On a recent trip to Newport we visited this establishment by recommendation and a rave review. My husband and I were not disappointed! Food was spectacular, service was great, the drinks were even better. By far one of the best salad bars! Making this spot a must each time we visit Newport from now on!

The food was awesome and the service was incredible. Even better that the place was decorated in a fun pleasant way... More
