Overlooking Wickford Harbor is the majestic Tavern by the Sea. This wonderful historical mansion is reminiscent of an old framed boathouse. Here you can sit on the deck and dine while watching white swans and ducks swimming in the cove with their little ones following close at hand. The water views are terrific, either dining inside or out. Relax and let your thoughts sail away with the sailboats in the harbor. The deck feels a bit rustic and is accented by beautiful umbrellas to shade you from the sun. The interior showcases a handsome and inviting wooden bar featuring great wines and cocktails. The dining areas are both casual and comfortable. You dine in an atmosphere of being a guest at an old seaside resort. This romantic restaurant and tavern also serves great food along with the great views.
