Dune Brothers

Since this is Rhode Island and you’re only a few miles from water at all times, you don’t have to drive to the beach to get your fresh seafood. Case in point: Dune Brothers, a seafood shack plopped squarely downtown that’s great for a quick lunch. 

But what to choose—the creamy white chowder and three honking big fried clam cakes, or a crackling hunk of fried fish with a potato chip crust? You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but what really gets us hungry is the crab roll: Jonah crab is mixed with just the right amount of mayo and a shake of Old Bay, allowing the sweet, flaky meat to shine. It’s a sleeper hit that pairs well with a cold ‘Gansett (for out-of-staters, that’s Narragansett beer), or even a locally made Yacht Club soda. After ordering, walk across the shell-strewn patio and grab a picnic table to fork your fried fish on the premises.
