Dont understand the attraction..Drove a long way to try the chowder, clams and clam cakes. Prices are high, parking a mess, and the food just ok. However, the chowder is top shelp but not worth a long ride to get it

The prices are high, the parking is horrible if its busy,the food is ok,portions are ok. I am giving it one star, based of the location and the view. But there are places all along the waterfront that have great views. Not worth the trek

Nice roadside dine in carry out experience. The setting - right on the river in this small town, the aura, is insane. A tad pricey but well worth it. Stopped here on the way from Little Compton back home to NJ.

Sitting outside on crushed quahog shells enjoying a sunset along the water was idyllic. My margarita was pretty good - the food was okay - service was so-so. I'd eat here again, when I'm next in the area, but not for the food as much as for the location. I would not make a special trip just for this restaurant.

My wife and I made the trip from seaside Massachusetts to Evelyn’s in Tiverton, RI to experience DDD’s highly recommended seafood. When Guy Fiere says “that’s money” I didn’t realize he was talking about the cost! $32 for a clam plate is outrageous. It’s summertime, we’re in New England, and Evelyn’s is on the water, so why are these clams the highest priced that I’ve ever run across? And ‘sweet and tender ‘ doesn’t apply here. Mine were chewy and strong flavored. Not even close to what you can get at any seaside clam shack in MA. So when the check was presented, 1 order of fish and chips, a clam plate, a small order of clam cakes, and 2 pepsi’s / with tip added up to $70. You have to be kidding!! I elevated Evelyn’s to 2 stars only because of the location. Eating outside and on the water is worth a star. Save your money and go elsewhere, 21 bucks will get you a large helping of tender clams all over New England.
