Suffice it to say that I was there as a young journalist covering the Newport Jazz Festival the year of the riot (you'll have to Google it if you want to know more).

This is a great location to sit back and enjoy a bite to eat and cocktail. Located on the beach with a great view of the ocean and the cliffwalk.

Figured we better stop in & have one last meal since the local newspaper stated it was closing after Labor Day. ABC as it is known locally will be transformed into a wedding only venue in the new year. The menu is very large with many great choices. I ordered the baked stuffed shrimp & my spouse ordered the surf... More

The best clam chowder I think I have ever had! Very busy place, but we were seated within 1/2 hour. Walter, our waiter,was quick,funny,and amazingly efficient for a table of seven to please. He did it with ease. Food was very, very good.

We went a few times at lunch and dinner- the view from this restaurant was outstanding. Food was fair- but definitely the view made everything marvelous without doubt. Chowder was a bit salty, pasta was a bit over cooked, but veggies were nicely cooked. People were very friendly. Clean and well decorated beach side restaurant. The music (sometimes live) was...

They have indoor seating which requires a reservation. They have outside covered patio which uses the indoor menu and wait staff. Seating is first come first serve. They have outside... More

Hard to imagine a more discouraging dining experience. The "chicken piccata" had no lemon or capers and the wait staff coul have cared less! Seriously, mashed potatoes rather than pasta to accompany the pitiful piccata. All-in-all a terrible dining experience.

We are traveling with a tour...40 people so the restaurant had choice of steak, chicken and scrod. The wait staff did a good job with moving the meal along and they were all very pleasant. Scrod something we've not experienced was,a,tastynwhitenfish with chunks of shrimp and scallops, pretty good stuff.
