chowder (hard to find) and it was excellent. We followed that with codfish cakes, which were okay but nothing special. This is a simple local restaurant. If you are looking for the chowder, go. Otherwise, it is okay if you are in the area.

Two Washington state residents struck gold in this small restaurant on the banks of the Pawtucket in Westerly, RI. Gold in this case refers to the best Johnny Cakes ever! This bright and airy restaurant has big windows looking out on the river and beyond in the likely direction of the Davis farm that produces the flint corn for the... More

We had dinner there over the weekend and were very pleased with the food and prices. The menu is limited but the haddock was yummy yummy yummy. My daughter had a burger and it was sooooo good too. We will definitely be going back there!

Stopped by here this weekend and was not disappointed! First off we sat up on the roof outside, which has a nice view of the marina and on a nice day, made it that much more relaxing. The service was good, we were seated and waited on quickly, even though they weren't overly busy at the time. Two of us... More

What a pleasant surprise. Great food, wonderful service and it's a byob. You can't go wrong here. Great fish tacos. Superb R.I. clam chowder (non creamy)

Loved the setting...the clam chowder was weak and tasteless. The baked haddock special was very good but the rice and veggies were overcooked. It's BYOB so remember that. Sandwiches seem to be the mainstay. One favorable point is they use fresh, seasonal ingredients, produce, and seafood.
