We go here for lunch all the time in the summer. Nothing fancy. Sit outside with pretty views of the ocean. Reasonably priced.

Food is average, but view is awesome. Just know you are paying a "view tax" for your meal. Nothing is awful, nothing is awesome. Just know it going up the stairs.

We chose this restaurant thinking it was still Hammerhead Grill. When we arrived, we noticed the name change but decided to give them a chance. They seem to be understaffed since half their tables were empty, yet there was a 20 minute wait. We requested to sit inside but they sat us outside. That ended up being ok because the... More

My wife and I went for dinner here and while we looked for the Hammerhead Grill did not see it as it is now known as 1230 Ocean Bistro. We sat on the deck overlooking the ocean and this may have been the best of many great views we had when we ate outside in Narragansett. I had the Ahi... More

A New England beach restaurant with all of the trimmings. Trimmings that is of lobster salad and lobster rolls, clam chowder, corn chowder, sometimes both in the same delicious bowl. Regular bowls and if you'd like extra large ones. College age kids (at least when I was there) as courteous servers. We ate inside, and upstairs, a longish, but not... More

When nine Harleys pull into your lot, and 14 people in leather walk in your door, it would be understandable for restaurant management to be caught a little off-balance. Not so for this team. They scrambled and immediately arranged tables for our group, inside in AC, with the best view of Block Island Sound. Quick service for beverages and lunch... More

My fiancée and I try to get out to Narragansett a few times a year and the Hammerhead is always on our to do list. We've eaten here probably a dozen times and have never been disappointed! The food is always great, the blood Mary's are always perfect, and the view is to die for!!

Had a late- summer breakfast on the outdoor deck. Food fine, although they need to get more serious about coffee--pretty weak stuff for a Seattle visitor! They were short-staffed because it was at the very end of the season, but after apologizing for that fact, both young servers hustled and were just so nice. Will definitely return on our next...

The view is stunning, probably the best I've seen in Rhode Island. We ordered clam cakes and chowder to start which were chock full of clams and delicious, as was everything else fallowing. But what really made the meal was the service from our waitress, Sara. She was wonderful, very knowledgeable not only about the menu, but what to see... More
