The seafood destination enters its first weekend of the new season. Patch went into Evelyn's kitchen to see the fried clams and lobster rolls up close.
When seafood enthusiasts from all over the world visit the Ocean State, Tiverton's Evelyn's Drive-In is a top destination, overlooking the tranquil waters of Nanaquaket Pond. They enter their 40th year of business, going into the first weekend of the new season.

"We've been blessed," said Jane, citing all the media attention they've received over the years, including a visit from the Food Network. "It's been good for us. People always get excited to come back here." The restaurant has a couple of well-trusted vendors, Jane said. They get their fish from Bridgeport Seafood up the road and…

Sometimes following your heart can help more than just yourself. Jane Bitto found a way to follow her passion while helping her community.
It all started with a class. Jane Bitto, co-owner of Evelyn’s Drive-In, took a course titled Self Expression in Leadership. One of her assignments was to create a plan to “do anything you want to do to help the community”. Jane expressed a love of music and sharing it with the community, so it only seemed natural that her project would entail music. With inspiration from her class assignment, Jane thought of Sing Out Against Hunger (SOAH). SOAH is a musical fundraising event to support local food pantries. The first event took place in 2003. Jane said each year it has continued to grow. This year they have 35 performances and added an extra day. Some notable acts are Pumpkin Head Ted, Red Eye Flight, The Kim Lamothe Tree-Oh, Christopher …
