Our Favorite Providence Restaurants

Our Favorite Providence Restaurants

Like the city of Rome, Providence is surrounded by seven hills but the two best known are Federal Hill and College Hill, which is where you'll find some of the city's best restaurants. 

On Federal Hill the Cassarino's on Atwells Ave is a favorite Italian bistro featuring authentic Tuscan cuisine in a warm and lively atmosphere. Another favorite of ours is Hemenway's Seafood Grill on College hill which features creative Mediterranean cuisine, homemade pastas, breads and tapas. Also on College hill is Mill's Tavern, an american and french restaurant featuring upscale seafood and wood grilled dishes set in a warm colonial tavern atmosphere.

So come stay with us at the Christopher Dodge House, a wonderful and charming alternative to conventional Providence hotels, and let us make your dinner reservations at some of the best cuisine Providence has to offer.

Pawsox Baseball



What do Ted Williams, Curt Schilling, Jason Varitek, Jim Rice, Manny Ramirez, Wade Boggs and Roger Clemens all have in common?

They all played for the Pawtucket Red Sox, just minutes from the Inn, before they made their mark in the big leagues for the Boston Red Sox. The Pawsox at McCoy stadium offer a wonderful baseball experience for a fraction of the big league price and you may very well see some future baseball all-star, pitch a no hitter or hit a home run. It's a great way to spend a Summer afternoon or evening here in Providence along with the many fine restaurants Providence has to offer.


Let's play ball!
