No visit to seaside Narragansett is complete without a meal at one of the area’s famous seafood restaurants. Coastal Rhode Island is known for its fresh seafood, pulled right from the waters of nearby Cape Cod and the Gulf of Maine. Seafood restaurants abound in this coast beach town, so we’re here to help you find freshest, tastiest options with the best view. Here are our top recommendations for your next visit to South County.
George’s of Galilee
250 Sand Hill Cove Road | (401) 783-2306
Enjoy the classic waterfront dining experience at George’s while you wait for the ferry out to Block Island. With everything from steamed lobster and fried clams to stuffed quahogs and baked stuffed flounder, George’s offers many different classic seafood preparations. We recommend the clam cakes, a Rhode Island favorite that has been served at George’s since the beginning in 1948.
Coast Guard House
40 Ocean Road | (401) 789-0700
Located in a historic, well, coast guard house, this restaurant is a Narragansett landmark. Fortunately, it also serves a variety of delicious seafood. Try the fish and chips from the Gulf of Maine or go big and order a seafood tower, including littleneck clams, oysters on the half shell, and shell-on jumbo prawns, from the raw bar.
1208 Ocean Road | (401) 363-9820
Of course, we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you about the great seafood that Chef Basil Yu is turning out at our signature on-site restaurant, Chair 5. His take on a classic lobster roll, with tarragon-pistachio pesto on a potato roll, comes with salt and vinegar kettle chips and is sure to impress. Try it at newly-launched brunch, along with the build-your-own bloody bar.
