My wife and I love to take our two grandchildren to Newport 3-4 times per year for an overnight, because they look forward to a little escape from their daily routine of school, etc. They love Newport, it's one of their favorite places to visit. But what they really look forward to is dinner at the... read more

Service was excellent. We went on Halloween weekend in 2015. Food smelled as good as it looked. We enjoyed our meals at the wrap around bar. Plenty of space in the place and we were still able to carry on quiet conversation with each other even though the joint was packed. This is the only place in Newport that had... More

After trying the lobster salad last year, we (along with 3 others) opted to go back. Our group of five all ordered the lobster salad and loved it. We both enjoyed the minimally dressed lobster salad and fresh fruit (strawberries, blackberries, pineapple). Our server was excellent, getting water and bread quickly as well as the salads!

We went to the Red Parrot for dinner after hearing so many good things about this restaurant. This place is so crowded during the summer and we were surprised to see a nice crowd there on a winter week night. The menu was extensive from salads to pizza to burgers to fish and included wine and beer plus other drinks.... More

We have been coming to Newport and dining at The Red Parrot for many years and it remains our favorite place to eat. The menu is extensive and, while they do a great job with the standard fare of burgers, wraps, large salads, pasta and fish, there are also plenty of more adventurous items (such as Cajun or Caribbean) for...

We have been eating in the Red Parrot since the 90's. It has always been a reliable interesting spot for lunch or dinner. A full menu and snappy staff make for a good experience, with plenty of choices. I had a "Lobster Monsta" which I can only describe as Supersized Lobster roll, on cibatta. Oh it had bacon too. You...

Great selection of food, right in the midst of the waterfront and Thames Street, with many restaurants and shops. Coconut shrimp is very good, as if most of the seafood, all being fresh.

The food here could have come from any crappy chain restaurant along the highway in America. The 'extensive' menu just means that they do a lot of things poorly. With all the other good to great dining options around Newport don't waste your time here.

Over the summer, my friends and I enjoy visiting the Red Parrot. The Red Parrot, is a fun spot, right in the heart of downtown Newport. This restaurant is an excellent place to go when visiting, comes highly recommended by most the hotels in Newport, and really is a bang for your buck. We grabbed drinks and food, split the... More
