Now Eat This: Four Restaurants with a View

“Now Eat This,” the ultimate guide to what to eat in our tiny corner of the world

This week, we present Four Restaurants With a View. That is, four places where you can spend as much time staring dreamily out the window as you can eyeing the dish brought to your table-neighbors.

Boat House

Its large terrace overlooking the Sakonnet River is the perfect place to enjoy a summer day (or night) and some of Boat House’s innovative seafood. Start with chilled oysters or littlenecks, followed by their signature shrimp and corn chowder. 227 Schooner Dr., Tiverton, 401-624-6300,

Castle Hill Inn

Castle Hill Inn is fine dining at its best. Its four dining rooms and expansive lawn feature postcard-perfect ocean views. Start your Sunday morning with brunch and a mimosa, or call it a day with dinner and a digestif. 590 Ocean Dr., Newport, 401-849-4800,

Coast Guard House

The Coast Guard House, located alongside the iconic Narragansett Towers and sea wall, offers unforgettably fresh seafood, bay views and really friendly folks. Featuring indoor and outdoor seating, experience a majestic sunset while noshing on crab cakes, littlenecks, lobster and more. 40 Ocean Rd., Narragansett, 401-789-0700,

Chair 5

While it might be mildly disappointing that there is no attractive lifeguard on patrol at Chair 5, you’re disappointment will wane as soon as you set eyes on the sexy menu. The array of dishes present fresh seafood with a twist, including grilled oysters, funnel clamcakes and charred octopus. Who needs a sweaty lifeguard in tight shorts when you can have buttermilk fried chicken alongside seared scallops?  The Break, 1208 Ocean Road, Narragansett, 401-363-9820,
