The Wickford Diner is much like Rhode Island: small but full of big surprises.
This tiny diner located in a beautiful coastal, village-like setting of North Kingston, R.I., is
simply a gem. While you’ll find all the affordable diner staples here like eggs, pancakes, meat loaf, burgers, and BLTs, the real stars here are local Rhode Island favorites like quahog chowder (quahogs are clams that come from a thicker shell), lobster bisque, clam cakes, a lobster roll (no “imitation” garbage here, it’s the real stuff!), or a fried bay scallop dinner, to name a few. They also have Portuguese muffins, a doughy bun that is great toasted with butter. This is clearly not typical diner food!
So, while it’s always tempting to go with a burger at a diner, we strongly recommend opting for the regional fare at this cozy, informal, salt-of-the-earth little eatery. Oh, and by the way, you’ll be dining in one of New England most beautiful, little coastal villages — filled with scenic water views, places to stroll, a nice mix of locally-owned shops and boutiques, and fine, old neighborhoods with well kept historic homes.
