Delightful Waterfront Dining
Tavern by the Sea, a South County treasure for ten years, has a picturesque location on the banks of Wickford Harbor. The year-round restaurant known for its seafood is the only full-service restaurant in historic Wickford Village.  The view of the cove, complete with passing sailboats, kayaks, swans and ducks, is just as beautiful inside as it is outdoors on the expansive deck. The relaxing setting sets the tone for a carefree, casual fine dining experience.

The tranquil view is perfectly paired with an extensive menu that highlights traditional New England and Mediterranean fare. Fresh seafood, rich pastas, grilled pizzas and gourmet burgers offer something for every taste. The lunch and dinner menus not only offer the freshest local fish, produce and food available, it’s also reasonably priced with most items priced under $20. 

Tuesdays are Extra Special
One of the most popular nights at this Wickford favorite is Tuesday, where an incredible prix-fixe menu offers two entrees and two glasses of wine for $34.95. Guests can choose from nine signature dishes off of the Tuesday Night Special Menu including Chicken Piccata, Spinach and Ricotta Cheese Ravioli, Pork Tenderloin Alla Papa and Baked Boston Scrod. 

Whether it’s a romantic table for two, a large family dinner or cocktails and appetizers at the outdoor patio bar, Tavern by the Sea is sure to charm you with a delightful waterfront experience. 

Creative Cocktails: The seasonal cocktail menu here is a sight for thirsty guests. Signature martinis, sangrias, Bloody Marys and frozen specialties are as creative as they are tasty. Beer, wine and even Del’s Lemonade are also on the menu. 

Gluten-Free and Delicious: Tavern by the Sea has a special gluten-free menu that features hand-tossed pizza, pasta and a variety of other dishes.
