“Casual and welcoming in the heart of Newport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

There are so many bar/restaurant choices in Newport, and having been to many of them I have a good grasp of which are the better ones, and which should be avoided. The Red Parrot is one of the best! While it has a casual, inviting atmosphere, the service and food is fantastic. My wife and I were there alone for a quick appetizer and a few glasses of wine. We sat at the second floor bar where the bar tenders were very professional and friendly. Red Parrot is definitely family friendly...can't wait to come back soon with the kids!

“Rasta Pasta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

This is one of my favorite places to go to eat in Newport. I love the rasta pasta and the surf and turf. The drinks here are amazing thanks to one of the best bartenders Nate. The place is three stories so waiting for a table is not much of an issue and it's right in the heart of Newport!

“Good, but not our favorite place in Newport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We enjoyed the Red Parrot but it wasn't our favorite place to eat in Newport. The atmosphere is nice but nothing exciting. It's a quiet, cozy place to eat. The service was great and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. They have a big variety of items on their menu which is nice if you are in a big group and want to eat somewhere where everyone can find something they will like. The food is good but didn't stand out to me. While everything was good it just wouldn't be our first pick for somewhere to eat in Newport.

“Lobster Nachos!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Ran in for lunch because it was handy and it was raining outside. Ask the waitress what was the best thing on the menu and she said lobster nachos. While in Newport my object was to eat all the lobster I could and this was one of the best examples.

“Our Favorite Newport Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We eat at this restaurant every time we visit Newport. One of the local folks recommended it to us on our very first visit to Newport. We love it. Its very big, with three levels, but at the same time cozy. They have something for everyone. The menu selection is huge. If you are a seafood lover, meat lover, traveling with kids or a vegetarian like me you will find something on the menu. We had a party of fifteen and everyone loved what they ate. The mixed drinks are delicious. My favorite is the mango pina colada. The desserts are fabulous too. Nice big portions as well. We will be back again!
