Narragansett, R.I. – Tuesday 7/13/2021 –This Friday, July 16, 2021 from 5pm to 7pm, George’s of Galilee will be unveiling the new Charlie O’s Tiki Tavern. Charlie Samaras, known as Charlie O, is very excited to resurrect the charm and hospitality that he brought to Charlie O’s when he first purchased it in 1990.
“I am so proud to be able to see my Charlie O’s sign on our tiki bar smiling down on me. That ensures that the memories will never go away.”, says Charlie Samaras, the founder and proprietor of the original Charlie O’s Tavern.
We were able to acquire the original sign of Charlie O’s Tavern and will be putting it to good use.
“George’s of Galilee and Charlie O’s have had a unique relationship”, says Kevin Durfee, owner of George’s of Galilee. “My father owned the building where the former Charlie O’s was located. My father ran a very successful bar called Barnaby’s Landing back in the late 70s and early 80s.”
George’s of Galilee has been fortunate enough to be able to offer its guests the option to sit at our beachside tiki bars while they wait for their table. ‘The waits are long but the tiki bars make the time fly”, says Pete Solomon, a loyal patron of George’s.
George’s of Galilee has been owned and operated by the Durfee family since 1948. It is one of the only independently run restaurants owned and operated by the same family in the state. We are proud to be part of Rhode Island history.
GEORGE’S is open all year long, daily at 11 am. In addition to the historicalsignature items, GEORGE’S offer dishes like our popular seafood pot pie, fish tacos, grilled bourbon glazed salmon, pan-seared sea scallops, slow-roasted prime rib and daily boat to plate specials.
George’s of Galilee, Eat Fish! Love Life!
