My husband and I stopped in for lunch. I ordered a hamburger with fries and my husband had the slaw with his burger. The taste of the burger was amazing!! Our waitress was Jennifer and she was very attentive. Bought gift card for son and wife for their anniversary. Can't wait to return

Food quality & service are consistently very good. No corkage fee on the 1st bottle of wine. The only complaint I have is the scanty menu selection. The crab cake is outstanding with little hint of filler. Do realize that a Ben Franklin does not go far here. This place is very noisy , try reserve a table farthest from... More

I had dinner with my family there. I was the only one who had oysters. The fish dishes were lovely, the atmosphere very nice, but the oysters taste awful & few hours laters I suffered severe diarrhea. Thanks to my emergency kit that had intestinal antibiotics that saved me.

Food was very tasty however it is a very "Newport" atmosphere which I didn't really enjoy. It was a business lunch so it was fine. Again the food was good just wouldn't be my first choice.

My husband and I came here for lunch as we do often and we chose 3 items all off the menu and were told they were out. All were fish and they are know for their fish. Extremely disappointing and ridiculous.

This is definitely a higher end restaurant. :Like most restaurants in Newport. We went around 4:30 and they still had their limited lunch menu in place. My wife had the salmon and I had the chicken. The chicken may had been the best chicken I have ever had. The drinks as usual were really expensive as most places ( wine... More

The ambiance is comforting. I think all the wood makes the place warmer and better with acoustics. I love their smoked trout dip. The ahi tuna burger is FABULOUS!! I love the chop salad with rotisserie chicken. It is not a traditional salad. There is no lettuce just chopped vegetables and this great light dressing. During the winter I love... More
