    Our waitress Megan was amazing! We started with the lobster shrimp fritters. All I can say was phenomenal. The maple chipotle aioli was so good. My sister has the seafood pasta and I had the fish and chips. Both were very good. I want to take the aioli home with me it was delicious

    Excellent food, well prepared and presented. Wait staff friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Only down side is the cost of parking.

    Dined here for our anniversary. Lovely table with sunset view, outstanding service from “K” and bartenders Mark and Nick were excellent. Lobster shrimp fritters were excellent. Pork chop good but ever so slightly over cooked. Hot lobster roll was delicious. Staff even signed an anniversary card for us! Thank you for a lovely evening!

    The food was ok. Everything was very fresh and moderately priced. The fish and chips was coated in a heavy thick batter and a bit wet on the inside. The quality of the cod inside was delicious but the thick greasy batter kind of ruined it. The lobster claw was good but very small kind of like the size of a crab claw. The scallop crudo was a bit too sweet but it was very fresh, it was a simple preparation. Overall the ambiance was nice, good view, great service, out server was amazing.

    Very good as usual. We’ve been here a handful of times and it doesn’t disappoint. Service was great, food was good, the scenery at this waterfront location sets the mood for having seafood that’s so good in Rhode Island. The bag o’ donuts is a must try.

    Celebrating a retirement and a Bon Voyage for our grandson with daughter in law and granddaughter who are gluten-free and have celiac is always difficult, however not at the Mooring!!! the food was delicious the gluten-free menu exceptional, and the staff couldn’t have been nicer. Raw Barr, calamari, scallops, crème brûlée, and flourless chocolate cake. Thank you the Moorings we all had a great time!
