Typical, solid bar/restaurant with excellent, diverse menu and great prices. They just redid the decor of the restaurant and it's very nice inside. It can accommodate large parties but also has a nice intimate atmosphere in the bar area with table seating, too. I believe you can search http://www.groupon.com for a coupon.

Incredibly reasonable deli with seating inside. You can see quite a few college students from Bryant University throughout the day because of their prices and quality of sandwiches, soups, etc. Also, many of the local corporate headquarter's employees with go here for lunch.

The chef from another well-known, high-end restaurant purchased this restaurant and is now doing well with this new restaurant. It's a smaller and more quiet crowd. I recommend seating in the bar area as well as at the bar, too. Great food and creative American food menu.

Huge bar and restaurant with convenient light strip quasi outlets to charge your cell phone. I've never seen a bar offer that feature so I thought that was quite creative. Great Mexican restaurant with tasty drinks. Fantastic wait staff and bartenders. Very friendly, too.

Everything Else
There's only one reason I go to Parente's. It's for their Black Angus burger with sweet potato fries. The beef is local raised at Blackbird Farm in Smithfield. No anti-biotics, hormones & grass fed

Entertainment & Activities
If you've not been to Waterfire before, you must go. It's an extravaganza like you've never seen before, with floating caldrons burning wood in the center with gondolas staffed with volunteers in black and white striped t-shirts and hats, just like Italy. Gregorian chant music is playing and the city is gorgeous with it's buildings lit. See https://www.waterfire.org for their schedule.

Great little beach and only a 3 minute walk from our condo. Swim, kayak, paddle board, or bring your inflatable float and catch some sun. Early morning is a wonderful time to go prior to the weekend crowd. This beach has hardly any people during week days and has awesome sunsets with a
