We enjoyed the fresh apple and mixed green salad and a perfectly prepared crab cake. The fish and chips were fried up crisp and golden with an excellent tartar sauce. The salmon was buttery smooth with an onion risotto that paired well. The space is warm and architecturally interesting. Loved the glass jellyfish lights. Great view right on the harbor.

My wife and I had an early lunch here on 08/23/2016 and it was perfect. We had crab cakes and oysters as our appetizers and Ahi Poki for both our entrees. Brad did an excellent job and we will be back again soon !

Lots of "locals" still come here, but mostly tourists now. This Restaurant was right down where the local Fishing Boats would offload their "Fresh Fish." Still a great place to eat some good local food...

Stopped by here on a recommendation and was pleasantly surprised. Downstairs is more formal and has a dress code. Upstairs is more casual and has the same menu. The happy hour menu is great and so are the cocktails that are listed. Great view of the bay, definitely want to get here early for seating!

Ok, so I have a personal bias against this place, but I have to admit it is fantastic. I've eaten several lunches in the last year and the food is impeccable.

There are very few dining experiences on Newport Bay-- this is one of them. The restaurant is in a refurbished seafood cannery--a return to the Newport of over 70 years ago. Fine dining featuring fish and beef. Fresh swordfish, if available, is not to be missed. Tables indoors and on the patio directly on the water. A special event venue.

Well worth a visit to this classic spot, which has a ton of character with a comfortable ambience for both young and old. The food and service is good, although as might be expected, a little pricey.
