Waterfront Restaurants in RI


It is officially a balmy 43 degrees and the sun is shining bright!  Spring is finally making an appearance…sort of.  Nevertheless, we know following on springs heels is always summer.  The season of longer and warmer days.  Being a Rhode Island local and a year rounder as I like to call myself…I have had the privilege of experiencing many different waterfront restaurants in RI.  It is important to note that there are many types of waterfront restaurants in Rhode Island and it is best to know what you are looking for before you choose one.  Firstly, I will provide you with some general types.

Waterfront Restaurants in RI:

  • Your basic clam cake and chowda shack

  • And so on…countless waterfront restaurants in RI!

Beach side dining in Rhode Island has many advantages.  The obvious one being the proximity to the ocean which affords restaurants the ability to serve up the freshest seafood in various manners.  I say this because you can enjoy some local  raw oysters and clams at the raw bar of the Matunuck Oyster Bar in East Matunuck or try a batch of clam cakes from Aunt Carries in Narragansett.  Whatever your taste may be you will certainly enjoy waterfront restaurants in RI.  Apart from the seafood it is also important to consider the local geographic area you are looking for.  Many of our local regions offer bars and restaurants on or near the ocean.
