“Stunningly fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

You must go to Monahan's if you go to Narragansett. They are by the ocean, they are superfriendly, but best of all their seafood is amazing. My husband had ahi tuna tacos that were spicy, fresh, and delicious. I had the fried fish sandwich, which was flash fried and tasted like it had been caught five minutes previously. Try the calamari with hot peppers. Highly recommend!

“BEST. CLAMCAKES. EVER.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Seriously. Aunt Carrie's clamcakes don't even compare, I've been coming here for years. The chowder and clam strips are also very good, my only complaint is the line for food during lunch and dinner. You can sit with you food on the pier and have an excellent view of the beach, and if you eat here at night there is a very romantic view of the Newport bridge lit up.

“Best lobster roll in New England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Traveled through New England on a road trip from Rhode Island to Maine. We ate lobster rolls at four different restaurants and this one was the best. Get the hot roll with butter, you won't regret it.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Compared with other clam shacks in the area Monahan's was pretty average. Long lines for clamcakes that appeared to have no clams. Chowder was weak. Outdoor seatiing with a view of Narragansett was pleasurable. Would not go back.

“Its by the sea food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Clam cakes are clam cakes. They are friend balls of dough with clams. Fried and clams being the operative words. That's what they sell here.

Grab a few clam cakes or other fried foods, sit at the picnic tables and watch the sea.

It's fun and good see the sea food.
