After spending the day bopping about the Jamestown area, we decided to grab an early dinner before heading home. We first stopped at Simpatico and sat down, and then saw the menu and it was not to our liking at all and left. Limited selections, very high prices, and very little light fare (sandwiches? none). The reason it was obviously packed was due to the outside bar area that had a Steel Drum band. We went down the street and looked at the Oyster Bar menu and it looked decent, but we decided to explore a little further just to ensure we weren't missing anything and looked into the Narragansett Cafe (typical bar menu, and live Blues music). Okay, not just Blues music, but eardrum popping LOUD, unable to carry on a conversation or enjoy your meal Blues music! Now, I grew up in the age of Punk, and many times stood in front of a speaker tower for the Ramones, but I wouldn't try to eat a meal and talk during their set? Okay, back to Oyster Bar. Turned out to be a great choice with very good food, glasses of house wine for under $5.00, and a comfortable bar/dining area with a breeze blowing in open windows. What a terrific ending to our day in Jamestown! We had stuffies (stuffed quahogs for those that don't recognize stuffies), a Pan-Fried Crab Cake sandwich, and a Grilled Salmon sandwich with bacon and dill sauce. All was excellent. Fries were perfect and the slaw tasty. Would definitely stop back in if we were in the area again. Give it a try if you have the chance!
