Nice light dinner in the outside wine bar

The wine bar light meals were just what we needed on our first night in Newport after a day driving and touristing from New York. We were not looking for a big night out, just a quick light meal. Good wines by the glass. Service efficient. The wine bar serves a limited menu from the... read more

Drinks and lobster fritters all day please. These were really delicious. Awesome specialty drinks to choose from and good portions of food to go around. It's right on the water so views are perfect.

I had very high expectation for this place, but it went beyond it! Classy setting with a beautiful view, very tasty meal (although I had to substitute one of the ingredients which was carefully accommodated by the head chef), all accompanied by EXCELLENT and swift service. Thank you!

My friend and I had lunch on a Saturday. We both started with the clam chowder, which was pretty good. We both had a nice glass of Pinot Grigio. My friend had a crab cake and I ordered a lobster roll. The lobster meat was very good, but the bread was stale. I wouldn't have been so disappointed, but the... More

22B is an excellent Newport spot. It's not cheap by any means but the food and service are superior. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. We started with drinks and the white Sangria was outstanding. The "wedge" salad was terrific as was the chowder. The seafood steaks ordered ala carte were grilled to order, delicious, and the portions were generous. We... More

Just returned from a long weekend in Newport, RI and we had a great meal and night here. Very accommodating for three adults and one child. Our server was terrific! The food was fabulous and we all agreed that this meal was the best meal that we've had in a very long time. Yummy drinks, fabulous appetizers, salads and entrees!... More

OMG! The fish and chips were to die for. The fish was so fresh as was the cole slaw. The waiter (I wish I got his name) was awesome and charming.

This is one of our favorites in Newport. We seem to return often because of the quality of the food, service and atmosphere. On a recent visit, our server was knowledgeable and attentive without being obtrusive. We loved the raw oysters as an appetizer. Both the lamb sirloin and the veal chop were excellent and perfectly cooked. The wine we... More

My husband and I have been to 22 Bowen's a couple of times and both experiences have been great. It's expensive, but I think pretty much in line with any steakhouse. Great service and delicious food both times. We were disappointed when they took our favorite appetizer off the menu (seared feta), and instead we went with lobster and corn... More

We sat at the bar and the weather was beautiful, so that helped! The drinks were excellent and the Lobster & Corn Fritters were amazing!
