Westerly, RI

I will be spending this coming weekend (10/7) in Westerly RI and would like recommendations for lunch and dinner. I'm by myself so I usually like to sit at the bar or by a window. How's the Andrea Hotel's dining? I love seafood but any cuisine except: chinese, japanese, mexican. Thanx in advance fellow hounds! Nancy

  1. I'm a big fan of the Up River Cafe, google it for menus.

      I definitely second The Up River Cafe ( They have a great bar with a large window overlooking the river. Their food is great, and the service is always attentive. Make sure to ask about their specials (if they don't mention them ... although they always do!) We've always found their specials to be wonderful.

        Went to Up River Cafe and had delicious Lobster and Pumpkin bisque!! Never would have thought of that combination!! Thank you so much for the suggestion!

      2. There is a great place called Guytannos in a strip mall on Frankilin street. Same mall as the Registry, a Curves and a Subway among other things. The food is outstanding and the bar is a friendly place that looks into the kitchen. "whatsinwesterly" is a good site to check out menus and hours.

        1. I've never heard anything good about the Andrea's food. I would check out Dylan, Up River, Guytannos in Westerly. There's a place on the bridge right near Up River that isn't bad. They have a lounge where you can eat at the bar. Food was decent but not amazing. Water St. Cafe in Stonington is worth the 15 minute drive.

            If going to Stonington consider Skipper's Dock further down the street on the right. Good food and great location.

          2. The Shelter Harbor Inn on Route 1 at the eastern end of town offers a very pleasant and intimate bar, good window seating and great food. Their web-site is
            and it shows all menus.

            1. I think the place referenced on the bridge is the Prime Time Cafe, which is great.
