Menus are laminated to prevent diners from spilling coffee or trying to pen “lobster” into every item’s description. Get the dish you really want with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood, burgers, and more at Carousel Grille in Warwick.
Carousel Grille dishes out a menu filled with fresh seafood and classic flame-kissed fare. Wake drowsing taste buds with a starter such as loaded clam cakes ($3.99/half dozen; $7.99/dozen), or sip spoonfuls of creamy white or red clam chowder ($2.99/cup). Fresh lobster salad takes center stage atop butter-grilled torpedo rolls ($15.99), which, unlike regular torpedoes, cannot be used to win Battleship. Turf-favoring patrons quell belly rumblings with the eatery's namesake burger ($8.99), which eschews donning a name tag in favor of wearing provolone cheese, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted red peppers.
Inside Carousel Grille's welcoming confines, high-definition TVs broadcast local sports matchups to enthusiastic diners and sentient foam fingers. Late-night visitors can also opt to sip a beer on the eatery's outdoor patio or feed their ears by enjoying live music on weekends after 9:30 p.m.
The outdoor patio of Carousel Grill nestles near Narragansett Bay, bathed in the warm coastal sun. Baskets of fried clam cakes and cups of chunky clam chowder travel to tables in the arms of servers, who cradle them with the tender spirit of a stork. Carousel Grille’s menu revolves around fresh seafood, showcasing clams on the half-shell, dressed up for the casino, or stirred into creamy red or white chowder. Inside, a granite bar corrals barkeeps who serve up bottles of Boston-brewed Sam Adams beer under the glow of high-def TVs that broadcast Red Sox, Celtics, and Patriots games.
