“Lovely restaurant, delicious food, excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The title says it all. Had a late lunch here on a Friday afternoon, everything ordered (oysters, lobster rolls, a seasonal tomato salad, veggie burger, another app that I can't recall) was tasty. Our server was friendly and neither rushed nor forgot us. Quiet enough for conversation but still well-populated with diners and those enjoying a drink at the bar.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Had a great lunch on the weekend at a table (no waiting) next to the open-air view of the wharf and boats. The vegetarian crepe, and the tuna sandwich my friends had looked great, but the mussels were fantastic. Overall a very good lunch. Would return.

“Dsiappointed, unfortunately.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The Cooke House was recommended by people at the hotel and by some people we met in Newport. But it didn't live up to expectations the night we were there. Had to wait almost forty minutes for our reservation to be filled. Food was OK - overly salted for my taste. Our waitress seemed very stressed and over worked, judging by the amount of attention she was able to give us. Wouldn't go back. A shame.

“A pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

We visited he Clarke Cook on a very busy July week, as the International Tennis Hall of Fame Tournament was in progress, yet we were able to easily book a reservation. The hostesses were very helpful in obtaining a time.

We were seated, on time, at a table by the window looking out into Bowen's Wharf. Our waiter was pleasant and service was quite quick even though the restaurant was packed. The food was excellent even given that I am a seafood junkie. Our view provided lots of entertainment from people passing by.

The Clarke Cook House provided a fun, delicious value. Give them a shot. You will not be disappointed.
