15 Point Road, A special treat in Portsmouth Rhode Island along the Sakonnet River. Busy, but not crowded, 15 Point offers casual upscale dining with an enchanting moonlit river view. A traditional menu, strongly influenced by the local bounty (especially from the sea), pleases most everyone and house specialties are an ever-changing eclectic delight of innovative and contemporary dishes. Once inside you will be entranced by the view of the Sakonnet River which leads out to the ocean beyond through the panorama of windows. While enjoying Al Fresco dining on our deck, across the river you will occasionally notice the local fishing boats as they make their way to the Tiverton fish market. If you're lucky enough, you might even catch one of the local lobstermen heading out to tend his lobster traps in Mount Hope Bay!

We'd heard about this restaurant for years but had never been. Atmosphere was fantastic with great views and nice, updated interior finishes. Pricing was as expected and service was quite friendly (although MIA at one point between appetizers and main course). We will go back!

Our group of six visited for the first time on a Sunday afternoon. We sat outside on the deck because the weather was perfect. (I didn't get the chance to walk inside the restaurant to see what it was like.)

When taking our orders, our server didn't write a word down! Impressive! Our dishes were all delicious, almost made to order, as were our drinks!

I would definitely return to this lovely restaurant and highly recommend it.

15 point road is amazing, their food is always on point (no pun intended) and their service is stellar. Their staff is great at drink recommendations as well as pairings. When you go - get the calamari app and you will never get it anywhere else!

We've been here twice in two weeks and loved both meals, lunch and dinner. Make sure you have a reservation for dinner...it's a popular place! I highly recommend the seafood medley shown in the picture (I don't remember its name though!). The soups are also fantastic and great red sangria. We'll definitely become regulars. :)

Great atmosphere and drinks. Unfortunately, I ordered the papperdelle pasta which was like a soup, and the grilled chicken was like rubber. The caprese salad had unripe tomatoes and chewy mozerella with an overwhelming amount of fresh black pepper. My husband had the burger which he enjoyed.

15 Point Road is one of our favorite restaurants. Since it was the Saturday before the 4th of July it was very busy. We had 6pm reservations and were seated promptly. The service was excellent. The patrons behind our table were very loud - so it made conversation difficult for us.
The medley of zucchini, summer squash and green beans was cooked perfectly but could have used some flavoring. My carrot cake was dry, but my husband loved his key lime pie.

We will be back soon.

We had an 8pm reservation for a party of 9 and were seated just about 8pm. The staff went out of their way to make sure we received great service. The waterfront view is terrific, even at night. I ordered the Stuffed 1/2 Lobster and so did someone else in our party. We both thought the lobster was over cooked. The stuffing was somewhat dry because of this. Everyone else thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I would recommend this restaurant based on the service from the staff alone. I would have given them 5 stars had my lobster not been overcooked.

Great food, good service & nice view of the river. Well worth the 1 hr. drive from north-central RI. Not a lot of seating if the patio seating isn't available due to bad weather, so make a reservation if you don't like to wait. There is a bar if you like having a drink before being seated

Have been to 15 Point Road many times . Has been our favorite restaurant . Last night was a different experience than most others . The service was extremely slow . We were there for almost three hours . While it was busy it was no busier than other Saturday nights that we have been there . The waitress seemed to disappear frequently . Needless to say we were disappointed .

I ordered a medium/pink center filet which for the third consecutive time at this restaurant, again arrived very rare. My friend's lamb chops were also very undercooked (besides being quite thin and mostly gristle/fat). Apparently the cooks don't know how to use a meat thermometer.
The two others in our party had nearly finished their meals when the filet and lamb chops returned, more cooked .
While we were offered complimentary drinks or dessert as compensation, the experience was not a good one, especially considering that this place is not inexpensive.

We loved 15 Point. We were seated at a table overlooking the river and it was perfect. We had a delicious dinner with fresh and interesting combos but the swordfish was a little dry. I don’t mind a little noise but when a large party came in the volume escalated until we were barely able to talk. But we did enjoy ourselves, the staff were all very nice and we will be back.
