My wife and I had lunch there up one a recommendation of a local who lived 35 miles from Newport. When we walked past it was closed and did not look good. When we returned 30 minutes later it was opened and looked fine. It is a fish market, but did not smell fishey. I ordered the whole crab w/chowder. Both were outstanding! My wife, a light eater, ordered the crab melt which was outstanding. She had to order a cup of crowded after tasting mine. Great Place for Lunch.
