    We will be spending the weekend in Narragansett, RI May 22 for my sisters law school graduation. Id love some thoughts on sights to see or a really great seafood restaurant. I love those great out of the way places the locals know about. There will be several adults, my 6 year old and maybe my 18 year old. Any advice would be great.

    wow that menu is out of this world but the price [​IMG] $80 Im sure its worth it but not on a weekend budget. I could spend the night at the dessert table in that place.

    GOOD HEAVENS!!!! [​IMG] That to me is outrageous. For 80.00 I hope you are getting sturgeon eggs. [​IMG][​IMG] I spend 4.99 for all you can eat Chinese buffet and they have shrimp, muscles, scallops, fish..and all the other goodies that are Chinese, crab ragoon, egg rolls. Guess I am just cheap!!!!

    LOL..yeah..i certanily dont think i can eat $80 worth of food...but..if ya think about it...lobster is about $10-12 a pound...so..if you eat a few 1-2 pounders..and then have some prime rib and shrimp...we get close to eating our $80 worth of food! well..actually hubby can get his moneys worth for sure! we just dont eat anything that day before we go so we have more room for lobster! [​IMG] then we get sick from all the lobster and butter... [​IMG] have fun on your vacation! [​IMG]
