    Quality of food was poor. Service was very good. It was very chilly for all…there were heaters in corner of deck but not being used.

    I made reservations to sit inside, but we were seated outside. I didn’t say anything because I thought maybe they don’t have the staff for inside seating. We were taken to a dirty table and I asked the hostess if perhaps she could have it cleaned off, she decided to just sit us at another table. This where I believe it all began. We sat down and no one came over to say they were our waiter/waitress or to offer us water. After about 25 minutes my husband finally got up and spoke with a gentleman, who appeared to be the manager, to let him know we didn’t have a waiter/waitress. Finally, a nice young man came over, it was apparent this was not his table. It seemed he was overwhelmed but he did the best he could and despite everything going on he was very pleasant. I will say, the weather was very nice and I imagine this had something to do with how busy it appeared to be. I have been here on busy summer days and this type of bad service would understandable but it was definitely unexpected in October.

    My baked scrod was dry and chewy. Green beans way to underdone. Server was great though. Won't recommend the food. Very under seasoned also.

    Outdoor dining at 3 during a September week is the perfect time to avoid crowds and get the best service and food here. Stuffie starter was huge! Fish and chips were excellent as was my husbands fish reuben. Are the fries new? They were much better than I remembered them, crispy outside, pillowy inside with a tasty seasoning. Service was friendly and professional. Great experience overall in a beautiful waterfront location!

    I think when a party come in with at least 10 people, they should have a certain area to be seated at. We were sitting, eating out meal, they sat a party right near us that were so loud, we couldn’t even hear our friends talking to us. We couldn’t wait to get out of there.

    Every year we look forward to dining at Chelos Waterfront and normally have a great experience. Not this year. We had a reservation for six, but was told someone was sitting at our table. After being seated in a busy hallway at the door, I had to ask for a different table. I ordered my favorite drink and it tasted off. Couldn’t finish it, told the waitress and ordered a beer instead. When the check came the very expensive drink was listed as Maker’s Mark. No way was it made with MM. Management wouldn’t take the drink off check. The food was okay but not up to the quality of we’ve experienced in past years. They’ve lost a good customer.

    Basically, they have good Pub food. Nice outside dinning experience with music. We go every year when we’re back in RI once or twice. I must say I had to send my drink back. Aperol Spritz. The WORST I’ve ever had anywhere. Very little Aperol with seltzer. I don’t believe there was a drop of Prosecco. Flat, no taste and disappointing. Any of the IPA’s I would have ordered……..they were out. Guess they need a new Bar manager.

    We arrived about 30 minutes early for our reservation. The place was buzzing with activity, and we were able to grab a drink and enjoy an outside seat, to listen to the great band while we waited We were promptly shown our table at our reserved time, and had a great evening on the deck Food was great, service was stellar, and we even had the waitstaff sing an impromptu happy birthday to one our party members We will plan on returning, when in the area again.

    Had reservations for outside but was seated basically on top of the bar, which was very crowded with people seated and standing so not much space and felt like they were on top of us. Further out on the deck would have been better. There was great entertainment so I think with that and a holiday weekend and gorgeous weather it brought everyone out. Very pleased with service and our server was spectacular!!! Food was great and also drinks. Love the location and definitely make reservations.

    Went on the weekend with a reservation (which is highly recommended if you don’t want to wait at least 45 minutes). Sat outside on the deck which seemed a little chaotic and unorganized. Service was on the slower side but not too bad. Server was pleasant. Food was good but a little pricey for what is offered on the menu. Drinks were good sized but seemed to take a long time to get. Overall an ok experience but for a $140 lunch, I would have expected a less chaotic and more relaxed experience.

    Made a reservation for 630, signed in at 615 was told "just waiting for your table to be cleared". Many people coming in after us got seated. After waiting 45 mind my husband asked when our table would be ready again was told "just waiting for your table to be cleared" he said we have been waiting 45 mins and no one is clearing tables. One of the hostesses tried to bring us to a table outside by the band. I reserved a table inside we didn't want to sit outside or by the band. She then brought us back inside we waited another 10 mins and then they stuck us at a table by the door where everyone was clustering around waiting to be seated. When our food arrived they dropped the food and took off before we could tell them we were missing my salad and some other things. Took us forever to find our waitress to get what we needed. This was our anniversary dinner and it was awful!!

    Waited way too long for our drinks and food. Clam fritters had no taste. I don’t blame the server I blame the management who didn’t properly staff for a busy weekend. Went a few years back and it was great. We won’t be going back.

    Even with reservation a bit of a wait, the traffic in and out is a little bit of a mess. The food and drinks were fantastic, a little pricey but not too bad for waterfront. Staff even though they have plenty they aren’t very attentive. It’s basic service.

    Made a reservation five days in advance. When I arrived, the hostess told me it would be a few minutes for our table. When she brought us to our table, it was a table for four not five and we could not sit there. She said the only other option was a picnic table or sit inside. We decided on sitting inside. After sitting at the table, we realized it was not clean. After waiting ten minutes for a server, I went over to a manager to ask her if we could have a server and the table cleaned.
