“Great place for quick dinner”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Was a last minute decision to stop for a quick meal - good location (once you find it), good food for the price and very nice wait staff. Good menu with lots of variety - Great view of the marina. Overall good experience - would go back.

“Worth the time to find the restaurant.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

We were on a road trip (heading to New Bedford from Newport) and decided to eat here for dinner. Part of the fun was trying to find Melville among all ships and warehouses. I had their award-winning fish chowder in the bread bowl... Both were excellent! The bread was puffy-soft and perfect for wiping the chowder clean. My husband had the lobster roll, and said he'd give it 4 out of 5. But note: this is the first time he's ever had it.

“Reasonably-priced fare”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The food is reasonably priced and decent in taste. We have only been there once and I had the fried clams. Unfortunately, they were overdone and came out very crunchy. But perhaps things have improved since then.

“If you can find it - try it!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Unless you arrive by boat at the Melville Marina in Portsmouth, RI, you would be hard-pressed to find the Melville Grille hidden amidst the canyons of boatyard buildings off Stringham Road in Portsmouth. The food was very good. I had the Salad with Salmon that was nicely prepared. If you are looking to "eat like a local", try the Melville Grille.
