Another visit. Another FABULOUS FOOD EXPERIENCE.

Don't read about this place..... experience it!!! We go here every time we're in Newport. I make the res months in advance because you really want to sit outside to mix the hustle bustle of the wharf with fine dining. ...and fine it is!

22 Bowen's, as always, was terrific. Fun location and great people watching. That, of course, is the complement to the great food and service. 22 Bowen's is consistently on the mark.

I love a good Lobster Roll and 22 Bowen's makes a fabulous one. Sitting at the outside bar and enjoying some Rose and a fresh delicious Lobster Roll is one of the highlights of Newport. Can't wait to return next summer.

Pretty average fare for the Newport Wharf. Very nice, food is good. Can be a little crowded. Nice staff and good drink selection.

My husband brought me here for my birthday dinner. We requested an outside table and it was a lovely spot. We started out with calamari tubes which were rubbery and there were no tentacles, our favorite. Our waitress (who was very good), told us they usually have tentacles and went to check with the kitchen, but alas, there was none,... More

Great view and ambiance. Located on Bowen's Wharf you can enjoy your dinner outdoors in either the sun or shade. The food is extremely well done with delicious flavor and beautiful presentation.

Our favorite place to eat in Newport. 22B is a great place to grab a quick lunch or relax over dinner. The clam chowder was delicious. The steak was among the best I have ever had. It is in a prime location and has great food, what more could a person ask for.
