Been here a couple of times and will not go to Newport without returning for great food and great service. If you're at the bar, indoor or outdoor seating. It's a special place. Enjoy!

Our favorite restaurant in Newport RHODE ISLAND...On the wharf where you can dine both inside or outside....It is fine dining and costly BUT well worth the price having a meal you will enjoy with great service in addition......

If I set aside the service, 22 Bowen's would deserve a four star rating (and this is the level my son insisted I give). The menu had a great selection of items, the grilled shrimp and lobster corn fritter appetizers were good (though the fritters were a little on the doughy side) and our entrees - scallops, filet mignon and...

Grandson and I had a wonderful lunch here. Asked for upstairs although no one else was seated there yet but quickly filled up. Fish and chips and flank steak salad did not disappoint, nor did the key lime semi freddo, a riff on the usual pie. The Wading on the Wharf vodka cocktail is so refreshing. Have dined a couple...

Had lunch and dinner here during our 4 visits to Newport. Always consistant...salmon and scallops this go around were amazing. Kimberly the GM found a way to make a reservation for a Saturday evening and Dan F. the Asst GM did right by us...service with a smile! Cant forget Holly our waitress she's the best!...that grapefruit beer was amazing Holly.

The meals were perfectly portioned and we got all our dishes in a reasonable time: I could taste the freshness of the ingredients. Our waiter was attentive even though they had a full dining room for lunch.

My wife and I were in Newport for the first time and met a friend I hadn't seen for few years...with no reservations we went to check this place out. The place was hopping...and the hostess was so nice and sorted us out at the bar upstairs. I can't remember the bartender's name, but she was very attentive and took... More

If a low prices dinner is the gol, do not go here. However once there, the atmosphere was delightful, the portions and flavors were wonderful, especially the scallops and the tuna tartar appetizer.
