Reasonable prices, great service and a friendly atmosphere are all part of Balch's. Joe, the owner and chef, will visit your table to see how things are going with you and your family. He grows his own fresh vegetables in the garden on the premises....More

Loved the early-bird (by 5 p.m.) pork weiner schnitzel with mashed potatoes and red cabbage ($13.95). Very tender, huge portion, and delicious. Queen-cut prime rib was HUGE and luscious, too ($21.95). Rhode Island clam chowder was also excellent, and you don't see that around too...More

This place continues to amaze us. Had some of their Octoberfest dishes last night, and we were absolutely delighted..... The huge, thick, boneless smoked pork chop with apple fritter on top, potato pancake, sauerkraut, and chunky applesauce was wonderful. The kraut even tasted home-made. The...More

This is a wonderful place to get a great seafood dinner. Sunday's offer dinner with soup or salad starting early in the day. We enjoyed the fish and chips, crab cakes, fried oysters and baked cod dinners. Wonderful service!

Originally, this restaurant was a cafeteria style fish place. But several years ago it changed to a full-service seafood restaurant. Of course you can get dishes other than fish. The freshness and tasty recipes of the food is outstanding. It is a bit pricey, but...More
