Terrific spot for after the beach! Service was excellent; our server (I forget her name) was very accommodating and friendly. We didn't have a long wait for a table, and while we did wait, we went across the street to take pictures on the beach....More

This is a beach side restaurant that opened just a few years ago and it's very popular with the lunch crowd. I have not had a bad meal here yet. Fish and chips, burgers and salads are prepared and served up quickly and always delicious....More

The RI clear Chowder was really delicious - best I've ever had and I've been eating Chowder for 40 years.

We had such a great lunch on Saturday--which turned into drinks, oysters, and many laughs over the afternoon! Our server, Diandra, was awesome--great service and so nice. We've been there several times over the years and always enjoy the food, beach view, and fun atmosphere.
