Barrington Restaurants & Nightlife

Some of our personal Favorites

Barrington is not exactly a nightlife “destination” among the East Bay. In fact, up until 2011, Barrington was the only “dry town” in Rhode Island (alcohol sales were prohibited outside of restaurants). That said, Barrington does have great places to eat. And there are plenty of bars in surrounding towns, including Warren, Bristol, Seekonk, and East Providence.

Food spots to check out:

Tong-D Restaurant

Tong D (ทองดี, Good as Gold) was established in Barrington, RI, back in 2009. With our exceptional team serving consistent and outstanding tasting food, we are glad to do our part in enhancing the reputation of Thai cuisine. 

Blue Kangaroo Cafe

The Blue Kangaroo Café is the perfect place for friends to meet and savor delicious, wholesome foods at affordable prices.

They’re open 7 days a week. Stop by to relax and enjoy great food and free wi-fi in the café, or grab a homemade meal or snack to go. They also offer catering for your office lunches, parties, or other gatherings.

The Food
They focus on providing natural, locally sourced foods. Their eggs and poultry come from Baffoni's Poultry Farm right here in Rhode Island, so they're as fresh as you can get. Their coffees and teas are all organic to let their natural flavor shine.

Their deli meats are always free of nitrates, sulfates, or other additives. You won't find ingredients with long chemical names; in fact, you won't find many added ingredients at all.

Bluewater Bar & Grill

With more than two decades of experience in the restaurant business, Chef Brian Thimme is combining his passion for locally sourced foods with his love of family to bring a unique style of contemporary cuisine to his newest restaurant concept, Bluewater. Building on his previous local venture, Stella Blues in Warren, Brian is creating a new family-friendly restaurant with a festive bar area and lively outdoor patio. Bluewater Bar and Grill offers an approachable menu with a contemporary flair, combining fresh, locally sourced ingredients with tried and true favorites for healthy, family-friendly dining.

Leon’s Cafe

If you are from Rhode Island, or worked in or near Providence, then you probably remember one of Federal Hill’s most popular Mediterranean bistros of all time: Leon’s On The West Side. After 21 years as owner and head chef, Bill Andrews closed Leon’s in 2001 to pursue his personal catering and music career. Later, he opened Caspita Mediterranean cafe in Exeter, RI and served as Chef Consultant for several well known restaurants. Chef Bill is known for bringing together his creative twists, and fondness for old-school diner food to create his eclectic mixtures of American, Mediterranean, Italian, Asian, and Tex–Mex cuisine.

Now, he has opened Leon’s Café & Catering, a friendly, local café, nestled in the quaint town of Barrington, in the heart of the East Bay. Besides his love of cooking, Bill loves music. He is a professional drummer & percussionist . His wife, Mary, is a professional singer. All three of his sons are musicians as well.
