The food—especially the Rhode Island clam chowder—is consistently great, the price is right, and you won't feel like a tourist at this local favorite. Catch ocean breezes on the patio, or in stormy weather, sit at the bar and watch breakers roll in 30 feet away. The menu and service are unpretentious; stop in for a grilled tuna or chicken sandwich at lunch, or try more ambitious fare at dinner like Portuguese mussels linguica or steak au poivre. The kitchen brings
its talent for reliability and quality to Payne's Dock, where it runs the Burger Bar at lunch and dinner during boating season.
