Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A very hip joint. The morning menu includes eggs fixed in omelettes and sandwiches, crepes, breakfast pizza and pancakes. They also have fresh-squeezed juice combos, like pear-ginger-apple, or orange-pineapple ($1.50-$2.50). For dinner, what else? burgers! Don't eat meat? No problem (Totally nuts burger, hummabouli burger) - lots of choices for vegetarians, vegans. Other burgers include the jerky chicken burgers, quirky Cajun burgers, and a wild and crazy mushroom burger. Also entertaining is the article posted on the bulletin board from the Wall Street Journal on the Crazy Burger Cafe and the attempts by the Alliance for the Mentally Ill of Rho...Read More

My first experience with a Spanish restaurant and I was not dissapointed. An elegant restaurant with a nice bar that was situated on the beach on Ocean Drive just South of Scarborough State Beach.

Service was great! I had the paella - which is a saffron rice dish with seafood. It was incredible! I only wish there was a restaurant like this near us!

Pay a small fee to park in the huge lot, and you have access to this large and popular beach located on Ocean Drive, just South of the town of Narragansett. This well-kept beach is good for families with lots to do - fly kites on the lawn overlooking the beach, swim in the ocean (no big waves), play with some of the hundreds of other kids around...

Newport is about half an hour away from Narragansett. We went into Newport to see the Tall Ships event in early July. We saw over a dozen tall ships from as far away as Russia and Europe! It was a beautiful setting!

I understand the Tall Ships event in Boston the next week was mobbed. Many of the same ships were in Newport. And while the crowds were sometimes large, it was easy to navigate with 4 small children and 3 adults.

Galilee is a small fishing port located on Point Judith, South of Narragansett. It features little in the way of attractions, but is a great place to soak in the atmosphere of an authentic New England fishing hamlet.

It is also a great place to pick up some lobstahs or clams right off the boat at great prices.

Point Judith is also the place to catch the Block Island Ferry, should you desire to day trip out to Block Island.
