St.Clare's has been serving sandwiches and ice cream forever it seems. my kids had ice cream there as toddlers and they are now in their late 40s and it was there before they went there. located next to the beach it is always crowded during the season. a nice place to stop. we never packed a lunch for the beach....

I had a good experience here- the staff was nice and the food was good. The lobster roll and fries was tasty and came in at $22.50 with a soda. Nice tables in a quiet town. Didn't have an ice cream this time but they are rumored to have the best in town.

Maybe they are sick of the crowds? Maybe they have been there over 100 years and know that you'll be back. Whatever the case, hardly a smile is to be seen when they serve you absolutely amazing ice cream, frozen lemonade or soft serve. The sandwiches and salads are nothing fancy but hit the spot at the beac.

If you're looking for a casual spot to eat, this is it. Best home made breakfast. Go back later for ice cream after dinner!

My sister and I came only for the ice cream, as we'd eaten at The Cooked Goose earlier and didn't have room for a meal. The ice cream is good, and the single scoop is affordable enough - however, if I read the sign correctly, the price almost doubles ($3.50 --> $6) for a second scoop, which seems unusually high....

Good thing they don't have much competition....once we got a table we were ignored....finally asked if we could order...had to ask for more napkins...asked for someone to come over and kill a bug...we were ignored again! I finally killed it myself!! After we asked for our check, we finally got a smile from the waitress!! Too little too late!

Tasty but tiny tuna roll, burnt fries, expensive and miserable staff. Husband got cheeseburger grinder which was delicious, but no fries, chips or anything with it as you usually get. Not terrible, but wouldn't go back.

Classis sandwich shop that's been a mainstay in Watch Hill for generations. The lobster roll is crammed with fresh lobster and the RI calm chowder is the best in southern New England. The real draw however is their ice cream which is made every day right on the premises. Peach ice cream made with fresh peachs, coffee oreo cookie and chocolate peanut butter cup are just some of the choices which change regularly. It is not to be missed!!
