Our daughter is a local so she insisted we check this place out. We did a couple of times, in fact! Seafood needs to be prepared properly and they have it figured out precisely here. Fried clams, chowdah, scallops, haddock-- all delightful and delicious. Very generous portions. A real family... read more

My husband frequent this restaurant often. They are noted for their seafood, but they also have steak, chicken, etc. The quality of the food is very good and the prices are at par. Casual dining, the people are very friendly and their is plenty of parking spaces. You may have to wait a few minutes, but it's worth the wait.... More

I have eaten at the other Angler's locations and thought the fried seafood was pretty good but on this Saturday afternoon we were very disappointed in the Newport restaurant. Both my husband and I had the "minnow" fish and chips. The fish was crispy on the outside but there was a layer of grease under the crust and the french... More

I ate hear with the 2 year old son on Halloween. They offered kids eat free, great deal! Seafood here is good, but sometimes everything on the fish platter taste the same. This last visit I got the claim strips and they were great! My son had the fish and he loved the boat it came in...very cute! Overall great... More

You don't have to drive to the coast for good lobster. Great service and very friendly crew! Lovely end to our vacation. Mussels delicious and fried cams too.

My husband and I eat fried seafood platters only once or twice per year so we are very picky when choosing which restaurant to go to for our special treat. I have to say this was one of the best fried seafood meals we have had. The seafood was cooked to perfection and you cannot beat the Maine sea scallops.... More

My husband, sister and I stumbled in here after long flights into Bangor from TN and Chicago. We were looking for something easy and good and I used my trusty Trip Advisor app to find likely candidates. Since this looked easy to find off the interstate on our way to Clinton, we gave it a whirl. Now, I can be... More

The old log cabin restaurant in Newport, Maine has always been famous for it's large meals at reasonable prices. The new management (now Angler's) is carrying on the same tradition. I ordered the prime rib and it was huge and well cooked. My wife enjoyed the lobster salad. We even broke tradition and ordered pie. What a treat. The locals... More

This was my first visit to the Newport Angler's, which is in the location of the former Log Cabin Restaurant. Although our french fries were slightly undercooked (which was immediately remedied), the food here seems to be up to the same high standard of the Searsport and Hampden locations. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. It's so nice to... More
