REVIEWS OF Champlin's Seafood IN Rhode Island

Barbara Wilson

Had seafood platter and it was enough for two to share and cooked to perfection.

This place is a must and by far my favourite place to come to when I visit Narragansett. First place I come to when I get here. Personal favorite thing to do is order a Narragansett beer or whaler's IPA, with steamed clams, 6 oysters and a couple littleneck clams, clear broth chowda and sweet potato fries. Enjoy the fresh seafood, and amazing sunset as the fishing boats come in and out.

Carlos Rocha

Love their Clam chowder and cakes.

Christopher Gufler

Great food. Fast service. We used to go to Iggy's....

John S

Excellent as usual, nice sweet scallops!!

Karis Vargas

A bit crowded, but service was fast!!! Very good fresh sea food!!! They also have a market place!!

Jesus Gonzalez

Shrimp is farm raised and corn on Cobb was not cooked

Paul Howarth

I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I had so much food I had to take a good amount home. This particular photo does no justice

justin ballou

Always the freshest seafood in Rhode island

Maru Cardona

Great food in a relaxed environment

Brian Bigda

Fun place to hang out and watch the boats in Galilee. Tasty seafood, fun bar, great views.

Areina Fierce

My favorite fast seafood joint in Galilee. Great views, food and staff. And DRINK!

Robert Cordisco

Kerri, Jamie and Jesse are the BEST!

biagio diuccio

The prices are reasonable the portions are good and the food is far better than George's

Larry Bates

Extremely fast service. Great chowder. Large fish portions

Karen Lee

Fun place to sit & watch the boat traffic. Good simple food. Loved my stuffed clams!

Matthew Parker-Jones

Excellent, fresh sea food and lots of variety. Venue is neat with a fun outdoor seating area overlooking the water. Can be a bit pricey (particularly the lobster roles), although that's kind of what you expect walking into a place like this. Worth the visit for the local experience and fresh seafood.

Jessica C

Amazing raw bar, lobster roll, and great beer selection!

Russ Donahue

the lobster was fresh and the bartender was awesome

Michael Hadley

Did not go to Georges. We went to Champlains seafood. It was very good but a little pricey.

Jessica Canning

Well, I didn't like my fish tacos. The clam chowder was split but tasted okay and the clam cakes tasted old. My mom got shrimp and she said they were okay.


The food was pretty good I would have given it five stars but there was a hair in my plate

Steven Denny

Stunning view friendly people

Scott Conlee

Whole bellie clams were great. Another in our party said the fried scallops were overdone

Mel Rios

Great views as the restaurant is located upstairs. Back bar area is perfect for outdoor eating as it overlooks the water. Portions are plentiful. Very clean inside. Adult drinks are on the pricey side but it comes with the location. Fish and chips was very good. Fish batter was light and not over seasoned.

Robert and Nancy Trowsdale

Yummy food and great spot to watch the boats coming and going.

Ruben Ruiz

This place has a fantastic view of the water. The service and food is fantastic. The waitress here had great service. Food came out hot and fast. This resturant is a hot spot to go to in the summertime! Highly recommend to all friends and family!

Rocco Grasso

Maybe they just had a bad day, I was disapointed.

Denis Picard

The clam strips were the best

george tunnicliff

Good food and Fun

Jan French

Went with a friend while on vacation. We shared a platter and had more than enough food. Order at window, get you tray. There is a bar. Nice people.

Ashley Lapierre

The best fish and chips I have ever had! Just a lite coating and not a super fishy taste! Amazing!

edit delete

generous portions, fresh seafood, raw bar, small lively full bar, good views.

cathy washington

The food is pretty good and it had a beautiful View by the water

Dianne Daignault

I participated in a girl's afternoon. The group chose this place. The seating was spacious with plenty of tables in/out door. Not a lot of food choices alternate from sea food to choose from. Very small portions for the prices!!!

Allen Crouch

Freshest seafood I've ever had.

Sally Cooper

Always delicious lots of food for the money

Richard Fu

The seafood here is very reasonable priced with good portion. A triple 1 3/4 lobster dinner is $34.99 in mid-August. Seafood tacos are very delicious too. The restaurant locates just 100 yards away from the Block Island ferry. Its deck offers good view of the bay and the beautiful sunset. Small dogs are allowed here. We are so happy that our family dog can enjoy the meal with us together.

