South County, Rhode Island is known for its seafood. The port of Galilee brings in fresh catch daily and you can even buy lobsters right off the boat down by the dock. Our restaurants serve the state's official appetizer, fried calamari, prepared in a variety of styles. And you can get a lobster roll, and clam cakes and chowder just about everywhere. But did you know there are more dining options here? And even further, educational culinary opportunities? From farm-to-table restaurants and little bistros that are BYOB, to cooking classes and more, South County is more than clam cakes and chowder.
