      Fall River has good Portugese food O-Gils, Academica try the portugese steak at both. upgrade to the sirloin at both if available. Try uglyAmerican for a good Burger, also in Fall River on new boston rd.

    2. there is a new restaurant on east main road called fieldstones (the old Portsmouth oyster bar ) there is also 15 Point road right on the water. about 10 minutes from there off of 24 is the Boathouse beautiful location great food also on the water in Tiverton.

          Just had to comment on Fieldstones. My husband and I go there all the time. We have been waiting for a decent place to open up in portsmouth forever. Its a great place for a beer and a burger. nice staff, cozy atmpsohere, good food. I really cant complain...apparently neither can any other locals, the place is always packed!
