I got taken here the first time I actually dined in Newport. It is a solid choice, there is a sun set view I believe. The crab cakes were wonderful. There are vegetarian choices which are great.

This restaurant was close to the Hyatt Regency where we were staying and didn't want to deal with going into Newport. We decided to try it even though there were very few tables occupied. We ordered the fried calamari which came with banana pickles which...More
