“Will definitely be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Stopped here for a drink on the way home from a night out on Federal Hill. Hadn't been here since it was the Gatehouse years ago, and wanted to check it out since the Newport Restaurant Group took over. Saturday night was extremely busy, but we got 2 seats at the bar within a few mins and really enjoyed being able to see the open kitchen with wood-fired grill, etc. from our seats. The fresh baked bread that we saw on the wood grill was excellent. All of food coming out of the open kitchen looked and smelled so good that we ended up ordering the grilled sea scallop entree to share. It was very, very good. All of the staff, from the hostess to the bartender, servers, and managers were exceptionally courteous and very attentive. And it was obvious that all knew their jobs and did them well, in spite of being such a busy nite. To me, that is a sign of a very well-run restaurant. Can't wait to go back again and try some of the wood-grilled meat specialties...they looked fantastic.

“Amazing view and great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

If you get on the deck, it's a very relaxing and pretty ambiance, but even the inside seating is great. Service was awesome from the hostess to the waiter. I also felt it was reasonably priced, especially if you do their 3 course dinner. Will go again! Tucked away little gem!

“Great atmosphere for private party, good food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Outstanding service, great atmosphere, good food. A wedding rehearsal dinner celebration and the staff was excellent from the initial planning to the wait staff. Private room upstairs with view of the river. Oysters, chicken, steak, vegetarian options all great. Although the restaurant downstairs was crowded, the private room allowed us to have an intimate gathering. Highly recommended.

“Nice waterside dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The food is consistently pleasing here. The atmosphere is very classy, but casual. You should dress a little nicer to fit in. (No shorts, hoodies or flip flops here.)

They usually run a great deal where to people can have a 3 course meal and split a bottle of wine for $50. Great value for what you get!

And the best part is sitting near the water. While the view isn't gorgeous, it is very relaxing.
