Why do Rhode Islanders consider baked stuffed seafood gourmet. They love to throw a wad of butter soaked bread crumbs on everything. This menu could stand some serious creativity like maybe a chef who’s lived elsewhere and tried some more interesting modern food ideas. The...More

We went there to have seafood as we were told it was a nice atmosphere and reasonable pricing , However as we started to order, the waiter announced that OPRAH ate all the lobsters, so we had to pass on that meal

Beautiful location and great food. Staff is wonderful. I've had several parties here (anniversary, graduation, class reunion) and always had a great time. Also its a nice spot for a small quiet dinner on the water. Brunch is excellent with a huge selection.

The local tradition is to be closed on Mondays. So when looking for a place to have lunch the options are limited. The WT has a rather traditional menu but the chowder was good and the view of Barrington River is quite nice.

Literally on the water, this is a fine place for a seafood dinner. Spacious dining room, friendly atmosphere. Waitstaff helpful and cooperative. Coctails generous in size. Very large seafood menu...and of course the obligatory steaks and meat dishes, Italian fare, etc. Moderate cost. $150 for...More

Although I have been here on Easter throughout the years, I do not know the actually price this year. My guess would be 20-30 per person. Food is always good! Be prepared for the place to be packed!
