Providence Oyster Bar on Atwells Ave or Hemenway's on South Main Street are two suggestions. You can check out their websites for menus.

People LOVE heminways but I have never had a good experience there. Over the last 15 years I have probably been there one every three years or so and never really enjoyed it. One time the food made me physically ill. It is a nice space to be in but I dont think their food is very good.

I have never been to the providence oyster bar but to put my two cents in, I would suggest trying that place over heminways.

My favorite seafood in RI isnt exactly "near" providence, it is the wharf tavern in bristol. It is about a 20 minute drive from downtown but it is in a beautiful spot.

Too bad about the bad experience at Hemenway's. But just as a point of clarification on Wharf Tavern, it's in Warren, not Bristol. Had a very nice meal there myself in June with my Dad.
