Staying over night in Misquamicut and looking for a nice place to have a casual but delicious dinner. Fun atmosphere is always a plus. Will go as far as Stonington or Westerly, or any of the small towns in between. Suggestions would be much appreciated.
We enjoy Shelter Harbor Inn, but I wouldn't call it casual or fun. Skipper's is great for a drink, but I couldn't recommend it for a meal. Maria's Seaside Cafe on Atlantic Ave. is very good. We much prefer the bar to the dining room. Depending where you are staying, you may be able to walk there. They also have $1 oysters and cherry stones during the week from 4-6.
There are lots of good restaurants in and around Westerly, but this is probably the closest to the beach area.
