i keep giving this old resturant chances. Have had service issues at times. A little pricy for the amounts you get at times. But if you go, the hot slaw is a must. No matter what I order, I get the hot slaw.

They have grouper, cod and halibut to choose from for your sandwich. The halibut is award winning and the best in town. My husband got the fish in chips. Fabulous! It's made from cod and they make the beer batter fresh. It's like the old Arthur Treachers from "back in the day". We love this place!

Love the Derby. Was a little worried when it changed ownership but the food remains delicious and the atmosphere is the same. The haddock is out of this world. Service is great; food is great; what more can you ask for?

Wow, I can't say enough about the food and service. Every time we go I say I'm going to try something different, but I can't because the fish-n-chips are so good. It's been around for a very long time, it has a lot of history. It's always been a landmark in Newport. I feel a hundred percent confident that you'll... More

Great place to grab some real food if you are sick of the hustle and bustle of fast food. Step back into a traditional family restaurant with good comfort food.

Greated nicely. Sat in a very crammed room. Food took almost an hour to come out... Three of our meals came out, buy not my husbands... That came out 6 minutes later with an apology.... My pasta was cold and runny.... Never again.

Loved my KY hot brown, lots of great melted cheese. Service was good, nice décor with pictures of the Newport gangster era framed in the dining room we were in. Several groups of ladies having lunch and enjoying visiting with each other. Hubby was only male in the room of about 20!!

Inexpensive, service is reasonable, and food is surprisingly good. Good place to take a large group and still get good service and food.

A group of us stopped here for lunch and several had the fish (grouper and cod). The grilled and blackened fish were fine but the breading on the deep fried cod was too oily and that's usually a sign the oil was not quite hot enough. Everyone liked the slaw but the steak fries were soft and limp - another... More

a nice local place that offers a wide range of traditional fare, from burgers to steaks, and KNOWN for their fried fish. It is a bit pricey but they work hard to provide a pleasant dining experience
