This was one of the best times I ever had. Dinner on the deck as the sun went down. Lobster roll was fantastic. Right on the water! Sit on the deck. Service was good. Tight tables, good drinks. Fun time.

Right on the water in Newport this is a great spot. Excellent views of the harbour and a fun, lively vibe. Sitting in the sun, soaking in the view with a bottle of wine--very tough to beat! Enjoyed the (cold) lobster roll which was a large portion of properly cooked lobster with the perfect amount of mayo, some nice dill... More

recommend the oyster shots washed down with chilli vodka. Very rustic as a working lobster hut. Cocktail choices were great and staff were extremely friendly.

If you are lucky, you can sit outside on the deck here and enjoy the bay. The food is not very good. The clam chowder was weirdly flavored, and the lobster was over cooked. Beware of the lobster fritters; they are mostly bread and corn. One of us had the fish sandwich and said it was ok. The staff are... More

VIEW: you are literally on a wharf on the water. Amazing view of all the boats and sunset. DRINKS Great bloodies, great Bonrock FOOD tuna appetizer and lobster roll is good. Entrees are pricy but good.

Good location, good quality food at a reasonable price. It's basic furniture and way of serving the food, was just fine by me for lunch.

We had looked this place over from the front with its working lobster storage areas and what looked like a long queue - at first we browsed elsewhere, but came back and we are so glad that we did... The queue was in fact very fast moving and we were super-pleased to be given a table on the outside deck... More

Great location right on the dock. Friendly service, but the lobster rolls needed a bit of pop. Enjoyed watching the boats go in and out of the harbor.

The outside looks shabby but the inside & the food is far from it. We were seated outside & had a lovely view of the harbour by night. My husband had the lobster burger with fries & it was so juicy you could see the juice running into his plate. Unfortunately I had to have the chicken roll because I... More

We stopped for lunch during a walk around the Newport harbor area. The raw bar was wonderful and we had lobster rolls. I do not like my lobster rolls with mayo and they had a choice of lobster salad or sautéed in butter. I chose the sautéed. It was excellent. All in our party of 4 were very impressed. The... More
