Spend a Moment at … O’Rourkes Bar and Grill

O’Rourkes Bar and Grill

23 Peck Lane, Warwick, Rhode Island

Situated in picturesque Pawtuxet Village, O’Rourkes Bar and Grill has all the ingredients for an ideal summer afternoon: two outdoor patios, string lights, live music and a menu with all the fixings. Its showstopper? The mega-stuffed and always delicious lobster roll served on a garlic encrusted roll.

While O’Rourkes opened its doors in 2005, they’re keen to remember and honor the history of their location, both in the building itself and in the village where it sits. Originally part of the Sononoce Pawtuxet tribe, Pawtuxet Village is known for the burning of the HMS Gaspee, which ultimately catalyzed the beginning of the American Revolution. The historic building where O’Rourkes resides was built in the 1890’s and has seen many storefronts since then, including a grocery store, a tavern and a lounge.

Taking a seat at either of the idyllic outdoor patios offers beautiful views of the village and the Pawtuxet River. Watch sailboats come and go as you enjoy a lobster roll with a cocktail from their refreshing seasonal drink menu, or opt for other Rhode Island favorites like stuffed quahogs, chowder and fish and chips.
