Great clam chowder

After having spent a chilly morning on a sailboat we stopped in for some tasty clam chowder and oysters to refuel for the rest of our day.

This restaurant is run by same company that runs The Moorings and a couple of other restaurants in Newport. There are some seafood items on the menu but the emphasis is on steaks in this restaurant. Had fried calamari to start (a massive portion that is far too much for one), followed by a rib-eye steak. Calamari was tasty and... More

We by chance stopped here and sat outside to people watch. There were many choices on the menu and the lunch portions were generous. The food was a little pricey- but this is Newport! My husband had the fish and chips which was a large portion of very fresh, tender white fish. I had the Kale salad which was quite... More

Nice location overlooking harbour. Food was reasonable but unexceptional. The seafood pasta was enormous, plenty of seafood. The chicken with risotto was also big, but lacked finesse tasting of oxo cubes. Overall this is OK as a simple bistro style restaurant.

We had a lovely evening with Felicia as our server. The food was cooked to perfection. We both had filet mignon and loved the onion soup. The overall experience was very pleasing with a nice view of water and harbor activities.

Visited here on a two day trip and was blown away. I have a nut allergy which was addressed with a very caring staff. Appetizers were awesome, ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and didnt need the sauce it was served with. Service was the best i experienced anywhere ive ever eaten. A+++++ Restaurant on the water.

This restaraunt is awesome!! Their kale salad is so good we went back the next day to have it again! Their clam chowder is also very good. I also have had the filet steak that was amazing as well. I just can't say enough about their food! A definite place to stop if you want superb food.

The view of the wharf and the bay from this restaurant are an integral part of the experience. The lobster fritters and clam chowder are not to be missed! The green salad, while presenting a nice selection of greens dressed in a delicious balsamic vinaigrette, was gritty. (A place like this should know to swish-wash greens with deeply embedded leaves... More

I am not a sea food lover so i ordered chicken and they didn't disappoint. it was delicious and its also the only chicken dish on the menu. My husband had sword fish and loved it. the dessert was fantastic. Salted caramel was to die for. would go again.
