Why? Because we had a long day cruising the harbor and didn't feel like dining in a fabulous Newport restaurant. Above par service and pretty good food. Family especially liked the lettuce wraps.

My family only gets one thing here because it's so delicious - the House Chicken. Small portions for the $ but a great taste treat!

Why eat at Pick Up Sticks in an area with some of the best restaurants in the world absolutely everywhere? We made the mistake of going to this particular one, and had the worst food we've ever paid for. Used to be a fan of the chain when I was younger, but that stopped being the case after a visit...