Alex Narodowy

Ordah' ya lahbstah, bring it to ta table, eat ya lahbstah

Lynda King

Awesome views, great food & service

Melvin Charles

Really nice people there

Joseph Lucier

The seafood platter was amazing. It even ended up being 4 meals for my wife and I (dinner for 2 and then breakfast for 2)

Gerard Downing III

Excellent place to have great seafood at a decent price have been going there for years if you are in the area you should definitely stop by

John Amarone

I live in Hamden Connecticut , and I've been going the champlin's for the past 20 years well worth the trip from anywhere.

Jen Kostka

Stunning views and amazing seafood! Compares in quality to some of my favorite seafood spots in Mass. Even got to see a ferry come in. Everyone was nice. Wish our drinks were made better, but we didn’t seem to have the regular bartender.

Karen Boyer

Delicious red chowder, yummy clam cakes and sweet tasting lobster roll!!

Holly Bakes

We ordered 3 standard menu items at Champlins and waited an unreasonable amount of time for our orders. It definitely wasn't worth the wait either. I mean, it's pretty difficult to mess up a grilled cheese, but they managed to do it. The fries & onion rings were soggy. Some of the counter staff members were rude when we inquired about our order when it still wasn't ready after 30+ minutes. I'm generally easy to please and rarely complain, but this was truly an awful dining experience. I'd never go here again.

jonathan bryan

Good seafood and great conversation with my Rhode island in laws


Raw bar items were fresh and delicious. Fries were cold but restaurant was very busy and they were trying to keep up. All the main courses were fresh and hot. Bartender made the best bloody Mary I have had in a long time. Over all a positive experience.

Suzanne McGregor

Asked for hot lobster roll and they did a great job even though it's not on the menu!

Richard Marr

We've been going there for several years now. Absolutely delicious fresh off the boat seafood. I ordered the seafood platter, clams, two pieces of cod, several scallops, and several shrimp all with a very light battered. Also four red skinned potatoes. I could only eat about half. My wife had a hot lobster roll and loved it. You can go down stairs to the retail store and pick your own lobster, which we have done before. The views are awesome too.

Sherry Mims

Great food and prices!

deb mars

Best on the beach!

Alexander Tarnacki

Picked up 2 5+lb. Lobsters. Over 11 lbs total. Great selection of prepared seafood salads. Reasonable prices

Heather Scherick

We loves place! Amazing seafood at reasonable prices. Fresh Fresh Fresh!!

Jacob Riedel

Always great food, quick service for how busy it gets too.

Mike D

Its only 4 stars for 2 reasons.... The drinks are small and over priced, amd the wait is crazy. However you cannot find better off the boat seafood in all of rhode island.

Sharon Henderson

Best and freshest seafood in the area, right on the water. Excellent local vibe. None better.

Brian Hart

Great food great service great prices

debra k

The best in Rhode island.

Paul Council

Line was like 40 mins so u know it was prb worth it! Had the coconut shrimp. Awesome sauce. Fully enjoyable experience...

Claudine Taylor

Always awesome! Fried seafood but not at all greasy.... perfect, just the way I love it!

Daniel Krause

Go every time we are in RI. Definitely a great experience

Jenny Aldrich

The fried calamari, fried scallops, baked scallops, and raw oysters were excellent! We are a very particular when it comes to food. And this place really suprised us how good it was!!

JVD 24

Awful. Wait was forever and the food was overpriced and not very good. Plenty of kids crying and parents too busy to care for them getting drunk on a Tuesday afternoon. A tourist trap to avoid

J Huerta

Good family restart for a quick bite. Atmosphere is loud and fun, right on the water. Typical fried seafood fair. It was yummy, we had a good time

Bob Davis

Great atmosphere, kind people. A little pricey considering the season. Food just ok considering cost.

rj fun

Fresh seafood doesn't get much better

Arthur Descoteaux

I Love that place I go on my Birthday every year for sea food platter

Mark Roddy

You cannot get any fresher seafood period! Love this place. Great views and service. Come here every time I visit. I am a southern man, and you càn't beat the cold water seafood. A must try if you are in the area! You will not be disappointed.

