We visit the newes every summer usually when we arrive on the island. I think they do a good job at what they do . It is a very casual restaurant which serves pub style food . It is inexpensive in comparison to most restaurants...More

This is a great place for reasonably priced pub food. Portions are satisfying. Service is good and prompt. Great place for a relaxed meal.

John does a great job in the kitchen, and it is a treat to just sit back and relax here. The tables are a little close together, but the pub food is reliably good, and the wait staff is seasoned and helpful.

The Newes is always fun. can get busy on summer nights and is more pub fare than fine dining. But the food is consistently good, the service is generally great and it is a fun location for a date night or with the family.

Waitress did not speak English. Gave me the wrong order. Gave an attitude when I told her. They couldn't give me chocolate milk. The bacon was undercooked when I asked for crispy. Said they didn't have bagels to substitutes however bagels were on the menu...More

Not a bright, beachy place. A dark, stone and wood, colonial feel. I love it. Enjoyed the chicken Caesar salad. Great selection of beers.

Mix with townies in a funny little hole-in-the-wall in the basement of the Kelly House. Consistently consistent pub fare, year 'round. Burger may be the best in town, ribs are finger-lickin' and the Rueben is really good. Cheap eats! I liked it!
