Excellant food and service. It is best to go after the theater crowd has left for the show, otherwise it is very crowded and noisy. After the show is over in theTheater there is a Cabaret on Friday/Saturday evening

Had lunch before the theatre's matinee. Service was prompt and efficient and we had plenty of time before the show. All four food items ordered by us were plentiful, very good and enjoyed by all. Afterwards, a walk through their beautiful gardens.

This spot isn't just for pre-theatre dining. A best kept secret in South County I recommend heading here when you want to skip the insanity if Narragansett. The food is really 3.5 stars bit the service, and location makes this a 4 star. Don't go...More
