Go for the clam chowder and clam cakes-delicious
The Wickford Diner is located in the beautiful historic village of Wickford, Rhode Island, technically North Kingstown. This is a very casual place, once an old fashioned diner with typical counter service, but some space has been added and tables and chairs available also. The menu is simple, with old fashioned staples of American cuisine, extensive breakfast and lunch specialties. They close at 3:00. We needed a clam chowder and clam cake fix as we have been away from Rhode Island for over a year, and we were not disappointed. The famous Rhode Island clam chowder, clear broth (not New England or Manhattan, although they were available also), was perfect, full of potatoes and clams and seasoned just right. The clam cakes were large and plump and cooked perfectly. I was very satisfied and the prices are reasonable. Servers are sociable and friendly. The interior is nothing to look at, but then again you are going for good home cooked food at reasonable prices and that is what you get here. It will be a repeat visit once I am in the area again.
