Hard to believe but the Hitching Post does have the best lobster roll around for a great price. Lot's of lobster meat and little lettuce on a toasted bun.Get the lobster roll dinner with O rings and slaw for a great take home meal. We do it all the time during the season.

Used to be very good but got chowder this year that tasted like dishwater! We told the guy at the window and he said he'd pass on the news and shut the window. Guess they didn't care but it was horrid. The fish was burnt, the scallops were okay but paid quite a bit. Pricey..

Ate there with the family yesterday. Totally overpriced. Worst RI chowder we've ever had clams and potatoes were almost nonexsitant. Won't happen again.

Was directly across from our hotel -- Krystal Penguin great stay-- was pretty hyped on yelp and I saw a lot of cars there - always a good sign. Ordered the RI clam chowder -taste was ok poor job actually adding clams. Very disappointed in that. Also had a plate of fried shrimp. Very good but how does one mess that up? these clam fritters they all rave about --blehh tiny piece of clam surrounded by dough. not at all sure what the big deal was but as I said people seem to rave over them. I don't want to be completely negative but overall outside of the servers being very nice (isn't everyone in RI?) I saw nothing worth the effort (if one needs to make an effort --we as i said were staying across the street)
I also had the fish and chips pretty greasy (i guess they didn't rest it on any towels before serving it) and honestly just so so.
PS as an aside careful at outside tables around dusk we sat outside and got tore into by mosquitos very cute back there but we payed :)

Thank Chris R
