Brought my staff out for a "thank you" lunch. Wanted to make it special so went to 22B. Have had many great dinners here so expectations were high. And they delivered. Great clam chowder. I went simple and had the Portobello and Chicken sandwich. Portions were large. Service was quick. Lunch menu items range from sandwich/salad to full on entrees.... More

We decided to sit on the patio and have a couple drinks and appetizers. You are seated right beside a couple sailboats that take people out on the bay. After we were seated it took awhile for the waiter to show up. But once he did he did a great job. My wife's scallops were seared and brown around the... More

My wife and I were seeking a romantic dinner and we found it at 22 Bowen's. Several Newport locals had told us we had to order a steak and we both are glad we did. This was the tastiest steak I have ever had, and I could not bring myself to put anything on the steak as the natural flavor... More

We went here for dinner to celebrate a special occasion. We had Rocco as our server, and he could not have been more pleasant; he was charming and gave us excellent service. I had the pan-seared salmon with shrimp, asparagus, and a roasted garlic beurre blanc sauce; my husband ordered one of their steaks. Both were fantastic. When they found... More

The restaurant is beautifully located on the wharf, with many tables overlooking the harbor and 2 great outdoor seating areas. For lunch i had the lobster salad, which was ok, but a bit bare, i asked for additional lemon aioli since there was very little on there as well as bread that it didn't come with. The waitress was very... More

We had lunch here and enjoyed sitting in the open air by the dock with boats coming and going. Our waiter was very personable and did a good job. We chose several items from the menu, and would rate them average or a little above. This seemed to be part of a chain or group of restaurants that all have... More

I don't like seafood, so I checked the restaurants before we left and found that they had steaks also. We made a reservation and had a drink at the bar. They make their own bloody mary mix. Excellent! My husband had the scallops and I had the ribeye steak. They were both wonderful. The only problem we had was that... More

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