“Summer by the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Summer in New England has to include a visit to a clam shack, and Iggy's Doughboys and Chowder House in Narragansett is one that fits the bill. We visit Iggy's for typically two things: fried clams and their delicious clam cakes. The latter are especially good with clam chowder, which we make at home. The fried clams (whole bellies) are always good. Nice and crispy with a light batter.
It can get quite crowded on nice summer days, especially on weekends, and you typically have to put in your order and stand outside and wait for your number to be called. We always do take-out, but they do have a small indoor area and picnic benches outside.

“Doughboys are dyno-mite!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

My fiancé & I decided to enjoy a beautiful early summer day with a drive to Point Judith and see the lighthouse. I so love that RI has the best clam shacks by the beach. Of course we stopped by Iggy's for their famous doughboys to take with us to the lighthouse. Let me say they are heavenly! Made to order with cinnamon sugar so well worth the wait. I believe doughboys are a RI specialty as the closest thing to them is fried dough. Yet doughboys are way better than the typical friend dough..light and fluffy and a bit sweeter. We got a dozen which was more than enough. I advise skipping a dozen donuts and get a bag of doughboys for an extra special treat!

“Chowdah disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

After a drive from central CT to the Rhode Island shoreline, my wife and I invariably are in need of a clam cake and chowdah fix. This day we chose Iggy's and were disappointed to discover the choices for chowdah were limited to Manhattan or New England. How could Iggy, a presumed native, not offer RI chowdah? I will accept no substitutes and neither should you, so we limited ourselves to a dozen (clam cakes – the counter person will know what you ordering). These were beautiful to behold, but finding a piece of clam, I counted 2, was the equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack. Since clam cakes and chowdah (RI that is) are like a horse and carriage, we will satisfy our next craving somewhere other than Iggy's. Helpful hint – there are coupons on Iggy's website that will save you a few dollars.
