Came here as a group so got to see and hear about the different plates some folks got. I had the stuffed shrimp and thought it would be stuffed with crab like even the sorry fish restaurants back home have, but no, just a soggy...More

We just ate there last week. The food was super good. We got there just as they opened. 1/2 price appetizers. It’s beautiful right on the water. A bit pricey but for the area normal.

Prime location in the heart of Newport, RI, with it's location being right on the pier. I highly recommend dining outside, as the view is gorgeous, there is always music playing and you always have a nice, subtle, summertime breeze blowing through your hair.. It...More

The restaurant is terrible. We wait long ling time for 2 salads. The salad with 4 shrimps cost 22 bucks and this is the cheapest one. The wine is cheap wine. This by default is the worst restaurant at Newport.

I had amazing food here a couple years back so I thought I would try it again. I should have tried a different place instead. I ordered lobster and then the kitchen had run out but forgot to update the computer. Then they said they...More
