Looking for a great seafood lunch in Bristol Rhode Island, more casual than fancy.

    Quito's. Hands down. And it is super casual.

      Absolutely. Grerat seafood and great location on the harbor. Sit outside if at all possible

      Another vote for Quito's:

        Another great lunch spot in Bristol is The Beehive. It's not seafood, but it's amazing! Great burgers and pizza, there's always something a little different on the menu and the produce is as local and fresh as it gets. It's right near Quito's, maybe stop there for dessert and coffee after lunch!

          Ditto for Quito's... Perhaps the best "clamshack" in all of RI....

            quito's is great. anyone know what is going into the old belvdere hotel space on hope st? i know they put new apartments from the 2nd floor up but i was told a couple of years ago a restaurant from Providence was moving in there and right now it is still empty.

              Thanks I dont usually eat much fried stuff but Clams are one of my favorite. I listened to someone else once and went to Flo's It sucked bad the worst fried stuff I have eaten but I will try Quintos.

                We ate at Quito's and we both had a lobster roll. Maybe it was an off day - 98 degrees - but they were very fishy tasting and very small for $17.95. I get that, "you get what you pay for" and I would pay more for value and quality but I just wasn't feeling it at Quito's. Fried food seemed to be what the crowds were eating.

                  That's disappointing. Can't say I've ever had a lobster roll there. My favorite dishes are ones that incorporate a variety of seafood - the seafood stew, seafood casserole, and the seafood medley with the fra diavalo over linguini are all incredibly tasty. But, to be fair, none of those are dishes I would want to eat for lunch on a 98 degree day!!
