“Stop Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

A relaxed and low-key place for lunch. Stopped for fuel before getting on the highway for Massachusetts. The food was fresh, piping hot, and plentiful. We ate at the outside picnic table areas and watched boaters on the river. Would definitely eat here again. Delicious enjoyable.

“Way off base”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Just came back from a week trip to visit relatives in Southern New England and as always LOVE to get my seafood and clam chowder fix while there. We were meandering the back roads and stopped here to get a meal. BIG MISTAKE. #1 Prices were outrageous, we were hungry and needed a fix so we did order and were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED.#2 Did the chowder maker forget to put the clams in?? I ate chowder all week this was the worst. #3 My daughter got the fish and chips, It came with clam or scallop shells in the batter, not one but A FEW BIG PIECES, She wouldn't eat the rest.
#4 The fried clams were good but for the price, FORGETABOUTIT. Go somewhere else!!!!!!
PS: Possibly some adult supervision on the weekend would solve some of these food problems.

“Fresh seafood and can't beat the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

stopped by for dinner recently and were pleasantly surprised by the food and service. Although the seafood platter was waay to big for our family. Staff were friendly and not overbearing. Location was great but the day we went it rained, so we didn't get to enjoy the location by the water as much.

“The lobster roll is the best ever! The waterside setting is beautiful....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

A great casual spot for yummy local seafood. The Rhode Island chowder rocks and lobster roll is killer! Great kids menu too. Food is delivered quickly and staff is friendly and accommodating. A favorite spot for me

“2nd time and better than first”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We dined at Evelyn's about two years ago and everything was exceptional. This Year (August, 2013) we returned and were greeted with another outstanding meal and experience. The fried shrimp and fish and chips were excellent and so was the view in the late afternoon/evening. Service was perfect and very professional. It was a Monday night and Evelyn's was very crowded as usual but we were seated immediately. We will be back!
