It is 6:30 on an early autumn evening and the tables are already filling up at Buttonwoods Fish & Chips in Warwick. The setting sun casts a soft amber glow across the room as diners filter in, some regulars who are greeted by name and others who are eager to know what it is about this cozy, bistro-style restaurant that people are always talking about. People like Rick and Sue Lemieux, Paul and Phyllis Bloom and Al and Angela Martinelli who come here as often as they can – breakfast, lunch or dinner. They come here to linger over a bottle of wine, swap stories of their lives and reminisce about the days they cheered on their sons together in Little League. But mostly, they come for the food and the hospitality. This is a place where “good food, good friends & good times” are dependable as an early autumn sunset.
Buttonwoods Fish & Chips is an intimate and homey restaurant found off of well-travelled Buttonwoods Avenue. It is extremely popular with the locals, but has gained the attention of diners across the region who have learned of its first-rate food, exceptional service and pure, hometown goodness. Owners Jackie and Tony Fiore, who opened Buttonwoods over ten years ago, have devoted all their energy and dedication to the many customers who continue to make this best-kept secret in Warwick so successful – and so busy every day!
Many may know Buttonwoods for their delicious, wholesome breakfasts. Every egg dish is made to order, every pancake is light and fluffy, every bowl of oatmeal is hot and creamy, and every waffle is drenched in syrup and piled with fresh fruit. Many also love to come to Buttonwoods for their lunches – seasonal salads, hot and cold sandwiches, juicy burgers and bowls of soup to fill any craving.
What many may NOT know about Buttonwoods is what the Lemieux’s, Bloom’s and Martinelli’s already know – that Buttonwoods Fish & Chips is the ultimate destination for DINNER! Served on Friday nights only, the dinner menu here is always varied and always filling. Rick and Sue agree that “the clam cakes and chowder are the best”, but the restaurant’s golden Fish & Chips are simply unbeatable. Dinner options include both traditional Italian dishes and popular “comfort foods” like Meatloaf, Shepard’s Pie and Chicken Cordon Bleu, as well as Tony’s unforgettable Friday Night Specials. Buttonwoods is BYOB, so bring your favorite bottle, settle in for the night and enjoy a truly memorable culinary experience.
