The ribs were fabulous.

The ribs were totally fabulous. Fish and chips were very good too. Quiet restaurant though. We were practically alone. Not sure why.

We ate at Rhea's twice in 4 days while on vacation. The first time we saw the outside and almost decided to drive away and find someplace else, but decided to go for it. Glad we did. Nice atmosphere. Clean. Attentive waitstaff. We had the fish & chips, chowder and Greek salad the first time-excellent. The second time we both... More

We wanted a quick breakfast before leaving Middletown/Newport. The two restaurants recommended to us--the Corner Cafe and the Spa--had long lines. So we turned around and stopped at Rhea's. We walked in and were seated immediately. The wait staff was kind, and the service was quick. Basic eggs, toast, and home fries cost $5; for $3 you can add your... More

The service was excellent and the food was even better. I had the ribs which were amazing and my nephew had the seafood platter which "was the best he had ever had."

This was one of the best meals we've had while visiting Newport / Middletown area! The tab was $74.52, so it was one of the cheapest we had here and we had 2 drinks a peice! We had excellent, fall off the bone baby back ribs as an appetizer, then shrimp and crab stuffed mushrooms, also as an appetizer, and... More

The service was very good (however there were not many filled tables when we were in there) but the food was just okay.

Went to Rhea's for dinner with my mom and we were so happy with our decision to go there! One person was doing the waitressing and bartending and she was excellent -- I wish I had gotten her name. My mom is a manhattan drinker and is very fussy about how they are made, and this young woman made it... More

Went for breakfast which was cooked to perfection. Husband had clam chowder which was one of the very best clam chowders we have ever tasted. I wanted to go back just for more but we ran out of time.

We visit Newport RI once a year and several years ago we discovered Rhea's when we stayed at her BnB. Breakfast was in the attached restaurant and since then no matter where we stay we start the day at Rhea's. This is first a family business and Rhea is often in the kitchen cooking your meal. There is a reasonably... More

I was a little disappointed by Rhea's. The food was ok, the service was ok and the atmosphere was just ok. Not a terrible place to go to eat, but I would look elsewhere if possible.
