Indian pudding, a stout samp of long-baked cornmeal and molasses, is a traditional Yankee shoreline dessert. A la mode is the only way to go.

Fish and chips is just one course in a shore dinner. Before it come clam chowder and clam cakes, then steamers. After that comes the whole lobster and, finally, Indian pudding or rhubarb pie.

Aunt Carrie's is known for great homemade pies. Here is rhubarb -- a very nice balance of sweet and tart.

This 1-1/2 pound lobster was part of a shore dinner. We like the way it arrives holding napkins in its claw.

Our young waitress was enthusiastic about all the places we were eating at around Rhode Island and even made some suggestions.  Sounds like a Roadfooder to us!

While it is supremely casual, there is something polite about this old shore dinner hall, as seen in these lacy curtains.

Aunt Carrie's started as a clam cake and chowder stand on Narragansett Beach in 1920.
