Fodor's Review

Family owned for four generations, this iconic Point Judith dining hall has been a must for Rhode Islanders every summer since it opened in 1920. Its peerless location and unpretentious atmosphere are the main draws, along with comfortable favorites like clam cakes, steamers, and fish-and-chips. For a true native experience, try the Rhode Island Shore Dinner, an orgy of seafood served in several courses. The clam chowder comes three ways: red, white, and clear. Lobster is used many dishes, including a tasty BLT. Many of the recipes for namesake Carrie Cooper's pies are still in use, and some folks have been known to drive more than an hour just for the Indian pudding, a traditional dessert made with cornmeal, molasses, and spices. Eat in the 125-seat dining hall or order at the take-out window and head to the picnic tables across the street, although the lines for both can get pretty long in the thick of summer. The restaurant is BYOB.

Delicious home-cooking right on the water

We live in RI and always make it a point to go to Aunt Carrie's a few times a year. We've had the clam cakes, chock full of clams, lobster, which is always sweet and delicious, and the baked fish. The mashed potatoes are wonderful, too. Their breads and pies are all homemade and yummy, so make sure you save room for them, too!