Carla Fernandez

Love this place been here at least 3 times and I'm not even from around here. I visited from Puerto Rico and loved the place. Great lobster, favorite fried shrimp and the oysters!

Scott Nettleton

Fresh seafood. Delicious smoked salmon. Lobsters quahogs muscles rock crabs and oysters. competitively-priced.

Richard Perez Moyet

Best white clam chowder I have ever had in Rhode Island.

Dan Alexander

Service is impeccable here. Drinks r delicious. You cant get fresher seafood at a better price.

Ed Rubinstein

Fabulous.....5 stars for sure!

Tina Costa

Always delicious! The freshest seafood right off the dock. I used to go here with my mom and dad and now I take my kids. Great prices to.

Jaelyn kue

The last time we ate here was 4 1/2 yrs ago when we visited Rhode Island. Love the foods here. This place has great food with awesomely large portions and of course, an awesome view. Champlin's is always a good place for seafood and we always have to stop in. Love it here.

Steven Aucoin

Fresh Seafood.. Great prices

Julianne Van Eps

We only got ice cream at the downstairs shop. Very pricey ($7.50) for a sad one scoop sundae. Staff indifferent. Cash only. Only plus- it's a great spot to watch the boats go by, but that area is public so no need to purchase anything.

Frank Silvia

Love the view, got the steamers and we're excellent and fresh.

Bader Almutairi

Really nice location. Friendly staff and priced right. I recommend the steamed littlenecks for an appetizer and the seafood combo with linguine. That was nice portion with a nice mix of seafood.

Alexander Atkinson

Best fish and chips I’ve ever had.

Philip Crean

Best fish shack in RI

Andrew Brown

It was awful, would never go back

Paul Leonetti

This is THE place to dine when in Narragansett/ Galilee RI. Great food...great service....dockside seating. Great place to enjoy evening seafood while watching the sun set. Expect a long line...about 20 minutes.....entry. Well worth the wait....

David Quebec

The music has to go...The service is ok

Marlene Slominski

OMG Best Lobster not sure why they got a 1 star rating. Def will not be disappointed.

Teresa Cap

Iggys is better

Doug Ouellette

First time there the prices were fair and the food was awesome. The view of the harbor was breath taken. I would definitely be back

Eunice Snay

Love this place. Next to Salty Brine beach and near the ferries to Block Island. Fishing fleet comes and goes by so the seafood served is freshly caught.

Carolyn Cherone

Never disappointed when I go to Champlin's!

Peter Viera

Been twice in 2 weeks and both times the food was excellent and the staff helpful and fun. My dietary requirements didn't faze them at all and the food came out exactly as ordered despite the changes. Go there and try the steamers.

Cheryl Wojnilo

Love this place! Great seafood right on the water. You can watch the Block Island Ferry go in and out while you eat. Great selection and the portions are huge! Perfect beach atmosphere. It does get crowded at dinnertime so we try to go in the early afternoon or later in the evening.

David Pooler

They always have what you need, it's fresh and the price is right. I had to drive down some lobsters, crabs and quahogs to a friend in North Carolina. Champlin's packed it in a container with ice to make it good for 48 hours and I put it in the trunk of my car. My friends loved the Seafood. They've got freshly filleted fish on ice. I highly recommend this store.

Richard Harootunian

Great seafood at reasonable prices...clean and friendly

John Mesham

Good food with view!

Pete Darnell

Great seafood, brilliant bloody Mary's

Crys Davis

Love this view! The food was rear and so was the staff. Not to mention the price was on point! Go hereeeee

Dottie VanderPyl

Always a great meal here. It's our go to place for awesome seafood. Eating here is never a disappointment. Plus a nice view.

sam anderson

I try to go here at least once a summer to get a lobster. The food is expensive, but it is worth it to avoid cooking a lobster at home.

Ken Doucette

Outstanding sea food

Mark Laferriere

As fresh as it gets.. But when it's busy the food suffers a little bite.. Still worth the drive and wait...


