I booked the "Towers" room for 2 nights in early September. The owner said over the phone that this was their best room with a terrace. When I arrived I was disappointed because the inn is on a very busy road, the front desk had a jar of things for the guests like dental floss, toothpaste and razors (not a... More

We were seated immediately in a cute cozy spot . Our waitress Nicole came right over and brought glasses for the wine we... More

The Bistro has a wraparound porch that is an amazing slice of Narragansett heaven, with walker, runners, travelers of all sorts strolling by, and yet it's quiet and very unpretentious. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the menu choices all sounded so good that it was tough to choose. I had the shrimp stir fry, we also shared... More

I was there back in 2013 when it was Grinnell Inn. Not sure what's changed since then, but at that time we were really pleased with experience. Room was clean, freshly renovated and had anything you need. Breakfast (included) was very very good. The beach is pretty close (5-7 min walking). Hotel had parking. I would say this is for... More

Very good food and laid back atmosphere. I had the Shrimp risotto and my girlfriend had the stir fry. Both were very good. I highly recommend the grapefruit lemonade. It's amazing. Menu is somewhat smaller/ limited. You also can't just walk in. You need to make reservations.

Thank you for your kind review of our bistro. I would like to correct one thing. You can just walk in. We definitely appreciate and encourage reservation but if there is a table available anyone is welcome to it. More

Mothers Day brunch was delicious, excellent service, nice atmosphere. If they continue doing breakfast/brunch will definitely be a regular. Different menu, not your bacon and eggs diner menu. Very nice flare, very good portions.

Perhaps because this endeavor is a gourmet off-shoot of the ever popular Crazy Burger just a couple of streets over. Same great quality of food, friendly staff and BYOB, in a more upscale environment. Loved the bisques, and the entrees (a short-rib special and the Cauliflower Chili sauce entree on the menu). Looking forward to returning and trying a few... More

The most fresh food I've had in ages. Wait staff are exceptional as well! Shrimp Risotto last time, yet I usually get the Arugula & Spinach Salad with beets, goat cheese and candied walnuts with the PISTACHIO Vinaigrette which I wish they would bottle and sell!

Visited for dinner last night with another couple. the short story: friendly staff, good food. The steak and potatoes exceeded expectations, the chili cauliflower was outstanding. All four of us would endorse B&B. It is BYBO, but no worries, a decent package store is just down the way. We were a party of 4 and they took a reservation, which... More

Open only a couple of months, this is not a crowded restaurant. Right now it is a hidden gem. The menu is limited and a bit pricy, but the food is very well prepared and presented. The staff is very helpful. The salads are large enough to split. The shrimp cake in a rolled avocado was delicious. Flounder was perfectly... More
