Dark and cool atmosphere and lighting. Cocktail list was good- but nothing that really caught us and made us want to offer- I was looking forward to ordering something off of it but ended up with a dirty martini as nothing grabbed me....I'm used to...More

Although I usually eat seafood in Newport, the rave reviews for this restaurant drew me in. My son and I came midweek for an early dinner, both eager for what sounded like delicious ribs. Unfortunately, we were both very disappointed. The ribs were almost grey...More

My husband, baby, and I dined here during Folk Festival weekend. The burger was delicious! The staff was friendly. We even left a kid toy there and the owner shipped it back to us! That's great customer service. Highly recommend for a delicious dinner and...More

We were a large party of 8. We were seated promptly and the service never faulted even with our large party. The menu is varied. Something for everyone and everything that was ordered was spot on. The pork belly lettuce (BLT) wraps were the highlight...More

We went here on a Monday night! Wow! We were so surprised to hear a wonderful Blues band! Such a great spot, beautiful bar, great service, friendly patrons and yummy cocktails! We did not eat here but the food looked great!

I had a cider and fries at the bar and this night they had a 4 piece jazz band that you could listen to (as they were really good) or talk (so the band wasn't dominant which was great).

Four of us visited for Sunday "brunch". There is a slightly limited menu, no buffet. There was something for everyone. Pros: - Hostess - readily available, helpful and working hard, not simply seating people - Side Buddies: a great way to refer to salad additions...More
