Great family restaurant! Service was right on and they offer a great selection of fresh fish. I would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for family night out. PCUSA rating: B+

Dinner for six on Sunday night. Very good! ALL six meals. Nice ambiance and wonderful wait staff. No outside dining in February (obviously) but still great views. Probably my 20th meal here.

We had a nice late lunch on a cold winter day. We could get a table with a harbor view. Service was nice and quick. Food was good quality but clearly aimed for the tourist crowd.

Very nice nautical themed restaurant with high quality food that is positioned right on the water looking out at Newport Harbor. Bar and dining rooms are among the best in Newport.

Great Question, I guess I do not know since I never tell anyone how old or when my birthday is. Truth be told I usually forget the date. LOL
