    This is a wonderful seafood restaurant with a Mediterranean flair on the main street in Tiverton. Fried oysters and other appetizers were delicious and the portions are very fair for the price. We did a Surf-Turf kind of split. I ordered the sea bass and my spouse had the steak frites. Both were very tasty and perfectly cooked. Great service from our waitress. This is a terrific joint for Tiverton to have, popular with locals and tourists alike.

    We happen to have seating outside. Although extremely gorgeous, the sun was a little brutal as it was near sunset and the noise from the street made it very difficult to hear our parties speak. The food was beyond compare and that will definitely bring us back!

    Excellent night celebrating a birthday at the Red Dory. We tried just about everything on the appetizer menu and they were all amazing. The entrees were Fish and Chips , Steak Frites and Cod. Everything came out hot and was delicious. For dessert we had the chocolate cake and the Lemon Blueberry dessert which were both excellent. Our server was great she was fun, professional , friendly and we never felt rushed at all. Kudos to the kitchen and servers because all the food that was brought to the table every dish was hot. Between the great food and our wonderful server we will be back !

    Food is delicious and fresh. Menu changes with the seasons which is great. Servers are efficient and friendly. Wish they would put pads on the legs of the bar stools and chairs to minimize the “scraping” noise.

    Celebrating a birthday during my first visit to your restaurant. I bid on and won a $100 gift certificate at the annual PBS fundraising gala. This was an opportunity for me to visit the other side of “the bay”. I live in Pawtuxet Village.

    The soups, the bass ceviche, the bucatini, and the blackberry Brr were all wonderful. Couldn't take our little dog onto patio but the manager was very nice and professional and we survived! Will definitely return, great place to take out-of-town guests.

    We've never had a bad meal but we have had some that were less interesting than we expected. Tonight's meal was more satisfying-richer, more complex sauces. I don't know if I just "hit the jackbox" with my cod stew, but it was really delicious-spicy, rich, full of clams, beans and sausage. Hope it's a sign of more interesting meal ahead.

    We’ve been coming to the Red Dory for years. It has definitely gone downhill. It’s too bad because it is a great location and the people are nice. But the food just isn’t good for the value. I think it would be smart for the Red Dory to bring back the salmon dish and a good chicken dish. The sauces were overpowering. The red pepper soup tasted like marinara sauce. And the bread is consistently stale. For the price it’s just not worth it.

    Love the atmosphere. Waitress Shelby was great. Arugula Salad not fresh greens wilted with lots of brown spots, this is the third time I’ve had a not fresh salad at the restaurant. I will not order any salads food other wise OK not near as good as used to be when first opened.

    Some of the best food we’ve had in a long time (especially the scallops and the lemon buttermilk pudding), and exceptional cocktails. The service was also very good. The only minor inconvenience is that the restaurant was quite warm, but that will certainly not prevent us from returning!
