First time visit to Newport and dined at Fluke. So glad we found it. Wine and service were great! We each had 2 small plates as our dinner which was very substantial. Table overlooked the wharf. Highly recommend this dining spot!

Parking can be tricky - so allow a few extra minutes. Bowens Wharf has a small paid lot, there is another paid lot close by in front of the Mooring restaurant or street parking (meters take credit cards)
