Governor Francis Inn has been around for as long as I have. Good food, good quality, good service and good prices have made it so.
It's funny but it's biggest claim to fame with locals isn't an entree or appetizer... it's the vegetable. They make the best butternut squash you've ever tasted. Any time I go in and the butternut squash is one of the daily vegetable choices, no matter what else I order I'm going to love my meal!
For what it's worth, I always order seafood or Italian, but my husband goes for the turkey dinner. This is the place for well-prepared standards, not for modern fushion cuisine. I have absolutely NO idea why the cuisine of this restaurant is listed as "Californian". Maybe as a joke! It's traditional RI cuisine.
