Open since 1966, the Pagoda Inn is one of Rhode Island's longest running Chinese food restaurants. In the past, the historical building had been an inn for weary travelers who rode their horses along Post Road. Some of the stone pillars they tied their horses to are still standing!
Eventually the building became a restaurant, called the Boxwood House, and years later it was bought and became the Pagoda Inn. (Although we can fill your belly, the Pagoda Inn is no longer an actual inn. Weary travelers may need to find somewhere else to sleep!)
The Pagoda Inn quickly became a town favorite!
It is now currently run by the Chan family, who have owned the Pagoda since 1993.
The perfect family dinner atmosphere. Kid friendly; not too casual and not too fancy!
We have two main dining rooms, and a full bar. The smaller dining room is often used for large or private parties. Each room offers booths for a comfier, more intimate setting.
Take a look around at our restaurant- we hope you'll like what you see!
