Looking to celebrate our birthdays my wife and I found this quaint little place on the shores of Greenwich Bay. It was a gorgeous Sunday and we opted to sit out on the deck overlooking the adjacent marina. As we watched the boats of all sizes and types come and go, we enjoyed excellent cocktails. We started with white chowder (or chowdah as we pronounce it in RI) and raw little neck clams. The chowder was thick and tasty and the little necks were served with an excellent sauce over shaved ice. My wife ordered a lobster salad sandwich that was so big and chunky she could not finish it, so of course I helped. I opted for the chicken parmesan and was not disappointed. It was tasty with an zesty tomato sauce. Perhaps the best part was when the bill came that this repast was at a reasonable price considering the quality of the food and service. Definitely worth a visit for either the food, or the view, or the value, or all of the above.

We should know better than to order seafood at a waterfront restaurant, as it is often a lackluster experience, and Timmy's is no exception. However, we were near the beach in Warwick, wanted to sit dockside at an outdoor table and had a yen for seafood.
Being a Monday evening, the place was nearly empty, so seating us outside was no problem. The outside deck has a very pretty view of the marina and the vibe of the staff was casual and friendly. Mrs. Sitty ordered a vodka martini, which came perfectly dry. It was accompanied by a cold sidecar carafe of about 1/2 a drink more, which was a nice touch. On to the seafood......
The Manhattan Clam Chowder had little in common with its' name, containing no detectable clams, little broth and consisted of mostly thick potato chunks. The steamed mussels in butter and garlic were somewhat edible, but ruined by the thick, oily, yellow and extremely salty "broth" that began to congeal in the bowl as they cooled down. The fried combo of shrimp and whole belly clams was a miss, as breading overtook the poor critters inside. The clams were quite small, overcooked and the super-salty fried covering disguised any taste they may have had before entering the deep fryer. The smallish shrimp were unnecessarily butterflied, perhaps to give an illusion of size. They suffered the same sorry fate as the clams. The broiled scallops were absolutely terrible. Covered in about an inch thick of over-browned and over-salted bread crumb scab, the casserole of scallops(?) actually steamed underneath. They were flavorless cylinders of white sea flesh, inexplicably ruined and one of the worst-prepared scallop dishes we have ever encountered.
As we ate, small parties of locals filtered in and out and we noticed that they stuck to fare that Timmy's probably does much better with, like burgers and such. We will definitely come back sometime, but will stick to their excellent cocktails and "pub grub", which is difficult to do too badly. The burgers did look and smell great!

Looking for a quick lunch before a long afternoon memorial service for an old friend, we were directed here to Timmy's. Right on the wharf, many boats in April were still out on the hard. But the restaurant was percolating! I had one of the worlds great burgers and my wife brought home most of her Chicken Marsala for the next day (It was delicious.) Crab cakes had more potato than crab, but the chowder was great. Only sorry we had to be so rushed and couldn't really enjoy this wonderful place.

Ate there after a snow storm. Apparently the two owners took care of us, from taking our orders to serving us. Really enjoyed the stuff shrimp. My son got two orders of shrimp cocktail as his dinner. It's a shame that he was charged full price for the 2nd one, even though it had no cocktail sauce or lemon. And the price for them was a little high compare to other restaurants in the area. Overall it was a very nice place & the owners very really nice & we really enjoyed the place & would return there if ever back in Warwick.

We had dinner with a friend and really were happy we picked The Waterfront. The stuffed mushrooms were good and the spinach dip was great. When you order two entrees, they offer you a free bottle of wine. This is a special for the winter and is a great deal. My husband had the baked stuffed shrimp, our friend had the baked scrod, and I had the lobster mac and cheese. All three were very good, served hot and plentiful. In fact half the scrod went home along with two thirds of the mac and cheese! We will definitely going back!