Came in for oysters and snail salad. The snail salad was absolutely delicious but the portion was small for the price. The snail salad was so tender not chewy perfect! The drinks are good but very pricey. We will definitely be back next time we are in Rhode island. The atmosphere is wonderful.

white noise

Great food! The line is usually long, however the food makes the wait worth it.

Majestic Gee

The food was amazing. I will definitely be dining here again in the near future.

Maria Lopez

Very fresh seafood, excellent


It felt fun. The whole family was there and friends, so it felt really fun for me; personally. I like it. The food was really good, and the timing was awesome. The people there were kind. The food came very fast. Loved it there. Would totally recommend.

Anthony Trimble

I've been going to champlin's seafood once a year for the last couple years. It never disappoints! Of course you want to get the one and a half pound lobster!

Amanda Beal

We drove from the Washington, D.C. area up to Maine and stopped a few places along the way. Champlin's was one of our favorite stops. We highly recommend this direct-from-the-ocean, local seafood restaurant.

Jaime Dellovo

Always great seafood!

Jessica Bennett

Amazing seafood! Been coming here since I was a child and now I take my son there and he absolutely loves it too.

Michael T. Lowenthal

Great spot with great views. Went in late November so it wasn't busy but the food was still amazing. I'm sure it's a hot spot during the summer months.

Dereke Winsor

Good seafood. A little pricey but everything here is always fresh caught right off the coast. An extremely popular place that has on most night can have a line of over 50 people waiting to order. It is just that good.

Michele-Louise Ridley-Cook

Nice view of harbor. Good “chowda”.

melindaam1183 .

Wonderful whole belly clams. Also a cute icecream shop downstairs and a wonderful view of the bay or sound. The bar is awesome too!

Robert Boisvert

Great food, fast service

Mark Imming

The freshest seafood you can get. They're located right on the docks and the food comes in straight from the ships. You get to sit at the table and watched the ships come in to the Harbor. And they cook the seafood just right.

Bryan Messier

Great counter service food, probably the best in Pt Judith!

Gerald Fitzpatrick

Great atmosphere, great food and right on the ocean. Beautiful

Randall pelletier

It was my first time here and I was really impressed, the only problem I had was I ordered the lobster bisque and I thought it was a little short on the lobster side. Besides that I found everything else excellent ,the staff and service . I thought the parking was difficult and can only imagine what happens when the weather gets warmer . Don't take this as a criticism , it's my first time and and only expect it better than I thought . The view is wonderful. I would definitely go back .

Steven Tafuri

Good fresh fish. Not fancy but a nice experience

Judy Brown

Great seafood, reasonable prices, casual counter service. Best calamari ever, right from the docks here, spoiled me forever! Good corn, fries, onion rings outstanding! Fast friendly counter service, nice upper deck overlooking all the action of ferries and commercial boats coming in and out of harbor.

Jennifer T

I'm not sure if they had just opened for the season but they ran out of many things on the menu, including straws. The food was okay

Jeffrey Bewlay

Price to high and long wait.

David P.

... visiting Champlin's while visiting from Vermont... Always fresh always delicious...

Joseph Coco

Some of the best clam fritters and RI clam chowder I've ever had. The chowder is clear don't even bring up any other kind. Very casual, order at one window pickup at the next. Enjoy the ocean breeze

Ed Clark

Extremely long line, waited an hour and a half for ok food. Great location and decent food but not enough to justify the line. People working there are great, very nice.

Ted Kraus

Summer does not begin until the first dinner at Champlain's. Great food and drinks, but everyone needs to try the Bloody Mary. Outstanding!

David Jaroslaw

We were given a tip for our visit to Rhode Island (the place is small enough that one can visit the entire state): have some seafood at Champlin's. It didn't disappoint. Nothing fancy. You order from a counter, and it's mostly fried (though there is a raw bar where I had excellent oysters). It's good stuff. I had the fried clams, my wife the fried flounder. The only disappointment was the so-so clam chowder. Definitely worth a visit to Galilee...

