Good ice cream and the nice lady behind the counter gave us precise advice about the route and how long it would take to get to the lighthouse (so we would not miss the ferry.)

Got the fish and chips here for my husband and myself, while our kids had chicken burgers, as a takeout lunch. Fish was melt-in-your-mouth good and fries were excellent. Kids loved the chicken burgers. Cory was really nice--let me pop into the kitchen to grab the food as she'd wrapped it for us to take away. Almost grabbed dinner here,... More

We were told by a local resident that this is the best place for seafood in the area. It's literally a shack beside the ferry dock in Tiverton, with a few tables and chairs. My goodness the food was very tasty. I ordered the fish cakes with baked beans while my honey decided to play it safe with just a... More

Come for the milkshakes.(I'm an addict) Not the food. Though it is very helpful when waiting for the ferry. Always willing to help:)

Shack is the best word to describe Cory's for that's what it is. No inside seating, a few tables outside with plastic chairs and oilcloth table covers, but oh my the food is simply great.. Simple stuff, mostly seafoods, but hotdogs and hamburgers also. I had one of the best grilled cheese and bacon sandwich I've ever had. The secret?... More

We found the food and service to be very good. The sandwiches were cooked perfectly and delicious. It is a great place to sit and watch the marina and the ferry going in and out.

We ate here and it just wasn't worth it. Its funny... she wasn't busy at all... yet, she gives you a number... and then makes a point of calling your number. Like who else was there? My seafood chowder wasn't my style.. thin with random pieces of seafood. Not very flavorful. My son's lobster roll didn't seem fresh. We didn't... More

We ate here out of total convenience (waiting for one of our whale watching tours) and I'm so glad we did! The scallops were absolutely delicious. It was so good, my husband and I came back for a lobster roll after whale watching - and it was the best we had on our trip - and we sampled many! This... More

We ate hear before our Whale Watching Cruise. It's just a little place and we walked up thinking this is going to be great or awful! Well what a treat! We all felt it was fantastic from the Grilled Cheese to the Lobster Rolls and Lobster Cakes....fresh, tasty and good value!
