Good Food, Great View

My wife and I make it a point to dine at Newport Shores at least once each time we visit family in Port Washington. Situated right on Lake Michigan, it offers a fantastic view during the daytime hours. It's also a favorite spot for many of the locals. The food has always been very good... read more

My absolutely favorite place. The food , the atmosphere, service and people are all outstanding. Went with a group of friends and sat at the table pretty long but we never felt rushed and the staff was so accommodating.

I had a fried fish itch to scratch so I headed into Newport Shores. Not the "hippest" crowd on the earth but the menu looked right as well as the nice view into the lake. Lots of fish on the menu and several specials that sounded good. But I was here for some fried fish and crappie was on special.... More

The food has always been very good, particularly the Fried Haddock.

Very good food simply presented but very high quality. Excellent fish fry, burgers are top notch, fresh ground beef full half a pound. Nice views of the water. Service is very friendly. Owner, John is around quite a bit and enjoys meeting with his customers and not above clearing a table. All in all good casual dinning

I am envious of this place's location. It has a potential to be something truly amazing. Anything from Pirate's Booty theme to something that would fit in nicely with an outdoorsy place with a magnificent view. Unfortunately it missed the mark on so many levels. From the inside, it can definitely use a few updates. The place looks run down,... More

I went here with my girlfriend and her parents. We all wanted to try this place and that was no mistake. Her parents ordered fish sandwiches while my girlfriend and I had chicken sandwiches. I can say that without a doubt it was one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten. The chicken was juicy yet crispy with the breading... More