Jacqueline Munson

First off, doesn't look this nice. I only stopped in for a cocktail. I did have a bite of someone's stuffie. Ok. I hear their scallops are wonderful. I plan on trying them next visit.

Joann Tranghese

Steamers were great! Easy in and out.

Dave Ross

Best baked stuffed fish dinner in RI.

Johnny Grady

Awesome seafood and great atmosphere.

Kristie Learned

It's a casual environment but with top quality food. Everything was delicious and the service was great.

Daniel Salemi

A dine-in restaurant that serves on single use plates and plastic silverware. You would think a that seafood restaurant might care about the environment. Salt, pepper and ketchup were all served in individual packets. Just utter laziness. Flounder sandwich lacked seasoning and salt. Clam cakes lacked clams. Fries had no salt. Fish tacos were also bland and not seasoned enough. The horseradish dip was good, as was the view.

nintenDad sWitchSon

Great experience, good sights, The food is what you expect from a fish and chip place but it's worth the atmosphere to check it out.

Donald Paradis

Great food awesome service can't be beat

Ildiko Nagy

Delicious, fresh local food, casual atmosphere, friendly people. If you like Rhode Island originals, this is a great place for you!

Wai Moy

The food is on par with other sea food places, always busy and clean, great views of the waterfront and boats passing by.

Tammi Trudel

Best clam cakes and red "chowda" by far!! Amazing view at sunset and the icecream down stairs is just to die for!

Barry Ruiz

Had such a great experience this place showed me why new England sea food is the best

Christopher Joyce

Excellent fresh fried seafood. No frills!

Andrea DeCiantis

Great food! Lots of food! Good prices! Awesome location

Christopher Selph

Really love this place. Very good food, very good food to eat by the water.

Dennise D

The steamed lobster, white chowder and clam cakes were delicious. Not sure why they gave us fries with the lobsters, usually they serve red bliss potatoes (the kids didn't mind).

Christine Nascimento

Absolutely delicious food reasonably priced, with great seating tha has fantastic views overlooking the ocean .

Jenny Sem

Good foods and drinks.

Kathleen Beauchemin

I love lobster! First we stop downstairs and choose my lobster...on the last trip it was a succulent 3+#s!!! They send it upstairs to be cooked and voila...there it is, perfection! It was delicious, filled with moist tender huge that even I couldn't finish it! Definitely my favorite place to go for fresh, right off the boat lobsters! Yum! Also, lobster is not the most graceful food to eat and atmosphere at Chaplains is perfect if you love to get into the nutty gritty of that delectable crustacean! The people are friendly, the staff is great and the prices are right! A lot less expensive than a fine dining restaurant where they serve only 1 1/2 - 2 pounders! I definitely would recommend this place!

Tom Westlake

Always great food and atmosphere!

Amanda Loch

We were vacationing here from Wisconsin with family. And wanted some GREAT seafood especially some real fish and chips. We are from Wisconsin so it is really not authentic there and plus I am from RI so I wanted some real seafood to re live my childhood. The seafood here is amazingly fresh. Although the line was ridiculous the staff and food made me forget about it. The view is awesome, brought back many childhood memories! Would definitely come back. Thank you Champlain!

Walter Levy

Where else but adjacent to the scallop fleet can you expect the absolute best fresh scallops anywhere ever? Trust me. Happy customer for almost 40 years. Oh, the lobster roll ain't half bad either!

Andre Allard

The lines are long because, the food is awesome. The servers are quick to make the long lines less long. If that doesn't sway your opinion on the wait. Enjoy a cold drink at the bar over looking the docks where the food you are going to enjoy gets offloaded from the local fishing boats.

Joey Bowers

Chicken's great, service is quick and simple, everything is wonderful. No complaints.

George Willet

This place will give you a heart attack ....if you go there too often ... but I like it! Great location and view, fun atmosphere, people working there are great, cool little bar, and the food is greasy, fishy and damn tasty. We go only a couple times a year, but enjoy it each time.

Pam Rainey

Fun just to be there. The great foid is a bonus!!

Eduard bayona

Nice frest sea food ,

jean calo

Needs more parking

Elizabeth Rainbow Dancer

I have traveled the world, Champlins has The Best Seafood in the USA !
