Good good!

We visited on a Friday night. Sat at the bar for dinner and drinks. Shared the Cobb salad to start and then had the bouillabaisse. Everything was excellent! Bar even had entertainment. Bartenders were friendly.

The restaurant is being sold and the new owners want to turn it into an event center so it will only be open this summer and maybe fall. It has lots of space, an outdoor bar and beach volleyball area, and some of the best seafood in town. The ambiance is good for small parties, or even parties of 20,... More

This location was recommended by our daughter who had dinner here with my son-in-law. The location is right on the beach where the views of the Mansions are visible across the bay. The best part of the restaurant is that is has a

We come to newport once or twice a year and we always come to this place. It's a restaurant on the beach that gets packed during the summer. I always recommend sitting outside if you can get a seat. Obviously you need to get the seafood here. The mussels and clams are amazing here (caught fresh from what I'm told).... More

Been many times. The restaurant is on the beach. Very lovely with good food and a nice bar. It has been sold so this is the last year it will be open - it is becoming a banquet facility - so do go there - you won't be disappointed!

Very disappointed in the brunch on Mother's Day. First off, the scrambled eggs and bacon were so salty (and I love salt) that I couldn't even finish them. They did not offer an omelette station, homemade waffles or even home-fries! What the heck has happened? Instead they offered what looked like the frozen version of french toast "sticks." They ran...

We went to the Atlantic Beach Club on Sunday the 3rd of May 2015 for lunch it was a lovely day but a little windy. There was eight of us and we sat out in the marquee area we all had starters, mains, and some had pudding. The service was very good and the menu was varied. I had the... More

I think the chicken stock they use has msg as an ingredient. I got sick after eating here with a major headache and numbness, the same things I used to get after eating foods with msg. The chicken stock is in the chowder and other things. They say they can make things gluten free but I would be very careful.... More
