Champlin’s Seafood Deck is located at the entrance to Galilee Harbor, home of Rhode Island’s largest fishing fleet. Enjoy your favorite seafood dish on our spacious deck or in our channel view lounge and watch local fishermen unload their daily lobster and fish catch. Fresh dayboat scallops, world famous Pt. Judith squid, pristine Block Island swordfish…it all comes across our docks. Our unique position in the harbor means that we are proud to serve the finest seafood available in Rhode Island.
We’re pleased to now offer an impressive raw bar selection, including several varieties of local oysters, native hardshell clams, cooked jumbo shrimp and crab legs and more! While your meal is being prepared, visit the raw bar and our newly remodeled and extended cocktail bar, an area of the restaurant that offers an amazing panoramic view of a quintessential working New England fishing port. We make your favorite drinks just the way you like them, from Amanda’s fantastic Bloody Marys to frozen specialties like margaritas and mudslides. Our brand new, eight-tap draft system sports ice cold Narragansett Beer (a local old-school favorite) along with other satisfying selections.
Champlin’s Seafood Deck now hosts party functions! From bridal showers to sports banquets to business meetings, family reunions to wedding rehearsals to holiday gatherings, let us do the work for you! With our expanded kitchen, we can now offer you different specialty meal choices, along with our can’t-be-beat setting. Call and ask for our kitchen manager Amanda for details. *Sorry, we cannot book parties during the summer months
