This restaurant is a seaside gem in Narragansett. There is a large menu of seafood items. We ordered the cold lobster roll (they have hot or cold), a bowl of red clam chowder, coconut shrimp & fries, and our daughter ordered a hotdog. Servers bring...More

Stand in line and wait -but worth waiting for. Great New England chowder, clam cakes, clam strips, oysters, and more. Sit at picnic tables and watch the water. A perfect spot for a beautiful day or evening for the beach feel.😎

Worth the wait ! Clam cakes were huge and hot . Will definitely have to go back . A little crowded and along the way to go with peak hours and not much seating but who cares when the food is good

Awesome clam shack on the ocean. We had some of the best scallops and lobster rolls ever!! Lobster rolls are served hot or cold and both are fabulous. And the scallops are perfect! Pricey, but you get a lot and worth every penny!

I live locally, and this is by far the best lobster roll in town. I like the hot version. Lots of lobster, butter, tasty roll. Have also had the chowder which is very good. Usually a long line but worth the wait.

This place is absolutely worth the wait in line! Many many things to choose from. I highly recommend the tuna tacos!

Very good fried seafood and other basic food and ice cream at reasonable prices. They have the best fried scallops and onion rings versus other fried seafood places in the southern Rhode island. The clam strips and fried oysters are also very good. The only...More
