The incredible effort at interior decorating is probably the first thing that will catch the eye of a new visitor, and you'll stay for the reasonably priced food and drinks. If you're in Newport in the summer do not expect to pay very little for...More

I had a fabulous time here. We had great waitstaff. The lobster club was great. My mom loved her sandwich but thought the portions were huge. Decor is really fun with an old fashioned fire engine parked inside and old signs and posters displayed.

I would say yes! They have a large room on the back and rooms upstairs as well. I would request the back one if they can accommodate you as it would be easier access to salad bar and people in your party won't have to take... More
