Great very friendly and personal service. The prices are more than fair we had chowder and clam cakes. The chowder is an authentic RI clear chowder, with plenty of fresh clams. The clam cakes were light airy, full of clams and not the least bit greasy. After 30 years in the seafood business I can say the best I have... More

I came here many years ago and vaguely remembered it being ok. Times have changed! We called in our order to expedite the process as it was a Saturday early evening and we waited 30 minutes for nothing! The Fried trout with clam fritters were awful. The chowder was more like dirty dish water with potatoes floating in it. Bay... More

Went there The other evening for dinner. Got the whole belly clam roll. It was great. The roll was full over the top and the fries were good. While it's not 5 star dining it is a great place for a casual meal.

Tradition place to go for clam cakes. People can't wait for it to open for the chowder and clam cakes. I've been going there for years so what can I say. I also worked for the family that owns the place a million years ago. Not much has changed. Place is still packed on the weekends. People love those clam... More

We were on a long car trip and this was a good time to stop... It may not look like much from the outside... We ate inside (because it was cooler). The Rhode Island clam chowder (clear!) was really tasty --- like the sea -- one of the best ever. The clam fritters were really good... The lobster roll was... More

We were looking for seafood and a bit of air conditioning to get out of the heat! We found both. Great menu and service. If you use a credit card, be sure to bring cash as you can't tip on the credit card.

How anybody can give this abomination of a restaurant a good review is beyond me. I dont mind paying for expensive food if it is actually good but the food here is embarrassing. I went there with friends, we were a party of 4 so we ordered a variety of items on their menu and everything was terrible. The chicken... More

They are expensive, just 4 pieces of chicken fingers is $7 and if you add to make a dinner $3 which is total $10 for 4 pieces chicken finger and French fries not included drinks. When you order, they will not give you a receipt. They will just call your name if the food is ready. My daughter is hungry... More
