Decent drinks and great view

A friend and I had some drinks and enjoyed the view. The drinks were priced well and the waitstaff was very attentive so we probably stayed longer than we initially intended because we were so comfortable!

Stopped in while walking around Nye Beach one afternoon. Had a couple of pints of Rogue's Dead Man on tap. A great way to spend an hour or two on a brisk, sunny weekend afternoon by the shore. Sat at the bar and chatted with a couple of folks from Vancouver, Washington. They were finishing off a pretty good sized... More

It's a little bar near the beach. Not well lit, just a regular bar. We didn't eat there, but we had drinks. I had a cider, he had a gin and tonic... They were fine. Nothing to rave about, nothing to complain about.

We had a bucket of steamed clams and some garlic bread, which we paired with some microbrew and wine. We ate in the bar, so I can not review the restaurant. The bar was down-home, friendly with good food. We would go back again the next time we are in Newport.

Ate on a very slow Monday night with the football game on even in the restaurant. This is a very laid back place where the locals go to eat, drink, and socialize. The cooks have been there for many years and have mastered the art of frying seafood. The bucket of mixed seafood was very good--non-greasy, not overly battered, crisp... More

This place calls itself a Sports Bar so went in on Saturday evening 9/20 to watch college football. With both local teams playing on TV it was from a patron standpoint expectedly busy. These games have been scheduled for that date with both having 7:30 start times for weeks so you would think they might anticipate it being busy and... More

My friend and her husband always go here on Tuesday night for the filet mignon special and she has even brought me all the way from Salem (well, we did do a spa day at Phagan's) to enjoy this special and both times it has been excellent. Tender cut of beef, great potato, and a nondescript salad. But for the... More

We sat upstairs, and it needs a good cleaning and some upkeep. The food was fine. My glass of beer had a fishy taste to it, like probably someone with fish on their hands had touched it. This was definitely not my favorite restaurant, but not the worst I've ever eaten in either. I'd suggest going elsewhere to eat when... More
