Narragansett/Scarborough Beach RI area recommendations?

Will be spending a weeks vacation near Scarborough beach. Any recommendations for breakfast/lunch/dinner? Looking for anything from clam shacks to white table cloth.

  1. Matunck Oyster Bar for lunch or dinner and if you are feeling adventurous, the Ocean Mist for breakfast.


      1. We've been enjoying Trio at the Pier for dinner. Brickley's, of course, for ice cream. If you enjoy Cajun food, you could try a casual Friday night dinner at the Bluebird Cafe in Wakefield. The Mews, also in Wakefield, for a burger and a great draft beer. Second the Matunuck Oyster Bar for lunch or dinner. We've found Crazy Burger to be hit or miss lately. Basil's in Narragansett for traditional "fancy" French if you're moved that way during a weeklong beach vacation. Although we have always loved Spain, and have heard great things lately, the last couple of times we went we were underwhelmed. Maybe it was an off-season thing and they're on their game in the summer.

        Avoid Iggy's. And our last two (last ever) visits to Monaghan's at the Pier were also horrible. YMMV.

          I like the pizza and calzones at the Mews.
