Great lunch in the Wharf Area of Newport!

Had a very nice lunch here in the wharf/port area. This was a family deaL with my wife, son, daughter-in-law and 2 granddaughters (age 1 and 3). 22 Bowen is an upscale Wine Bar Restaurant with good drinks and food. We had a Lobster Roll, Salmon Filet, A Black Angus Cheese burger, Chowder, and... read more

It was a large and bustling restaurant, so we were pleasantly surprised by the attentive wait staff. We all enjoyed our meals, and the seafood pasta was delicious, as well as the salmon, and chicken dishes.

A top shelf operation on historic and busy Bowen's Wharf, 22 Bowen's is one of the best in the region. The ambiance, service and outstanding food cannot be beat in Newport. A large facility, we chose to eat in their outside dining facility directy on the wharf called Portside. I was with my wife and her two sisters, all of... More

Love this restaurant. They have a great atmosphere, wine list and talented wait staff and chef. The food is great and the effort and time that goes into making it great is apparent. The wine list is well selected and the cocktails are well made. All of this and it's family friendly. If you are a foodie this will satisfy... More

Had the best Lobster Roll of the week here. Chicken salad on roll was very good. The restaurant offered gluten free choices as well (my friend said it was good). Service was excellent and quick. Would like to try for dinner, but there are so many restaurants and just a few days to try as many as we can. I... More

Drove into Newport in time for lunch - decided to return to 22B for lunch, having dined here about 2 years ago for dinner. We were seated outside in shade - perfect - right next to wharf. Lovely breeze with a perfect glass of a Provençal glass of Rose while deciding what to enjoy for lunch. Fabio, our server, was... More

The best meal we had in Newport. Service was great. Food was perfect. They sat us outside in a quiet corner. They knew it was our anniversary and at the end of the meal they brought us out a piece of cake. The waitress was great at her job.

Where to start!?! Atmosphere, food, friendly and classy service. Up from CT with my girlfriend and we found the perfect restaurant. Full range of seafood and steaks. Lobster and corn fritters were incredible. Manhattan was spot on. No room for dessert but struggled to put that menu away without ordering. Johnna was the best server we've had in months. We...

22 Bowen's Wine Bar & Grille is our "go-to" spot for lunch in the summer whenever we visit Newport. Sitting at the outdoor patio or across the walkway at the outdoor bar & patio is always great. The food is always good. The burger's looked amazing - but we opted for the lobster salad and were not disappointed. It was... More
