A little off the beaten path and worth finding. Excellent service and the food was great. Highly recommend the debris sandwich and hush puppies

The restaurant was clean and the staff was attentive and friendly. But the food was just a little below average. I had a chicken sandwich which seemed to be a frozen pattie then deep-fried way too long and placed on a bun with a fresh...More

A wonderful and unique experience. The menu is amazing and not your typical local cuisine as they offer dishes from all along the Gulf Coast - with their own New England flair. The drinks are wonderful - their "Pain Killer" reminded me of my time...More

Staff are fantastic friendly and attentive. Food is innovative and tasty. Great bar. Outside dining and bar are best on the island. Very quiet setting away from the touristy downtown Newport. Love the marina setting. Worth finding

Inside lacked a/c. Outside at 90F was cooler. Drinks & servers were great. Was underwhelmed by all the food. Fish over cooked the burgers were nothing special. Bermuda chowder unimpressive. All the food was not served at the same time.

We were directed to this restaurant by the Rail Explorer staff. It was a short walk from the end of the bike ride to the restaurant. It is located in a nondescript building on a busy waterfront. Parking seemed to be at a premium. It...More
