Stopped in for a drink and a quick bite. Locals place but very accommodating to a couple of tourists. Had the shed iPa from Vermont. Very good. However, the bahn mi sandwich was absolutely fantastic! Slow simmered shredded pork,chicken liver mousse, marinated vegetables and cilantro on a crispy baguette. Great blues playing in the background. Can't wait to go back.

Great spot a little off the beaten path for burger and a beer. Good beer selections. Food is fast, fresh, and delicious! Small place with a laid back atmosphere.

We were in Newport celebrating anniversary #26 and a server in another restaurant recommended this bar/restaurant - super cute, great service. The owner and fiance were there and congratulated us and bought us a round - not needed but a sweet touch. We shared a meal as had eaten lunch earlier - but wanted to try it for future knowledge...

We wandered in on a Monday night (June 29, 2015) looking for a bar spot for a drink...bar was mostly full, but plenty of open tables in the joint. We picked a spot near the window, and the bartender came out & asked if we were going to eat..when we said no, just looking for drinks, he told us we... More

Business trip w/ 3 other guys. Bar atmosphere with surprisingly very good food. We started with the clam app. I had Portuguese style; was very good. We all had the special steak and they were fantastic. Cooked as ordered. Cost 21.00. Easily a 40.00 steak in a fancy restaurant. Beer menu is excellent with some odd selections. Staff were all...

Pour Judgement is a throw back to earlier days. One long bar, and side tables add to the atmosphere that brings you back in time to the 50's or 60's. Noisey ----- you bet! Good Pub fare----- you bet! Great selection of beers (lots of IPA choices) You really don't expect a neighborhood pub to offer such good food, but,... More
