“Average restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Went there with a group of friends and it was decent. Medium-rare steak was way more rare than medium. Pasta was good but it's not like that can be messed up. I think for the price, you can find a better restaurant in newport.

“average is stretching it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We had crab cakes, clam chowder and lobster bisque. The crab cakes seem like they were frozen, thawed and then prepared. The chowder and bisque tasted like they came out of a can or some type of a container. I will call it average, but barely because the atmosphere was nice.

“Great place to watch NFL games”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

One of the few places in the Newport area that shows all of the NFL games on Sundays. That combined with good food, a large number of beers on tap and great service, makes this the perfect place to watch the game.

“Awesome place to watch football and have a great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We were in town last weekend and stopped in to watch college football and have dinner. The restaurant has a very cool atmosphere and quite a few nice televisions. We were concerned about not being able to get them to put on a Florida Gator football game when the Red Sox were also on. Not only did they accommodate us but the whole staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good time.

Sat at the bar and had outstanding service from Brian and the other bar tenders. We ordered appetizers and dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The chili was some of the best I have ever had.

If you want an awesome bar to watch some sports while in Newport and also have killer food and drinks...the Gas Lamp is your place!!

We will definitely be back and suggest it to our friends!
