A special treat in Portsmouth Rhode Island along the Sakonnet River. Busy, but not crowded, 15 Point offers casual upscale dining with an enchanting moonlit river view. A traditional menu, strongly influenced by the local bounty (especially from the sea), pleases most everyone and house specialties are an ever-changing eclectic delight of innovative and contemporary dishes. Once inside you will be entranced by the view of the Sakonnet River which leads out to the ocean beyond through the panorama of windows. While enjoying Al Fresco dining on our deck, across the river you will occasionally notice the local fishing boats as they make their way to the Tiverton fish market. If you're lucky enough, you might even catch one of the local lobstermen heading out to tend his lobster traps in Mount Hope Bay!
We enjoyed our experience at Fifteen Point. We started with the white clam chowder. The clams were tender but there was too much tarragon in the soup. The chowder did not need that much. I had a dish called Mount Hope Seafood which had 2 large shrimp, 2 sea scallops and a healthy portion of lobster meat over a flaky pastry with a white cream sauce. It was really nicely prepared as the seafood was tender. It came with roasted fingerling potatoes and a delicious spaghetti squash/tomato veggie. You have a nice view of a river but they have to do something about the dumpsters right in front of your line of sight by a closed bridge. Service was outstanding and all aimed to please.
Tip: Make reservations as the dining area is not that large.

This bakery has wonderful pastries and pies. The prices are reasonable and service is great! They have chourco and meat kinishes that are really great and so much more. Once you walk in and look at the stuff they have to offer you really can't walk out without a lot of food!

You usually can find parking in front. You pull up thinking it is a quaint little coffee shop, but it is so much more. Clutter and crafty and laid back, it is the most interesting coffee shop in the state. GET THERE EARLY! The pastry and snacks are so good, but once the stock runs out it is not replenished. The staff is great and varied. The line can be long. That is a great opportunity to look through all the flyers, advertisements ,brochures, and business cards. It is an interesting place with fantastic products. I had shakes, cold drinks, and hot drinks. Go to hang out. It is a great place to chat. You will see Lulu Lemon cladded Pilates moms to Portuguese construction workers, the retired reading books and the young adults talking to each other without cell phones in hand. There is a large bike rack and plenty of seating I am sure they have a bathroom, but didn't use it.

Waterfront table, sunny day, good drink and food choices all set you up for a great lunch. Too bad the food doesn't match up. No real complaints but more disappointment that with just more attention to improving food flavor this would be excellent.
Good drink menu; the martinis were very good. Food ranks average. Lobster rolls not nearly as flavorful as they are in many local places....frozen?
Fish tacos were bland, fish was good, toppings not so much. Chips, home made or not, don't go well with $15 to $20+ sandwiches. One opted for fries, lukewarm and pedestrian.
Overall I get the impression relying on the views is what mgmt. wishes to emphasize; these food quality shortcomings would be easy to address and improve.

It’s difficult to open a Rhode Island guidebook without finding a reference to Gray’s ice cream. Reading other reviews it seems to be something of an institution in the area.
No doubt some of the hype surrounds the number of flavours available – I’m guessing at least forty. I was expecting a diner style ice cream parlour but found a store and a serving hatch. There were a couple of benches at the edge of the car park and restrooms were of the Portaloo variety.
We visited twice during our ten day vacation. First time around we tried the seasonal pumpkin flavour and the much lauded coffee chip – both lovely. On the second visit I ordered ginger and discovered I’d been given coconut – perhaps my N Irish accent was to blame. In truth the coconut ice cream was quite nondescript.
The list of flavours available is impressive but I get the feeling that nostalgia is the secret ingredient in Gray’s success. Oh, for the UK visitors a 'box' is what we might call a 'tub'.

We were in Fall River on Columbus Day weekend to do the Lizzie Borden House tour and stopped at Patti's for lunch afterward. We learned about the restaurant on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and believe me, their segment does not do it justice.
We had five of us for lunch, four adults and our 11 year old son and we were all over the menu. I had the 12 pierogi platter with butter, onions and bacon (and yes I ate them all), My wife had a platter with pierogis, kielbasa and a golumki (stuffed cabbage). Our 11 year old had the pierogi minis wrapped in bacon and the other 2 adults in the group split a platter of 12 assorted pierogis. Every on raved about their meal. Truth be told, they were better than the pierogis grandma used to make. The homemade kielbasa was lean and tasty but (in my opinion) was light on the smoke.
If you're in Fall River, don't miss this place!

This little gem of a place is becoming our go to place when we are too lazy to cook for ourselves. Great small cozy place with great food. Go early as you won’t be able to find a table at dinner time. It’s been discovered! Need I say more.

The meat pies are a great idea to bring to a party! I know people from outside the area who buy bunches just to freeze for another time because they're not lucky enough to live close by. There is meat, Lebanese (meat with yogurt), chourico, and veggie. Place is usually mobbed because it's so good. I always see customers in the parking lot eating one as soon as they get out of the building.

This restaurant was recommended by a local merchant when we asked for sit down lunch recommendations. We both ordered one of the specials, a lobster roll for $18. It was delicious and included lots of lobster. The restaurant was busy, but the servers were did a great job of managing it all.

This cafe is cute and quaint. The Panins are very good (I had tuna). The cafe dies have many other interesting offerings such as mousska, spanikopta, and quiches. Breakfast is also served, with options such as French toast soufflé and steel cut oatmeal.
The cafe is small, with a total of only 7 tables (for 2 or 3 people each) in addition to a deck (with 6 more tables). They serve lots of different kinds of coffees and teas. The ordering occurs at the counter, and your order is brought to your table. When we were there the entire staff (of perhaps 8-10) were all high school or college age and outnumbered patrons.
Located across from a body of water (wide river) and a busy street, the view is nice. Some people were fishing nearby.
The desserts looked great!
