Wheel House, 294 Great Island Road, Narragansett, RI 02882 (401) 284-0246
Great Island Road in Narragansett could be seen as RI's clam strip row. That's because you can skip a stone in one direction and hit a dozen, clam shacks that is. Several of which we have already talked about on this blog. With the recent venture back for the BRU Rock Hunt, we realized there's more to go. The photo above says it all. Walk up the wooden steps to the Wheel House and enter the most intriguing establishment near the Block Island ferry. Look to your left and there's the bar with a great deck overlooking the marina on Point Judith Pond, then look to your right and there's a stage. Seems awesome. But look up and see the menu displayed in large signs above a take-out window consisting of our favorite fried seafood delights. Only one word to describe it, amazing! Beer, clams and live music. Sounds like our kind of place. Open daily from 8 am to 1 am, the Wheel House attracts all sorts of patrons year-round. Whether it's a quick bite to eat while waiting for the ferry, or relaxing on the deck with a cold 'Gansett you can't loose. Then at night party with some of the best live bands in Rhode Island. It's not the biggest venue, but offers some of the best sound and lights in the state. It's a favorite hangout among URI students in the school year and in the summer a great spot for anyone visiting. With Narragansett 16oz cans of both lager and light, you don't want to just walk past this place. For the full menu and list of upcoming shows, visit them online at WheelHouselive.com.
