  • I can remember my parents taking us kids for a ride there on a Sunday afternoon and getting bowls of chowder and a bag of clam cakes from the take out window and then we'd sit there on the car overlooking the Block Island Sound and watch the Fishing boats come in

      If you head to Narragansett, RI and go all the way out to the little port called Galilee, you’ll find a quaint little fishing village with lots of seafood markets, both wholesale and retail, the Block Island Ferry dock where travelers line up several times a day to take the Ferry ride from Galilee to Block Island, gift shops, a small local hotel and a few local eateries. All the way to the end, you’ll find a restaurant that was and is a Rhode Island landmark, called George’s of Galilee.

      we’d sit there on the car overlooking the Block Island Sound and watch the Fishing boats come in. Seagulls are screeching overhead; the combined smell of salt air and fish fill the air. We’d wave to the fisherman, some of whom had been out for days and others, just for the day and they’d wave back. Sometimes the captain in the wheelhouse would blow his horn for us or ring the ship’s bell.

      The place has always been special to me because of these memories from my childhood but even now as an adult, whenever I get home to Rhode Island, we always make a point of spending an afternoon and evening there.

      We sometimes spend the afternoon on the beach, just getting ...


      • some rays and maybe grabbing a Del’s Frozen Lemonade off the truck but sooner or later, we head over to George’s.

        Although at times we’ve gone inside the restaurant to celebrate a family event, be it a birthday, an anniversary or an engagement party, we mostly love dining out on the upstairs deck overlooking the scenic fishing village and the Salty Brine State Beach.

        What do we like to eat here? Silly question! Seafood of course! It’s top notch and fresh as can be. Nobody should come to Rhode Island without sampling some Rhode Island Clam cakes and “Chowda”. Usually when we take to George’s deck side, we start off with “Stuffies” and George’s does them best! “Stuffies” are Stuffed Clams that are

        stuffed with breadcrumbs and clams and all sorts of herbs and spices. Then we might move on to Buffalo Shrimp.

        Usually when we spend an afternoon there like this, we just graze and order several small things and share them rather than full dinners. It’s so nice to be “home” which is what it feels like when you’re originally from New England and you go to a scenic little fishing village like this. You don’t find places like this in Florida!

        There’s nothing quite like sitting out on the outside deck when the fishing boats come in on a warm summer evening in New England watching the sun go down, and sipping a few cold beers, eating some of the tastiest seafood in all of Rhode Island.
