I'm stretching "my neck of the woods" a little today. I'm featuring a restaurant in Harrisville, Rhode Island. It's called Wright's Farm Restaurant. I have been to this restaurant probably a dozen times over the past 40 years. It is located in the northwest corner of Rhode Island at 84 Inman Road. The one thing you can count on at this place is consistency; as I said, I've been there maybe a dozen times with sometimes 4 or 5 years between visits, yet the meal is always the same, always fresh, always delicious. I would visit much more often, but it's about 2 hours from my house! (Yet there have been a couple of times when we've actually just driven there for lunch!)
The place is huge! There are two bars and lounges, should you have to wait for a table. The day we were there, the New England Patriots had a home game, and the waitress said that always decreases their customer count. We were seated immediately. From the looks of the parking lot, not everyone was at the Patriots' game!
If you are looking for variety, this is not the place for you. They serve one meal, and do it with perfection. Food is served family style--they bring bowls to the table, and keep bringing them until you cry, "Uncle!" because you are full. No one needs to leave Wright's Farm hungry!
(I apologize that the photos aren't clearer....I guess I was hurrying because I was hungry and couldn't wait to dig in!) We started with tossed salad with Writght's own Italian dressing.
Wonderful homemade rolls with butter!
Pasta shells with the delicious house marinara sauce--yummy!
And lots of succulent baked chicken, both breasts and legs. There's no waiting. Because that's the only meal on the menu, the kitchen just keeps putting it out there, and your food is brought to your table almost immediately.
This chicken border is in all the dining rooms, and there's also a huge gift shop on the premises!
This New England Patriot meets you at the door of the gift shop. The day we were there, they were having a special fudge sale. Buy a pound and get a quarter pound free! How could I resist such a deal? We had some chocolate walnut, penuche walnut, and chocolate peanut butter--all of which were to die for! I think the penuche was my favorite, even though I love chocolate dearly. It was just that good!
Sadly, we said goodbye to Wrights, until the next time. You may want to visit their website to learn more about them--it's Wrights Farm Restaurant.
