Description: A special treat in Portsmouth Rhode Island along the Sakonnet River. Busy, but not crowded, 15 Point offers casual upscale dining with an enchanting moonlit river view. A traditional menu, strongly influenced by the local bounty (especially from the sea), pleases most everyone and house specialties are an ever-changing eclectic delight of innovative and contemporary dishes. Once inside you will be entranced by the view of the Sakonnet River which leads out to the ocean beyond through the panorama of windows. While enjoying Al Fresco dining on our deck, across the river you will occasionally notice the local fishing boats as they make their way to the Tiverton fish market. If you're lucky enough, you might even catch one of the local lobstermen heading out to tend his lobster traps in Mount Hope Bay!

This small restaurant is on the water in Portsmouth, near Tiverton's Stone Bridge. It is a small, unpretentious place, but the atmosphere is sophisticated and relaxing.
In addition to their regular menu (I wish they didn't offer "Chilean Sea Bass," the most unsustainable fish in the sea, but I digress) there's an excellent prix fixe menu that includes soup or salad, a glass of wine from a reasonable selection, a main course with veggies and a dessert - all for $19!
My husband chose the duck and I was feeling particularly carnivorous, so I had the rib eye steak.
We both chose the cabernet, which was decent and not served in one of those thimble-sized wine glasses.
The bread rolls at the start of the meal were warm and crusty.
Service was polished and friendly.
All in all, a great meal - and a good deal. If we lived closer, we'd be regulars, but regardless, we'll definitely make the effort to return.

We've eaten at 15 Point Rd on three or four occasions and have enjoyed the food and delightful view. Among the entrees have been te Scampi (large, succulent shrimp over pasta) lobster sandwich on focaccia , delicious grilled pizza, and several appetizers. Just about everything was very good with the exception of the lobster roll which I believe was made with frozen lobster rather than fresh. I think it's a nice little spot for a lazy lunch or leisurely dinner. There is deck seating, weather permitting and lunch is served until 4 pm.

I have had dinner with friends the last two Friday nights. The food was outstanding, the atmosphere was very comfortable and considering it was very busy, it was not overly loud or destracting. The service (Ethan) was amazing. Sean (the owner) stopped by our table both weeks to make sure everything was ok. It was very obvious that a lot of effort goes into preparing the meals for each order with tremendously fresh a perfectly cooked food! The prices were certainly a value to the quality of the meals. I will definately go back again and again!!!

A panoramic view from both the patio and inside picturewinsows beckon, and a crisp attentive staff serves, but the seafood was disappointing. A pot pie had rubbery crust and seafood and the "Cajun tuna" was nicely spiced, and topped imaginatively with chevre, but was cooked medium well whether than medium rare, as requested.

We just had dinner at Fifteen Point for the second time in two weeks. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the marina the first time and the bugs were kept at bay throughout most of our meal. The food was very good, I had the tuna, it was cooked more medium than I like, but was delicious. Our second dining experience was just as good. We had a delicious bottle of wine that was substantially underpriced. All entrees were praised by our party of four. Our server was wonderful. This restaurant is a bargain for the area. Eat here instead of overpriced Newport.
