Black Pearl is the perfect lunch stop while tooling around the Newport waterfront. We were told their clam chowder was the best in Newport, and it certainly hit the spot on a cold November Saturday. The lobster salad was also terrific.

We were told by former R.I residents we HAD to have the clam chowder here. My wife and I stopped by for lunch and ordered the chowder and thought it was good but certainly not the best we have had. I wouldn't make a special trip.

I found out that the Black Pearl is known for their chowder, it is not something I would usually order; however, I gave it a try. I am so glad I did! It was a cold afternoon and we just finished the Cliff Walk, it felt so good to go in to a warm place and get a delicious bowl of chowder.

O M G. Recommended by a local. Came for late lunch. 2 of us had the clam chowder. I'm not a chowder fan, but it smelled soo good. Tasted better than good, a must have. Chicken pot pie was yummy. Good size portion in a crock. Crust was thin but really flaky. Grilled swordfish sandwich all good choices.
