We popped in for restaurant week, as we had never been and what better time to try places out than Newport restaurant week! Had the marinated steak and it was melt in your mouth amazing...for a first time experience, they nailed it. We will definitely hit this location again when we are in the area!

We stopped here during Restaurant Week in November 2016 for lunch and everything was done nicely. Service was good, food was fresh and arrived hot and pricing was Newport like (NYC dining)> portion sizes were fine and be aware that most of the first floor is bar area so it fills up quickly and they have a dedicated dining room...

The bar is long and has many stools which is great for folks like me who would rather eat at the bar. The lunch offerings were many and the food was good. I will go back next time I am in Newport.

Late on the night we arrived, we were fortunate to find this place and be able to be seated. We were there during the boat show. We had a good experienced waitress who served us promptly and took our order. Our food arrived in a timely manner and was good.

We wanted to sit at the bar to eat but there was only one seat left. Alex the bartender, grabbed another chair from a table and put it on the end of the bar so we could both sit at the bar. All the bartenders were very friendly. We ordered the coconut shrimp and Caprese salad to split, the shrimp... More

We were here on a World Series game night with a big crowd. The bar had a pretty good selection of 'craft' beers (standard ales, winter brews, etc...) and there was competition for space at the upstairs bar. We came here last year and were treated to a pretty decent meal. Our past visit left a bit to be desired,... More

We came by for dinner on a week night, there were only 6 other occupied tables and a few folks at the bar. We thought they may have been a bit understaffed, or not deplyed well as it took a while for anyone to get to us for drink and then meal orders. Long wait for our meals and the... More

Very nice place - we stopped in for a drink and to catch a little of the game - bar tender was very friendly. Very nice inside - drinks were made perfectly - we didn't eat there but would definitely go back and try it out

We stopped into the Gas Lamp for dinner after a day of touring. We were seated quickly, our server arrived approximately 5 minutes later ready to take our drink order. I ordered the grilled salmon. My other guests ordered the Spicy NE clam chowder and a salad, and a pasta entree. The clam chowder was served in an oversized bowl... More
