Nestled within the King Philip Tower six stories above the town of Bristol, Natalia's In The Sky sits on the very point of a peninsula, providing scenic views of the Rhode Island Sound from Newport to Providence. They compliment these stunning views with fine Italian cuisine. Mountains of linguini in house-made marsala resemble the visible slopes of Mt. Hope, while fresh baked scallops au gratin wallow in a sea of cheese akin to the rippling waters of Narragansett Bay.
The chefs at Portsmouth Publick House put their own twist on classics. They douse the bison burger with mango chutney; pair lobster with a croissant; and stuff quesadillas with marinated shrimp, fresh cilantro, and jalapenos. The rest of the menu, including piping-hot pizzas and soup, refuels patrons during contests and other forms of entertainment. On Thursday nights, guests put their heads together over trivia questions. Saturdays feature live music from 7?9 p.m., and $1 Raw Bar is an everyday occasion.
The chefs at Tap House Grille wrap bacon around meatloaf, top hand-formed Angus beef patties with guacamole and roasted chilies, and put inventive spins on classic American dishes. In the dining room, flatscreen televisions hang above tufted banquettes and a handsome wooden bar keeps more than 50 bottled beers and 24 rotating drafts chilled. On Friday and Saturday nights, live music, comedy acts, and Simon Says tournaments entertain patrons, and a complimentary valet service babysits patrons’ cars.
Soaking up the vibes alongside Oakland Beach, Marley's on the Beach takes on the personality of its waterfront location. Inside, tables spread visitors out across a spacious dining area, and tiki hut hatching decorates a fully stocked bar. There, servers concoct refreshing cocktails and frozen drinks, such as the orange vodka and ice cream mix-infused creamcicle. Adding to the relaxed island feel, live bands gets crowds swinging and swaying every night the restaurant is open.

Vistas of the sailboats on Warwick Cove and the activity at Brewer Greenwich Bay Marina set the scene at County Cork Irish Pub, whether seated on the outdoor patio or within the cozy, WiFi-enabled dining room. Guinness posters and light-up signs line the earth-toned walls, luring diners to the wooden bar where they can order a pint and catch a game on one of the flatscreen TVs. To fuel these endeavors, the kitchen staff prepares a menu of the classics, including corned-beef reubens, cottage pie, and fish and chips, along with local staples such as New England clam chowder and four specialty burgers.
