Local favorite Benny’s Clam Shack opened their second South County location in Narragansett! After a successful first year of business at their Wakefield location, owner Dave Thomas jumped at the opportunity to open a second location near the water. “I’ve always wanted a place down by the water, and this place fit exactly what I was looking for: small and quaint.”

The Narragansett location’s menu will be similar to the one in Wakefield, serving customer favorites like clam cakes, chowder, and stuffies, along with a variety of other fresh seafood dishes, burgers and hot dogs, and breakfast items. The new restaurant will be open year round, and offers plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. They are conveniently located at the corner of Point Judith Road and Sand Hill Cove Road, making them the perfect place to stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner on your way to/from the beach.
Benny’s Clam Shack will be offering a number of grand opening specials, including 99 cent wieners daily from 11am-Noon for the entire month of August and a $1.99 breakfast special (2 eggs, home fries, and toast) starting August 9th. They will also have pizza and calzone specials.
“My vision is to put a few more of these around the surrounding areas. I know with the great chowder and clam cakes that we serve, plus all of the other great, fresh seafood it’s a win-win for any community. My true love is seafood, and I put together one of the best chowders and stuffies known in this state, but none of this would be possible without my awesome staff.”
The Southern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce held an official ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Benny’s Clam Shack’s second location on Thursday, August 8th.
