Had a delightful lunch (and went back for dinner) at the Wharf Tavern. Fish and seafood was fresh and plentiful. The service was excellent. This was a casual place for an excellent meal. Would recommend and did go back while we were in the area....More

Beautiful location and great food. Staff is wonderful. I've had several parties here (anniversary, graduation, class reunion) and always had a great time. Also its a nice spot for a small quiet dinner on the water. Brunch is excellent with a huge selection.

The local tradition is to be closed on Mondays. So when looking for a place to have lunch the options are limited. The WT has a rather traditional menu but the chowder was good and the view of Barrington River is quite nice.

Very large seafood menu...and of course the obligatory steaks and meat dishes, Italian fare, etc. Moderate cost. $150 for...More

The Wharf Tavern is brilliantly located on the Warren River with beautiful views of the bay. The atmosphere is wonderful as is the service. The menu is quite diversified and every dish is cooked to perfection.

The Wharf Tavern has been around forever. Forever. Certainly decades, but it feels more like millennia. Unchanging. And it very much feels so. The place is clearly exhausted. On the favorable side of things, the location is as lovely as ever. And, well, thats pretty...More

Although I have been here on Easter throughout the years, I do not know the actually price this year. My guess would be 20-30 per person. Food is always good! Be prepared for the place to be packed!
