Aunt Carrie's is great! The food is awesome and the staff is always smiling and very helpful! The clamcakes are bigger then any clamcake I've had and I've been to a lot of seafood joints! It's Crazy the price you pay for all the food you get! If you get a dinner ...It starts with a cup of chowder(m,t,or p), a bowl of salad or coleslaw (the slaw is wonderful), your choice of fries, veggie, or starch, homemade bread and butter, and then it comes with a choice of any of their homemade pies or classic indian pudding, plus you get your drink!! Where can you get ALL that food for anywhere between 10.95 and 25 bucks?! Plus if you have kids....the food in the dinning room is served on frisbees and at the counter it's served in sandpals.... My kids LOVE it!
Did I forget to say it's BYOB...no cork fee! This is by far my favorite place to go in the summer! I just wish I could get some cakes in December!
WENT TO AUNT CARRIE'S A FEW WEEKS BACK AND I HAVE TO SAY IT WAS TERRIBLE.THE CLAM CAKES TASTED LIKE THEY CHANGED THE OIL OR SOMETHING.VERY BLAND WITH AN AFTER TASTE NOT TO MENTION THEY WERE OVER COOKED AND SMALL.THE CHOWDER HAD ABSOLUTELY NO FLAVOR.I HAVE TO SAY I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED.I HAD BEEN VISITING THERE EVERY SUMMER FOR MOST OF MY LIFE BUT I DON'T THINK I'LL BE BACK AGAIN!
My Lobster was water logged. The service was
slow, but we were a large group. Also the Italian flouder was horrible.And the clam chowder was bland and watered down even if you ask for CREAMY !!! I suggest some other seafood restaurant in Narragansett, RI .
I have been going to Aunt Carrie's for 60 years. It was always a very good value. In fact Spring wasn't Spring until a visit to Aunt Carrie's. Last year we ate inside and had Clam Chowder(milk), Clam Cakes and Fried Clams with the bellies. Great Bread baked on the premises. The Clam Chowder had almost no potatoes or clams? The Clam Cakes were good but some were not quite cooked inside. The Fried Clams were good but certainly not a good value. I spoke to the waitress concerning the Clam Chowder and was told "thats the way it is running"? I can remember the Foy's daughter watching the same teenagers both inside the kitchen and the waitress staff to be sure every thing was perfect. I will return soon as I hope it will return to normal!

I have been coming to Aunt Carries for a very long time and the food and value was always awesome. My visit for lunch today was the first for this summer season. I couldn't believe what we were eating. Hubby ordered chowder, clam cakes and a shrimp roll. Chowder was tasteless, full of potatoes, clam cakes were soggy, and the shrimp roll was aweful. Appeared to be frozen and just heated up. They were small and not worth the value. They were unfit to eat. I had chowder and agreeded that it was tasteless and was loaded with potatoes. My fish sandwich was soggy and the fish smelled unpleasent. Think they also went up in lobster roll price, so, I didn't order it. I wil not be going back, ever...........We had to go looking for our waitress for check. Found her sitting at a table chatting with friends...........
Disliked absolutely nothing about Aunt Carries.
The food, service and price were second to none.
I just wish we had something like this in England cos I'd kill for a bowl of clam chowder right now and we don't have it here
Aunt Carrie's is by FAR my favorite place to eat!! I have been going there since I was a baby. Indian pudding was the first food I ever ate!. The portions are HUGE! Traditional basic Rhode Island seafood! THE scollops are scrumptious....can't find another place that can broil the same! Where can you eat and and leave stuffed for under 20 bucks for 2 people?! The only change in the recipe for chowder is that they added more clams this summer. (for all those complaining of change)
THe homemade stawberry Shortcake is UNBELIEVEABLE!!! The staff are all cute as a button!!
Plus the dinner includes soup, salad, bread, desert, drink.... great price!
Don't forget your BEER and WINE. It's BYOB..wich I Love because it's so much cheaper to go out to eat and bring beer in a cooler.....Dinner for $35 for 2 is much better then $60....adding beer and wine.

Aunt Carries is the standard for seaside, summertime seafood against which all is measured. The clam cakes are the best.
As a native Rhode Islander living in another state, I make at least one trip there each summer. While the chowder may have changed since the Foy's owned the place, the rest of the food is great. They also have great pies!!!
This is a must for all who love Rhode Island seafood. It is a RI experience along with Dell's and Awful Awful's.
The clam cakes are the best I've ever tasted. The service was great. Our large group was very quickly accommodated. The price was amazing and the ambiance just perfect. It's the best value for money and a great place to eat even if you haven't spent a day at the beach.
