Our ferry destinations offer opportunities for sightseeing, historical tours, museum visits, shopping and dining. Folks on both sides of the bay can hop on the ferry and check out all of the wonderful restaurants that are just a short ferry ride away—no traffic or parking hassles to worry about! Of note are a number of new restaurants to check out in Jamestown—Beech, Our Table Jamestown, JB's On The Water, Tallulah's Taqueria, The General's Crossing Brewhouse (you may carry food in to have with a brew) and 1 Ferry Wharf (at East Ferry Wharf). There are some old favorites that are worth checking out as well—Angels Kitchen, J22 Tap and Table, Narragansett Cafe, Slice of Heaven, Ace's Pizza and Village Hearth Bakery and Cafe. For a quick sandwich, stop at East Ferry Market & Deli. Don't forget to drop by Grapes & Gourmet to check out the wines, hard to find imported cheeses and craft beer collection.
