Bartender was great and did amazing with the constant flow of the St Patricks Day party crowd. We loved the drinks and the buffalo chicken flatbread. We stayed for hours and walked back to the hotel Viking. Fantastic place to hang out and not stuffy. Local pub and eats. Great prices and specials.

My husband and i stopped here over the weekend. The food was okay...nothing amazing. My husband had the chili which he said was good but a bit sweet which maybe isn't our thing. I had the lobster bisque which was good but really smooth like it was ran through a blender. The place was packed so maybe we just ordered... More

Passing another restaurant with an hour and a half wait, we walked right into the Gas Light. We were greated and seated promptly. Our drink and food order was taken promptly. A wonderful seared Ahi Tuna appetizer was served followed by steak and lobster salad Surf and Turf main dish. One appetizer and one main dish was more than enough... More

We popped in for restaurant week, as we had never been and what better time to try places out than Newport restaurant week! Had the marinated steak and it was melt in your mouth amazing...for a first time experience, they nailed it. We will definitely hit this location again when we are in the area!

We stopped here during Restaurant Week in November 2016 for lunch and everything was done nicely. Service was good, food was fresh and arrived hot and pricing was Newport like (NYC dining)> portion sizes were fine and be aware that most of the first floor is bar area so it fills up quickly and they have a dedicated dining room...

The bar is long and has many stools which is great for folks like me who would rather eat at the bar. The lunch offerings were many and the food was good. I will go back next time I am in Newport.

Late on the night we arrived, we were fortunate to find this place and be able to be seated. We were there during the boat show. We had a good experienced waitress who served us promptly and took our order. Our food arrived in a timely manner and was good.

We wanted to sit at the bar to eat but there was only one seat left. Alex the bartender, grabbed another chair from a table and put it on the end of the bar so we could both sit at the bar. All the bartenders were very friendly. We ordered the coconut shrimp and Caprese salad to split, the shrimp... More

We were here on a World Series game night with a big crowd. The bar had a pretty good selection of 'craft' beers (standard ales, winter brews, etc...) and there was competition for space at the upstairs bar. We came here last year and were treated to a pretty decent meal. Our past visit left a bit to be desired,... More
