Love this spot, especially if the weather is good and you can eat outside. Live bands from time to time, service is pretty good- food is quick and the fish and chips is delicious! We always visit while in Newport.

It was just average...nothing special to mention. Food was just O.K. This is not a restaurant we would make a second visit to.

They've changed their hours and menu at the restaurant without changing their website. Very confusing and frustrating. Management and staff don't seem to know what they're doing.

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.
