Excellent food. Great service. Try the kale salad which is very flavorful. Scallop small plate is perfect. We also voted this best lobster roll.

Pretty large restaurant with several areas. Upstairs had a private party when we. Dinned and we were near the window of one of the d the two restaurant areas downstairs. We had... More

My friends and I have been here many times and it never disappoints. Recently we came after sailing for a stoli-doli which is absolutely amazing. You must try it! The food is also incredible.

Twenty Two Bowen's is set along the Rhode Island coast in Newport. Yacht's are parked along side the dock where there is both outside (preferable) and inside seating. The service is excellent and the lobster roll is the best my wife has had (and she's had many). Great place for a lunch stop while touring the sights of Newport.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant! I was going out to dinner with a few girlfriends, and something came up and I didn't think we would be able to go to dinner. So I called to cancel, but of course it worked out that we were able to go so I figured they wouldn't be able to... More

We had a large party (11) and asked to be sat outside, which isn't guaranteed of course, but we got a fantastic table outside, right on the harbor. The food was fantastic as well, overall a really great experience! Not cheap, but not ridiculously expensive, either. Great for a night out.

Service was great, no complaints. Had a "prime" NY strip, was not a good piece of meat. I have had better steaks at Outback. Girlfriend had the Risotto, was also just okay. Had creme brulee for dessert and was also just okay.

Loved the location, the atmosphere, the friendly staff and the amazing food. We visited on Sat eve of labor day weekend and it was extremely busy. We arrived a little early and had to wait in the bar area which was lovely but seats were taken by diners so we were standing with our drinks and kind of in the... More
