“Best Sandwiches EVER!!! COOKIES are great too!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We come here a lot!! All the sandwiches are good, My favorite is the Odd couple, and the pepper turkey. While you are in you must try the little cookies the owners mother makes!!! They are addictive and if they ever have the orange cranberry cake get that too!!! Do not miss this while in Narragansett! Close to the beach as well. Enjoy!!

“Quick place to grab a sandwich”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

The Picnic Basket does well in the summer. They sell sandwiches and quick things to eat, so it is popular with the beach crowd. They are located in a strip mall not too far from Narragansett Beach (5 minute walk). Pretty good food. A bit pricey.

“Save your money!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I do realize it was Labor Day Weekend. But, this experience had nothing to do with the weekend. We spent shy of 45min waiting for one sandwich, nothing big a pastrami on rye, How hard can that be. Oh, that's right the sandwich was that hard! It had to be sitting there for who knows how long before we got it. But! if you came in after us and did not want to wait quitely like we were, you could complain and get you sandwich next. It would of felt better to throw the 23.00 for a sandwich, small container of mac salad, soda, chips and a cinnamon bun in the ocean!! Never again!!! P.S. everyone there was so annoyed!

“Picnic Basket is the beach deli”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We eat at the Picnic Basket about twice a month in the summer and have been going for over twenty years. If you go at noon on a hot summer day, you will have a long wait while your sandwiches are made but there is little wait to order. Just go to the ORDER HERE sign instead of waiting in the cashier line like many of the tourists do.
We love their deli sandwiches like the Manny or the Cajun Cowabonga. The veggie wraps made with humus or cheese really fill you up. Everything is always fresh.
If you are the type of person who needs a lot of customization of your order, do not go when it is packed. It is too noisy and too busy for them to listen about which side of the bun you want buttered.
There is some seating outside with a view of the ocean. The high table inside also can see the sea. Usually there are trivia cards on the tables you can use to pass the time.
If it is really crowded tell the person at the register you are going over to Warm Winds Surf Shop next door and they will hold your order till you get back. On a really busy beach day, call in your order early from the beach and it will be there when you walk over.
Oh and if you are a guy, on a hot day it is a great place to girl watch.
