Classic Narragansett Seafood Restaurants to Enjoy

Sure, you found a really cool attraction and a beautiful Narragansett park. There are plenty of places for the kids to play and you love the ambiance of the town. But you know what always wins out? The seafood!

You have to take inventory of the top Narragansett restaurants for seafood, from the beautiful dockside of Champlin’s to the epic and massive servings over at Iggy’s. Narragansett is a small town with a wide selection of summer vacation rentals, but it is exceptional for its wide assortment of seafood restaurants. Below we cover our favorite five places to eat near Narragansett and in the town proper.

Narragansett seafood restaurants

Champlin’s Seafood Deck

Champlin’s has the fortunate distinction of sitting right at the entrance to Galilee Harbor, near some of Rhode Island’s best beaches. The largest fishing fleet crosses the front of the restaurant every day, delivering some top-notch seafood right to the kitchen.

And the restaurant certainly takes advantage of it. There is a huge raw bar, with jumbo shrimp, crab legs, local hardshell clams, local oysters, and plenty more depending on the season. The raw bar is the ideal way to see and experience the line-up of Rhode Island seafood prepared in the best ways possible.

Champlin’s is ideal for families, with its cool-and-casual atmosphere, and self-serve approach.

George’s of Galilee

The massive waterside fish house of George’s is a real historic attraction, whether you order anything or not! The restaurant sits in a grand building, serving the community for generations. Not only does it host community functions on a regular basis, but the house is filled day to night with eager and excited locals and tourists.

The main dining room is separate from the outdoor deck, but they offer two very different “versions” of authentic northeastern seafood. The main dining hall is gorgeous and romantic, while the outdoor patio is ideal for families. Everyone gets the same menu of clam cakes and chowder, crab, lobster, pasts, and a raw bar.

Iggy’s Doughboys

This charming and casual stop is a change of pace from George’s or Champlin’s. This traditional sandwich eatery excels with affordable selections of clam cakes and chowder, fried scallops, lobster rolls, and even burgers. Grab a mushroom burger or the local fish of the day sandwich in a warm and welcoming eatery.

Coast Guard House

The Coast Guard House is soaked in some fascinating waterside history. Since the late 1800’s, the site has stood as a testament to the US Coast Guard. Its solid granite and high height atop the rocks made it a fixture for decades. In the late 1970’s, the restaurant underwent a huge transformation from era-defining coast guard house to a famous restaurant on the water.

Another massive overhaul following Hurricane Sandy rejuvenated this comm. Unity staple. It features elite seafood dishes, like the Spanish Octopus, Mussels, the Salmon Club, the Lobster Roll, and the Mafadle pasta. There are even options for vegetarians, such as the roasted squash and baby cauliflower Harvest Bowl.

Like Rhode Island tradition, the Coast Guard House also features its own raw bar. It features jumbo shrimp cocktails, oysters, littlenecks, and mignonette or cocktail sauce.

Monahans Clam Shack

If you scanned the above restaurants on the lookout for the word “clam,” you have finally found the right place. Monahan’s is the clam shack by the sea; a cozy lunch-focused escape for fans of minced clams and panko bread crumbs, jumbo lump crab cakes, and the fattest fries in the state. Monahan’s has a very endearing and family-friendly atmosphere for anyone seeking simple and affordable seafood.
