“Nice seafood, nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

In February we went to the Fly N Fish Oyster Bar for Lunch. It was fantastic weather and we had a table in front of the open window. Service was excellent. We took Oysters and Shrimps and a nice bottle of white wine. The quality of the meal was great and this together with the very friendly staff, made it a perfect light lunch.

“Perfect evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Great service, very intimate yet bustling setting. We both had the oyster platter and draft craft beers. Definitely recommend!

“Service and Food both Excellent, in this cozy Newport Pier area little gem of a restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We had a terrific experience last night here! We live locally, walking distance from this newer cute, casual and cozy spot near the Newport Pier. There's just 11 tables, and a small bar, and they don't take reservations, but we didn't have to wait long for a table. Aside from the food being delicious, the service was EXCELLENT, very attentive; There were two waitresses regularly checking in with us, along with a busgirl, and we couldn't have asked for better service! We went in for the Restaurant Week menu, both had their delicious clam chowder, and for mains, we tried their Skuna Salmon and their Linguine with shellfish, which were both excellent...and their bread pudding dessert was wonderful too. Portions were a good size, and we were really pleased with our dinner overall. Next time, we'll definitely order some oysters, and their Happy Hour menu looks great, 3-6pm M-Th...so we will surely be back. These days, we have struggled with mediocre service in the finest of restaurants, so we were quite pleased to find this local gem in our own backyard!

“Great beachside dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Rick and Steve are running a super restaurant on Newport Beach. The quality of our meals was great. They also have small plates if you are not looking for a full meal. The staff was very friendly.

“Fancy! But down to earth service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We stopped in for a drink only but were warmly welcomed and served as if we ordered the most expensive meal on the menu! Our server, Lori K, was attentive but not pushy! I would love to stop in and try their food as it looked and smelled great, next time!
