Good eats near Weekapaug with kids

We are visiting Weekapaug over july 4th week. Looking for casual, fun, good local food for extended family which includes 6 and 8 year old. Can't be all deep fried goodness as some in group are healthy. Any recommendations??

  1. Close to Weekapaug I would suggest the Haversham Tavern. It's casual and family friendly, but will be packed if there's a Bruins game. There's also the Sea Goose in the Spindrift Plaza on Rte. 1. It recently opened and I haven't tried it yet, but have heard good things. Owned by the same couple, is the Cooked Goose on Watch Hill Road which serves a nice breakfast and lunch. Walk to the Weekapaug Innlet for coffee, ice cream, candy, etc. Venice on Rte 1A has $1 oysters every day from 4-6 and a spectacular view from the 3rd floor.

    1. Vetrano's is a good, basic Italian restaurant on route 1 with tasty food and reasonable prices. Not special, atmospherically, but it is dependable, ( including some seafood) has a varied menu. Salad is included. There could be quite a wait for a table, but you might luck out. It's sister place Vittorias, in Dunn's Corners,, is a scaled down version, (order at the counter and they will bring to the table) specializing in their pizza and some of the same menu items as Vetrano's. And...they deliver. Shelter Harbor Inn might work, though a bit pricey ( pretty sure there is a children's menu). . It is lovely, relaxing, and has pretty grounds that might occupy your children as it has a climbing apparatus. Someone else mentioned Haversham Tavern, which is a good choice as well.
