A great Irish Dive Bar in downtown Newport. I actually went here twice. The food is your typical pub food, but all really good. Great selection and variety of beer. They also have two dart boards!

Stopped in for a beer (or 2). Had a nice vibe to the place. Bar staff friendly. Quiet mid-week but very busy Thursday on.

I visited here last night with my wife. The atmosphere was pleasant. The place was very crowded. Nice crowd of people. The staff was courteous and efficient. The bathrooms were very old but serviceable. Adequate selection of beer that was served quickly and was cold. I had a hamburger which was good, but nothing special. My wife had a Reuben... More

Stopped in for a drink with the wife. Not much attention from the staff. Ended up going to Buskers up the street for dinner. Not that impressed.

A little pricy on some of the beer but nice staff and cozy little pub. Rugby was on tv and there was a fire in a small wood stove. Enjoyed it

A real pub atmosphere with sidewalk tables and pool tables. The food was really good and priced right. I will definitely return here.

My family and I went to Newport just to walk around and enjoy an evening out. We got the cheeseburger, sirloin steak, and lobster rolls which were all very good. Our waitress was friendly and the outdoor seating was comfortable. However, because of its location, one needs to expect the food (along with all the other boutiques and restaurants) to... More

What a great find! We stayed at the Viking Hotel and wandered down here after visiting the Touro Synagogue. It is on a small restaurant street about two blocks long containing eight eateries one right next to the other. It was a very hot August day. We sat inside in the shade by the windows which were completely open and... More
