I’ve tried all of the Galilee restaurants this summer and this is my least favorite one. We got calamari as our appetizer, I got fish and chips, and my boyfriend got a burger. The calamari was good but I barely touched the fish. It wasn’t...More

You know what they say, if you have to ask you can’t afford it. The $35 lobster roll was okay but definitely not great and not worth the price. I was too flabbergasted to say I had changed my mind when I realized the price.More

Hi I noticed you mentioned a lobster roll for $35, but we don't offer a lobster roll for that price. All lobster is market price. The lobster dinner is $27.50 the lobster roll here is only $18.95 and the hot lobster roll is 22.95. Please...More

We were in a large group but had no trouble getting a table. The service wasn't fast but the meal was very good. Good variety and not too expensive.

Great restaurant to patronize while you wait for your ferry to Block Island. Fresh oysters and very good clam chowder. Fish (flounder) and chips were delicious. Excellent cole slaw! Melissa was a great server.

This place could drop the hammer price-wise since it is so convenient for tourists going to the ferry...but it does not. The food was good, the service was nice, and the prices were reasonable. I half expected to be bludgeoned seeing as this was across...More

The lobster roll was terrible. The lobster was overcooked and very chewy and it tasted like it had sat and soaked in butter for a long time before I ate it. The color of the lobster indicated as much too. The bread was soggy and...More
