We visited the Green Derby for a special birthday dinner. The food was tasty, and very affordable. Our waitress was wonderful - on top of everything and had great suggestions. We had a great experience. The building is "old Newport", and could use some updating. But, we felt welcomed and had some great food. The bar area is separate from... More

We had a date here this week. While they do not have a gluten-free menu, they make all the food fresh so it was easy to pick off the menu and or server was knowledgeable of everything. Our service was very good from beginning to end. They have a large draft beer menu with numerous local brews. The menu was... More

An old time resident told me to go to the Green Derby years ago. It was an old Blue Plate Special kind of restaurant, that seemed to cater to the locals. Now under new management, the decor looks the same but with more lighting. Not sure that is a good thing. Same old look, a little tired. Server seemed to... More

We very rarely go to dinner in mid week but we went to the Green Derby. I had the Burgo( I hope this is how you spell it) and it was great. It tasted so good that I took an extra order home for Thursday's lunch. COD sandwich was big and flakey I center. Wife had the hot brown and... More

A little pricey to say the least. Owner and son are... More

OK, it was election night and not very nice weather. I walked in to get a table for 3 of us who were wrapping up a road trip. When you walk in it is confusing. The hallway ahead looks like it goes to restrooms, and the hallway to the left looks like it goes to the restaurant. That's where all... More

It was my first time at the Green Derby because we volunteered at the Hosea House. We stopped in for a quick dinner before going home. The restaurant appears to be pretty popular and a neighborhood gem. The menu is filled with comfort food dishes and even frog legs! I wanted to eat lighter so I had the blackened cod.... More
