Restaurants in Jamestown, RI
Where should we eat dinner in Jamestown?
Not too many choices in Jamestown but I also like Tricia's (the fresh fish sandwich of the day, usually bluefish, is always delicious). The tiki bar out back is fun. Simpatico, while beautiful, always seems a bit more stuffier to me. Also more spendy for, what I have heard, is just ok Italian food.
A neat alternative is pizza night at the Village Hearth bakery (Sunday nights). It's run by a wonderful couple, the guy who is 1st generation Italian and a true artisan. If you are not there for Sunday night, it is still a must-try for their freshly-baked wares. My favorite food-related stop in Jamestown and/or Newport.
Haven't been down in Rhody yet this season but I can't imagine things have changed much in Jamestown (I live in Boston now). We Rhode Islanders tend not to like change! LOL!
In addition to Tricia's and Village Hearth, we've enjoyed the views and (ok) food at the Boat House in Tiverton, RI. The food is nothing to write home about but the location is great. If Bristol is not too far for you, there are good options there, too (DeWolfe Tavern, Persimmon).
are you driving or ferrying? if you stay til end of fest, it will be 9-930 by the time you get back to Jamestown. if you take water taxi to Old Port (by the Mooring) you will have many more options

This is great--thanks! We just found out that the wonderful woman who owns the B&B we have been staying at for many years has retired--she is in her 90's! So we are searching for digs and it's been very hard. We may look further away in the Tiverton or Bristol area. Happy to avoid the crowds in Newport and drive in to the festival--if we can get some good dinners.
