Arrived for a midweek lunch around 12:00. Quickly seated and waited on immediately. Very nice. The menu is huge with ample lunch selections of all types. There is a different menu for gluten free so ask for it. Had grilled chicken sandwich with spinach and artichoke. Reallly good. Will definitely return.

Enjoyed our lunch here. We tried their chowder, little neck clams, scallops. All were prepared well and tasted great. The whiskey drink was mixed a little light. But, the Jalapeno Margarita was wonderful. Just the right amount of jalapeno taste and not too tart. The restaurant was fairly crowded when we were there, so I guess it is a popular... More

Always a stop in Newport at least for one drink. There are plenty of food choices too. My most resent stop was this fall for lunch. Obviously not as crowded as it is in the summer so seating was quick. We both had a really delicious and filling salad along with a few RI beers. Pleasant and attentive waiter.

It was a great way to spend done time on a rainy afternoon. The bar staff is friendly but not intrusive. It's a busy bar but you never seem to have to try to get the staff's attention. They let us try a wine we weren't familiar with before ordering. The patrons were very pleasant and friendly also. If we... More

Had an assortment of 3 appetizers last night with a couple of the excellent local brews on tap. Everything was excellent and in generous servings. We had the peanut butter and chocolate pie on ice cream and at least 4 tables laughed seeing the waitress carry the humongous goblet of deliciousness out to us. Great place.

visited on Friday, November 25, 2016 for dinner with another couple. The restaurant was very busy. We were seated immediately, and our waitress Monique was right there getting our drink order... Drinks were delivered almost instantly. Monique took our food order, which also was brought piping hot in a timely manner. She was very attentive and joked around with us..... More
