In 1989, Gaetano and Sally Gravino bought Gus's beach stand in Warwick, which had been in operation since 1924, and…More founded Iggy's Doughboys & Chowder House. Since then, the Gravino Famly has continued to offer great food at reasonable prices, and Iggy's has endured as a Rhode Island favorite.
In 2000 the Gravinos opened Iggy's second location in Narragansett, and operate it seasonally, from April to October. Customers order at the window outside and can eat in one of two dining areas, either inside or outside. There is also the option of taking food to one of the two popular beaches nearby, Scarborough Beach and Oakland Beach.

Wicks N Sticks is a chain carrying fragrant soy-based candles and melts. This Narragansett location carries a variety of beautiful glass jar candles, tea lights, melts and oil diffusers. Many fragrances are available, and these soy candles are all natural, environmentally friendly and burn longer and cleaner than wax candles.
Wicks N Sticks is a seasonal shop and is open from Memorial Day until late September.

As part of the Salty Brine Beach bath house,…More it is essentially on the beach, and has an outside seating area that offers outstanding views of Narragansett Bay, as well as a front-row seat to the Block Island Ferry as it transports tourists between the island and Point Judith. But it's not just location, location, location: Salty's Landing, which opened in May 2010, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner - or a quick bite between meals - concession-style and at great prices.
Owner Dan Murphy is hands-on and accommodating, and takes pride in using as many local vendors as possible. You'll find clam cakes, chowder, fish & chips and handmade stuffies on the menu, as well as other standard beach stand fare like burgers, sandwiches and fried items. Breakfast dishes include eggs, French toast and muffins. Salty's Landing also serves Baby Elliott's frozen lemonade for a cold treat to enjoy as you take in the view.
