    Great little Mediterranean restaurant right on the Sakonnet River with an excellent view of the sunset. Casual atmosphere, friendly wait staff. Menu is small but excellent. Great for drinks and apps or a full meal including delicious dessert options. Highly recommend this little gem in the East Bay.

    I have eaten at the RD 4 times in 2022. This time my son and I had the roasted cod dish. I was appalled at the size of the cod. It couldn’t have been more than two ounces. Also requested window booth but told couldn’t because all of reservations. Two booths were open the entire stay. 4:30 reservation. Very disappointed.

    We had a nice window booth and were able to enjoy the sunset as the sun dropped out of the clouds and disappeared behind Aquidneck Island. Red Dory did not have a lot of business so the noise level was lower than when full. Service was fine and food was great. All in all, a good experience.

    We had our Easter lunch here with our adult son. The Steak frites dish was amazing- tender & tasty and perfectly done. My scallop appetizer was also fabulous, with delicious tender scallops perfectly cooked on a bed of sweet potato mash with pesto and pea greens. Red Dory should expand this scallop dish to be a main course- it was amazing! My husbands bolognese pasta dish was equally a hit. We were pleased with the service too! Great day! Great restaurant for any occasion! They also have a bright private room for small groups- lots of windows, pleasant atmosphere! Definitely a great place for lunch or dinner!

    The menu and food were outstanding. We really appreciate a menu, which has different or unusual items on it. I have ordered the cod and little necks twice (superb) but tried something different this time. The salmon was also very good. Nice presentation. I am newly into looking for nonalcoholic options on a beverage menu. A week or two ago, the waitress said the bartender had a n/a speciality. It was delicious. Last night, there was a different bartender and she served up lemonade, which was not interesting in any way. The "sober curious" movement is gaining traction so I hope all Red Dory's bartenders would have one or two non alcoholic cocktails to offer patrons.

    The Red Dory is beautiful and in a great location, with a beautiful water view. Staff were warm and welcoming. My only feedback was there was very limited vegetarian and non-fish dishes. I ordered the pasta with cauliflower, which was delicious, but would not have been an option for a vegetarian.

    Delicous food at a fair price. The cod fish was perfectly cooked and the house made sausage was a great addition to the dish. The cauliflower bucatini is an all time favorite. So glad we remembered to save room for the fabulous homemade ice cream!
