Rhode Island

Champlin’s Seafood Restaurant, Galilee

What to order: fish-and-chips, fried clams, fried shrimp, and the huge fried scallops. And you can’t go wrong with the Rhode Island-style clear-broth chowder. Chase it with crisp, chilled Narragansett Lager, a revitalized old New England favorite.

The view: The state’s biggest fishing fleet bustles in and out of Galilee Harbor. Block Island hovers on the horizon. Flocks of gulls and chattering summer visitors wander the docks.

What you’ll shell out: $7–$25 for entrées; lobsters, market price.

Check it out: 256 Great Island Road; 401/783-3152 or champlins.com
