My boyfriend and I were passing by Providence, RI and wanted to get some good Clam Chowder soup. We stopped by Blount and had some delicious New England clam chowder soups in a bread bowl. The service was very friendly and the location was convenient,...More

I saw that Blounts was offering a deal on Living Social so I jumped on it. My husband and I had been here before and enjoyed it very much. I then discovered that they had very strange hours (last time we went for lunch). They're...More

But still pretty good. Chowder, clam strips, and onion rings all delicious. Not much to this little place, but the service is pretty good, and it's good food fast. Portions are good sized, and prices are reasonable. Can't beat the Warren locale, though!

Four of us had lunch here and were pleased with our choices. I'm pretty picky about fried clam rolls, and always order the bellies as the strips have no taste. Bount delivers - fat bellies and none-to-heavy fry batter. Cole slaw was good, too. Others...More

This was my first experience with Blount clam cakes and I wasn't disappointed! I do have my particular favorites (what Rhode Islander doesn't!) but if you're in Providence and craving clam cakes, this is your best bet! I've even had them delivered to my shop...More

My husband and I tried this place for the first time the other day. The clam chowder was fantastic. They have a soup bar which I didn't try, but I'll certainly check it out next time. We both ordered fried fish sandwiches which we both...More

I visit Blount's locations on a semi regular basis, and I head to the Providence location in the winter or in inclement weather. I have to say they make a good clam cake. They are big, but not too big. The clam chowder is delicious...More
