The main Blounts is in Warren but this one is in East Providence in what was once Crescent Park. Good clam shack selection plus more. And then take a ride on the carousel.

We went to Blount CS a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Food was excellent, including the cornbake chowder. Surrounding are very nice. To top it off, a vintage car meet up was happening in the park nearby.

This campy East Bay landmark in Riverside RI (aka southern East Prividence) has all the Clam Shack ambience Rhode Islanders look for further south at the west shore beaches like Scarborough, Matunuck and Narragansett! But it’s minutes from most of the places where everyone in...More

We love eating at this local clam shack in the summer months. A great family spot at the old Crescent Park carousel in Riverside, which also features a park across the street overlooking the bay.
