Pretty darn good Sam Adams Fried Fish

We had the Sam Adams fried fish and fried shrimp. Pretty darn good!! Coke slaw and hush puppies were yummy too! It was overcast but there is a great view of the water too.

good view but over priced for what you get. we had the Fisherman Platter and was told "its a lot of food"...couple small pieces of fish, couple of shrimp and small scallops and under-cooked french fries. Slaw and bread was good. Over priced.

Food was really good. I would go back. 4 stars because we ordered my daughter a goldfish sundae when we ordered the food and the never brought it out. We asked several people several times to bring it and they never did. But we enjoyed it otherwise.

We visited this place on new years eve after a trip to the Newport Aquarium. The service was a bit slow but well worth the wait. One in the group has a shellfish allergy, and the Chef came out to discuss it before taking the order himself. The food was well prepared and the service was good, but could have... More

I was really excited about eating here, it looked wonderful, but the food was a huge disappointment. The view however was gorgeous.

The food was great ! My veggies came out cold and the server quickly replaced them with some fresh, hot ones. Parking and finding our way to the restaurant was a challenge. We were 5 minutes late for our reservation. We won't hold that against the restaurant though. lol

Had pretty good food. I'd go back but only like a date night or parents night out. More than two people could get pricey. Service was a little slow but we had a nice view of passerby's so that made the wait better. You should at least give it a try. Nice date place.

As a Louisiana native, I have pretty high seafood standards. The crab and artichoke appetizer was very good. Our entrees were a little disappointing. My scallops were overlooked and a little rubbery and my husband's crab stuffed shrimp were just average. Ambiance and service were very good.

I've been talking to this guy for a month now. We met on Christmas Day and were able to enjoy a meal together here at Mitchell's Fish Market. Even though we did not make a reservation we were able to grab a drink at the bar and seated close to the amount of time quoted. They were packed!! The meal... More

We were in the area for a week. Visiting the Newport aquarium we were looking for someplace to eat. It's called a fish market so we didn't realize it was a restaurant until we walked in. We ate lunch. For two adults and three kids our bill was 80.00 plus tip. That is one drink and one lunch entree each.... More
